CELTIC FROST's To Mega Therion - October 27th, 1985

Celtic Frost leader Thomas Gabriel Fischer spoke to BraveWords about acquiring the artwork for To Mega Therion from H.R. Giger:

"Well Martin (Ain) and I had pored over Giger's Necronomicon, his oversized, standard work constantly. It was basically our bible, we looked at it literally every day. And of course we loved the Satan 1 painting. When we wrote to him in late '83, when I wrote to him in my little letter, handwritten letter, we mentioned that painting and said if it's at all possible, would it be possible to do a collaboration with this painting? And to our astonishment he actually responded. He called us and his then wife also called us, who did his administration at the time, and we began to have regular phone calls, we began to have regular letter exchanges. It was of course before email and so on, and he told me on the phone one day that he had just finished what he called The Red Phase, a series of paintings in red paint, and he said his favourite painting of the series is the only one that hasn't been published yet, and he said, 'If you're agreed to also use that red painting that I love so much, and put it also on the album, I'll give you the Satan 1 for free'."
