CELTIC FROST MORBID TALES reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Celtic Frost are a real head-scratcher to categorise, because they arose at a time before the various subgenres of extreme metal became categorised and at points resembled more or less all the different varieties out there. Take their debut, which my gut tells me is mostly in the proto-death camp but could equally be regarded as proto-thrash or proto-black metal. Recorded mere months after the demise of Hellhammer, the material is clearly helped by the improved production values on offer, but whilst most of the songs are decent (aside from the irritating avant-garde dirge Danse Macabre) few stand out beyond the opening Into the Crypt of Rays. Overall there's a sense that the band were still feeling their way at this point; the best was very much still to come.
Time Signature
Visions of "metallity"...

Genre: thrash metal / (early) black metal

"Morbid Tales" offers the listener a type of old school thrash metal which would eventually be considered both a type of proto-black metal and proto-death metal (it is certainly very obvious where Obituary's main source of inspiration lies).

The production and performance are sloppy (but nowhere near Hellhammer sloppiness), which suits this type of raw and dark primitive thrash metal very well. "Into the Crypt of Rays" is a fast paced thrasher, while "Visions of Mortality" starts out at a slower pace, but picks up in tempo. "Procreation (of the Wicked)" contains some pretty heavy riffage, and there's an almost punky edge to "Return to the Eve" and the very fast and simple "Nocturnal Fear". "Danse Macabre" is weird and arty a sort of precursor to Celtic Frost's future avant-garde style.

"Morbid Tales" is an important heavy metal album and crucual in to the history of both death metal and thrash metal, so I think it should interest fans of those genres. Also, if you like dark and primitive thrash metal, "Morbid Tales" is the way to go.
