Biography

As CELTIC FROST had once arose from HELLHAMMER’s ashes, so arose TRIPTYKON from CELTIC FROST’s ashes. Created to further evolve the darkness invoked by its black/-extreme metal pioneers, TRIPTYKON are the brainchild of Tom Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom Gabriel Warrior), the groups’ singer, guitarist, and main songwriter.

Melana Chasmata is a vastly varied and strikingly ... Read more in Amazon's Triptykon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Solo la morte è reale 25 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
A staggeringly good CD. Eparistera Diamones is the aural sucessor in many ways to Monotheist. The tortured guitar sound is still there. Glacially slow and grindingly heavy music is still there. Morbidity is still there. The dark compositions reflecting on the usual spiritual themes, meaning, life and death, organised religion etc are still there. However. the CD, if it can be, is more accomplished and mature than monotheist. Immediately the compositions feel a little less challenging and more rewearding, there is more structure, finer textures, and hints of the weirdness and avant-garde direction from earlier days. Eparistera Diamones is a lesson, in many places, that less can be more. Contemporary death metal bands take note- slow down, have less going on, and express yourself more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Triptykon - Eparistera Daimones 7 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those of you into Black Metal & especially Celtic Frost this album marks what I consider to be the follow on to Celtic Frosts last album together in 2006 titled - Monotheist. It does so so neatly that you could be forgiven in thinking that this was the extra material they didn't use OR that they wrote so much for that album that they had to produce this one to complete the 'Works'. Triptykon is a new band that has been formed by Tom Gabriel Warrior formally the singer for Celtic Frost & now this. Like Monotheist there are slow melodic sections accompanied by violin or piano & then very intense, almost thrash bits that remind you that this is Metal music! Its ALL very Dark & Moody - if one was contemplating a Final Solution to one's Life then playing these 2 albums back to back would set the tone for such a radical decision - Musically (not recommended though as these albums need to be played MANY times to completely understand their depth & quality!So don't do it! ha ha). This album manages to paint a strong, bleak & desperate landscape - a MUST have for Metal Fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gosh 24 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
In this age where so many bands are extreme and super heavy and brutal etc,it's rare to find a band that really does create a palpable sense of unease and darkness.Triptykon do this not by speed or the latest crunching guitar production techniques but by sickly moribund bleak guitar tones and and pitch black atmospherics.A worthy successor to Celtic Frost's monolithic Monotheist.
CF's 1988 attempt at hair metal,Cold Lake,seems a lifetime ago now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Angry and above all Believable 3 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
I like Metal. Years have gone by and good Metal still grabs my attention and holds me more than any other music. Sad then, that these days I find it so difficult to find bands that really interest me. Triptykon are the band I have been waiting for for a long time.

Dark, heavy, well constructed music. Every sound calculated to add to the mountain of black atmosphere that these guys churn out.
Tom Warriors lyrics are simple but absolutely effective and his vocal performance is stellar. I have never heard anyone exude anguish and evil as convincingly as this man can, and all through his performance he maintains a humanity which only serves to make the whole thing more disturbing.
There are sections which are incredibly hypnotic whilst still being vey dark and heavy. Mantra like vocals and lead guitars that weave around each other in a scarily psychedelic fashion. Ambient sections that match current electronic artists in production values. Eerie, feedback laden soloing, this album is the embodiment of what I want from dark music.

This album has made alot of other bands irrelevant. It transcends (sub)genre and belittles it in the process. It sets the bar for everyone else. Triptykon have created something truly special, and if you like dark music they deserve your attention. I just hope they can continue to put out stuff of this quality inthe future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monotheist II 17 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Label the LP as Celtic Frost, and you will have articles like:

"After Monotheist, this is a natural progress in the direction that Warrior and Ein has taken. The sick, heavy, sub mid tempo, satanic lyrics, dark sound continues with everything that u would accept from the Frost crew like long song structures, Geiger art work, etc"

All this is true accept this is not Frost. Secondly the line up does not include Ein. Does it matter? Well it depends. There is a reason why this is not Frost. The chemistry between two musicians have always pushed each other towards creating the ultimate album in the history of Frost. This is why they have always hit us with the unexpected. Albums that were ahead of their time was the product of this dialectical existence. Triptykon does not have this "tension". I think this is why it sounds EXACTLY like Monotheist.

However, this is also a respected station; starting with Hellhammer continuing with Celtic Frost (except Cold Lake of course) and now Triptykon. Well done Tom! The epic lyrics and sound is a proof that metal is well alive in the underground. A must buy for the ones who still buys CDs and LPs... A good start to listen to metal for the ones who think Metallica is metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far superior to ' monotheist ' 25 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic debut album from warrior's new band and perfect for fans of celtic frost. In fact this sounds closer to classic CF than monotheist did !! Extremely heavy and dark with the best vocals warrior has putted in any album . There are moments that remind almost every phase of warrior's career from hellhammerish moments to vanity/nemesis stuff , all sounding coherent and resulting in a metal masterpiece . A must and possibly metal album of the year.
