I know there has to be some Celtic Frost fans here. I just came across Celtic Frost's "Vanity/Nemesis". I was blown away. This kicks some serious ass!! :banger:

 

What else in this bands catalog I should go get?!

I'm not a huge C.F. fan but I think I can tell ya it's pretty much all good except for COLD LAKE. Start with MORBID TALES and go from there...

 

I have heard one track off the new CF album "MONOTHEIST" called "Ground" and it sounds quite good, just haven't gotten around to buying the CD yet....

I started with "Cold Lake" so the other stuff in their catalogue I've bought has been a pleasant surprise. IMO "Vanity/Nemesis" is their best work, but I don't have the newie yet...

I love COLD LAKE, it is the most sincere piece of music Tom Fischer wrote, ever. They rejected it later of course, which is very epithome of what CF really was - an poseur image.

 

The new album is horrible, I'd pass on it, unless you're a Rob Zombie fan.

I agree. I like Cold Lake. Shame they disowned it.

 

If anyone's interested, I have the Morbid Tales/Emperor's Return 17-track digipack (tough to find; includes Hellhammer's Apocalyptic Raids EP) on my sale list.

Ages ago, when I started listening to hard rock I bought both 'Cold lake' and 'Vanity/Nemesis'... it was so long agao I barely remember, because I sold both, but I definately didn't like either. I thought 'Cold lake' sounded really week and forced, and the vocals didn't match the mood... plus I didn't dig it musically either. I remember the 'Vanity/Nemesis' one being ballsier and a heavier listen, but it just wasn't my thing. Probably a cool band for what they are, but definately not my kinda thing. :)

I didn't detect much Rob Z. in the one Monotheist track I heard ("Ground") but I will confess that when I heard Tom's track on the PROBOT CD in 2004 I thought "Damn, he sounds like a Rob Zombie imitator." I was hoping to hear some of his classic old-school "death grunts" (cuz nobody could go "UNNNGGGGHH!" like Tom Gabriel Warrior Fischer) but that track was a big disappointment. It's the only song on the Probot disc that I don't like.

 

To give the uninitiated an idea of how out-of-left field the COLD LAKE album was, here are two C.F. videos from YouTube (yea, I know, we're all going nuts with the YouTube links lately, and there's a whole thread for these, but I am posting them here for demonstration's sake.)

 

This first one is for their thrash classic "Circle of The Tyrants" off of one of their early '80s albums (I'm not sure which one and I'm too lazy to go look it up right now)

 

Now here is the video for 1988's "Cherry Orchards" off of COLD LAKE. You can see how fans of the old C.F. stuff didn't exactly welcome this material with open arms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAdiTFst9-w

 

I leave it up to each individual viewer to decide which version of C.F. they like better. I guess the average Heavy Harmonies visitor would probably prefer the "Cherry Orchards" material and the Brutal Metal crowd would rather hear "Circle of the Tyrants," although truthfully I kinda like'em both... :crazy:

My brother, who's an old school Celtic Frost fan from back in the old days, picked up their new MONOTHEIST CD over the weekend, and his review to me was short and sweet: "IT SUCKS"

 

Make of that what you will

Yep, I picked up a copy in my local HMV store yesterday lunchtime and took it to the listening post & it sounds bloody awful. I know you should never judge an album from the first flick-through, but it sounded a mess....

I've only heard one song ("Ground") via an MP3 on Century Media's web site and it sounded OK, but then my bro was always the bigger C.F. fan in the family so I'd take his word for it. On the other hand, if he hates the CD so much, maybe he'll give me his copy and I can make up my own mind. :)

I always liked the video for the original song (by Wall Of Voodoo) where the guy's head pops out of the pot of beans on the stove... "I'm on-a Mexican radiooooo...."

 

Damn, I'm gonna have to YouTube that frickin' video now ain't I? Maybe that'll get the song outta my head

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
