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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melana Chasmata - for the truly morbid 17 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am 46 years old and have been a fan of the mighty Frost since the time of the ‘Tragic Serenades’ EP. I am also one of those rare hybrids who were a fan of punk/ deathrock and gothic music as well as the emerging 80’s black metal scene. Basically any band with a horror/ vampire, occult theme I was into. Many of the early 80’s bands such as Bauhaus, the Banshees, Christian Death, 45 Grave, Misfits, Killing Joke and Alien Sex Fiend had a hard punky edge to their live sound and shows and were certainly not the dreary shoegazers hiding behind dry ice and 70s rock pretensions that many later 80’s Goth incarnations (especially those who followed in the steps of the Sisters of Mercy) became renowned for.

I only got to see the Frost once when they came to Scotland in 1989 on the infamous ‘Cold Lake’ tour. Everybody pans that album but the one song I liked off it was ‘Little Velvet’ which had a good riff. The gig at Edinburgh Playhouse was forgettable due to the poor new material, useless fanny of a guitarist Oliver Amberg and was even less fun due to the bouncers insisting you remain seated. It was a real disappointment for real fans like myself who especially loved the ‘Into the Pandemonium’ material and older stuff but didn’t get to see the band on the previous tour. However, the day before the gig, my girlfriend and I met the band in Glasgow at a record signing and spoke with Tom and Michelle. Although Michelle was very nice, it seemed like what happened to Celtic Frost was just like the scene out of Spinal Tap where the singer’s girlfriend got involved in the band. All Tom’s morbid HR Giger style was thrown out the window when his (ugly) new band were all dollied up by ‘stylist’ Michelle to be glamsters.

This the last album that Black Sabbath should have made. Epic doom, great riffs, gruff and ethereal vocals. The works. Brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Triptykon - Melana Chasmata 14 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has been four years since Eparistera Daimones (which is actually their début album) and in that time the band have grown a lot. I'm not exactly sure if I can make any comparison to the album I mentioned above as this is my first experience of Triptykon, so therefore I'm going to try and be detailed about this as much as I can. As we all know, Triptykon arose in 2008 after Tom G Warrior left his then current band, the famous Celtic Frost, and announced his new project. Melana Chasmata is their second full-length album, and it is one beast.

I was introduced to this band a little while ago. I had known of Celtic Frost due to their huge influence on many of the Swedish bands I listen to, namely cited as an influence by Opeth in their early days. This album is definitely as close to Celtic Frost just with a different name on the front, and the songs here truly represent a 'masterpiece' - I'm not using that word in a light context, either.

The first track "Tree of Suffocating Souls" is a perfect opener: no long intro, just getting down straight down to business. It's faster than what you'd expect from anything from a former member of Celtic Frost to write, but half the album features some quintessential doom riffs that will be stuck in your head.

The female vocalist makes an interesting appearance (don't have the liner notes in front of me...yet) here and there throughout this album, providing a good contrast against Tom's gruff vocals. Tradintionally, many bands have that 'second album syndrome' and then some bands do not. Considering that this band is not exactly new and has established themselves well with their début and releases between, I feel that Melana Chasmata is going to be one of the best albums of 2014.

This is a truly amazing album! No one genre could define it, but it is HEAVY. An astounding culmination of Tom G. Warrior's sound that has grown over the last 30 years. Every listen unfolds a new nuance to the texture of these big doomy, dark soundscapes. My only slight complaint is the drum sound, which at times is too digitally modern for my tastes, but this does not distract from the majesty of this awe inspiring work. Everyone should check this out, & for anyone into extreme music it is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eparistera Daimones Part II. 15 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
Received this yesterday and just played it all the way through. You can tell in Tom Fischer's head it's a dark and despondent place, which I can relate to easily.
I love bands that write about subjects that are drenched with misery, pain and death. Triptykon bring these emotions alive so well.

Another masterpiece from the Triptykon bunker. Could easily be album of the year.
