Celestial Crown
The Embraced


The Embraced

A real interesting act hits the road from Tartu, Estonia. CELESTIAL CROWN were found in 1999 by lead vocalist Denis, whose intention was to sing in a metal outfit. After and after he was joined by his nowadays band mates and as a first contact with an audience these guys organised a free concert in a garage! Cool idea!! After recording their first Demo “Invasion of Suicidal Angels” they got signed to Doom Metal Records, who should have been responsible for the release of “The Embraced” in 2002. After the company’s bankrupt, CELESTIAL CROWN did not give up believing in their work and so the record is available via the band´s webpage at the moment. As to the music the band creates a cool mixture of doomy melodies, atmospheric keyboards and lots of symphonic elements. Due to that fact and because of Denis´ singing is nearer to screaming than to grunting, I would describe their music as “Atmospheric Black Doom Metal”, which sounds not really easy to understand, but shows that variety of CELESTIAL CROWN´s unique music.
Sure there are parts that may remain of bigger acts, but to be honest, today there are so many bands that remind me a bit of others……
Nevertheless it´s especially the doomy component that makes this band outstanding!
Check out their webpage ,where you will find not only find lots of informations about these guys, but also their current release “Promo 2004”, which is available to download for FREE!
