Formed in 2014, The Erkonauts are an eccentric foursome playing a high octane Metal/Prog with Punk tones, breaking the wheel of genres and conventions without re-inventing it.
After touring the USA, Asia, Europe and Russia, the band released their first album on Kaotoxin Records in 2016, a trip atop a giant rubber trampoline of funky-metal basslines, huge metal riffs, crusty punk vocals and serious Prog.
It has been hailed as one of the revelation of 2016,
ranked #1 in Hard Force Mag, “Best of 2016 (so far)” on MetalSucks.net and Naptser.com
Between 2016 and 2017 the band shared the stage with legends as diveres as Philm, Cradle of Filth, Prong or Samael, and released their sophomore album "I Shall Forgive" on November 10th 2017through Indie Recordings (Wardruna, Cult of Luna, Keep of Kalessin).
"I Shall Forgive" was an intense album to create, made of hard work, sleepless nights, blood and tears. But it's also a really human album a the core, the kind that entertains you, makes you want to move forward; the soundtrack of your best moments in life!
