||Decibel Magazine and Stereogum/Haunting The Chapel have teamed up to present the Weltenbrand Tour 2010, featuring the North American debut of Triptykon. 1349 and Yakuza will round out the bill on what is sure to be this fall's heaviest tour.
Vocalist/guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior describes his emotions of anticipation on this new undertaking as follows: "Ever since my earliest days in Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, I have been extremely fortunate to be able to count on the support, fanaticism, and immense loyalty of the North American metal scene. The recognition my work has received there eclipses anything I have ever encountered in my own native country. Of the 125 concerts performed on the final Celtic Frost tour in 2006 and 2007, for example, a full 71 were played in North America. Some of these performances rank among the most memorable ones in my entire career.
It is thus an immense honor for me to now bring my new group Triptykon to North America for the first time. Triptykon is further pursuing the path I once began with Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, and I am looking forward to continuing to forge this darkest of musical alliances with all of you. We shall all celebrate masses of unleashed heaviness and morbidity. Only death is real!"
The band's debut Eparistera Daimones was released back in March.
