This makes me kinda sad because Monotheist marked an interesting new direction for the band and I was looking forward to their new one. Oh well. Tom (Warrior) Gabriel seems like a smart guy, so maybe they will reconcile and get back to playing cool music.
“CELTIC FROST singer and guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer has left CELTIC FROST due to the irresolvable, severe erosion of the personal basis so urgently required to collaborate within a band so unique, volatile, and ambitious.”
It was reported earlier in the year that CELTIC FROST was putting together an album tentatively titled “Monotheist Companion” that will feature unreleased songs from 2006’s “Monotheist” sessions and rearrangements of tracks from the album. The disc is tentatively due in the summer.
