Progressive metal quartet Altostratus is bringing even more instrumental goodness to what is currently a thriving genre. The UK based band came onto the scene in 2015 impressing many with their heavy riff-based compositions and headbanging grooves. Their music shows shades of Cloudkicker, Pomegranate Tiger and even a touch of Widek, relishing in the tone and thralls of what makes this type of music so pertinent and palatable. Moreover, they manage to bring a sense of uniqueness to their sound with varied soundscapes and infectious rhythms.
