Lodestar was originally formed in 1996 by three members of legendary British rap-rock band Senser (Heitham Al-Sayed, Alan ‘Lord Hagos’ Haggarty and John Morgan) to fulfil their hunger for a heavier musical palette.
After releasing two killer singles, an eponymous album hailed by the NME as ‘a modern metal masterpiece’ and touring with the likes of Tool, the band ceased operating in 1997.
2024 sees Lodestar resurrected and joined by Charlie Beddoes (Rub Ultra, Trash Palace, Nasty Little Lonely) on bass. Their new material is a beautiful, brutal and esoteric mix of doomy grooves, gutsy onslaughts and eccentric wanderings through a sweetly sinister landscape, inspired by prescient visions, occult symbolism and subtle sensuality. A new album ‘ZONEN’ will be released in April 2024.
