Súl ad Astral is a black metal / post rock project of Stephen of New Zealand. Blending the sound and emotional feeling of black metal and the song progressions, climaxes and melodic aspects of post rock together to form a deeply honest and introspect-driven collection of songs for the "Súl ad Astral" self-titled album. The tasteful lyrics and vocal ability of Michael Rumple (of Desiderium fame) grace a number of songs. All the songs ideas and lyrics are drawn from personal experiences or feelings experienced and arranged as a musical journey.

A huge thanks to Michael Rumple of Desiderium, for contributing vocals and lyrics on tracks 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 (all the tracks haha). I am extremely happy to have worked with a very talented young singer, and hope to collaborate on more material in the future. Another huge thanks to James Parsons for allowing me to use his Axe FX 2 to record guitars and bass - I will be collaborating with James on some different material in the future (hopefully haha). And another huge thanks to Andrew Collett for supporting me in this idea since the beginning of this project. His new project is turning out amazing and I can't wait for everyone to hear his writing. Thanks to Alex Pryle for the creation of the artwork. Thank you to my family for being who they are - caring and supporting me. Thank you to my friends all around the globe. I hope you all enjoy this that I made for you all.
