Discovery: Asterous

Asterous are a Canadian alternative rock band with an intriguing sound to their music – Mercenary is their latest release.

By Jane Howkins

Lyrically, Mercenery is the tale of a master grooming his apprentice and the power they have over them, giving the track a dark feel. In terms of music, Mercenary is a rock song with elements of folk, prog and symphonic metal also present – the vocals are fantastic and the main melody is incredibly infectious. This is one of my favourite songs of the year so far so make sure you check out Mercenary below!
