CELESTE unveil music video for new single ‘Le coeur noir charbon’

On January 28th, French avant-garde black metallers CELESTE will unleash their new longplayer Assassine(s), produced by Chris Edrich (Gojira, Tesseract, The Ocean, Leprous). With their unique mix of black metal, sludge and post hardcore, and over 500 shows played since their inception in 2005, CELESTE have cemented their status as one of France’s most important underground acts.

Today, CELESTE unveil a new single from their album, the haunting offering ‘Le coeur noir charbon’ accompanied by a video revealing a glimpse of insanity. With this third video heralding the beginning of a new era for the band, the group have managed to create a song showcasing their vast talent – from their tactful sense of atmospheric mood to their grasp of harsh brutality.

The band states, 
“CELESTE’s final act of ASSASSINE(S) had to be the climax of this album. Beginning with blistering bass drums over an almost baroque riffing, this hectic start is part of the most diverse song of this album. Black metal, post rock and post hardcore are blended in this story teller of a song. It also welcomes a guest singer Emily Marks and a guitar sample from Katsuta of Heaven In Her Arms to enrich the band’s universe. Patiently building its pace through dreamy guitars and heartful vocals, CELESTE is bringing tension over and over. It is of course worth every penny, the end of ‘Le coeur noir charbon’ is absolutely relieving and rewarding. The band lets all its passion burst in probably one of the most grandiose riffs the band has ever written.”
