The True Frost - _Open the Portals to Darkness_
(Millenium Metal Music, 2002)
by: Matthias Noll (3 out of 10)
Dear Mum,

I'm doing fine, but please send more money -- I went to the metal market in Frankfurt and spent everything I had on CDs. I know I shouldn't do this, but I got in a shopping frenzy. Unfortunately, I bought a CD by a band called The True Frost. I know you told me many times, a name like The True Frost is almost as good as a sticker on the case saying "avoid like the black plague" -- because how could anyone with even the smallest amount of trueness ever call his band "the true "? But somehow I couldn't control myself.

Quite often they sound like a talentless former punk or oi band who got a Hellhammer and a Darkthrone record and thought it would be much cooler to play underground black metal. And when I'm completely honest I believe I have found more atmosphere and grimness in the trunk of my car than behind the portals to darkness.

I promise I'll be more careful in the future. Maybe I can sell it to an idiot like myself on eBay, but please Mum, send the money soon so that I can buy something decent like the new Satanic Warmaster.

Necro-Hailz from your son, Matthias.
