Celladoor – Maktub

Celladoor – Maktub
Self released – 2020
Rock, Grunge, Stoner
Rated: ****

Maktub. It happens as is written. It used to be one of the many monikers I used when I was just a little scriptkiddy doing annoying stuff on the internet back around the early nineties. I got it from the The Alchemist book by Paulo Coelho. I wonder where they got it from? Anyway, not only did the title from the album transport me back to the nineties. So does the sound of Celladoor. It will evoke visions of Nirvana or even Kurt Cobain, but never in a bad way and you realize that it isn’t a bad thing at all. Those visions. Cause the sound is hearty, it will fill you. It doesn’t necessarily try to emulate or sound like the grunge giants, in fact they just take that grunge sound and improve on it. Celladoor’s Maktub seems designed to rekindle your love for grunge. It will bring you even more than that, cause there is that stoner element, that hardrock element and even some punk. But the most important thing perhaps is the simple fact that you just can’t help but admire the outcome, there is something very wholesome about the entire album. You just can’t help but feel fulfilled when listening to Maktub. As if you are finally listening to something coming full circle; or an ouroboros biting it’s own tail. Or a story reaching its poetic and righteous end. Indeed, it happens as it is written and that’s how the Celladoor closes.
