Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion

Swiss visionaries Tom G. Warrior and Martin Ain were ahead of their time many times. First with Hellhammer, a band so extreme that even the metal underground ridiculed them (now we all know that they were actually groundbreaking and amazing). They decided to dismantle the band and start over as Celtic Frost, outlining the concepts for the new band’s first three records right from the start. All of them would become cult classics. “To Mega Therion” - our Record of the Day - was the second one and the perfect balance between the primal aggression and the artful exploration that made them so special. The eerie atmosphere, the wrath, the riffs, the harsh vocals, the Avantgarde elements. Celtic Frost pushed the boundaries of what can be done in metal at a time when the style wasn’t dissected into countless subgenres yet, inspiring legions of bands in the process. It’s no exaggeration to say that they changed the course of metal history. One of the most important metal bands of all time.
