Ex-Celtic Frost Frontman Reveals a Little More on Bands Demise


Celtic Frost Ex-Celtic Frost Frontman, Tom Warrior Fischer, has posted the following message:

"Success breeds arrogance and, in some cases, boundless self-importance. A mechanism which appears even more preposterous if the attention in question predates a particular person's presence to a major extent and is thus largely borrowed in lieu of being proprietary.

Such conceit. Such ignorance. Such lack of composure and self-restraint.

As I discover almost daily when faced with the aftermath of what has been destroyed and what has been said and done subsequently, I will find it exceptionally difficult to ever exonerate the one I hold largely responsible for what happened and for what transpired after it happened. Even now, thinking of Celtic Frost and the group's final months leaves me feeling physically sick, when it should really be a sense of joy, accomplishment, and pride.

Yes, my sentiments about this might be described as "intense". In the face of what so often was severe adversity, especially during the early years, if it hadn't been for such intensity there would have never been a Hellhammer nor a Celtic Frost in the first place. No surprise, no apologies. I am intense. And so was my attachment to this utterly unique group named Celtic Frost and to what it stood for."
