FESTER Prepares To Unleash A Celebration Of Death via Abyss Records
Norwegian pioneers in Blackened Death metal, FESTER has risen from their grave to unleash the fury that is A Celebration Of Death. The band's first offering of new material in 17 years, A Celebration Of Death is a whirlwind of dark musical flavors mixing Black, Death, Thrash, Heavy Metal and Jazz. FESTER returns to celebrate death with this vicious assault of old-school and sinister riffing. This truly is the band's darkest offering to date. Guitarist/vocalist Bjorn "Tiger" Mathisen elaborates, "FESTER has never made music to please a certain crowd and this dark anthem really proves that darkness and death can come in many different disguises."
A Celebration Of Death is scheduled for a mid-March release date through Abyss Records. Album track "Rites of Ceres" is currently streaming at the band's Myspace page. Visit this location to experience the return of Fester!

The cover for A Celebration Of Death was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sodom, Atheist, Sigh, Anacrusis). The rest of the layout was done by Joce of Industrie Chimere Noire (Portal, Ghäst, Total Holocaust). The CD release will include a 16-page booklet. Flooga Records will be issuing a vinyl version of the album with laminated gatefold and heavy inner sleeve. Total Holocaust Records will release a limited edition cassette version (100 copies only) with alternate, hand drawn cover and artwork. For more on Fester, visit the band's Facebook page.
