Battle of the bands
Super Bowl weekend is a good time for one of these match-ups. It is...
Celtic Frost came out of the ashes of Hellhammer and for most of the 80's progressed from album to album. They had one clunker, but rebounded well enough. They displaced a uniquely heavy sound and were not afraid to experiment.
Mercyful Fate emerged in the early 80's and progressed fast behind a duel guitar attack and one of a kind vocals of King Diamond. Unfortunately their first run was all too brief. They did come around again in the 90's.
