CELESTE BIOGRAPHY 2021
With more than 600 shows all around the world, with appearances in the most prestigious festivals of extreme music (Hellfest, Roskilde, Copenhell, SummerBreeze, Brutal Assault, Roadburn, Psycho Las Vegas, ...), 1 EP and 5 albums, CELESTE has succeeded in creating
its own musical atmosphere, and is today considered as one of the most important band of the "French Avant-Garde Black Metal" scene "This band has become one of the defining groups of their generation. Cult favorites for a notoriously picky group of fans, it's easy to see why CELESTE are viewed as some of the best out there right now" Metal Injection For 15 years, the French metal band has produced an hybrid music, rich in influences, as difficult to define, as it is easy to recognize. Cleverly mixing black metal, post-metal, and hardcore sounds, CELESTE has created a music as singular as it is violent, oppressive, and dark.
"
CELESTE are gargantuan and obscure, mysteriously black. No ray of light can penetrate the darkness surrounding them ». Metal.de
After their EP, Pessimiste(s) released in 2006, the band’s first album was released in 2007 with Nihiliste(s). CELESTE continues to sink into an ever more intense darkness with Misanthrope(s) (2009), then Morte(s) Née(s) (2010) which comes to close the evolution of
the creative process to the extreme limit.

Pessimists, nihilists, misanthropes and deadborns: the history of CELESTE is just as it sounds: negative, gloomy and destructive

In 2013, CELESTE returns with a double album Animale(s). 69 minutes of unhealthy music, pushing the musical universe of the French metal band to its peak. Listed as part of the best metal albums of 2013 by the international music press, such as Pitchfork, Metalhammer or Metal Sucks, Animale(s) consolidate the position of CELESTE among the pillars of the French extreme metal scene.
"Hopefully, their status as one of the most under-recognized hardcore/metal hybrids will soon come to an end."
Pitchfork
In 2017, after several tours, the band returns to the composition and record Infidèle(s), the fifth album. This new opus reveals new shades of darkness to the band's fans and allows CELESTE to conquer an ever-growing audience.
"It’s almost certainly the best black metal record I’ve heard this year" MetalSucks
If the band is recognized for its musical work, it is also famous for the apocalyptic and suffocating experience of its shows, where the audience plunged into a complete darkness and a thick smoke, has only strobe flashes and red beams of the headlamps carried by the
4 musicians to keep their landmark.
"Once you experience the black hole that is CELESTE's insane live performance, there's nogoing back."
Metal Injection
After joining the label NUCLEAR BLAST, CELESTE will release a new album in 2022, recorded and mixed by Chris Edrich (Gojira, The Ocean, Leprous, Tesseract) and will go on an international tour to spread the darkness of its music.
 
 
Conjurer (UK) Extreme Progressive Metal
https://www.facebook.com/conjureruk
The future of British extreme progressive metal lies in safe hands with the debut LP from Conjurer – Mire. A stunning listen, combining Opeth at their heaviest and most dynamic, Mastodon at their earliest, Gojira at their most venomous, Mire is a step up from a young band who are already being championed as ones to watch. Equal turns bleak, dark, stark, and beautiful, The Mire is an album which makes true the cliché “a journey of a listen”. From the apocalyptic opener ‘Choke’ to the haunting soundscapes within the eponymous track, this LP is as impressive in its power as in its multi-layered dynamism. Led by the dual vocal/guitar attack of Dan Nightingale and Brady Deeprose, Conjurer are
a band who are already attracting attention from the metal press and industry. The band have an impressive touring history, despite still being at the very beginning of their journey.
Tours with Weedeater, Conan, Employed To Serve, shows with Rolo Tomassi, Venom Prison, Oathbreaker, and festival appearances at Bloodstock Open Air, Euroblast, ArcTanGent, 2000 Trees, Damnation Fest, UK Tech Fest and more besides place Conjurer in rarefied but highly deserved company. 2019 will see Conjurer take on more than ever with EU festival appearances at Complexity and Roadburn and a 34 date US tour with Rivers Of Nihil - expect more to come
