Stellagen  are  a  band  from  Australia  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black,  death,  thrash  and  power  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2022  album  "From  Dying  Stars".

  Heavy  riffing  starts  off  the  album  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  power  metal  style.  Black  metal  screams  are  also  a  very  huge  part  of  the  recording  along  with  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  bringing  in  blast  beats  and  thrash  metal  elements  and  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody.  

  At  times  the  vocals  also melodic  sounding  while  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  Death  metal  growls  are  also  added  on  some  of  the  tracks  along  with  some  clean  playing  also  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  along  with  one  song  also  adding  in  a  brief  use  of  acoustic  guitars,  as  the  album  progresses  a  couple  of  instrumentals  can  also  be  heard  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Stellagen  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  melodic  black,  death,  thrash  and  power  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  science  fiction,  fantasy,  literature  and  real  life  experiences.   

  In  my  opinion  Stellagen  are  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  mixture  of  black,  death,  thrash  and  power  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Die  in  my  Mind"  "Beowulf"  and  "The  ENd".  8  out  of  10. - ADifferentShadeOfBlackMetalZine

Sydney, Australia based metal band STELLAGEN's debut album 'From Dying Stars' is set for release on 22 February 2022. 

'From Dying Stars' sees STELLAGEN hit the ground running with 11 songs incorporating elements of death/ black metal, power metal, melodic death and thrash metal, with an emphasis on memorable choruses and engaging guitar harmonies and interplay. 

The key elements of the band's sound are perhaps best summed up via their first single/ video 'Freedom'!

Check out the video!

STELLAGEN formed in Sydney, Australia in 2019 with the simple goal of making metal they wanted to listen to: heavy yet melodic, with memorable choruses and shredding guitar solos, incorporating elements from death/ black metal but with the sense of melody and catchiness of power metal in both the vocals and guitars. 

STELLAGEN features Phil Brown (Vocals/ Guitars), Jimmy Lardner-Brown (Guitars) and Symon Haddad (Bass) with session drums provided by Robin Stone.

The vocals range from death/ black metal growls and screams on one end of the spectrum to melodic clean (yet still 'raw') vocals on the other, with a focus on ensuring each song has a memorable 'hook'. A key feature of the band's style is also the guitar harmonies and interplay between twin brothers Phil and Jimmy, which is backed up by the solid rhythm section of Symon and Robin. Lyrical concepts include real life experiences, literature, and sci-fi/ fantasy. 


STELLAGEN's debut album 'From Dying Stars', released 22/02/2022, is the first part of a musical concept, with the counterpart second album set for release later in 2022. 

'From Dying Stars' is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and all other streaming platforms. 

Physical copies comprising:

- Digipak CD with 12-page booklet; and

- Gatefold red splatter vinyl with 4-page booklet and bonus CD in cardboard slip case, 

are available via the band's Bandcamp page:
