CELTIC FROST: Back-Up Guitar Destroyed 'Out Of Petty, Pathetic Vengefulness'

January 13, 2007

CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer has posted the following message on his official blog:

"Out of petty, pathetic vengefulness for being confronted, in a highly professional manner one might add, for utterly failing to do his job, one of those who travelled with us in North America in September, October, and November 2006, and was paid by us no less, destroyed one of the band's sacred back-up Iceman guitars as soon as unwatched for a moment after the end of the tour. Pitiable, and as soiled as his physical and mental appearance.

"It is, apparently, his only claim to fame, and the memory of this event shall linger forever within our ranks.

"In just a few hours from now, we will take CELTIC FROST to Japan for the first time in 22 years. I will embark on this journey bearing the recollection of our darkest early days so long ago, when such an undertaking would have seemed all but impossible."

CELTIC FROST and KREATOR last week announced the support bands for their co-headlining tour of Europe. Personally picked by both bands, Dutch thrashers LEGION OF THE DAMNED will be taking over the special-guest slot until March 29 and Swedish black metal act WATAIN will be opening the touring package until then. Afterwards WATAIN will climb to the special-guest position.

In other CELTIC FROST-related news, the Swiss band has confirmed an exclusive headlining show prior to the European tour on March 6 in Zurich at the Mascotte club. More information is available at www.celticfrost.com.

CELTIC FROST will be touring Japan with SATYRICON this month, followed by the European trek with KREATOR and possible festival appearances, before returning to North America and perhaps traveling to South America.

CELTIC FROST's video for "A Dying God Coming into Human Flesh", a song taken from their first album in 13 years, "Monotheist", can be viewed at this location. The fascinatingly gloomy clip was filmed by up-and-coming Swiss director Jessie Fischer (no relation to singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer) in Zürich, Switzerland, in mid-August 2006.
