Triptykon – new album, single and tour with At The Gates

Triptykon - Melana ChasmataCreated in May 2008 to further develop the darkness invoked by its immediate precursors, seminal black/extreme metal pioneers Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, Triptykon evolved from a Celtic Frost side project initiated by Tom Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom Gabriel Warrior), the group’s singer, guitarist, and main songwriter.

Work on the successor to Eparistera Daimones began after the conclusion of touring, in late 2012. Titled Melana Chasmata (“deep, dark valleys/depressions”), the album was yet again recorded a Triptykon’s rehearsal facilities in Zurich, Switzerland, and Santura’s Woodshed Studio, and produced by Warrior and Santura. Its release in April of 2014 is to be preceded by “Breathing”, Triptykon’s first 7″ vinyl single. You can listen to “Breathing” below.

In addition, the band have announced a handful of UK dates in support of the recently reformed At The Gates. A great double bill! Morbus Chron will be opening proceedings.
