Celephaïs is a new German band wandering between Post Rock and Post Black Metal. They have built an unique spiritual world with their beautiful melody. The 25-minute title track is absolutely stunning.
This is slowly becoming one of my all time favourite albums. This is a perfect blueprint for a concept album, it's just one big piece, the songs flow together like butter. Melodies from the beginning come back later but in a different context, the atmosphere of the album is ever moving between the calm beauty of a mountain landscape and the harshness of a cold freezing snowstorm. I hope there will be a CD or Vinyl reissue sometime since I discovered it to late :/ Sumarbrander
