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

by www.metal-zone.be

By Vinnie

“A Celebration Of Death” is the fourth exit this Norwegian group founded in 1989 and whose latest achievement in 1994. Fester keeps going with his Satanic Black Metal but impure (not true for the uneducated) as the group mixes up Black, Thrash, Doom and Jazz. But where Fester really excels, it is in the murky atmosphere, the morbid and heavy riffs, taking the listener by the throat and never let go of the dying. titles present “A Celebration Of Death” are simply a complete success in kind, often taking the listener to walk against (“March Of Death” is the best example with its haunting rhythm, his incantatory voice, sought its battery). Yes, Fester is not content, like many Black formations, to bludgeon his music to the moribund 100 per hour, but plays on the subtle atmosphere. We could just blame the gang to take certain passages in length, but overall, it goes pretty well. Also note that two distinguished guests, Guido St. Roch and Mortiis who came carry a tune. The cover is signed on Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, SODOM, ATHEIST, SIGH, Anacrusis), no less. An album that redefines the future of Black.
