Basel, Switzerland

Ashtar is a duo from Basel, Switzerland, formed in 2012. They create an intense hybrid of down-tuned archaic riffing, heavy bass and desperately sick vocals with layered, eerie-saturnine melodies. Appearances at such esteemed festivals as Under the Black Sun and Doom Over Vienna underline their crossover appeal to listeners of both black metal and doom and extreme metal enthusiasts in general.
