Yaga Este para mi fue sin duda uno de los mejores lanzamientos del 2021, gran trabajo de Rise To The Sky, death doom atmosférico que desde el primer momento que lo escuchas te envuelve en ese ambiente de tristeza y dolor, melodías cargadas de emotividad que te llegan a lo mas profundo, me encanta cuando la música logra hacerte sentir lo que siente el artista, melancolía pura y perfección en cada canción.

christhebass Best international underground Metal act of 2021 to have come out of Chile. Though South America has a fantastic Metal Scene not many people know about the underground Heavy Metal Scene from the likes of Chile and beyond.
Rise To The Sky have created another Master Piece of unique Experimental music that consists of Doom, Funeral Doom, Black Metal and plenty of Symphonic Elements which really stands out. Not forgetting the amazing Cover Artwork that a companies the bands latest offering.*****

With death time stops Your body, gone But in my heart your words remain Our past remains Yesterday prevails “Con la muerte El tiempo se detiene La materia se desvanece El presente y el futuro no existen Solo el pasado queda” Your soul remains in my heart, in my blood With death time stops Your body, gone But you still live, in my heart, in my blood Our past remains Yesterday prevails Just our past remains

about

“With death, times stops, matter fades, present and future cease to exist, and only the past remains.” (Sergio González Bombardiere, 2019).

Upon death, the remaining body is disposed, the person is transformed and keeps living through the ones who remain, in the form of memory, image, and blood. Their past, and the way it molded our lives and destiny, is a perduring reflection of their existence.

**PREMIERES**

Sleeping Village Reviews: "Like unto Rise To The Sky's very best work, Per Aspera Ad Astra is a somber yet delightfully dramatic affair."
www.sleepingvillagereviews.com/premieres/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra-album-announcement-track-premiere

No Clean Singing: "The sound of the song (End My Night) is vast and earthshaking, and it’s beautiful but intensely heartbreaking. The music builds in intensity and panoramic scope as the minutes pass, climbing toward a crest of emotional power, and as it ascends, its immersive effect becomes overwhelming." Islander - No Clean Singing
www.nocleansinging.com/2021/07/09/an-ncs-video-premiere-rise-to-the-sky-end-my-night/

Toilet ov Hell: "This prolific one-man atmospheric doom act debuts the video ahead of a third full-length in two years in September, Per Aspera Ad Astra. This track typifies an emotive, string-soaked LP full of riffs that modulate between heartfelt loss and the solace that follows." - TovH

**REVIEWS**

Metal Temple: 10/10 Score - "Per Aspera Ad Astra is a stunning album, masterfully created music. RISE TO THE SKY is a band that may just well do that due to his immense talent. There is a haunting depth that stands out throughout this album, and definitely puts you in a mood of longing." - Laura Glover
www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/cd_3/r_2/rise-to-the-sky-per.htm

Metal Epidemic - 5/5 Score - "Each and all songs feel like Sergio was taking out his pain of loss and walking the path of healing at the same time. We have lyrics with pure grief but at the same time the presence, through melodies, of a hidden light that leads to the return to life."- Martha Skourteli
www.metalepidemic.com/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra/

GBHBL - 10/10 - "Per Aspera Ad Astra comes from a grief-stricken place and that is something that resonates throughout. It’s an incredibly expressive and sensitive album but one with heavy death and doom at its core. It just so happens that Rise to the Sky twists melody around those heavier elements with such ease." - Carl "The Disc" Fisher
www.gbhbl.com/album-review-rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra-gs-productions/

Angry Metal Guy - 3.5/5 - "Per Aspera Ad Astra is classic Rise to the Sky delivering exactly what it’s so good at delivering: affecting, atmospheric, beautiful death-doom metal. Unsurprisingly, it is reminiscent of past releases but takes good steps towards creating its own identity and advancing the Rise to the Sky formula in a good direction. This is thick, heavy, weepy metal perfect for those autumn days we’ll soon be experiencing." -Twelve
www.angrymetalguy.com/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra-review/

Metal Temple - 10/10: “Sergio’s vocal style is deep and even menacing but its also both pain filled and cathartic….this guy has the ability to display such a wide range of emotions with a deep, brutal style and his music is all the better for it. As both listened to in one setting or on a piecemeal basis, this album comes together each time without fail.“- Justin Wittenmeier
www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/cd_3/r_2/rise-to-the-sky-per_2.htm

Broken Tomb - 10/10 - "En general, este álbum es uno de los álbumes más brillantes este año, aunque es un álbum ambientador, Rise To The Sky debe ser conocido hoy en día. Con cada tema poderoso e impresionante que cubre el álbum, puedes decir que es muy atmosférico y emocional. Cuando lo escuches en la oscuridad, cierra los ojos y te dará algunas imágenes mientras cada pulso dentro de ti se convierte en uno con el viaje musical sentimental en el que Sergio te ha puesto. Una maldita obra maestra de la música que desearía que todos tuvieran el poder de entender. " - Joshua - Broken Tomb Magazine
www.brokentombmagazine.com/2021/08/20/critica-rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra-2021/

Invisible Oranges: "this Chilean doom/death solo project continues to execute at the top of its class: truly emotional metal with powerful vocals and haunting melodies. I really can't get enough of the lead guitar work here." - Ted Nubel
www.invisibleoranges.com/umr-8292021-942021/

A Certain Taste - "Sergio prolifically creates the kind of melancholic doom that makes you wonder what’s happened in his life. Seriously, just listening to his music makes me feel like I’ve lost something, be it a love, a person, or an imagined future. This is grief doom."
acertaintaste.co.uk/review/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra

The Old Coffin Spirit Zine/Portal - "Ainda mais belo que os trabalhos anteriores, o novo disco se revela sofisticado e totalmente preenchido por composições ricas, coesas e permeadas tanto por melodias fortes quanto por arranjos sensíveis e, por vezes, grandiosos, ainda que sempre melancólicos."- Fábio Miloch
theoldcoffinspirit.com/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra-2021/

Mournful Sounds: "Ne derivano sette brani (più bonus track strumentale) evocativi, incentrati sull’intarsio tra atmosferiche tastiere e un efficace lavoro chitarristico anche in fase solista, trovando un’ideale sublimazione nella meravigliosa End My Night" - Mournful Sounds
mournfulsounds.com/2021/08/04/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra/

Brothers in Raw: "Rise To The Sky geniet een stijgende interesse in de underground en dat is volkomen terecht en ook logisch. De man is een vat vol melancholie en weet die te kanaliseren in wondermooie songs die beklijven en meevoeren, die doen beschouwen en laten bezinnen. De hamer van neerslachtigheid slaat op dit ronduit majestueuze album hard en tegelijkertijd zalvend neer." - Kurth De Clercq
www.bro Scorethersinraw.com/post/albums-rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra


Zware metalen - 75/100 Score: "The working pace of this loner is without a doubt admirable, whereby the musical quality also remains intact." - Mr Jingles
zwaremetalen.com/albumrecensies/rise-to-the-sky-per-aspera-ad-astra

Sentinel Daily - "If your heart is black, Rise To The Sky is the music your spirit has been yearning for." - Ferry Templeton
sentineldaily.com.au/ferrum-templors-crusade-of-steel-october-2021/


Cult Metal Flix - 91 Score: "Epic, impactful and, it goes without mentioning, evocative this carries a formidable presence which cannot and should not be ignored!"
