We are Astyanax, five musicians united by a deep love for heavy and groovy death metal. The result is what we like to think of as a very unique death metal sound with firm roots in the old school sound (Death, Grave, etc.) mixed with the new school sound (such as Dying Fetus and the "'slam" sound), with a lot of thrash metal influence and bits and pieces of our music showing influence from Doom Metal, Black Metal, a little bit of Melodeath, and even some technicality.
