Celophys – Ammonite


Celophys – Ammonite
Robust Fellow / Iron Hamster – 2015
Metal, Doom, Sludge
Rated: ***

Celophys is a Ukrainian duo that takes the blackened sludge approach to its doom. Two men that take a sledgehammer and completely level everything in sight. On their newest release, Ammonite, they will wreak havoc on your ears and mind within the space of seven tracks. No need for a bass, their guitar only produces that low-end growl. And it soon turns into a droning river of ancient madness. Slow is the operative word here or should we say glacial. For the guys never speed up and just relentlessly keep pounding that ashen anvil. Accompanied by screams and growls there seems to be little light anywhere. Which makes you wonder what produced those funny looking titles like Spaceburger and the faster paced Charlie The Bandit. The Celophys world is definitely one of their own. A world where there is no need for speed or anything resembling grace. No, this is a world for the slow beasts lumbering towards there inevitable demise. And sometimes… We all feel like that…
