The new album is still in the pressing plant..... I rejected the test pressing because the sound wasn't good at all.... So it has to be done again. No idea how long this will take. What a drag!!!!
So Headspin Records will try to release the vinyl in november!! So many delays.... Now the good news: Sulatron Records has released the CD already!! Also on Bandcamp (download & cd) and many other download shops now!!!
CD OF THE WEEK (Sept 30th) At Starship Overflow
"Without doubt their best album to date"
"The third Astral Son album is a kaleidoscopic blend of mind bending Space Rock, sprawling Acid Rock and propulsive Krautrock which fans of old-school 70s Prog/Psych are really going to dig. The final part of a spaced out trilogy which includes the albums Gurumaya and Silver Moon, Mind’s Eye channels the vibe and spirit of classic “head music”, raiding the far out archives of U.A., Virgin, Ohr and Brain records for inspiration…………..break out the bong Space Cadets, it’s one hell of a trip. Creating spectral, alien soundtracks with dense layers of fuzzed out, distorted, treated guitars and pulsing synths, Astral Son has absorbed the best elements of the more experimental sounds of the 60s and expertly mixed them with the cosmic soundscapes of the early 70s………………….."

March 2016: Sulatron Records has released Silver Moon on CD!!! Needless to say that I'm mighty proud!! This release is generating a lot of attention. Many positive reviews and I've even done some interviews for printed magazines.
And...the coloured vinyl of Gurumaya and Silver Moon are SOLD OUT at the Headspin quarters!! Fortunately I still have some available...
2015 has been a very good year for Astral Son. Silver Moon has been received very well! it even showed up in some 'best of 2015' lists, and I'm very proud of that!!
"One of the discoveries of the year, the kind of trip delivered by Leonardo is very refreshing. He adds a touch of electronic music to a blend of space/psychedelic rock while not going full krautrock. This is one of the most hypnotizing albums on this list."
