dark star

DARK STAR was launched in 1988.

Its music is mostly instrumental, a bastard of electronic, psychedelic and rock elements, arranged in a minimalist way and somewhat dronelike, with lots of analogue synth sounds.

Or, as NØ put it quite effectively in his blog, "post-industrial rock with a psychedelic twist".
