Profile
Eider Stellaire were one of several French bands that modeled themselves after Zeuhl founders Magma. Unlike Eskaton, Archaia, and Shub-Niggurath, however, they converted Magma's trademark sound into a more instrumental form (though, like Weidorje, they did use vocals sparingly). They released three albums, titled I, II, and III, all of which are fairly well-respected in the Zeuhl community (particularly I).
