We all know the story by now. Following the disbanding of Celtic Frost after the widely-hailed Monotheist, metal torchbearer Thomas Fischer announced the formation of Triptykon, a new project that would be dedicated towards continuing on in the vein of the final Celtic Frost album. The band's Eparistera Daimones debut showed a glimpse of Fischer's remaining committment to writing ominous, crushing music. Now, in 2014, Melana Chasmata cements it.

I actually like both albums better than Celtic Frost. I'm going to hide now from the slew of things about to be thrown at me.

I suppose you are talking about Monotheist?

I am checking out Monotheist today. I was actually referring to their most commended albums: Morbid Tales and To Mega Therion. I just prefer the Triptykon records to those despite being classics.

Great album but cant surpass Monotheist
Nothing can surpass Monotheist. At least this is better than the debut.


I actually think the debut is stronger. I really dig this one but I just feel the debut is stronger. Dont know why though since the style is the same.

You'll see that Monotheist and those other two Celtic Frost albums have not much in common. And if you're a normally built human being, you'll find yourself liking Monotheist more than the two Triptykon ones. If not, then the I'll be the one throwing things at you .

Yes it's a serious threat.

Almost done listening now. This is very good stuff indeed. Perfect segway into Triptykon. My one gripe with all of these albums is that they are a bit overlong. I am not opposed to long albums or songs, but they drag out the same riffs a bit too often. That aside, this stuff is way better than just good.

If you've listened to the four Triptykon+Celtic Frost yesterday, and Monotheist today, I'd say that's perfectly normal. They are long albums, each of them.

No, I had previously listened to all of the Triptykon albums seperately. Monotheist is the only one I just listened to now. I just think they could trim a bit here and there to make it tighter, that's all. Bands like Opeth, Tool, Godflesh, etc. tend to keep my attention better on lengthier songs due to the various dynamics they include.
