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 . . .
