Finnish power metallers CELESTY have released the following statement:
“We are sorry to announce that CELESTY will go to indefinite hiatus. During the time when fifth-album songs have been in progress, there has been mixed feelings in the air for a longer period of time now. Situation in the band has come to the point where only solution is to take a break. Will that break be a year or ten, we don’t know, but this is the only way to take the time that we need. This decision is mutual by all members of the band.”
“Vendetta”, the fourth full-length album from CELESTY, was released in March 2009 via Spinefarm Records. The CD, which contained eleven tracks and over sixty minutes of music, featured guest appearances by Stephan Lill (VANDEN PLAS) and Elias Viljanen (SONATA ARCTICA). Suvi-Tuuli Dietrich (ESCAPE) contributed female vocals to the album.
