Last year, Corpse Flower Records, in cooperation with CV Comics, unleashed Morbid Tales! An Illustrated Tribute To Celtic Frost, a mega 155-page comic with illustrations and illustrated anecdotes from a varied bunch of metal musicians/authors. Edited by renowned illustrator Mark Rudolph who’s crafted artwork for metal giants like Carcass, Coalesce, Battlecross and so many others in addition to regular contributions to Decibel and Metal Hammer Magazines, the book is the second in a planned trilogy of metal-centric graphic novels following Rudolph’s 2012-issued Satan Is Alive; A Tribute To Mercyful Fate.
As a supplement to its release, Corpse Flower will unleash a limited edition LP of Celtic Frost cover tunes this November. Titled Morbid Tales: A Tribute To Celtic Frost, the debilitating 12″ compilation features exclusive cover tracks from Child Bite with Philip H. Anselmo, Persekutor, Acid Witch, Temple Of Void, Municipal Waste, Hayward featuring Scott Kelly and Jason Roeder of Neurosis, Coffin’s Slave featuring Scott Carlson of Repulsion and Evoken all paying tribute to one of extreme metal’s most influential acts. The MP3 bonus track includes Black Anvil’s previously released rendition of “Dethroned Emperor” while a bonus flexi disc boasts a second appearance by Coffin’s Slave with their reinterpretation of Hellhammer’s “Reaper.” Raise your horns!
