Download– To Mega Therion (1985)
Todays entertainment, proletarian literature by swedish writer Fogelström and Celtic Frost. Or to be more precise ”To Mega Therion” their debut album. Heavier, more consistent and more riff laden than most about everything else that was being spat out at the time. A landmark of sorts you might say. Thrash metal with a touch of something a bit more darker, almost black metal sounding. The album cover was painted by swiss surrealist painter H.R Giger , apart from painting the mostrosity that would become the Alien in the movie by the same title, he’s also painted album covers for Emerson Lake and Palmer amongst others.
In contradiction to me really liking this album, I have a lot of bad memories tied to it. For example being accidently hit over the head with an empty beer bottle at a garage concert and passing out whilst ”Jewel Throne” was being played in the background.
