If you followed aristocracy during his almost four years of life, for sure you saw many times the monicker Norwegian Fester, training led by Bjørn ‘Tiger’ Mathisen, interviewed by me in the past, you will also find our chat scrutinizing the page appropriate, is back in full swing and with a renewed line-up. Mathisen after putting the project to life and Sincere have released the first work, “Cursed And Proud”, also gives new light to Fester, after the best of “The Commitments That Shattered 1991-1992” in 2010, the combo with the input new elements, Andresen Thomas on guitar (formerly of Sincere and Algol and Seance), John Bakker on bass (Gruesome, and formerly of Kampfar Carpathian Full Moon) and session Audun Kleive on drums and Raymond C. Pellicer to treat the electronic and synth, presents the third installment of what appeared to be a journey now discontinued, there is a present “A Celebration Of Death”. The death / black Scandinavian disk age of the person affected by the project and the band uses this to keep her anchored to the past with apparent ease at times, slips below a shotgun start with a dark and ancient “Rites Of Ceres” and “The Black Tower “The ornament of skeletons in places synth sound meager, but heavy going straight to the point could indicate an album far too static, well, not exactly. First we have to say that the strange choice to recruit Audun Kleive a jazz musician who has had little to do with the sound of metal has been guessed, his drumming goes from static to other phases particularly where the dynamics is able to also allegerire the load of brick pieces (in a good way) as “JEG Spytter På Deg” and “Last Day Of Battle Pt 2”, then the decisive change of pace, just to tell the truth but obvious, example is guessed the gait in mid-tempo of “metalized” that stirred the mixture by a viscous drag debris with it and hate it rolls slowly. If the strike of leather has its own because it is equally interesting is the use of electronics which is made ready to adorn the songs, “March Of Death”, “I’ll Hunt You Down”, “Funeral For A Face” and “Rites Of Mortiis” is enriched environments dall’alone nightmarish and deadly, then the last track, as evidenced by the title, with the participation of curator of Mortiis remix “industrialoide”, is a gem in more. The Fester returned to health, it may be objected that the proposal does not cloves for originality, likely, it is also true that “A Celebration Of Death” is pitch black and had absolutely no need to resort to some kind of ploy and super- production to revive fully what was the nature of death / black for a historical realities of Norway that no longer exists. You wanted another “Silence”? In the part of you. There attendevate nothing of value to a come-back like that? Maybe it was better that way, you can now listen to good music again gongolarvi marked Fester.
