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

By Martijn van den Beukel

After 18 years, the Norwegian Fester again come up with a new longplayer. Lovers were two years ago tickled with a compilation album, but now there is so brand new work on the shelves. A Celebration of Death is the sequel to Silence in 1994 was very well received.

Lovers can rub the hands, because this company is not yet forgotten. Mysterious riffs that both death-black metal-like properties exhibit fester out of your speakers to slow manner. In terms of pace is a little too similar to the work of Pentagram : nice and heavy with an occasional jazzy drum intervalletje (mind you). The vocal work gives a black flick and if you come quickly to the term “black doom”. The production and the mystique surrounding the strings work depends, of A Celebration of Death, a charming listening experience for speed lovers perhaps somewhat too long, but for the slow among us snails delicious to its promise.

The relatively rousing A Face for a Funeral works nicely towards the end that is on industrial-serving manner in the form of Rites of Mortiis . For Alfvoet adepts a must-hear. Perhaps this album would be better if the stick in terms of playing what would be shortened, but otherwise may Fester proud of the result. None everyday costs.
