NEWS RELEASE, May 27, 2007

As we are preparing to write the last chapter of the "Monotheist" tour by
playing our first ever concerts in Australia and appearing yet again at
various festivals across Europe this summer, it is time to reflect on the
events of the past months.

Celtic Frost's most recent show, on May 20, 2007, in Athens, Greece, was the
115th concert of the "Monotheist" tour. Since May 29, 2006, the date of
Celtic Frost's first concert in 16 years, we played Europe's most
significant metal festivals and then crossed the Atlantic to perform 46
shows in the US and Canada, making this the most extensive tour of North
America in Celtic Frost's history.

This was followed, in January 2007, by our first concerts in Japan and, in
March and April, by our most comprehensive tour of Europe so far. We then
returned to the United States for a further 25 concerts in April and May,
this time as special guests to Type O Negative, taking the total number of
concerts played by Celtic Frost in North America since September of last
year to 71. Celtic Frost then returned to Europe to play two further
concerts in Greece.

The reactions we encountered during almost all of these shows were
overwhelmingly positive. There were a great many concerts which can only be
described as truly magic. We owe our audiences immense gratitude, for it is
them who have made this huge undertaking, and, indeed, the return of Celtic
Frost, possible in the first place. We feel deeply honored to find ourselves
in their circle. Much gratitude and respect are also due to Type O Negative
and their crew for both their friendship and the amazingly generous
treatment extended to us.

The Frost bows to all of you.
