I’ll be damned. A version of Sidus Atrum of the afterlife with a few squirts of Final Coil’s latest EP just appeared on the RMR review pipe. And that’s something we’ve trouble resisting. Besides, the RMR crew likes nothing more than extracting a totally unknown band from that smelly swamp full of rocky and weedy metallic objects. Up and into the light, so they may shine by themselves and either disintegrate or move on to greater things beyond this ‘zine’s measly reach.

It was also a somewhat tedious and – yes – even boring affair at times. So, where will Celestial Season take us? Spritzy refreshments underway or lukewarm metal parts only?
