Celestial Son: Saturn's Return

Album Review

Danish alt metallers find themselves too starstruck

You can see where these Danes are coming from (the 90s, specifically) but you can’t quite see where they are going.

This album is littered with obvious signposts to 90s giants: All I Ever Wanted opens in a riff that’s pure Nirvana, Holy Cycle just crosses into this century by opening with a riff that sounds like Schism by Tool, there’s some very obvious Alice In Chains worship, especially in Open Wound’s verse, and the clipped drum sound is straight out of that Los Angeles alt metal scene Deftones were part of.
