History

Celestial Season is a regular Deep Purple, a regular Napalm Death, a ...anyway, there were no original members left in Celestial Season!

The band was one of the '90s’ infamous 'atmospheric' bands before discovering Kyuss and changing gears. The style change is one reason so many members have come and gone. The band was formed in 1992 and released a demo called Promises, which became Metal Hammer's demo of the month. Two of the songs appeared on Witchhunt Records' Flower Skin sampler. The band toured with the likes of Sadness, Gorefest and Skyclad and appeared on a Nuclear Blast Death Is Just The Beginning 3. Nuclear Blast was said to be taking over the band's promotion. La Guapa is the band's own label.

Displeased Records released the band's Solar Lovers album with 3 EPs, namely Sonic Orb, Above Azure Oceans and Flowerskin, as a bonus in 2005. Transcending Records re-issued Solar Lovers in 2018. It was originally released by Displeased Records in 1995. The band had called it quits in 2002, but reformed in 2011 and played Solar Lovers live in its entirety and released a re-recorded version of Decamerone as well. One box set was 2020’s The Doom Era. It included The Secret Teachings. Lucas Van Slegtenhorst and Stefan Ruiters were back. Elianne Anemaat was on cello.
