Celtic Frost's influence on black metal is something we can still hear and see today. But following their initial disbandment back in 1993, I watched several of my favorite bands in all sub-genres try to capture the magic of the group by recording their own rendition of the classics.
Needless to say, Celtic Frost has left a lasting impression on metal as a whole, and not just the kvlt genre it help spawn. Here are just 10 examples of metal bands, of all kinds, paying homage to one of black metal's first wave greats.
