YMMV / Celtic Frost

  • Awesome Music: To Mega Therion in its entirety, particularly "Circle of the Tyrants".
  • Dork Age: Even the most die-hard Celtic Frost fans refuse to defend Cold Lake.
  • Face of the Band: Tom Fishcer. When he left the band, the remaining member knew that without him, there would be no purpose in continuing to call themselves "Celtic Frost."
  • Memetic Mutation: UGH!!!, Tom G. Warrior's signature scream. May reach Narm Charm.
  • Narm: Cold Lake, in all it's hated glory is this for fans, due to the band trying very hard to become glam metal, with hilarious results.
    • The demo Prototype is all of this, especially the infamous "Hip Hop Jugend", which one commentator said it sounded like a "rejected Rammstein song".
  • Narm Charm: Their early material can be this by today's standards. Between Tom's Large Ham vocals and the band's over the top Sword & Sorcery aesthetic, the whole thing can come off as being a little ridiculous. That doesn't change the fact that it fucking rules.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The music video for "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh."
    • Actually, Monotheist in general is this trope.
      • Considering that Monotheist surpasses the Darker and Edgier aspect, especially with "Triptych" piece. Brr...
    • "Tears in a Prophet's Dream", a Mind Screw instrumental track on To Mega Therion.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Compare the main riff of "Cherry Orchards" to the opening riff of "Seek and Destroy".
  • Tearjerker: "Drown in Ashes", "Obscured" and the final part of the triptych "Winter".
    • Bassist and co-founder of Celtic Frost, Martin Eric Ain's death also counts.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Cold Lake, big time.
  • Win Back the Crowd: Monotheist got this for many fans, especially for those who feel it was a perfect close for Celtic Frost.
  • The Woobie: Tom G. Warrior, ever so much.
