Metal / Celtic Frost's Triptych Revealed
« on: March 23, 2006, 04:06:33 PM »


This album's conceptual ideas not only extend to music and lyrics, but also to the exceptional visual design as created by Michel Casarramona and bassist Martin Eric Ain. Ain comments on the artwork as follows:

"Monotheist is as personal as it gets. So is the artwork to this album. Michel had approached me at the very beginning of the creative process that would turn out to be Celtic Frost's new manifesto, with the idea of developing the art to the music. Both music and visuals served to shape each other just like we, the creators, where struggling with our own personal demons as a group and as individuals. What we have evoked or exorcised within these past years is now bound in form of this “record” for you to behold."

**under side-projects please view "Alchemy", this is a side project I've been involved in with In Memorium's guitarist Mike Krutsinger...it resembles an old-school style "black metal-ish" ambience...more shameless promotion on my part.

Prozak:  I've also informed Mike about IM possibly hooking up with Averse Sefira on this tour.  He doesn't think it could happen this time, but they plan on other "legs" continuing.  Does anyone know if July's AS show at the Extreme Texas Metalfest is their last for the year in the U.S.?

Metal / Graveland
« on: March 02, 2006, 10:01:14 PM »
As with any BM, I'm usually skeptical as to which release best defines the artist in question.  I remember I took a chance with Burzum years ago, and essentially, I'm happy that I did.  Filosofem still remains as one of the more important albums ever released, imho.

Now, as of late, I've been most curious with Graveland.  What release best defines Graveland, if I were to start with an initial album?

I found this review of their latest release to be helpful:

Metal / Celtic Frost looking for new 2nd guitarist
« on: February 19, 2006, 07:13:34 PM »
From celticfrost.com:

Celtic Frost and Erol Unala have chosen separate paths on the verge of the release of their new album, titled "Monotheist". Unala, a long-time collaborator in Apollyon Sun with Celtic Frost founding member Tom Gabriel Fischer, has been a crucial factor in the renaissance of Swiss avant-garde extreme metal band, Celtic Frost.

The necessity of this sacrifice became evident during the creation of "Monotheist". The obligation to his biological family, the responsibility he took on as a patriarch, has led him to lose sight of this family in spirit. We should not blame him. But we did. We have failed to lead him back to the fold, and this lost son did not find his way home. Proof of his creativity will always remain with us in the form of "Monotheist", though.

The greater the sacrifice, the more the loss will be felt. This responsibility is ours. Although the separation has lit the pyre and the smoke is rising, we all feel bound by the code of honor that our past decrees.

Will our God accept this offering?

Only death is real!

Tom Gabriel Fischer, Martin Eric Ain, Franco Sesa.

Their new release "Black One" drones with intensity.  It's also true that their "live-act" is far from anything visually spectacular, but nevertheless, it is painfully audible.

Metal / Warrior meets 1349 and Gorgoroth
« on: December 03, 2005, 04:15:43 AM »
Celtic Frost were very honoured to meet close friends again on the occasion of the Swiss concert of Norwegian groups 1349 and Gorgoroth at La Chaux-de-Fonds on November 12, 2005, which they attended upon invitation by 1349's singer Ravn and drummer Frost.

Ravn had long proposed that Celtic Frost's Tom Gabriel Fischer join 1349 on stage to sing lead vocals for 1349's version of the Celtic Frost classic "The Usurper" (from the "To Mega Therion" album, 1985). It finally happened that night in the French part of Switzerland. The meeting of all three groups presented an opportunity to renew, reinforce, or establish a number of existing and new friendships.

In the meantime, however, Ravn had also sung backing vocals on Celtic Frost's "Temple of Depression", a song scheduled to appear on the limited special edition of Celtic Frost's forthcoming "Monotheist" album. Ravn's contribution was recorded by Peter Tägtgren at Horus Sound Studio in Hanover, Germany, in August 2005, in the course of the final sessions for the new album.

Metal / Burzum 101
« on: July 21, 2005, 12:28:00 AM »


In a search for what black metal would become it became necessary to find out what it meant, and that leads us to a category of black metal bands who are "the conceptualizers," most notably, Burzum, Darkthrone and Immortal. However, it is only Burzum who exceeded the epic with the majestic in terrifyingly abstract and emotional music.
Created to "stimulate the fantasy of mortals," the music of Burzum is vengeance of chaos against the propagation of administrative and technological models for human existence, ideas which demand allegiance to rules and "morality," or the wisdom of mercy and social compromise as seen by Judeo-Christian technocratic society. Thrusting his fist in the face of that evident death-worship, Grishnack enfolds the rejected darkness in the lucidity of structure in the most forebodingly empty and threatening views of the world.
Total nihilism reduces its belief in inherent nothing to nothingness and from that builds to absolutist ideologies which avoid the emptines discovered; Burzum carries this passion in music and lyrics as well as artistic conception and presentation. The includes the darkly organic Pagan neo-Nazi post-Nietzschean philosophies which Varg spouts in fragments to a barely credible and barely listening press. He envisions his ideology and music as a continuation of Nazi Germany in the 1940s as a pagan revolution against Jewish and Christian (Judeo-Christian, including Islam) influence, notably "morality," against which not only Nietzsche but other influential thinkers have railed (Burroughs, Schopenhauer, Wittgenstein, Pound, Shaw).
While unorthodox to the tastes of the public, these political beliefs must be understood for the complex ideological system they express at the approach of the demise of a materialist civilization. In postmodernist thought, we learned that our society operates with a justified "text" of ostensible motivation, and a submlimated "subtext" of desires and natural passions. As society continues to crumble toward moralism in the midst of self-destruction, newer thinkers look away from Judeo-Christianity and Liberalism toward older modes of thought which valued the place of all of humanity in nature before the "moral worth" of the individual.
For more information on the Judeo-Christian basis to materialist civilization in the twentieth century, read Friedrich Nietzsche's "Genealogy of Morals," sections 7-10 (describes the virus of Judaism and Christianity as a cult of psychological dependency and need, resulting in sublimated sado-masochistic power-obedience behavior) or Vaclav Havel's "Power of the Powerless." Also, to understand Vikernes, it is useful to study Northern European culture in its origins from Asia to India, and its history as an independent and noble community that used naturalistic values for the basis of its social structure, in dramatic opposition to the materialist culture to come with the rise of Jewish and Christian immigrants to Europe.
Long before the first Christian appeared in a misty fjord, the Norwegian people had a socialist approach to family, an open and fearless society, a hierarchy of metaphorically symbolic gods, and a world-exploring culture. Their trading partners were mutually considered equals, and their women had more freedom than in any other society on earth. Their values reflected the least of Nietzschean "clever" or "lower" materialist values and the highest of materialist-transcendent "noble" or "warrior" values. During the occupation, Northern Europeans have modified capitalism/socialism and Christianity to their most benevolent forms ever while maintaining one of the nicest places to live in the world with the least hypocritical and vengeful moralistic influence of the civilized nations. European society has suffered its 1,000 years of Christianity and as pro-Judeo-Christian influences in politics and media build in America and the island England, desire for separatism and neutrality is on the rise.
As a result, Burzum stays controversial: not answered, not rebutted, not forgotten and not even carried on. This work is simply enduring as both music and ideological impact of emotion and action.

Martin Eric Ain of Celtic Frost.



From what I've read about the new CF album coming out, I'm looking forward to its release, but unfortunately I also remain skeptical considering their last two releases were shit.  I'm also not an "Apollyon Sun" fan either.
