And now for something a bit different and a treat for fans of the legendary band Celtic Frost. A trailer has been released for Mark Rudolph's upcoming tribute book Morbid Tales! An Illustrated Tribute To Celtic Frost. The book is the creation of Mark Rudolph, an illustrator and cartoonist who has designed artwork for bands like Carcass, Coalesce and Behold! The Monolith. Watch the teaser now and feast your eyes on the stunning artwork.

The illustrated Celtic Frost tribute book is due out in the fall of 2014 from CV Comics and Corpse Flower Records.



Mark Rudolph explains: "Finally I'm able to share this new anthology that many have been feverishly working on for the better part of 9 months. The second in a trilogy of metal-centric books (see 2012's Satan Is Alive: A Tribute To Mercyful Fate), Morbid Tales! is a less literal take on the subject matter than the Mercyful Fate book, this time documenting fictional/factual history and delving into the world created from Frost's music instead of translating lyrics.

"This time around we have work from Justin Bartlett, Jason McGregor, Bruno Guerriero, Lars Krantz, Chuck BB, Shawn Knight, J. Bennett, Eamon Espey, Ed Luce. Jeremy Baum, Johnny Ryan, Josh Bayer, Jacob Hamrick, J.T. Dockery, Kelly Larson, Kim Holm, Michael Hacker, Mike Erdody, Slasher Dave, Tim Shagrat, Mark Rudolph, Sam Wolf, Tim Sievert, Mark Thompson, Scott Murphy, David Liljemark, Kevin Cross, Rob Mills and a few others to announce soon.

"Forewords from Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates) and Ivar Bjornson (Enslaved) with other pieces from Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), Flo Swartz (Pyogenesis), Ben Ash (Carcass), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Fenriz (Darkthrone), Dan Lilker (Brutal Truth), Jeff Wagner (author of Mean Deviation), Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Greg Macintosh (Paradise Lost), Trevor Peres (Obituary), Scott Carlson and Matt Olivo (Repulsion), Orvar Safstrom (Nirvanna 2002), Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Chris Reifert (Autopsy) and John Paradiso (Evoken). It's a great mixture of musicians and artists this time around.

"And I'm partnering with Kenneth McNabb at Corpse Flower Records (a new vinyl only label) to produce the book and a limited edition LP of covers (to be announced soon) to be released later this year. Stay tuned for more information about preorders (coming up next month) and more peeks inside the book."

Anyone else think Tom Warrior looks a bit feminine there?

Celtic Frost is so ridiculously overrated. Lots of bands released great music in the 80's but Celtic Frost has always been mediocre at best.

Good thing the best thing they've released (Monotheist) isn't from the 80s. It's the only Celtic Frost album you'll ever need.

Wheter you like their music or not they have always had, and continue to have, a huge influence in extreme metal scene, you can't take this away from them. And if there's any doubt just ask the guys in Obituary, Mayhem, Sepultura or Darkthrone just to name a few, or just check out the list of musicians posted above. Taking this into account I think they aren't overrated at all.
