Astrosoniq (sometimes spelled A5tro5oniq) is a band from Oss, the Netherlands. They are also known as the „wizards of Oss.“

All of their album covers feature hair growing out of skin. Sometimes a woman, sometimes a man, or sometimes a circle of flesh surrounded by hair.

Musical style

Their musical style is characterized by extremely psychedelic guitar riffs which always push the boundaries of normal rock. The result is stoner rock with a space flavor. „Astrosoniq knows no musical bounds, and there's no sonic trip too far out for them.“ They integrate sound clips from old movies, Wonder Woman episodes and other sources. Most continue the themes of fantasy and space, but some discuss the music itself.
Musical influences

The band cites classic heavy rock artists as their influences, which can be seen in the heavy guitar riffs and drums. However, the band has progressed light years past the style of legendary bands, such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Hawkwind, Funkadelic, Thin Lizzy and KISS.
