TALES OF A THERION Featuring All Star Lineup Members from Death Angel, Entombed, M.O.D and Nuclear Assault Drops Celtic Frost-Inspired "This Means You Die"
Band guitarist Scott Sargeant explains, "It all started with the Covid lockdown videos - I was seeing my peers doing cover songs of other bands. So about a year or so ago, I thought of doing the same thing with friends that I've made during my years of touring... but I wanted to do something a little different. Instead of COVERING a song, I wanted to WRITE a song that would pay tribute to a particular band, but have it be my interpretation of the influence that band had on me during my impressionable years. And in this case it was CELTIC FROST. So I got a hold of Jorgen and told him about the idea and we wrote the song via the wonder of the internet. (He's in Sweden and I'm in Texas). Once the song was written, I called my other long time friends Will, Danny and Juan to see if they would be interested in recording it...And they all really dug the Celtic Frost vibe, song and idea...so here we are."
"It's awesome playing old school metal, with my old school friends. Hail!!" - Danny Lilker
"This song is what I'm all about. I was thrilled to be a part of this project. Long live The FROST!" -Will Carroll
"A true honour to play with these metalheads! We are old and ugly and you can hear it!" -Jorgen Sandstrom
"I couldn't think of a better group of Friends/Frost Heads to write and record this song with."- Scott Sargeant
