Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto pens introduction to Hellhammer / Celtic Frost illustrated history:

Former Hellhammer/Celtic Frost and current Triptykon frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer and Bazillion Points Books are deeply honored to announce that Nocturno Culto of Darkthrone has written an introduction to Fischer’s upcoming 288-page hardcover book “Only Death Is Real: An Illustrated History of Hellhammer and Early Celtic Frost 1981-1985.”

Nocturno Culto states: “The moment I got the question if I would write these linesI was struck by a sensation of true joyThis joy soon transformed to utter fear because I knewfrom the bottom of my soulwhat impact Hellhammer/Celtic Frost has had on so many people and the development of a darker metal scene.”

“Only Death Is Real” is due to be published in November 2009, the culmination of four years of research, writing, and design. All of the former main members of Hellhammer – Steve WarriorBruce DayMartin Eric Ain, and Stephen Priestly – have contributed to this project, along with primary original Hellhammer/Celtic Frost photographers Martin KyburzAndreas Schwarber, andCsaba Kézér.

According to Fischer: “This is a book about the real Hellhammerthe essence of that groupthe aura it carriedand the truly unique spirit of revolution of the times in which it existedIt is a book about a group of outcasts – about persistencededicationand an utterly personal visionI have worked very hard to make sure it will do justice to the work of a number of very unique people who shared the same ideas at a very unique point in time.”
