Into the Pandemonium. Having created what would remain an archetypal metal record in To Mega Therion, it seemed like Thomas Gabriel Warrior and his compatriots were after an exact repeat on first blush with Pandemonium. Armed with harrowing Bosch cover art and song titles like "Babylon Fell" and "Sorrows of the Moon," what else could be the result? With the first track, though, all bets were off, showing Warrior to be one of the least predictable folks around.

When Celtic Frost finally emerged from the studio with "Into The Pandemonium" in hand, they had finally created the album they had always threatened to make (to the four or five people who were interested). I, for one, am exceedingly pleased with the results. Choosing to open the album with a fiery, punkish cover of Wall Of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio" was not a bad decision. It sounds nothing like the original, but that's far from a con in this case
Into the Pandemonium" stands as a synonym for a battle that the band could not win. Right from the beginning, Tom G. Warrior and his sidekicks were doomed to failure, because the concept of the album brought the band to its knees. I believe quite a few Celtic Frost fans must have tried to force themselves into liking this album.
Into the Pandemonium – третий альбом швейцарской метал – группы Celtic Frost, выпущенный в октябре 1987 года. От предыдущих релизов группы этот альбом отличался большим разнообразием. Into the Pandemonium стал отходом от курса экстрим-метала, чётко намеченного группой в восьмидесятых. Однако некоторые симфонические элементы из ранних альбомов в этом релизе также встречается. Звучание альбома тяготеет в сторону классического хэви-метала с элементами индастриала, классической и готической музыки, и даже хип-хоп/танцевальных ритмов в "One in Their Pride". В вокале влияние блэк-метала.

Of the first three Celtic Frost albums, the production of Into the Pandemonium is the most flawed. And that's the direct result of the record company not believing in the album and not wanting to invest in the band's career. DID The label's lack of support cause the band to implode or were there other factors? There were other factors, but that was the prime cause. After experiencing these conflicts with Into the Pandemonium, we knew we couldn't go on like this. We were an increasingly artistic and ambitious band. We had found success and we didn't want to waste it.
Into the Pandemonium is the third studio album by Swiss extreme metal band Celtic Frost, released in 1987.
