Shinatama – Astrocide (Part I) now available on cassette and digital
Quietly rising through the past years with two previous releases on Dream Catalogue to date, Shinatama is back to cement themselves as one of the most integral members of our label with Astrocide (Part I), the artist’s most fully realised and ambitious release yet.
Intended to be the first of a set trilogy, the conceptual work is an evolution of 2015’s The Unified Consciousness, bringing similar elements with the unique compositions that are instantly recognisable as Shinatama, and the experimental use of vocaloid, expanding on them into new territory. As the former album was an introspection into existentialism and the human life cycle, Astrocide continues with similar themes of life and death in the grander scope of the astral space as a whole, painting a musical reflection of beauty and tragedy.
Astrocide (Part I), and its predecessors Hello Japan… and The Unified Consciousness, are available now on cassette and digital.
