Triptykon Issues Band Update

Triptykon frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer has issued the following update:

"I just returned home to Zurich from essential visits, together with Triptykon guitarist V. Santura, to the offices of Century Media Records and Twisted Talent Concerts in Dortmund, Germany. Much time was spent critically assessing the activities of the past few months and discussing the Triptykon's future plans and projects. I took the train home, as I've done before, because it gives me plenty of time to think, read, and listen to music.

"In spite of intending to also listen to much newer releases on my MP3 player, I eventually never deviated during the entire, long ride from listening to DEEP PURPLE Mk. II, III, and IV, and to EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER. This is music I already listened to as a young teenager, long before I even remotely thought I would ever have the chance to become a musician myself. It has never lost it's intensity and magic for me. Quite on the contrary, in fact. It served to flood my mind with so many thoughts and images.

"Everything else in the world - Triptykon, music, touring, and what have you - becomes entirely insignificant, however, when you are told that Jörg Michael, friend for many years, business partner in Twisted Talent Concerts, and drummer in STRATOVARIUS, is in the process of fighting cancer."

Triptykon Mainman Checks In From Current Tour

Thomas G. Fischer (aka Tom Warrior,) the frontman of European extreme metal outfit Triptykon and former leader of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, has checked in with an update from the band's first North American tour, which is being undertaken with 1349 and Yakuza. His message reads as follows:

"The concert in San Francisco last night was one of the most intense and most memorable we have ever experienced with Triptykon. It ranks very highly among the truly outstanding nights we have been granted on this current tour of North America, such as those in New York, Chicago, Boston, at church in Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Montreal. Once again, we are deeply indebted to an audience who returned to us at least as much as we gave them in the first place.

"The night in San Francisco was only slightly marred by the fact that, after our performance, I was unable to find the truly extraordinary new friends I had made before the concert. I had hoped for a continuation of a deeply inspiring and moving conversation.

"A little more than three years ago, when I stood onstage at the very same venue in San Francisco, as part of a rapidly deteriorating group called Celtic Frost who that very day were almost dismissed from the Type O Negative tour due to the behaviour of one of our band's members, I would have never imagined all of this taking place. To be given the chance to return to San Francisco and be welcomed in such a warm and enthusiatic manner means more to me than I could ever express."

Triptykon Frontman Posts Tour Update

Triptykon frontman and former leader of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, Tom G. Warrior has checked in with another update from Triptykon's first tour of North America. His message reads as follows:


"On tour again in North America. In April of 2008, when I departed Celtic Frost and began to lay the foundation for Triptykon, this was but a mere intention, the fulfillment of which was anything but certain. The utter dedication of the audiences we are playing to here, their loyalty, and their feedback thus means even more to me that it ordinarily would.

"On October 10, in Montreal, I was finally able to witness an entire concert by our esteemed special guests on this tour, Yakuza. I had previously only seen a couple of songs or so each night. In my eyes, they are truly extraordinary, both on a personal level as well as musically. Their songs are full of emotions, variety, energy, beauty, and agitation. Their performance requires perhaps a tad more open-mindedness than must ordinarily be mustered, but they are one of the rare contemporary heavy rock acts with the courage to pursue their own, very unique path. Even that fact alone commands respect and makes them as perfect for a tour with Triptykon as they would have been in a pairing with Celtic Frost. We in Triptykon have all become fans.

"The combination of the three bands on this tour, 1349, Yakuza, and Triptykon, could not be any more unique and, in my humble (and biased) opinion, effective. It is a tour unlike any other."

1349 Issues Tour Update

Norwegian black metal fiends, 1349, who are co-headlining the "Weltenbrand World Tour" with Tom Warrior's TRIPTYKON, have launched a tour diary on the blog section of their Myspace page. Read an excerpt of the diary below:

"1349 are in Canada. We had a terrific night in Montreal last night; the show was fiery and the crowd seemed to revel in dark ecstasy. We also got to experience a particularly powerful show by Triptykon, which fueled us up for our own performance. Voivod’s own hometown is always a boost! We bring the killer-vibe with us to The Wreck Room in Toronto tonight, where we know that 1349 has a strong following. The band has had several great shows in this town, but tonight happens to be the first where Frost gets to meet the Toronto-crowd."

"Yesterday even saw the live-premiere of the song Pandemonium Was Bells, and we are happy to state that it went down really well with the audience. The song might appear in our live-set every now and then when the stars are right…but there are a few other gems in store for you as well." More...

Triptykon Frontman Checks In From The Road

Triptykon frontman Tom G. Warrior (formerly of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer) has checked in with an online update after the band began its first tour of North America. His message reads as follows:

"Very late in the evening of October 5, 2010, Triptykon arrived at John F. Kennedy airport in New York, flying in from London. The very next day, we played the group's first concert on North American soil, at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan, thereby embarking on the Weltenbrand co-headlining tour of the US and Canada, together with 1349.

"The Gramercy was filled with long-time friends and new acquaintances alike. Painter/tattoo artist Vincent Castiglia, who is such a major contributor to Triptykon's first album, publisher Ian Christe of Bazillion Points, who gave me the astounding news that my second book Only Death Is Real will already go into its third printing run, the extraordinary Kim Kelly, HR Giger's US agent Les Barany, who photographed and filmed the concert, master sculptor Eli Livingston, the artist behind HR Giger's jewelry and Celtic Frost's pendant, who showed me the prototype of a proposed miniature sculpture based on 1984's The Sitting Death Hellhammer EP cover drawing. There were many more. How good it felt to return to touring in North America, finally, after the past three eventful years."
