Ever since forming in 2002, Irish band God Is An Astronaut has reigned as one of the premier instrumental groups. With their fusion of intense rock instrumentation, ethereal and emotional soundscapes and transfixing melodies, each of the band’s prior releases has offered a breath taking sonic journey.
New album ‘Epitaph’ is their ninth and comes a decade and a half into a journey that began with 2002’s ‘The End Of The Beginning’. Niels and Torsten Kinsella, twin brothers and co-founders of God Is An Astronaut, are joined again here by long-time drummer Lloyd Hanney. Amongst others, contributions also came from Jamie Dean on keys and Xenon Field on sound design.
