17 years after the release of their last full length album "Silence" Norway’s blackened Death Metallers FESTER return to the scene with a new album entitled "A Celebration Of Death" that is scheduled for a mid-March release through Abyss Records. The CD release will include a 16-page booklet. Flooga Records will be issuing a vinyl version with laminated gatefold and heavy inner sleeve. Total Holocaust Records will release a limited edition cassette version (100 copies only) with alternate, hand drawn cover and artwork. "A Celebration Of Death" features the following tracks: ‘Rites Of Ceres’, ‘The Black Tower’, ‘March Of Death’, ‘I’ll Hunt You Down’, ‘Metalized’, ‘Jeg Spytter På Deg’, ‘Last Day Of Battle Pt.I’, ‘Last Day Of Battle Pt.II’, ‘A Face For A Funeral’ (bonus) and ‘Rites Of Mortiis’ (Remix of ‘Rites Of Ceres’ by Mortiis). The album track ‘Rites Of Ceres’ is currently streaming at the band’s Myspace page. Guitarist / vocalist Bjorn "Tiger" Mathisen elaborates, "FESTER has never made music to please a certain crowd and this dark anthem really proves that darkness and death can come in many different disguises."
