Former Celtic Frost/current Triptykon mainman Tom Fischer has posted the following message online:

"I am not exaggerating when stating that words are simply inadequate to express sufficient gratitude for the warm and very thoughtful treatment extended to Triptykon bassist Vanja Slajh and I by Bohren und der Club of Gore last Saturday. Bohren added their show in Lucerne, Switzerland, relatively late to their tour to promote their new Dolores album. But it was a perfect and long-awaited chance for me to meet once again with Christoph, Thorsten, Robin, and, of course, Morten, with whom I have been friends for years. It has been a while, and we all were looking forward very much to seeing each other again.

"In spite of having to take care of the usual countless affairs associated with playing a concert abroad, Bohren and their amazing agent Susanne Herrndorf went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. It was a truly memorable evening of reflective conversations and black humor among kindred spirits. Needless to say, the concert was exceptional.

"And the German translation of the above text for Morten, who is always struggling with my pretentious English: Unsere Übereinstimmung in Sachen erste Overkill 12 EP sowie Pagan Altar übertraf sogar die Entdeckung Deiner zerschnittenen Flasche.

"And then, long-standing (and long-suffering) Celtic Frost guitar techs Deichkind and Markus Faradaco stopped by Switzerland yesterday as part of the crew of the current CHILDREN OF BODOM/MACHINE HEAD/SLIPKNOT tour. They, too, have in the past often gone far beyond the call of duty for us, and I hadn't seen them since the final few concerts of Celtic Frost's career, in late 2007. It was a quite emotional reunion to me, and we vowed to work together again when Triptykon begins to tour."
