Formed in Paris in 2008, RISE OF THE NORTHSTAR is a metal band creating their own brand of modern, hyper-heavy rage music. The stylistic background of the five participants speaks very clearly: American hip-hop, brutal groove metal from artists such as Machine Head, Rage Against The Machine, Korn and Deftones.

Millions of views on YouTube music videos paved the way for them, and with their 2014 debut 'Welcame', they showcased their charged and thrash-infused full-length show.

The group prides itself on its fondness for Japanese culture, particularly that of the 80s, and is particularly celebrated in Japan and Asia, where performances are met with packed concert halls.
