Mutant Star is a psychedelic trance project founded in 1999 by two members of Demimonde metal band Ankhabut and Afagddu. Love of goa trance and neo-hippie culture was the main reason why they started to compose first psychedelic tracks and founded their own psy project. The project name Mutant Star was chosen according to the same name of Demimonde first studio album which was released in 2000 under the Czech label Epidemie Records.
