Celtic Frost’s Tom Warrior is set to perform material from his pre Celtic Frost band “Hellhammer” under the name “Triumph Of Death” but says there will be no Hellhammer reunion.
Hellhammer is a top cult underground band that played from 1982 to 1984 before Warrior formed Celtic Frost.
Hellhammer released one “official release” “Apocalyptic Raids” that received major distribution before the group made the switch to “Celtic Frost” and released the classic album “Morbid Tales” which is a mix of Thrash Metal and early Black Metal.
Along with “Apocalyptic Raids” Hellhammer also released several smaller albums with a widespread cult status following that are commonly bootlegged in the metal underground including, “Triumph Of Death”, “Satanic Rites” and “Death Fiend”.
The live line up called “Triumph Of Death” will begin performing in 2019 and will be featured in France at Hellfest June 21, 2019.
The Triumph Of Death lineup includes:
Tom Gabriel Warrior -(Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Tryptykon) – Voice, Guitars
Mia Wallace – (Niryth, The True Endless, Kirlian Camera) – Bass
Michael Zech (Secrets of the Moon, Odem Arcarum) – Drums
