Frost was a really cool band. Actually the only CF album I really dont care for all that much is Vanity Nemesis. As shockingly different as Cold Lake is, there's a couple songs there that I think have some great riffs. But the presentation was pretty much an attempt to pander to a commercial audience.
Monotheist to me is an awe inspiring release. But Tryptikon has fallen somewhat flat with me. Im not sure what it is that I didn't get into, perhaps it was just the absence of Martin Ain. But the older music is still killer, and I'll check out whatever future releases come from Tom G, with an open mind.
