Celtic Frost, H. R. Giger & Tom’s Deathmasks

So KNAC.com is passing along a press release that has extreme metal legends Celtic Frost playing on June 21st for the 10th anniversary of the H.R. Giger museum in Château St. Germain, Switzerland.  There will partying, mayhem, debauchery. . .you get the idea.  You can read the whole story HERE.

But what I found interesting was the press release’s direct quote that Celtic Frost “will be performing in honor of their long-standing friend and mentor”, H. R. Giger. I’m a huge Giger fan and their connection with the artist is fairly well known (“To Mega Therion’s” cover, most notably). But it does make me wanna ask – “Uh Mr. Giger, can you stop the boys next time from EVER releasing another album like ‘Cold Lake’? Ok, to be fair – it was just Tom – but dammit man, use your influence! Save him from himself!!”

There, I’m better now. We’ve all forgiven Tom, right?

Besides, Mr. Warrior is a bit of an artist himself, it would seem. He’s selling off custom painted ‘deathmasks’ on his Myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/antecedent_death) for a hefty sum of about $400 or so apiece. Selling them out too. Furthermore, if you creep around his official Antecedent Death site a bit (http://selfdeceased.blogspot.com/) you can also find a few prints he’s currently offering in addition to the deathmasks, with the possiblity of more artwork becoming available in the future. It will be interesting to see if any of Giger’s influence can felt in those works – y’know, since they’re buds and all.

And finally, to bring us full circle H. R. Giger has announced he will be illustrating the next Backstreet Boys album. . .KIDDING. I know, I know – not EVEN funny.

Just hated to end on too upbeat of a note.
