With To Mega Therion Celtic Frost presented the peak of their excursion into metal, every riff meshing into an excoriating oneiric drone that continually morphs and recycles. Epic visions of Norse cruelty underpin the album’s occult veneer, ever pointing the way forward for black European metal to express the nihilistic credo of carnage at its frozen heart.
