Triptykon have been quiet lately but they are preparing something. Due to sustained demand, a special vinyl re-release of the Swiss extreme metal act's debut album, Eparistera Daimones, will be made available in April 2016. Furthermore, Triptykon have been confirmed for Wacken Open Air 2016 and Alcatraz Hard Rock & Metal Festival 2016 so far.
Swiss extreme metallers Triptykon have a new video for you to enjoy. They debuted a new visualization of a song off their acclaimed second album Melana Chasmata, the abrasive album opener "Tree Of Suffocating Souls". The video was once again directed by Philipp Hirsch (who previously worked with them for the group's "Shatter" and "Aurorae" video clips). Watch the final result right here.
Triptykon just released their ominous new video. The week of Triptykon's much anticipated return appearances at Bloodstock Festival, UK (August 8th), and Jalometalli Festival, Finland, (August 9th), the Swiss extreme metal act unleashed the first of two video clips filmed to accompany of the group's second album, Melana Chasmata. For now, you can feast your eyes on "Aurorae" below.
Recently, Triptykon's mastermind Tom Gabriel "Warrior" Fischer was vocal about his disapproval of Century Media's Melana Chasmata planned special box set and instead of creating a problem, the label actually listened to Warrior and changed the product to his liking. A new limited edition box set has now been announced for the band's new opus Melana Chasmata approved by Triptykon.
Triptykon has just revealed not one but two new songs from their new album Melana Chasmata. Now you have two new songs to digest in one day. The songs are "Breathing" and "Boleskine House" and you can stream both right here. Why complain? Enjoy the new tunes. Both songs are also available on Soundcloud here.
Triptykon's mastermind Tom Gabriel "Warrior" Fischer just released a statement about the band's new album Melana Chasmata special box set Century Media will be making available. Tom personally recommends fans not to buy it. He says it does not represent Triptykon even though the label can market the album as it pleases.
The mighty Triptykon are about to release a new album called Melana Chasmata this coming April through Century Media Records/Prowling Death Records Ltd. But before that, Century Media will release a collector's gatefold 7" vinyl single, featuring the album songs "Breathing" and "Boleskine House". The single will contain an approximate playing time of 13 minutes, its cover artwork can be seen below and you can also hear audio samples of both songs here.
We already knew that Triptykon's new album would be called Melana Chasmata (rough translation: "black, deep depressions/valleys") but today we learn more about it. First of all, that it will feature nine songs, at a playing time of around 67 minutes. The album will also feature the art of legendary Swiss surrealist HR Giger. The release is set for April 14th (Europe) and April 15th (North America), 2014, through Century Media Records/Prowling Death Records Ltd. Check out the cover below.
Extreme metallers Triptykon have some news for us today. The metal project formed by former Hellhammer/Celtic Frost singer, guitarist, and main songwriter Tom Gabriel Warrior after his exit from Celtic Frost in 2008 has announced that the group's second album will be titled Melana Chasmata. It will be released on April 14th (Europe) and April 15th (North America), 2014. Mark your calendars for the next dark and heavy album, as promised by the band. The album's title may be translated, approximately, as "black, deep depressions/valleys". You can expect the artwork and more details later.
Having released their debut album Eparistera Daimones in 2010 and one EP on the same year, Triptykon led by former Hellhammer/Celtic Frost member Tom Gabriel "Warrior" Fischer have been quiet lately. However, the band is currently working on a new album and Tom G. Warrior has updated on what's going on at Triptykon's camp.
Swiss extreme metallers Triptykon have announced on their official website that they have been invited to play a very special and exceptional show on June 23rd in Abtenau, Austria, near Salzburg. The concert will take place at a mountain lodge surrounded by the high Alps for a celebration of summer solstice. The number of tickets will be strictly limited to 300 in order to preserve the intimacy and exclusivity of this unique location. More information about the show can be found here.
Grave mainman/guitarist Ola Lindgren has posted the following update in regards to his black/death metal solo project, Grey Heavens:
"Very proud to announce that Norman Lonhard from the mighty Triptykon will be doing drums on the upcoming Grey Heavens recording later this year. I'm superstoked and I'm sure it will be amazing! Stay tuned..."
Canadian extreme metallers Kataklysm will headline the Hatefest 2011 European tour in December.
Support on the trek will come from Triptykon, Marduk, Milking The Goatmachine and two more "special guests" who have not yet been announced. Dates for the tour, starting in December, can be found after the jump.
"Shatter", the new video from Triptykon, can be viewed at this location. Based on a concept devised by Warrior and directed and filmed by Philipp Hirsch of Film-M in Leipzig, Germany in late September 2010, the clip combines the imagery of occult metal with the somber aesthetics of 1920s-era silent movies.
"Shatter" is the title track of the band's forthcoming EP, Shatter, which is scheduled for release on October 25 (Europe) and October 26 (North America).
