CELTICA - PIPES ROCK!
What happens when Scottish bagpipes crash into the world of steampunk, symphonic rock and Victorian elegance? Celtica, of course! This hard rock hybrid six-piece quickly became a favourite at Celtic and Scottish festivals all over Europe. Experience the new sound that breaks the traditional limits of the great Highland bagpipe.
Steamphonia, the upcoming 4th album, takes the listener across time to the Victorian age. A magic moment when aristocratic elegance meets daring visionary passion, the steam engine promises to become the modern gate to Utopia, and here, as a scientist, you are also adventurer and romanticist. Celtica transforms this fantastic epoch into music distilled from Gothic, Steampunk, and Metal styles to break all the traditional limits of the Great Highland Bagpipe, and creates a totally new musical context for this majestic instrument.
The symphonic, powerful rock-sound is the main difference to the previous albums. Also it features exclusively original compositions. The guitars are tuned down, there are a lot of double bass-drum parts, and even a 30 piece classical choir widens the sound extremely.
