Celesterre are a band from the Netherlands that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an epic mixture of black, doom and heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 ep "Earth pt. I".
A very dark, heavy and epic sound starts off the ep along with some clean vocals a few seconds later. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and traditional metal style. Black metal screams are also added into some parts of the music along with some spoken words also being used briefly as well as the music also adding in a decent amount of 70's and 80's influences
Acoustic guitars can also be heard on a couple of the tracks which also introduces blast beats onto the recording but keeping the main focus on more of a slow or mid tempo direction, one track also adds in a small amount of chants. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover a different ecosystem with each song.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Celesterre and if you are a fan of black, doom, epic and heavy metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Oceans" and "Forests". 8 out of 19,
