CELTIC FROST / To Mega Therion (1985)

This was a seminal work.  You can still hear traces of it today in the Norwegian metal scene.  CF was experimenting with the merging of classical and extreme music.  The idea was still relatively new, and it would be a few years before anyone came along and bettered it.  Today it sounds a little flat unless you can find it on vinyl.  The CD is less than complementary to the classical aspect.  It should sound like Wagner exploring the realms of hell, not like a fart in a concert hall.  Does Tom G go 'Ughh' time and again?  Does a bear shit in the woods?  Of course he does.
