Seminal avant-garde metal pioneers CELTIC FROST have posted the following message on their official web site:"We are proud to announce an exclusive limited edition CELTIC FROST collector's silver heptagram pendant through CELTIC FROST's Europe and worldwide webstore. "The heptagram pendant is based on the original 1986 version of the 'Morbid Tales' heptagram. The pendant is made from silver, weighs approximately 70 grams (2.2 oz.), and measures approximately 95 mm by 70 mm (3.7" by 2.8"). The master cast for this unique and substantial piece of jewelry was crafted by Eli Livingston, sculptor with the New York workshop producing H.R. Giger's jewelry, where each heptagram is also being manufactured, polished, and finished by hand. "We are very grateful to H.R. Giger's agent, Les Barany, whose facilitation and support made the production of the heptagram pendant possible." CELTIC FROST recently announced the addition of a touring guitarist V. Santura of the German black metal group DARK FORTRESS. The band also revealed that they will play a "limited-duration special guest set of 45 minutes" on their upcoming North American tour with TYPE O NEGATIVE. "In spite of the limited playing time, the band believes that this presents an important opportunity to play for the U.S. audiences again and expand upon the foundation built in the course of last fall's successful 46-date tour of North America," CELTIC FROST wrote in a press release. Due to the preceding co-headliner tour with KREATOR in Europe which will conclude on April 5, 2007, in Hamburg, CELTIC FROST will not be able to play all dates with TYPE O NEGATIVE. Immediately after the final show of the European tour, however, the group will fly to the United States to join TYPE O NEGATIVE for the first time on April 9, 2007, in Chicago and remain with the tour until its conclusion on May 8, 2007, in Baltimore, MD. CELTIC FROST's video for "A Dying God Coming into Human Flesh", a song taken from their first album in 13 years, "Monotheist", can be viewed at this location. The fascinatingly gloomy clip was filmed by up-and-coming Swiss director Jessie Fischer (no relation to singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer) in Zürich, Switzerland, in mid-August 2006.
