FESTER (Norway) “A Celebration of Death” CD review

Fester = Godflesh + Coffins + Blut Aus Nord + Cemetery Urn

When extreme metal fans think of Norway, thoughts usually meander to black metal, but there is a hell of a lot more insanity and grim crazy shit coming out of the country than that, and Fester is a prime example. The band gets an “unfair” tag of being “blackened death metal.” Maybe it’s because this album is the first I’ve heard from the band. but in the end it doesn’t matter the style or genre tag amongst the insane amounts of extreme metal genre twists. A Celebration of Death is nauseatingly down tuned – album opener “Rites of Ceres” almost pays a small nod to early Godflesh with a mechanized type repetitive steamroller type core riff that really just sets the hook into any listener that the album is going to be a dark hellish ride all with a tone and style that pushes the “norm” of death metal away. Fester offers a brutal bastard of a record here—rotten death metal at its heart with black undertones a love of all that is doom all equaling continuous blows below Satan’s belt. Fans of super heavy down tuned grizzled festering putrid puss slow churned death this is top shelf shit chug it while you can.
