Into the Pandemonium is the 1987 album by avant-garde metal band Celtic Frost. The album is more varied than many of Celtic Frost's past LPs, with unlikely covers (Wall of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio"), emotionally charged love songs and the band's signature industrial-influenced rhythmic songs of demons and destruction.

    Well said ! The WALL OF VOODOO cover "Mexican Radio" is just great, too.

    This is an interesting album. It's got some typical Celtic Frost songs like "Inner Sanctum", but then there are quite a lot of weird 80's electronic stuff as well as the (lovely) French female-sung song. I can honestly not say that I truly understand the purpose of this album or what they were trying to achieve with it, but I still have a love for it just because it's so different from most other metal albums. It's not their best album, yet still probably the one I listen to the most. Listening to this album is a bit like a first-time-listening experience every time, 'cause there's always something new that you missed during the previous listening session.

    This album reminds me of Swans' Soundtracks for the Blind, except that one is much much better.

    Those vocals are terrible and annoyingly produced. There's some really annoying music on here too, especially those "mix" songs.

    You can hear hints of the foreshadowing glam sound that was fully embraced in the next album.

    This is a really good album if you skip a couple of tracks.
