TRIPTYKON: Two New Songs Available For Streaming

Friday, 14th March 2014

TRIPTYKON — the occult/avant-garde metal project formed by former HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST singer, guitarist, and main songwriter Tom Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom Gabriel Warrior) is presently streaming two new songs: “Breathing” and “Boleskine House” via the Youtube clips below.

The band’s second album, Melana Chasmata, will be released on April 15 (one day earlier internationally). The album will be made available through a collaboration between the group’s own label, Prowling Death Records Ltd., and renowned metal giant 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).

Like its predecessor Eparistera Daimones, the album was produced by TRIPTYKON’s singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior and guitarist V. Santura and recorded and mixed at V. Santura’s own Woodshed Studio in southern Germany as well as at TRIPTYKON’s rehearsal facilities in Zurich, Switzerland, in 2013 and 2014. Those who have already heard Melana Chasmata have described it as “atmospheric, dark, diabolical, and dramatic”, “diverse, epic, and doomy, but on an entirely different level”, “a fierce boulder of abhorrence”, or “very heavy and yet very aesthetic at the same time”.

Melana Chasmata will feature the following nine songs, at a playing time of around 67 minutes:

1. Tree Of Suffocating Souls
2. Boleskine House
3. Altar Of Deceit
4. Breathing
5. Aurorae
6. Demon Pact
7. In The Sleep Of Death
8. Black Snow
9. Waiting

Further new TRIPTYKON music has been recorded, to be released as an EP or mini album later in 2014 or early in 2015.
