Biography

Celestial Machine - the very name evokes contrasting images. Formed in 2009 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, the original line-up of Celestial Machine had a fairly clear vision: to move away from their death metal routes and establish a more melodic, but equally heavy sound. This original line-up recorded and released the band’s first album, ‘Stagmata’ in 2011, showcasing a sludgy, guitar driven sound.

Today the band is a six piece, now based in both Saskatoon and Regina, with old members migrating to these new locales and new members being found there as well where needed. The distance between members has not impeded Celestial’s ability to move forward, however. After a Western Canadian tour in August 2011 in support of Stagmata, the band has hunkered down to work on new songs, and a decided evolution in sound has taken place.

Using more clean vocals than in the past, the addition of vibraphone and analog synths to the mix has allowed the band to develop a more melodic sound, such as subtle melody of ‘Desolation’. Likewise while the band’s signature sludgy sound is preserved in songs such as ‘Nipiwin’, (which means ‘death’ in Cree), it seems to have more depth and focus than songs from Stagmata.

These new songs are part of the band’s next album, a concept album about the end of the world, also entitled ‘Desolation’.
