Romantic Metal band Astral Eyes


Are you a true music lover who fondly remembers the days when record companies actually cared about putting out quality music? When music was real? And it wasn't so painful to listen to?

Imagine you invented a time machine. You don't like today's shitty pop music as it is soulless, sterile, and insults your intelligence. So you go back in time and bring back Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, and Wagner and introduce them to Heavy Metal music. You teach them guitar, bass, and drums, and have them work together on the orchestration.

What would that band sound like? Astral Eyes!

Well, you've discovered a band that's studied the best music ever made and managed to modernize it, music unlike anything you've ever heard before. So be willing to give them a chance!

Who I am



Astral Eyes rules Hello, my name is Roman, and I'm a Classically trained composer. I studied Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Brahms, Wagner, Mendelssohn, Chopin, and even some post-Romantic composers like Ravel and Prokofiev.

I love Metal, especially 80s Metal like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Ozzy with Randy, Metallica (while Cliff Burton was still alive), early Megadeth, Slayer, and even some of the Glam stuff like Motley Crue, Ratt, and Poison.

I don't like the current trends in music. I've noticed that music is becoming all about the singer and the musicians, if there are even musicians, are turned down lower and lower so you can barely hear them.

I love music. I enjoy a good vocal line too, and of course the lyrics have to be something you can totally get into. So many of today's lyrics are complete meaningless crap that don't move you. That's why I see so many kids today looking to the past for their music.

Musically, I'm all over the place. My favorites of course are Romantic era Classical and Golden Age Metal, but you'll catch me listening to everything from Prince, Queen, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Rainbow, AC-DC, the Rolling Stones, Abba, Journey, Duran Duran, the 69 Eyes, Loreena McKennitt to Celtic music as well. Of today's Metal, I really like HIM, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, High on Fire, and Nightwish.

-Chef Rafi
(By the way, we did).

"Asian Jack Black with face bending guitar solos!!!"
-Scott F


"I became an instant fan. Very good music, strange performance, a videoclip that resembles me funny bands and singers like Spinal Tap, Beastie Boys, Weird Al Yankovich, Babymetal and Manowar.
Seriously: a mix of things that gone right separately but gone wrong together - and you guys made them right."
-KRS


"I love music. Good shit. Nice solo bad ass lyrics. I dig it. I love the original idea romantic metal too. I think that is the coolest thing. Do your own thing, rock on fellas."

I need your help. I can't do this alone. Making quality music costs money, especially considering we use real orchestral instruments.

So when you buy from us, you not only support the band. You're also keeping the dreams alive for orchestral session musicians and sound engineers, many of whom are heavily in student loan debt. I know a lot of these folks personally and can honestly vouch that they're good people.

We also record our drums and rhythm guitars on top of the line analog metal tape instead of cheap ass digital stuff. You'll notice that drums have some serious power when you turn the music way up. That's because they're recorded on analog metal tape. Does it make a difference? Big time! Listen to the music loudly on high end speakers. We intentionally record the music for true audiophiles.

Don't let quality Metal die! Support the band and subscribe now. And remember to play it loud and tell only your true music loving friends about us!
