    I just found this:eek: hope the albums good eh

    New CF album
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The "demands made" past and present relate directly to our artistic freedom and - perhaps even more to the point - our artistic integrity. These topics are extensive (and not: "expensive"), and they are usually connected to a trade-off of control of an album between the record company and the band. The company is usually afraid the band will go too far (especially in the case of CF) to still attain any commerical success and the band is usually concerned about the record company compromising an artistic concept or vision.

    This process is magnified in the case of the new album, because it incorporates an *extremely* wide range of musical material, and some very radical views. Needless to say, this is why the "Probe" album we are working on right now pushes all these principles to the max. As did every other unusual album CF ever did, TMT and ITP.

    As for the financial contents of the contracts on our desks right now: the 1980s are long gone, my friend, and the monetary amounts that are realistic now are outright meager in comparison. Especially for a high-risk album like ours, for which nobody - especially not the band - can guarantee any particular sales figures.

    By the time the album will see the light of the day in 2003, we will have invested *at least* as much money in it as the record company, if not substantially more. We, and I in particular, have been financing the travelling, equipment, writing, and many recording sessions for this new CF album for over two years now, and we will still finance a significant amount of the production ourselves until industry money will come into play. And there is no way in hell any record company will ever reimburse us for all of this, unless the album will be an outstanding success.


    in the name of the the entire band

    Celtic Frost Re-Envisioned

    Starting in the second half of October, Celtic Frost have begun the initial part of the recording sessions for the group's new - seventh - album, tentatively titled "Probe".

    As has been anticipated by a variety of sources, including H2CF's own discussion forum, the group consists of the classic "To Mega Therion" and "Into the Pandemonium"-era line-up of Reed St.Mark (drums/percussion), Martin Eric Ain (bass/vocals), and Tom Gabriel Fischer (voice/guitars/keyboards), along with Fischer's long-time songwriting partner and co-founder of Apollyon Sun, guitarist/producer Erol Unala. After initial meetings with the original members of Celtic Frost in Zurich and New York in summer of 2000, Unala became an increasingly integral and important part of the re-envisioned Celtic Frost in the course of the subsequent extended development and songwriting sessions. H2CF understands that it has been Martin Ain and Erol Unala who together have written some of the forthcoming album's most unusual pieces so far.

    It is expected that a number of guests will also participate on the album before the conclusion of the recordings (at present tentatively scheduled for early 2003).

    The current recording sessions encompass pre-production, basic tracks, overdubs, vocals and initial guest performances. These early sessions are taking place at Oakland Recording in Switzerland, owned by longtime AS and CF engineer and friend, Walter Schmid. Fischer: "We have taken eight songs to Oakland so far, and most of these will be finished to full album standard. Those that won't will still feature basic tracks recorded to album standard, and they will be production demos, later to be worked on to also become proper album songs. In parallel, we are preparing a further handful of new songs and are also still writing fresh material. At some point in the coming months, we will shift the recording sessions to England, where we will also mix the entire album, according to the current plans."

    The recording sessions were preceded by months of writing and pre-production work at the group's rehearsal studio (named "Die Anstalt", on loan from Apollyon Sun) in Zurich, Switzerland, and at Fischer's and Unala's own home recording facilities, Blaswerk and DDR72 respectively.

    The material so far being prepared for possible inclusion on the "Probe" album includes "Silence", "November", "Lore", "Seed of Tranquility", "Beloved" (a substantially rewritten version of "Pearl of Love" from the unreleased "Under Apollyon Sun" album), "Totgetanzt", "Lost Cynic Rover", "Patriarch", "The Dark", "Wanker God", "Winter (Requiem Part III: End)", "Leaves and Hunger", "The Dying I", "Resurgam", along with a cover version (with lead vocals performed by Martin Ain) which the group still keeps under wraps. At this time, some of the songs (such as "November", Totgetanzt" and the cover version) are already fully finished and await mastering.

    Both Ain and Fischer describe the album as "dark, risky, adventurous, strange, and heavy in a variety of ways".
