Better than Panzerfaust.



Mmm, no, but better than anything by Gallhammer for sure

Ooh, that's a low blow. It is better than Gloomy Lights, though. Similar to Vanity/Nemesis and the less avant-garde parts of Into The Pandemonium.

I find Vanity/Nemesis superior to Cold Lake and all parts of Into The Pandemonium (which is in my opinion still one of the most overrated albums ever and really not that avantgarde at all) also supperior to this atrocity called Cold Lake.

And to make it clear I have always found Celtic Frost average at best and one of the most overrated bands ever. Thank God they were laughed out of the room when they first released their stuff

I meant they were similar sylistically. Cold Lake is still the bottom of their discography, but it wasn't as bigger departure from their sound as people say. Pandemonium showed that they were already leaving the sound of Morbit Tales/To Mega Therion. And Nemesis is a great song. Good (light) thrash album.

  This album is awful, and makes Metallica's Black Album seem like an absolute masterpiece in comparsion. Just a terrible album, although it's okay for providing a bit of amusement I guess!

  As a fan of early Celtic Frost I've been avoiding this album for years. When I finally found the courage to listen to it I was kind of surprised that it is not as crappy as I had expected. Nevertheless, this is still CF's worst release. The songs are dull and uninspired and most of the things I had liked about this band are missing. I think that their old fans were more pissed off by the change of their image and especially the terrible video for Cherry Orchards than the music itself.

Rating: 1 I find it amusing how somebody has the guts to say that Celtic Frost are overrated when you have a shitload of extreme metal bands that followed in their steps. Fuck, you got a shitload of black metal bands that developed their sound thanks to Celtic Frost/Hellhammer, and a lot of death metal bands as well.

Albums like To Megatherion, Into the Pandemonium and their last, Monotheist are nothing more, nothing less than masterpieces. Period. Even Tom's new project, Triptykon, proves to be a great one too, Eparistera Daimones is one hell of an album. If anything, Celtic Frost contributed enourmously to the development of the extreme metal genres.

All I hear when some idiot goes into the "Overrated " diatribe is "I don't like it and you shouldn't either". Obviously there is a serious denial going on because Celtic Frost wasn't "overrated" . Along with Bathory they laid the groundwork for an ENTIRE genre that STILL cites Celtic Frost as a major influence. So by the "overrated" claim one must disregard the whole genre. YEAH OK! We get it ...blah blah overrated blah blah.....Turn on some Circle of the Tyrants to drown out this noise.

The main reasons that Tom G actually did this barbie doll version of Celtic Frost is: Money was owed to the record company and the most viable thing to make money was to try and get on that 80's mainstream formula. He also had a VERY difficult time that CF was always mentioned as an influence on the black metal church burnings. He blamed himself and distanced himself from that genre.
