A Great New Direction

"Tom Fischer has hit a home run with this CD. It's the best thing he's been associated with since Into the Pandemonium. It's too bad that he doesn't realize that. According to the Celtic Frost Web site, they're currently recording a new CD. I just hope that doesn't mean an end to Apollyon Sun.
The music is heavy, yet modern. It's loud, agressive music with a brain. Many of the songs have the experimental quality of Celtic Frost's most risk-taking work. It's as if AS took songs like One in Their Pride as a stepping off point to create this recording.
If the producers of the new Matrix films had any sense, they would get AS to record songs for the films or use tracks from SUB. It would be a perfect fit."
Fans of Celtic Frost will be surprised big time.

"When Tom Fischer(aka Tom Warrior) first disbanded Hellhammer, he took what was best of it and incorporated it in Celtic Frost. Then Celtic Frost was put aside (they are working on a new album), and came Apollyon Sun.So what's Apollyon Sun like? It's..umm..'different'. VERY different. If you were expecting another Celtic Frost incarnation like I was, you'll be blown away. This sounds more like something Marilyn Manson or Ministry would create. In a sense, this album is bleaker and darker than the aforementioned bands. It's danceable industrial, but the music is creepy. I was surprised. Did I like 'Sub'? Yes, it is a solid effort. The interesting thing is the way Tom sings. He sounds like Marilyn Manson, especially on 'Naked Underground'. I think he could improve on his vocals and probably start singing an octave higher, though. And not all songs are good. But overall, a good album."
Love it

"This dark and perimetric journey is a worthy successor of Fischer's musical legacy. Involuntarily attempting to
categorize Sub hurt the first listening experience for me -- was too tied up in comparisons with his past efforts and how the foray into heavy electronica resembles that genre's formidable icons. But upon a second listen, I've come to appreciate Sub on its own terms. It's interesting, forceful, sometimes quirky and on occasion hauntingly beautiful -- but still delivers the heavy grooves and solid thrashing you'd expect from Tom G. Drop the preconceptions and let him take you into his newly computerized Babylon -- you'll be glad you did."
