CELTIC FROST Frontman Pays Tribute To BLACK SABBATH Guitarist

The current issue of Guitar World magazine includes an in-depth feature on Tom Gabriel Fischer, frontman of CELTIC FROST, who talks about how he started writing music. "I used to sit there and dissect BLACK SABBATH's music," he said. "I was interested in knowing why SABBATH sounded so dark compared to other bands. I tried to follow Tony Iommi's riffs to figure it out, and what I realized is that other bands play their riffs logically. Their tones are in harmony, and it sounds nice because the tones follow each other logically. And then I realised that Tony always plays the tone that you don't expect, and that's what makes it so dark harmonically. I was fascinated by that."
