Ex-CELTIC FROST Mainman Interviews H.R. GIGER For ZERO TOLERANCE Magazine

In a rare interview, Tom Gabriel Fischer, once of CELTIC FROST and now heading up TRIPTYKON, speaks to Swiss surrealist visual artist H.R. Giger for issue 026 of the UK's Zero Tolerance magazine. The interview, conducted by Fischer over two sessions at Giger's Zurich home, is an intimate and revealing look at the artist's life and work, which has included Oscar-winning designs for the film "Alien", not to mention numerous paintings and sculptures, many of which have graced album covers such as CELTIC FROST's "To Mega Therion" and "Heartwork" by CARCASS. During the interview, Giger reveals to Fischer just how he feels about the use of his art on album covers, and much more.

Fischer's interview with Giger is the inaugural feature in the first of an all-encompassing two-part special on the relationship between extreme music and visual art. Among those sharing their thoughts on Giger and beyond are Jello Biafra, CRADLE OF FILTH, DARKTHRONE and SATYRICON. The story continues in issue 027 when the murky world of censorship is laid bare.
