Triptykon/ex-Celtic Frost frontman Tom Fischer has posted the following blog online:
"Even though the events in question are already many months in the past, I continue to be asked almost daily why Celtic Frost broke apart. It's a question to which I know the answer but which is extremely difficult to explain. It is a question, not least, which I pose to myself all the time as well, regardless. As I probably will for as long as I live.
"What a sorry, damp joke Celtic Frost had become behind the scenes during the last few months of the band's existence. It was impossible to continue, surrounded by one whose perpetual preposterous boasts and insolent tirades bore an ever decreasing relation to reality and one who could no longer be bothered and ultimately belied the commitment he had frequently confirmed to me since we began working together again. But then, I had predicted exactly that to his face on more than one occasion.
"There was no remnant anymore of what once was an extremely professional and determined group. Music was no longer even a topic. In the end, determination was met with hatred, literally, on one hand and apathy on the other. I became the only one who truly intended to continue on the course as we set it. Absurdly, I could only do so by leaving.
"What a disgrace. What a disappointment, when we should have - and could have - done it better. What a betrayal of the work we ourselves had put into the band for so many years and the commitment our audiences had granted us so unconditionally. We all shall never again experience anything like it."
