Celestia- Frigidiis Apotheosia: Abstinencia Genesiis (2008)

An absolute black metal masterpiece, in my opinion. This is the new album from the French black metal band, Celestia, which is essentially the one-man project of Noktu, who is a legend in of himself, with such notable acts as Gestapo 666, Mortifera, Genocide Kommando, and Peste Noire. And for this masterpiece, he is joined on synths by none other than Malefic, of Xasthur.  Even though it's only February, I can already safely say this is one of the best black metal releases of the year. 10/10. Highest recommendations. Apparitia/Paragon Productions.
