DETAILS Switzerland's female-fronted Ashtar is an exotic and perfect blend of pagan Black Metal and Doom, with a distinctive European trade mark. Actually they come from a country worldwide known for its high mountains, snowfalls and Celtic Frost!!! 
Ashtar's debut album is the perfect record to listen to at night with candle light, while outside a snowstorm is blazing. You can recognize elements of Celtic Frost, Ludicra, Bathory and Sacrilege. While Ashtar develop these influences one step further and mold their own sonic brand by adding acoustic guitars, string arrangements and didgeridoos. 
"Ilmassari" is a haunting magick album, so rich and dense you'll spin it several times in a row.

- 140gr vinyl

- Printed inner paper bag 
- Mixed and mastered by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Lychgate) 
- Cover art by Alfons Mucha

"Ashtar is a duo from Basel, formed in 2012 by members of Swiss Doom bands Phased and shEver. They create an intuitive, intense hybrid of down-tuned archaic riffing, heavy bass and desperately sick vocals with layered, eerie-saturnine melodies, telling about abyss and beauty, melancholy and chaos"

"There’s something extremely satisfying about this release. From the occult feelings to the Blackened bile; from the Doom aura to the impressive riffs; Ashtar have crafted a release that will appeal to the darkness inside. 
Highly recommended."

"Minds will be blown"
