CELTIC FROST: Savoring Satan's Balls Until Utter Intoxication

CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer has posted the following message on his official blog:

"Following a short break following the North American tour, having brought the total of concerts performed since CELTIC FROST returned to the stage at the end of May 2006 to 59, we commenced band rehearsals again at our bunker here in Zürich, Switzerland. It is also the first time that we are beginning to explore ideas for music for the next album as a band. The year had been largely dedicated to the live repertoire, and any new music and ideas were thus created individually until now. We also felt honored that Swedish friends and fans Tobias Stranderud, Erik Gustafsson, and Jonas Svensson managed to interrupt their quest to follow the current IRON MAIDEN tour all across Europe to attend a brief CELTIC FROST rehearsal on December 5, 2006, and stay overnight at Franco's [Sesa, drums] place. We shall see them again soon. Not to mention the astounding gift we received from the world's most extraordinary CELTIC FROST fan and collector, Christian Hunziker. We savored Satan's balls until utter intoxication."

As previously reported, CELTIC FROST has announced new tour dates for Japan, beginning in January of 2007, as part of the "Extreme The Dojo" tour with Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON. This marks the first time that CELTIC FROST has ever toured Japan.

CELTIC FROST Japanese "Extreme The Dojo" tour dates with SATYRICON:

Jan. 16 - Tokyo, JPN @ Club Quattro
Jan. 17 - Osaka, JPN @ Club Quattro
Jan. 18 - Nagoya, JPN @ Club Quattro

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.
