Legendary CELTIC FROST mainman Tom Gabriel Warrior (also HELLHAMMER) has issued the following TRIPTYKON update:

"Triptykon's current rehearsal and arrangement sessions for the forthcoming second album sound sweepingly heavy, epic, and dark. And utterly diverse. Such music - and, indeed, the experience of creating it - is deeply alluring, even addictive.

The path leading to this point has been unexpectedly long and extremely challenging, even if for reasons largely unrelated to the group. And yet, we are reminded every time we meet why we have persisted. Love Triptykon or feel profound hatred for us, but this group sounds like no other - except the two from which we have arisen.

It will still be a few months until the music that is 'Daemon', 'Into Despair', 'Sycophant', 'Boleskine House', 'Tree Of Suffocated Souls', and many more, will be committed to the album proper. But having progressed, finally, so far into the process in this manner is moving beyond description."

Eparistera Daimones, Triptykon's debut album, was released through Century Media Records in 2010.
