About this deal

If there is a problem with Celtic Frost in this period it isn’t our problem but unfortunately theirs.

While the recording quality is top notch with the bass really thumping, it still has that slightly tinny and “recorded live” feel you often get from early releases. This box is really an early years compilation, with 5 CDs each in gatefold card sleeves (some with an insert too), thick booklet and poster and more. Replete with iconic cover art by HR Giger, “To Mega Therion” imposes its dark majesty from the off with the orchestral bombast of “Innocence And Wrath”, before launching into the savagery of the hook-laden “The Usurper”. It, and CELTIC FROST‘s previous releases, increasingly received critical acclaim, which emboldened the band to take more risks, to push the boundaries of heavy music even further with their next album. Below you can watch an HD version of the music video for “Circle of the Tyrants” and see the full CD tracklist.Visions Of Mortality features a pace change or two in the song, Dethroned Emperor features touches of Sabbath-esque doom and chunky thrash, a very enjoyable song.

Third disc is the debut full album proper, To Mega Therion, and both at the time and retrospectively, considered a black metal landmark. Dawn Of Megiddo’ is a wonderful example of how the band’s meticulous battle campaign was being realised as an integrated whole as opposed to extreme metal with some odd stuff bolted on, with the addition of timpani played by American drummer Reed St.To report spam or any abusive, obscene, defamatory, racist, homophobic or threatening comments, or anything that may violate any applicable laws, use the "Report to Facebook" and "Mark as spam" links that appear next to the comments themselves.

But, despite these obstacles, the band defended their artistic vision and the result is an astonishing piece of avant-garde art. Due to personal difficulties, Martin was not in the band at that point, and so bass duties for the recording were carried out by session player Dominic Steiner.

But we narrowed it down to three titles and from those titles I personally felt, given what the content of this box set is, Danse Macabre would best represent it. x 12”, 40 page book of photography, and brand new interviews with founding member Tom Gabriel Warrior and a rare interview with drummer Reed St. Replete with iconic cover art by HR Giger, "To Mega Therion" imposes its dark majesty from the off with the orchestral bombast of "Innocence And Wrath", before launching into the savagery of the hook-laden "The Usurper". A 12" x 12", 40-page book, brings together photography — some previously unseen — from the era and brand new interviews with Tom Gabriel Warrior and Reed St Mark.

Into The Pandemonium is one of those rare albums that entirely lives up to its name, a thing of such shifting and seismic beauty, it’s almost still impossible to get a true handle on it, marking Celtic Frost out as not just a band ahead of their time but also one ahead of their space. To prove this, the first track on their first official release is 41 seconds of what sounds like someone screaming in the distance. Number one, we were a small underground band originally, and we never thought that anybody would still talk about this; Hellhammer or Celtic Frost 40 years later, or on a global basis. Third album Cold Lake took a different direction and although I quite like it, it if oft considered too different and one that the band’s record labels now overlook the existence of. Now those recordings will be immortalized in the Danse Macabre box set, out November 25th in North America.
