Celestial Bloodshed - Cursed, Scarred and Forever Possessed

Posted on Monday, September 27, 2010

Bleak Norwegian Black Metal that pays homage to the forefathers on a track-by-track basis. The opening title track is pure Gorgoroth (before they fucked fashion designers), and “Sign of the Zodiac” is blatant Emperor theft. “Truth Is Truth, Beyond the God” has a distinct Under a Funeral Moon feel, while “All Praise to Thee” might as well be a Burzum cover. I’m not complaining about the lack of originality, these bands deserve homage. What sets Celestial Bloodshed apart is the vocals. A bit more gruff than the traditional Black Metal rasp, almost like Entombed’s Clandestine. Some of the more intense yells sound like ass, but overall you would really have a hard time not liking this. Especially if you miss Norway’s glory days.
