They tried to get back the esteem of the metal scene with this album, after their attempt at glam on "Cold Lake", but it was too little too late.
They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

This album is so underrated. I don't understand why most people don't like it. Is it because it was released after the infamous Cold Lake? It isn't as good as To Mega Therion but the songs are really good and only thing that could be better are the vocals. To be honest, I like this much more than Into The Pandemonium.

Whatever happened to Celtic Frost, is it true that they got lost?

Not underrated at all. Just absolutely horrible. No trace of great riffs, the Celtic Frost magic or Warrior's bad assness. The way he still tries to sound sexy, as in Cold Lake, is one of the most embarrassing moments in metal.

I "like" it. My rating is a 6 right now but it could become a 7. CF is my all time fave band, but I prefer their earlier work.
