Having played more than 500 shows around the world, including appearances at several prestigious extreme music festivals (Hellfest, Copenhell, SummerBreeze, Brutal Assault, Roadburn, Psycho Las Vegas...), with one EP and five albums under their belt, CELESTE has succeeded in creating their own musical atmosphere and are today considered to be one of the most important bands of the "French Avant-Garde Black-Metal" scene.

For 15 years, the French metal band has produced a hybrid music; rich in influences, as difficult to define as it is easy to recognise. Cleverly mixing black metal, post-metal, and hardcore sounds, CELESTE has created a music as singular as it is violent, oppressive, and dark.

After their debut EP Pessimiste(s) was released in 2006, the band’s first full-length Nihiliste(s) followed shortly after in 2007. CELESTE continued to sink into an ever more intense darkness with 2009’s Misanthrope(s), then 2010’s Morte(s) Née(s) which pushed their creative process to its extreme, closing an evolutionary thread.

In 2013, CELESTE returned with a double album titled Animale(s) containing 69 minutes of lethal music - it pushed the French metal band’s musical universe even further. It made its way onto many ‘Best Metal Albums of 2013’ lists in the international music press, with accolades from publications such as Pitchfork, Metal Hammer and Metal Sucks. Animale(s) solidified CELESTE’s position amongst the pillars of the French extreme metal scene.

In 2017, after several tours, the band began working on new material and recorded Infidèle(s), their fifth album. This new opus revealed new shades of darkness to the band's fans and allowed CELESTE to conquer an ever-growing audience.

After joining the label NUCLEAR BLAST, CELESTE will release a new album in 2022, recorded and mixed by Chris Edrich (Gojira, The Ocean, Leprous, Tesseract) and will go on an international tour to spread the darkness of its music.
