ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New Ancient Astronauts First started as a psychedelic experimental band in the mid-nineties. They got themselves onto the Denver stage in 2002. Since then they have been blowing minds with their high energy and positive attitude. Their songs are often aggressive but always honest in their approach. Half of their songs are instrumental as they were expressive enough that they didn't require any words to get their message across.

Westword: September 13, 2007
The opening salvo of Astronautilus, New Ancient Astronauts' second long-player, is the bombastic and campy "Catasteroid." Who else but maybe Blue Öyster Cult could take the idea of a gigantic asteroid about to hit the earth and end all life on the planet as we know it and not only welcome it, but celebrate the possibility in song? Plus, the unspoken cleverness of taking lines from Being There and then writing a spacey surf-rock instrumental called "Peter Sellers" — that's just genius, the ultimate nerd inside joke. Musically, the Astronauts opt for heavy psychedelia akin to the evil vibe pioneered by Helios Creed and his old band Chrome, and employ the saxophone — which is often misplaced in the context of rock — to highlight the sheer audaciousness and ridiculousness of the material. Too weird to fit into metal and too heavy to fit in with the more traditional psych bands, New Ancient Astronauts have released a refreshingly powerful record brimming with imagination and innovation.
