CELESTIAL CROWN
CELESTIAL CROWN
Rebirth
(Symbol Of Domination Productions / Satanath Records)

CELESTIAL CROWN is a band from Estonia that is already active since 1999 and “Rebirth” is their 5th full-length album. The band plays Gothic / Doom Death Metal influenced by bands like ANATHEMA, MY DYING BRIDE or THEATRE OF TRAGEDY. Providing the right soundtrack for the coming winter season, the band starts slowly with the opening track ‘Chaos Reigns Over’ which already shows their nearness to MY DYING BRIDE (without violin) and ANATHEMA during their “Pentecost III” era. Gothic / Death Metal as played in the mid 90s. The band offers all well-known trademarks of this genre. Slow and heavy guitars, spoken effected passages, female vocals and well-dozed keyboards. Only the typical grunts are missing and instead of grunts the vocals are mostly Black Metal styled screams. ‘Beyond The Horizon’ and ‘Collapsed Reality’ come up with really matured songwriting and very well done guitar melodies and solos. Especially the female vocals are well-dozed and not annoying at all. The production is also fine and with a good fitting cover artwork the overall impression of this output is good. Only for the male vocals I would have preferred grunts instead of the screams, while the spoken effected voice is good and delivers a good atmosphere. Fans of this genre and the mentioned bands should give those underdogs a chance. More info about the band can be found here: www.facebook.com/celestialcrown, www.satanath.com/sodp
