The Celtic Frost website has posted the following message:

"Celtic Frost singer and guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer has left Celtic Frost due to the irresolvable, severe erosion of the personal basis so urgently required to collaborate within a band so unique, volatile, and ambitious."

There are no further details at the moment but as soon as there are they will be posted.

I didn't think Tom could leave Celtic Frost, since it's basically his band. That would be like Lemmy leaving Motorhead.

He was the only guy their at the beginning of the Hellhammer demos? How does Tom leave the band if anything dissolve it. We already have a Sepultura without the Cavelara bros we dont need Celtic Frost without Tom. Martin Ain better not f*** with this.

Devastating. After the masterpiece that was Monotheist, I was awaiting more from this band. I'm puzzled tho... Tom *IS* Celtic Frost. Its so weird that only last night I listened to Monotheist again and blogged about forthcoming CF events... and now this. Anyway more at my blog... www.dogmaticblog.com

if you've read tom's book you'd know that Tom is not Celtic Frost.... Both him and Ain created the band together. Only thing Tom ever said was that he put more into it.

also, unfortunatley they were a come-back band and it's going to make it even more difficult for another but if anyone can, it Celtic Frost....I really hope so because I never got to see them play live and I would have loved to see them perform the monotheist album :(

^Not really man. Tom started Hellhammer with Steve Warrior, he eventually added Ain to the band after kicking out Steve than changed the name to Celtic Frost after releasing Apocalyptic Raids. Notice the satanic lyrics of Hellhammer before Ain joined than look at the more occult based ones after he joined.

When a member of a band so important to the band and their image quits. I think the band should just split up.

Thanks POV, Tupac's a true legend. So is Tom Fischer. I'm sure he'll start some new project though and I'm looking forward to hearing it.

Now playing: 2pac- Changes
