Sonny92 Builds on 2017's ep Astral: Death / Birth, which was a kind of precursor to this, their second full-length. It expands on the ep's melding of doom and space rock, making for ever more expansive, yet compelling, compositions. The band are supremely successful in conveying the album's themes - you can almost feel the power of an enormous rocket propelling you onward, as you behold, awestruck, the vastness and majesty of the fiery heavens.

1st Turning Styx It’s one thing to make music that can entertain and captivate. It’s another thing to make music that arrests the senses.
This is what DÖ does so very well - when the vocals come whispering through in Atmosfear you just know that mountains are about to explode.
It silences the room and becomes all that is relevant while it plays - and that is the mark of something truly exceptional. Recommended to any strain of metalhead no matter what you normally listen to. Favorite track: Atmosfear.

"If there was one record that caught me completely off-guard this year, Astral Death Cult would easily be it. Pushing boundaries of doom far beyond this reality and into the next, Dö have created an unexpected masterpiece in a year where so many bands unleashed their strongest albums in years – and in some cases, decades." -Gonzo/No Clean Singing Best of 2019 list (ADC was #1).

"Don’t be afraid to give way to DÖ. They came for our good, even if it means forcing the truth into our brains: ‘Astral Death Cult’ is the best album released in 2019." / The Heavy Chronicles

"On their second full-length release DÖ have conjured up six cavernous compositions that pack more than enough sonic density to deform spacetime and create their own black hole. Just press play, if you dare, and allow yourself to “sail straight into nature’s most ominous destination” where space and time cease to be meaningful ideas." / Fistful of DOOM

"The best stoner/doom album of the last ten years." / Devils Horns Zine

"Few doom albums will be able to touch Astral Death Cult in 2019, simply because it sounds fresh and exciting in an era where most are afraid to create something original. Hail DÖ, for they are the future!" / Astral Noize

"With Astral Death Cult, DÖ has brought themselves to the forefront of all that is heavy. This album could very well be a contender for record of the year." / Outlaws of the Sun

"Astral Death Cult” on timanttinen julkaisu omassa lajityypissään ja yksi vuoden parhaimmista albumeista." / Kaaoszine

"It is safe to say this album is not a one-trick pony." / From Corners Unknown

“It’s truly spectacular and a must listen.” / Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

"Larger than life doomsters DÖ have created an epic of cosmic proportions." / Ghost Cult Mag

"It’s a hard thing to capture the grandeur and ethereal terror of cosmic awareness into one sonic experience, but the welding of sludge, stoner, doom and black metal on Astral Death Cult, the focus is pretty on point." / Distorted Sound
