Having played more than 500 shows around the world, including appearances at several prestigious extreme music festivals, theaters and venues (Hellfest, Roskilde, Copenhell, SummerBreeze, Brutal Assault, Roadburn, Psycho Las Vegas…), with one EP and six albums under their belt, CELESTE have succeeded in creating their own musical atmosphere and are today considered to be one of the most important bands of the “French Avant-Garde Black-Metal” scene.
For 15 years, this French metal band has crafted a hybrid sound that defies easy categorization but remains unmistakable. By skillfully blending elements of black metal, post-metal, and hardcore, CELESTE has created a singular and immersive musical experience, characterized by its violence, oppressiveness, and darkness.
While CELESTE is renowned for their musical prowess, their live shows are equally famous for their apocalyptic and suffocating experiences. Immersed in complete darkness and thick smoke, the audience relies on strobe flashes and the red beams of the musicians’ headlamps for guidance.
“This band has become one of the defining groups of their generation. Cult favorites for a notoriously picky group of fans, it’s easy to see why CELESTE are viewed as some of the best out there right now” METAL INJECTIONRevisit CELESTE‘s most recent album, ASSASSINE(S):
