Listening to Breathing now and it rules.

My $0.02 about reuniting Celtic Frost - Tom seems to have mellowed out about it since their '08 break up. It's been six years already, which is hard for me to believe (I remember like it was yesterday reading on Blabbermouth that he left the band). Also, it took seven to eight years for Tom/Eric to reunite after their breakup in the '90s, so given that he's not ruling it out completely and the time that's past, I could see it possibly happening in a few years.

However, I can't imagine Tom would want to put Triptykon on hold or shaft whoever he can't include in a Celtic Frost reunion (Vanja most likely). It looks like Triptykon is going too well for him and he seems to care about the other members too much to do that.

Now I'm on Boleskin House and it rules too.

I'm excited for this album + hopefully getting the chance to see these guys for the first time. Is the bassist the one who sings the parts in Boleskine House and Shatter?

And I don't know about you guys, but I don't see much of a point in a CF reunion other than if Tom and Martin feel the need for closure. I would probably try to see them, but it's not like Martin and whoever else is involved bring more to the music than Triptykon does.
12/17 Metallica?

I would say depending on how well the new Triptykon does and how much they tour I think they "could" even though I have my doubts it'd be anytime soon. They went 4 years between albums, I know the first year or so they toured a good amount but it didn't seem like they toured a ton the last couple years.

If they follow a similar pattern I think they could. Although it just really depends if Tom really wants to burn himself out because he could go do stuff w/ CF after Triptykon and then after CF is over it'd be time for more Triptykon again. I'd say it depends on the workload Tom feels like taking.

Would there be a point to continuing Triptykon if Celtic Frost got back together? Tom has said that Triptykon is exactly what Celtic Frost would've sounded like had they stayed together.

Both songs are awesome but Boleskine House is more the vein I prefer. I'm loving the female vocals.

I honestly don't care if Celtic Frost ever reunite if Triptykon sticks around. This shit rips.

As for these two tracks, here are my impressions. The engineering is marginally better than ED, the bass really pops out now and the drums sound more natural. I think Tom also sounds stronger on these songs than on ED, less straining and a little more like he did back in the '80s. Breathing destroys (3:09 could have been a classic part of a song on To Mega Therion), while Boleskine House is good, though I probably wouldn't listen to it much on its own. Could make for a really strong part of the album as a whole though.

Boleskine House is a pretty awesome song, but I don't like Breathing. It just sounds like your average generic thrash with kind of crappy vocals. If the album is mostly in the vein of Boleskine House, it will kick ass.
I love inside jokes, I'd love to be a part of one some day.

Their slower doom songs really are better than their sped up thrash stuff. Same can be said about the Monotheist album and the last Triptykon.

But I have no problems with an equal mix of both. If anything a weaker thrash song will make a slower doom song that follows it sound even more crushing. I can't wait for this album.
