1.5 very poorBrendan M. | July 6th 14

Who would've thought that Celtic Frost would've gone this way? Into the Pandemonium was a gothic piece of work which may have had some Cure-esque writing on it, but when the hell did Glam enter the equation? Cold Lake basically sounds like a mix of glam metal and black metal, with absolutely laughable results. Tom G. Warrior absolutely hates this album, stating it was a lack of caring on his part, and he called it the worst metal album ever made. It's not the worst ever made, but it's still pretty fucking bad. The mix of black and glam doesn't sound very good at all, instead sounding cheesy and awkward. If you could imagine maybe some darker melodies for a glam band, typical glam metal song titles and lyrics, and Tom's vocals above it, this is what you would get. Basically, it's just awkward and painful to listen to, and a stain on Celtic Frost's legacy.

I have no idea what ran through the minds of the members of Celtic Frost when they created this steaming pile, an essential 180 in regards to anything they had ever done in the past. There's a reason essentially everyone hates this album: Pure, unadulterated hatred is the only reaction Cold Lake deserves. Celtic Frost tried their hand at 80s style glam metal. I've yet to see a single artist pull of such a formula successfully.

A sad attempt to achieve mainstream popularity. But think about it, how could a band named CELTIC FROST ever become popular anyway? Unless they changed their name to Celtic Snake or Celtic Lion, or Frost Snake, they'd never be popular.
