CORONER (SWITZERLAND)


Zurich Metal band CORONER achieved European success with a distinct brand of experimental avant-garde Metal in the tradition of CELTIC FROST developing into post-Thrash executed to the finest precision of detail in true Swiss style. In the first stages of their career the band hardly toured, adding to the mystique. CORONER formed in 1984 as an Alpine trio comprising vocalist / bassist Ron Royce (a.k.a. Ron Broder), guitarist Oliver Amberg, later to join CELTIC FROST, and drummer Marquis Marky (Markus Edelmann). The line-up shifted shape with Amberg's departure and the recruitment of replacement Tommy T. Baron (Thomas Vetterli). Tom Warrior, mainstay of CELTIC FROST, contributed both vocals and lyrics to CORONER's first October 1985 demo, 'Death Cult'. Only 250 hand-numbered copies were manufactured, prominently displaying Warrior's credits on the front cover. Guitarist Tommy T. Baron and drummer Marquis Marky then joined CELTIC FROST's American 'Tragic Serenades' tour as road crew. From then on CORONER were continually blighted by comparisons to CELTIC FROST, not helped by Noise Records, CELTIC FROST's label, signing the Swiss trio for good measure, this association never allowing the act to be truly judged in its own right
