"Terminal Frost" is an instrumental from Pink Floyd's 1987 album, A Momentary Lapse of Reason.[1][2]

Recording[edit]

As with both parts of "A New Machine", a live version was never officially released by the band. Because of Nick Mason's lack of drumming while Pink Floyd had been on hiatus, the track uses a drum machine.

The saxophones are played by Tom Scott and John Helliwell, the latter best known for being the saxophonist for the band Supertramp.
