Italian legendary Speed/thrash metallers Celtic Hills released their new official video „The 7 Headed Dragon of Osoppo“, taken from the band’s new album ‘Mystai Keltoy’, released on May 15th 2021 via Elevate Records.
Jonathan, the band’s frontman stated:
“The video is a mix between a ‘making of’ and a real live video and which was also a fun for the band during its making, as you can see. The song is inspired by the legend of the Dragon of Osoppo, a terrible seven-headed dragon that afflicted the local population and made their life impossible until a hermit managed to free them from this terrible slavery by killing the dragon.”
Everything “Mystai Keltoy” (which is an enigmatic name that alludes to the Eleusian Mysteries) is inspired by themes ranging from ancient alien civilizations, European pyramids, legends and historical facts of Friuli, as you can already guess from the album cover. The disc was recorded and produced at the Groove Factory in Udine by Michele Guaitoli, a prominent name for being the lead singer of Temperance, Vision of Atlantis, Era.
The formation of the power trio is Simone Cescutti on drums, Jacopo Novello on bass and Jonathan Vanderbilt on vocals and guitars. The cover is hand painted by Sheila Franco, the same girl who painted Blood Over Intents, and represents the myth of the ancient visitors. Jonathan Vanderbilt played and recorded the album with Panico Custom instruments, the Italian sponsor of custom lutherie of Luca Panico di Ravenna, a guitar specially created with the specifications requested by the Canadian guitarist.
Celtic Hills were founded in 2010. In 2020. they sign a recording contract with Elevate Records, with which they release the album “Blood over Intents” and the EP “Schrage Musik”, both in 2020.
In 2021 another album is out “Mystai Keltoy” produced and recorded by Michele Guaitoli singer of Temperance, Vision of Atlantis and Era. The style played is difficult to place in a single vein of metal, as there are many influences ranging from death to power, with sound elements that can also recall a certain type of 90’s thrash. The singing is quite varied, and for some listeners it may seem unusual in a metal band. power, speed and good melodic lines distinguish the band from others. Between 2010 and 2020 they released “Horns helmet fighters” and for the Slovak Music Globalliance they came out on international compilations on volumes 2,3,4.
