Triptykon, the latest project from ex Hellhammer/Celtic Frost leader, Thomas Gabriel Warrior, are set to release their second album in the United States on April 15, 2014. The album, entitled, Melana Chasmata, the followup to their 2010 debut EP will be released as a collaborative effort on both the band’s label, Prowling Death Records Ltd, and the ubiquitous, Century Media Records.
On the making of the album, frontman, Tom G. Warrior has this to say: 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.”
