CELTIC HILLS聽comments:
“‘After The Earthquake‘ is a song that tells of the strength and aggregation of the people after the terrible聽earthquake of May 6, 1976 in Friuli.
A text that tells the tenacity, the solidarity for what has gone down in history as the Great Reconstruction of Friuli.
A hymn to remain united and help each other during the tragedies that afflict the peoples of the whole earth.”

CELTIC HILLS are a trio consisting of Jonathan Vanderbilt on guitars and vocals, Jacopo Novello on bass and Simone Cescutti on drums.

The stylistically unwavering formation was brought to life in 2010 – but it was to take a few more years before the world would get wider notice of their rock-solid and independent POWER METAL.
Between 2010 and 2020 they circulated their demo “Horns Helmet Fighters” in the underground.鈥ㄢ↖n 2020, the band finally signed a record deal with Elevate Records, which released the debut album “Blood Over Intents” and the EP “Weird Music” in the same year.

Both releases received excellent reviews from all over the world, while the music videos for these two works even exceeded the best expectations.
So, with great enthusiasm, CELTIC HILLS decided to go back to the studio to record the second album “Mystai Keltoy”, produced and recorded by Michele Guaitoli, vocalist of Temperance, Vision Of Atlantis and Era.
