Biography

There are two bands with the name Ashtar:

1) Ashtar are a Brazilian folk metal band with progressive influences. Their debut album, Urantia, is a thought-provoking combination of Celtic folk, Brazilian folklore, and interesting songcraft. The band began recording their 2nd album in 2008: “From the Otherside” that was meant to be released in 2008 but it has yet to materialize. The band took part to Aspherical Asphyxia Productions 2007 “My own wolf (a new approach)” tribute to Ulver, playing a cover medley of “The marriage of Heaven and Hell”. The music is very organic and down-to-earth, and there are 7 members, each of whom play very distinct instruments:

Paula Mineoka - vocals and whistles
Luiz A. Garcia - vocals, guitars, whistles and keyboards
Eduardo Capella - Guitars
Oswaldo Velasco - violin
Daniel Dobbin - drums and percussion
Rob Gould - keyboards
Fabio Guilherme - bass

2) Ashtar : Cesar Mafra, 26 years (Synthesizers and Mixer), was interested in music since he was young. An unconditional lover of the music and Psy-Trance culture, he noticed that besides being an admirer, he could be a follower. Rendering a desire through the composition of musical production, today, Cesar devotes his whole time and talent tothe art of producing.

    I first discovered Ashtar when my friends and I went to Bloodstock Open Air Festival 2006 in the UK and they blew us away seeing them live. They have the most unique structure to songs and the most beautiful sound - I could peacefully die to tracks 'An Oidhche Dhorcha' and 'Madainn Thrath'. I am in contact with both the lead male vocalist of the band, Luiz Garcia, and also the ex lead singer of the band, Fernanda Gollo who are both amazing. There is no set date for the release of the second album however it should be sometime soon as it was supposed to be released at the end of last year! I literally cannot wait for 'From The Otherside'.
