God Is An Astronaut was formed by brothers Niels and Torsten in 2002.
Based in Wicklow, Ireland, the band released their debut album
“The End of the Beginning” on their own label Revive Records in March 2003.
Their video for “The End of the Beginning” received plays on MTV U.K.’s 120 minute
show and their second video for “From Dust to the Beyond” which had an Anti
war-theme received plays on MTV UK and most European MTV networks.

This album trademarks their intense build ups from serene ambience to searing
intensity. Torsten and Niels who are joined by drummer Lloyd Hanney who was trained by the late jazz drumming legend Johnny Wadham, makes this album a closer representation of their live sound. They are considered by many to be the most intense live act to emerge from Ireland in recent times
