CELTIC FROST have posted the following on their official website www.celticfrost.com: "In the wake of the events transpiring earlier this year, we, who together formed Celtic Frost in 1984 and together reformed the group in 2001, have discussed the situation and agree that any continuation of Celtic Frost without either one of us would be irreconcilable with our original ideas and detrimental to the group’s legacy. We have therefore jointly decided to lay Celtic Frost to rest for good and to treasure and honor what we have created together in the course of the history of this truly unique band. All that is left to do now is to bow our heads in sincere gratitude and pay respect to Celtic Frost’s audiences and friends who have made this group’s existence possible in the first place. Martin Eric Ain & Tom Gabriel Fischer, Zurich, Switzerland, September 9, 2008."
Tom Warrior has posted the following info about his HELLHAMMER book a while ago in his own blog: "I just returned from Berlin, where I continued work on the design of "Only Death Is Real", the illustrated history of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost, with the book’s layouter, Hendrik Hellige. If all goes according to plan, the book will be in print in 2009 as a large-format and very detailed biography covering the years 1981 to 1985. It also features artwork, flyers, memorabilia, and hundreds of photos, most of which have never been published before. The material we have compiled during the past three and a half years is simply stunning. Even if one is only marginally interested in Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, the book will provide a truly unique glimpse at the early days of extreme Metal."
