Progressive metallers ASTRA have released the official video for the song ‘Losing My Ego’, taken from the band’s new album ‘Broken Balance’, out now on Scarlet Records. Watch the video here:
Astra announced their return on the scene with their third, long-waited album ‘Broken Balance’, following the critically acclaimed ‘About Me: Through Life And Beyond’ (2006) and ‘From Within’ (2009). The foursome have renovated their sound to make it less focused on the virtuosity of its members and more on a collective effort at putting forth memorable songs with accessible elements, particularly around their choruses. The lyrical concept itself evolves around the different meanings of “change”, as each of these 12 new songs suggest. The guitar riffs range from Symphony X’s precision to Queensryche’s late-eighties/early nineties vibe. The vocal arrangements are superb, suggesting a feel for the best in current metal production but also an appreciation for classic art rock like Queen or Styx, something that most progressive-minded acts lack nowadays.
