FILE UNDER Pagan Blackened Doom
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.
