Celeste specialize in moderately paced, 90s-era black metal, with occasional bouts of energy, but with a larger focus on heavy riffs. Their style is probably most similar to Malsain, Abbath, and maybe even Satyricon?s classic style. What sets Infidele(s) apart from a lot of the more recent black metal releases is how well it is done. The production is clear and powerful, and allows the abundant collection of riffs to simply drive each song forward. Also, despite there being very little melody (in the traditional sense of the word), the songs all get stuck in your head after only a few listens. This is in large part due to how well the riffs were written. Anyone looking for a well-done black metal release that eschews the frantic pace of its peers in favor of a deliberate, riff-filled, black metal album need look no further than Infidele(s). One last thing, they also don?t do the keyboard drenched symphonic thing either, so there?s that.
