Death, Black, Doom and Gothic Metal band infoA - Z
CELESTIAL SEASON

A goth-doom legend. You can track the transition between the Cathedral-type doom into the style as we know it now in their work, although the opposite is also true. As often happens, they didn't realize their own genius and returned to the 70's grooves. Excellent violins/cellos and low vocals.
