Contact the band:


"55 минут хтонической, злобной, мрачной, атмосферной, космической, немного галлюциногенной и потусторонней лавкрафтовской атмосферы - любители подобного не уйдут обиженными, это уж точно."


"Продакшн лонплея сделан очень старательно, нет смысла перечислять детали из которых складывается общее впечатление об альбоме (если вкратце, это оформление и общий звук). Но выдержит ли слушатель эти тонны фуза, хруста, скрежета – это сложно предсказать."


Celophys - Ammonite
(Robustfellow Productions / Iron Hamster Records)
By Chris Barnes
February 5th, 2016

Not too long ago forgoing the bass guitar was heresy, an iconoclastic middle finger towards the legacies of legends of low end like Jack Bruce, Geezer Butler, Cliff Burton and Roger Glover. Who did that sort of thing?? What sort of beast?! That’s way too Punk Rock even for Punk Rock. Now it’s downright fashionable. Or if not fashionable, at least much more economically attractive. It’s far easier to split the profit from your limited edition cassette sales in half vs thirds. A six pack goes a longer ways too.

Which brings us to this release, Ammonite from bass-less Ukranian two-piece, Celophys. For not having low-end, they sure have a lot of low end. In fact I felt downright bathed in low end. In terms of sound, the touchstone (for me) here is Bongzilla. Celophys’s sound is contrasted in that it seems less turgid and resin-baked than their heralded luminaries, and more rooted in the sounds of the universe… ancient ammonites floating in deep sea or stars caving in on themselves. Slow, methodical rhythm that would be almost soothingly hypnotic if they weren’t so jarringly heavy. My opinion did evolve over several listening however and is a testament to how different listening experiences can shape musical opinion. On my laptop, Ammonite seemed corrosive and depressing. I wasn’t digging it. In the car, however, the sound was much less compressed. It floated over and around me vs forcing its way into my skull via my earholes. It was more akin to nodding off on a narcotic thans being hit in the head repeatedly in a very slow fashion.

The duo does away with the Sludge/Doom/Stoner trappings for an unusual obsession with extinct cephalopods. Noted is a distinct lack of pentagrams, inverted crucifixes or any proclivity toward occult imagery which historically has been standard issue in bands of this ilk. There is a subtle reference to Hesh Rock in the marijuana leaves that carefully border the dinosaur skull atop the band’s logo. Paleontology and weed. OK, Im in. The cover of Ammonite is actually quite distinctly un-Metal . It wouldn’t look out of place as a framed print that might be showcased in the office or home of a marine biologist. Song titles are simply and almost transcendently (or paleontologically) coined (“Baron”, “I Saw A Dream”, “Placodont”). Also noted is that Ammonite is available in a limited edition wooden “Nautilus Pack” case with sticker and magnets. Looks great on a shelf. Clearly, some resources and thought definitely went into this. It’s not something you record half-ass in your closet and post to BandCamp. Nicely accomplished.

I may be too old school to formally accept the formal exclusion of the bass guitar in heavy music, but I will definitely acknowledge and enjoy the progression. I like how the band is pushing beyond what is commonly accepted in the genre. Celophys seems less concerned with keeping up with their peers than they are creating their own unique visual and sonic mark.



A guitar/drum duo based in Cherkasy, Ukraine, Celophys issued their third album, Ammonite, last year through Robust Fellow Records. The CD arrives as yet another example of the Ukraine’s burgeoning heavy scene, along with Kiev acts like Stoned Jesus, Bomg, Soom, Mozergush, Ethereal Riffian and others, and brings a noteworthy sense of lumbering across its mostly-extended seven tracks, beginning with 12-minute opener and longest cut (immediate points) “Baron,” which melds slow-grind sludge riffing with deathly growls and rasp, which the charmingly-named “Spaceburger” and the later drumless drone-feast “Caveman Ritual” continue to build out in atmosphere and snail’s-pace intensity. Feedback, massive tonality, plodding groove – these are hardly unfamiliar elements, but drummer/vocalist Alexander Beregovoy and guitarist Miroslav Kopeyka bring about a fervent bludgeoning across Ammonite that should have even the jaded among those who approach it nodding approval. Also noteworthy is the limited-to-53 “Nautilus Pack” which comes in a hand-carved, custom-designed oversized wood case with special graffiti art, a sticker and a pin, as well as the digipak version of the album.
