Nope! The French black metal outfit, a longtime MetalSucks favorite, went and made a new album — their first in four years! — completely under our radar. Not that we’re complaining. Who doesn’t love a good surprise? Especially when it’s as nice of a surprise as new Celeste music! Especially when it’s as nice of a surprise as new Celeste music that was totally worth the wait!

Indeed, Infidèle(s) — that’s what the new album is called, by the way (the parenthetical ‘s’ is a trademark of the band’s album titles) — just hopped its way onto my running list of contenders for Best Metal Albums of 2017. It’s almost certainly the best black metal record I’ve heard this year.

Is it the best black metal record you’ve heard this year? Only way to find out: listen below, courtesy of Metal Injection (you should head over there, ’cause they also have a new interview with the band which is worth a read). The album comes out TODAY! Buy it here.
