RIP - Thy Mighty Frost (Celtic Frost: Monotheist)

Was seriously tempted to post something on local politics (eg Zambry talking cock about democratic process, Sultan Azlan Shah in hiding, by-elections etc etc) but thought what the fook. Am sure most of you would prefer some respite & some heavy fooking metal instead.

Me knows this is a bit late but have been listening to this quite a lot. Me forked out RM80 fer what was to be Celtic Frost's final album in 2006. Tom G Warrior had gotten back together with Martin Eric Ain fer this project & what a fooking awesome LP this turned out to be. Voted by Terrorizer mag as album of the year & garnering rave reviews everywhere, it cemented Celtic Frost's reputation as one of the genre's leading lights - heavy, experimental & thought-provoking (it's not fer nothing that they can count on fellow-Swiss surrealist HR Giger as a fan!).

Monothiest is not yer typical sledgehammer metal LP full of headbanging riffage & widdly-twiddly solos. Thy Mighty Frost are known as an avant garde occultist metal band & here they take you on a trip that is dark, disturbing & powerful. Those familiar with their earlier output will recall the eeriness that was Into The Pandemoniuom as well as the ambient noise terror of To Mega Therion.

Shame a clash of personality has spelt the end of this hugely influential band. To download Celtic Frost's Monotheist (2006), please click here: http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ROBBPI1F .

Trust me, this will be well worth yer time. It's a fooking grower. In the meantime, Tom G Warrior is busy laying down tracks with his new band Tryptycon. Me awaits with bated breath . . .

ps: Fer those who want to know what Tom G Warrior is up to, please go to his blog at http://fischerisdead.blogspot.com/ . (Besides recording a new album, he is also the curator at the HR Giger musuem!).

boss, you know la, am not really a fan of CF. surprisingly i am more interested to discuss on the stupidity reporters have to put up with during news conference with that zambry fella. at one point, he snaps before the full question was brought up. hope the guilt in him will eat heart after having a meal off his balls.

Balaji:- and sum more the New Perak Gomen is a Precreation of the wicked...
the whole affair is A morbid tale...where the Former MB is the Dethroned Emperor...
the truth is now imprisoned in the Crypts Of Ray i guess...
