From Nuclear Blast Records:

On January 28th, French avantgarde black metallers Celeste will unleash their new longplayer »Assassine(s)«, produced by Chris Edrich (Gojira, Tesseract, The Ocean, Leprous).

With their unique mix of black metal, sludge and post hardcore, and over 500 shows played since their inception in 2005, Celeste have cemented their status as one of France’s most important underground acts and now unveil a new single off their upcoming album soon to be released via their new label Nuclear Blast.

Through punishing palm mute riffing, Celeste explores modern metal sonorities. Mixing raw brutality with a unique sense of melancholia, the French cross new boundaries on »De Tes Yeux Bleus Perlés«.

More metal and filthier, the quartet surprises with an immense downtuned breakdown that sucks you right down into their abyss. Watch the haunting new music video, directed by Grégory Hoeppfner.

Celeste have been breaking the outer boundaries of heavy music for over fifteen years. When they first evolved from the Lyon hardcore punk scene, they were absolutely brutaland entirely unique, delivering extremity on their own terms that they pushed further and further with each successive album. “We just wanted to get darker and more violent,” says drummer Antoine Royer, until 2017’s »Infidèle(s)« saw the incorporation of a more melodic streak. Their most focussed record yet, it was tremendously received, critically adored, and backed with the band’s biggest shows to date.

Its follow-up was always going to be something radical. Even by their own inordinately high standards,however, new record »Assassine(s)« is one hell of a step forward. Even if this album still contains cyclonic walls of guitar, of battering rhythm, and passages of blissful, rushing release. it’s unlike anything the band have ever released; embracing a modern and forward-thinking production, they’re just as complex but more direct, diverse and accessible than before. “Our leitmotif here was to open our minds,” says guitarist Sébastien Ducotté. “We made a real effort to think outside of our box.”

Celeste are:
Johan Girardeau – Vocals, Bass
Guillaume Rieth – Guitar
Sébastion Ducotte – Guitar
Antoine Royer – Drums
