Triptykon Announces New Album "Melana Chasmata"

Triptykon is the occult/avant-garde metal band formed by Hellhammer/Celtic Frost singer Tom Gabriel Warrior.

Warrior is proud to announce the group's second album, "Melana Chasmata," is now set to be released on April 15th in North America. The album's release is a collaboration between the group's own label, Prowling Death Records Ltd., and Century Media Records.

This is the same label partnership already responsible for Celtic Frost's final album, "Monotheist" (2006), Hellhammer's "Demon Entrails" demo compendium (2008), and Triptykon's debut album, "Eparistera Daimones" and "Shatter" EP (2010).

"Melana Chasmata" is evolving to be a vastly varied and strikingly dark and heavy album. The album's title may be translated, approximately, as "black, deep depressions/valleys."

Songwriting, arrangement, and recording sessions for "Melana Chasmata" occurred intermittently since 2011. Among the music available for inclusion on the album are songs such as "Boleskine House," "Stasis," "Gate To My Own Death," "Demon Pact," "Gehinnam," "Tree Of Suffocated Souls," "Unchristian Anthem," and many more. A final track listing will be issued in due course, along with further details on both album and artwork.

Tom Gabriel Warrior comments: "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."
