Hailing from Germany, the post black metal outfit Celephaïs' disappeared from the underground scene after releasing the EP "Tir n'a n'Og" which was widely acclaimed. Five years later, they are back with the brand new album "Monad" out of nowhere! The new opus is far more progressed based on the previous work with overwhelming atmosphere.
absolutely loving this new, more natural sound. their first albums always had an intentionally cold feel to them, which i enjoyed, but this new sunlight-filled album really comes into it's own.
they keep the mix tight and blurred but now the natural feel of a live drummer is more pronounced.
this is how the mighty EARTH AND PILLARS needed to sound.
crazy good album, and old fans will find this a refreshing new sound. Glitzy Límon
