Triptykon - New Album Gets Title And Release Date

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.

The album's release will take place through a collaboration between the group's own label, Prowling Death Records Ltd., and Century Media Records. This is the same label partnership already responsible for Celtic Frost's final album, Monotheist (2006), Hellhammer's Demon Entrails demo compendium (2008), and Triptykon's debut album, Eparistera Daimones, and Shatter EP (2010).

The songwriting, arrangement, and recording sessions for the album occurred, intermittently, since 2011. Among the music available for the album are songs such as "Boleskine House", "Stasis", "Gate To My Own Death", "Demon Pact", "Gehinnam", "Tree Of Suffocated Souls", "Unchristian Anthem", and many more.

Melana Chasmata is also being produced by Tom Gabriel Warrior and Triptykon guitarist V. Santura, and recorded and engineered by V. Santura at his own Woodshed Studio in Bavaria, Germany, as well as at Triptykon's bunker in Zurich, Switzerland.

Tom Gabriel Warrior states: "We have been working on Melana Chasmata for some three years, in various shapes and forms. It's not an easy album by any means, and to me personally it reflects an extremely complex gestation period, musically, spiritually, and, due to certain circumstances in my life, emotionally. At the same time, the album unquestionably reflects the continuity I was longing for so much during Celtic Frost's period of self-destruction and demise. Hearing Triptykon creating such utter darkness again and exploring the potential of these new songs has been incredibly invigorating and inspiring."

Sweet, right around their Roadburn performance. I'm sure they'll be playing some new stuff from it in their set.

seeing the release date they will certainly be selling it at Roadburn. Even if the release date gets pushed back a week or two.

Awesome, I'm looking forward to this one!

I checked them out back in 2009 or '10 (whenever they first released promo material), and did not care for it. Since then my musical/metal tastes have changed quite a bit, so I decided to revisit their material (some from the LP, some from the EP), and it was pretty damn good.

Glad my tastes have changed for the better, and I need to get their old material so I can prepare for this new material. Luckily I've got plenty of time.
