Celestial Crown
Promo 2004

Celestial Crown hail from Estonia and play a form of
melodic doom metal that is well known from other bands that
feature a combination of slow to mid-tempo metal and keyboards.
In addition the band has multiple types of male vocals and also
female vocals.

For a promo, this release has a very nice production quality and
the instruments all sound good. The music has slower, mellower parts,
and also some heavier parts with growls or screams, while the keyboard
piano has a prominent role throughout all the songs.

The songs, while not spectacular, are well written, with plenty of twists
and variation, although I must say I was not at any point surprised or astounded.

Let me summarise by saying that this is a high quality promo, that
should certainly be checked out by lovers of easygoing, romantic doom metal.
But, with everything said and done, this is a promo, and the overall
quality reflects that, as the release on the whole does not reach
the level of most established bands in the same vein. I don't fear for
the future though. If the band keeps progressing, the upcoming full
length album might be a pleasant surprise.
