Celestia was written in January 2012 and recorded in February 2012. It is the 3rd full-length, focused on atmospheric elements, blasting drum machines and epic guitar melodies. It fills perfectly the gap between Eroberer and Strange Spheres of Hyperborea.
This release is the first one with a high use of vocals, telling stories about space and time in English and German. Vocals were recorded in July in Durothar Studios.

It’s a lot of work getting through all of HDR’s albums, and I have put off several. This is one of them, and I was stupid. This guy is a fantastic guitar player, and this album is very good. I was really surprised how good this album turned out to be. Hard to pick a favorite track. Metallurgical Fire
