Staar was formed in 2009 as a thrash / black metal band in Strasbourg (France) by Thomas and Julien. Since the beginning they have created an uncompromising cold underground sound by using a very minimalistic production and recording most of the tracks on a simple old cassette recorder. Like many underground bands, they reject big productions, loud sound and today’s musical trends. But they pushed things a bit further by using no pseudo and refusing all kind of studio recordings, remaining faithful to their self-made sound philosophy. Between 2009 and 2011 they worked on their first release. During all that period no demo was released, no label was contacted and very little information was given out in order to keep the music secret, waiting for the right moment and taking the time to do things right. After two years of silence, Staar released their first eponymous album talking about their war to defend a true and dark musical lifestyle. Here is a new stone in the wall of underground metal resistance.
