"Astrolabe" (we changed the name in the beginning of 2002) was found at the fall of 2001 in Jyväskylä Suomi Finland.We noticed that we have quite same musical intrests and started to play some songs.
Our music is based on emotions and atmospheres and also groovy rhythms and melodic riffs. There are few bands which have
influenced more than the others in the musical way of Astrolab...The gathering, Faith no more, Pink floyd and Radiohead.
At this page you can hear some samples of our songs.
