Fester Plans to Record New Album in 2013

FesterAfter 18 years of silence from death metal veterans Fester, they are planning to record a follow up album to 2012’s A Celebration of Death.

The band did a recap of this year and explained the plans for next year: “When Fester released their first album in 18 years earlier this year it felt like coming home. Even though 18 years is a long time it felt good to be back. There’s something quite special about the feeling of transcending primal feelings into music… The album got to be our darkest and coldest to date and it felt just right to entitle it A Celebration Of Death even though it actually was a rebirth…

We have always felt like the beast under the bed, like the fifth wheel on the wagon, like the wound that won’t heal, but nevertheless: we are our own beasts and we will continue to make these expressions without trying to please a certain crowd. To those who stand tall with us: – Don’t EVER let anyone pull you down and make you feel less. Be proud and stand in the shadows with a pleased grin. We are looking forward to record another album in 2013, and we salute those who will take part in our obscurity, and we wish you all the best for 2013! Play loud and stay proud.”

  • I am with you on that. The latest album was amazing considering the amount of time since the one before that. I just assumed it was a one time deal. Glad to see that it is not.

    Great news!! I enjoyed their last album ALOT and I think few bands mix genres like they do.
