Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

I've filed this under black metal, but that pigeonhole should be taken lightly when concerning Celesterre. The band mixes a standard heavy metal formula into doom-style pacing and black metal tremolo riffing. There are even a few aggressive vocals throughout the release, although for the most part the vocals are kept clean. I've got to hand it to Celesterre as I can't say I've heard much, if anything like this before. The release is very rough around the edges, but there is a definite wealth of potential that could be uncovered if the band are given the chance. Performances are good, the riffs are interesting, and the production is perfectly archaic.

I'd say this was worth checking out, if at least to hear what these guys are doing. The album cover is pretty interesting as well, and totally fits the music on offer. The mammoth, doom-laden "Scourge From The Azure Sky" is the track to check out here. Give this one a try!
