Eparistera Daimones = 2 LP = (LP)
Celtics Frost's comeback album, "Monotheist", was unexpected as a release, but also as an CF album. Though certainly CF had never made two albums that sounded the same, much less in a row, and most fans were quite satisfied with the outcome. So was I. Celtic Frost's disbandment was as heartbreaking as "Monotheist" had been spirit-raising (in a crushing manner). Tom G. Warrior knew what he held in his hands and saw that it was far too good to be allowed to go in waste, even if he had to start from scrap. Actually, the acclaim and success that "Monotheist" met ensured he didn't have to start from scrap. Triptykon may have been a new band, but so strongly a continuation of "Monotheist" that none who had liked the album would miss "Eparistera Daimones". In fact, I think this album was hyped even more than its predecessor. It is actually good that "Eparistera Daimones" is not a CF album, for they were known for never doing the same album twice (as I have now said twice). Triptykon kind of ensured that Tom could do "Monotheist" a hundred times if he so felt. "Eparistera Daimones" may indeed be a continuation of "Monotheist", but is more of natural evolution than a carbon copy.

Also, this album focuses less on riffs than its predecessor. The guitars are there to do but one thing - crush. I was actually surprised to see the wide acclaim this album received because the riffs are nothing magnificent on their own, but only as a part of the bigger picture. As is everything, actually, apart from Tom's vocal delivery which is as powerful as ever (yes, the UH! is there, no need to worry). If this album isn't a riff-tastic masterpiece (though it is a masterpiece), then it isn't an atmospheric one either (!). "Eparistera Daimones" is an album of pure, raw emotion. Sure, the guitars crush and the drums pound, every now and then actually playing something interesting. Bass isn't very audible, but at times you realize it's there just like the guitars. The production more modern than on any CF album, which does t
