5.0 out of 5 stars To My Left, Demon, 13 April 2010
This review is from: Eparistera Daimones (Audio CD)
A truly stunning metal album.

It's a strange on to 'badge' this one, and let's face it, all you metalheads, driven primarily by the metal media, need to pigeonhole every single band into a particular genre!!

Kinda difficult when it comes to Tom and Celtic Frost (and let's face it, this IS the follow up to Monotheist), when in fact Tom and his incarnations through Hellhammer and Celtic Frost actually defined the genre.

So that's the best badge really. This musically is the next Celtic Frost album, and it is heavy. By golly it is rectum rippling leak into your pants heavy, but it's actually more accessible than Monotheist.

It's almost like it's a heady mix of all Celtic Frost albums (including the critically panned Vanity/Nemesis) right through to Monotheist.

Twisting, jarring, off time riffing. Tom's unique voice. And the pure hatred in the lyrics!! It's no secret who Tom blames for the split of Celtic Frost following Monotheist, and although packaged up in a metal album and its associated imagery, some of the most vitriolic lyrics in Eparistera.... are very clearly aimed at Franco Sesa.

It's a common belief that some great art comes from the depths of adversity, and this album only confirms this belief.

This album WILL be in the top 5 Metal Hammer albums of the year.

If you're reading this you probably are a Celtic Frost fan, so you're going to get the album. Don't mess about.

Just get it!!

WOW, Mr Warrior is back and he is angry!

Whilst this album is very much the successor to "Monotheist" there is one big difference which impacts upon the sound of this album, that being the anger of Tom Warrior at the demise of Celtic Frost.
Whereas on "Monotheist" there were slow, almost doom like riffs and eerie electronics here there are, dare I say it almost thrash like riffs which mirror perfectly the lyrics, which are predominately focused on his anger at the demise on Celtic Frost and those responsible, best evidenced on "A Thousand Lies" and the epic "The Prolonging". The album does still include some of the electronics and eerie sounds from "Monotheist" as well as the beautiful female vocals which are particularly prominent on "My Pain"

I won't say too much more about the album, for fans of "Monotheist" simply but buy this album you won't be disappointed.

One final recommendation, I suggest buying the CD as opposed to downloading it as the booklet provided is of real quality and contains full lyrics as well as a note from Tom Warrior about the inspiration and creation of each song, it also contains some amazing artwork courtesy of H.R Giger.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the greatest metal album of all time, 25 Mar 2010

Almost 30 years ago frontman Thomas G. Fischer created a doom-laden monolith immersed in gothic rock and C20th classical music. A metalhead since 1986, I was fortunate enough to see the dawn of extreme music, and have heard many legendary albums on their release. Celtic Frost surpassed everyone with 'Monotheist'. However, Fischer has now surpassed even himself with Triptykon. Lovers of Celtic Frost, Sepultura, Neurosis or Satyricon, will easily become obsessed with the sprawling darkness of this album. This is the greatest metal album of all time bar none.
