CELESTY: 'Vendetta' Artwork Unveiled

The cover artwork for "Vendetta", the fourth full-length album from the Finnish power metal band CELESTY, can be viewed below. Due on March 11 via Spinefarm Records, the CD features eleven tracks and over sixty minutes of music. Samu Oittinen began mixing the album in early December, which proved to be a daunting task: At times there are over 300 tracks playing. The epic soundscape is reinforced by an orchestra consisting of musicians from the Tampere City Orchestra, and a professional choir. The orchestration and the choir parts were arranged and produced by the conductor Kalevi Olli, renowned for his work with the Finnish National Opera.
