6, AD ASTRA is an electroindustrial/IDM/EBM/experimental project of Belarusian musician Bes Trefoil, who is more known as mastermind of death/thrash/industrial metal band BARRACUDA and black metal band Medievil.
7 AD Astra is Croatian female vocal ensemble.
AD ASTRA was started in 2001, when Bes went in for different kinds of electronic music and desided to create something in this sphere. Actually, Bes is much more metal, than electronic musician, but his comparative untutoreness in electronical music led to a fairly interesting and original songs' sounding and arrangements.
In 2003 Bes finished first AD ASTRA album called "Cyber Spirit". It was released in Minsk by Vladislav Buben' label "Lost World Productions". AD ASTRA participated in various electronic and industrial CD- and DVD-compilations and appeared in radioshows' playlists.
When free from work with BARRACUDA and Medievil, Bes continues to work on the new stuff for AD ASTRA. So in not far future we may hear the next album...
7, Black metal band from Thessaloniki, Makedonia, Greece.
Ad Astra has risen in the unholy spring of 2002, at Thessaloniki with guitarist Stellar Magus and vocalist Streamer. Very soon Chaos Hierophant joined the band with his storming kind of drumming. Some time later Morgoth set up to perform the bass. With this line-up Ad Astra wrote, performed and recorded their first band-titled promo/demo. Then some line-up changes took place when Morgoth found to perform the keyboards and Grim was there to be the session bassist. When Morgoth temporary left the band due to personal matters, Orestis (Dawn of Division) took his place over the keyboards and set his majestic form to the band. ?For Those..? recording comes to verify what was already foreboded, some months later. Showing scorn to humanity, Ad Astra is by its nature a desolate type of art and attitude. Painfully conceived music and lyrics that mirror part of our lives constitute the Ad Astra concept. Black metal cannot by its own, portray our musical intentions so we name it "Supreme Sidereal Art". ... And that is our will ... To the Stars!!!
