CELTIC FROST - "The Album Will Come Out When It Will Come Out"
September 18, 2005, 13 years ago
CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer has issued the following brief update via his official blog:"(We're) at Oakland Recording (in Winterthur , Switzerland), working on final issues. So many things are taking place these days, seemingly all at the same time. And, no I won't shut up, and the album will come out when it will come out."
As previously reported, Celtic Frost have completed their new studio album, tentatively titled Dark Matter Manifest, their first in 13 years and the culmination of some three and a half years of songwriting and recording work. Although the album was largely produced by the band themselves and financed by their own production company, Celtic Frost enlisted HYPOCRISY/PAIN mastermind Peter Tägtgren to co-produce with them the final recording and mixing sessions at Horus Sound Studio in Hanover, Germany, in August/September 2005. Negotiations with a variety of labels are currently underway, and the album is scheduled for a release in early 2006. Having declined innumerable reunion show propositions over the years, Celtic Frost once again deemed it essential to manifest themselves creatively with a new album before embarking on the live circuit next year. Original Celtic Frost members Tom Gabriel Fischer (voice and guitars) and Martin Eric Ain (bass) are joined by Erol Unala (guitar) and Franco Sesa (drums).
