    Side A/B - 180 Gram Black w/ Gold Specs
    Side C/D - 180 Gram Black

    It is pitch-dark, except for some strange flickering red lights, and the small parts of space they illuminate are drenched in turbulent fog and driven by a ferocious force. This force is nothing but the infernal sounds that cut the air, savagely pressing on your eardrums and squeezing your chest. Celeste stand out from their French compatriots by being hard as nails. Their sound is dense and punishing. It befits the bleak riffs and scathing vocals, which suggest black metal with steel armor plates. In reality, Celeste blend their own sinister brand of fury; metal meets sludge; doom meets post hardcore. Natural progression has brought well fitted samples along with piano & strings to their repertoire. Celeste is 'the now'; Celeste is 'the future'. DENOVALI RECORDS

about

Celeste are not what you would call happy bunnies. We have no idea what they’re screaming about (rather inconsiderately, all their lyrics are in French), but if we had to hazard a guess as to their overriding message, it would be this: you’re all fucked! ‘Misanthrope(s)’ is an utterly relentless record, both soul-cavingly bleak and psychologically harrowing, blending equal parts doom, sludge and caustic hardcore with lingering touches of black metal malice. With zero deviation from this formula, it does become grueling after a while, but then again, maybe that’s the point. Abandon hope all ye who enter here…
