CELTIC FROST Announce North America Tour In Support Of Monotheist

Legendary Swiss metal band, CELTIC FROST, have announced two months of North American tour dates supporting their forthcoming May 30th release, Monotheist. Commencing Sept. 11th and running through November, the extensive tour will reintroduce the band’s mesmerizing live performance to their ravenous fanbase. Also scheduled are European festival performances throughout the summer. Their first studio album in 13 years, and four years in the making, is an extremely dark, inventive, and radically heavy release. When asked what fans can expect from the tour and the new album, vocalist/guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer said, “CELTIC FROST are very proud to announce their most extensive tour ever of the North American continent. In anticipation of Century Media‘s May 30th, 2006, release of our darkest and heaviest manifest to date, the Monotheist album, we are preparing a collection of truly morbid old and new CELTIC FROST music. Join us at these special services of worship and be part of the reappearance of one the world’s most fervent and passionate visions. We will be honored to welcome you.” CELTIC FROST have returned to metal’s helm, steering the genre into uncharted waters — again. Formed from the remains of seminal death/black metal pioneers, HELLHAMMER, in June 1984, the band continue to be a pivotal influence on both the extreme metal and gothic metal genres. Establishing many of the musical elements that have since become synonymous for today’s modern metal, the band saw every one of their releases in both the U.S. Billboard and UK charts. Co-produced by Peter Tägtgren and with guest vocal appearances from Lisa Middlehauve (XANDRIA), Satyr (SATYRICON), and Ravn (1349), Monotheist is a testament to why every metal band performing today owes allegiance to CELTIC FROST.
