TRIPTYKON, the group formed by former Hellhammer / Celtic Frost singer, guitarist, and main songwriter Tom Gabriel Warrior, will release their highly anticipated album "Eparistera Daimones" in March 2010. To catch a glimpse at this monolithic opus either visit the band’s official MySpace page where you can already stream two full songs (www.myspace.com/triptykonofficial) or watch the following atmospheric online teaser clips featuring short music samples taken from the album: Triptykon1, Triptykon2, Triptykon3, Triptykon4. "Eparistera Daimones" will be released as deluxe mediabook CD edition incl. 28-page booklet and extensive liner notes as well as gatefold double LP via Century Media Records under exclusive license from Prowling Death Records Ltd. on the following dates: Germany / Austria / Switzerland / Italy: March 19, 2010. UK / Benelux / France / Greece / Denmark / Norway / Portugal / rest of Europe: March 22, 2010. Spain: March 23, 2010. Sweden / Finland / Hungary: March 24, 2010. In an exceptionally rare gesture, HR Giger has granted TRIPTYKON the use of his dramatic painting "Vlad Tepes" (work no. 412, 200 x 140 cm, acrylic on paper on wood, 1978). It is the artist’s first authorized appearance on an album cover in 17 years, and the second time he collaborates with Warrior (following Celtic Frost’s "To Mega Therion" album in 1985). A new and exclusive gallery showing HR Giger and "Vlad Tepes" from 1978 has been added to the "Multimedia / Imagery" section on the band’s official homepage www.triptykon.net. Furthermore, TRIPTYKON have announced a couple of warm-up shows prior to the band’s appearance at this year’s Roadburn Festival where Tom G. Warrior is hosting the special event Only Death Is Real on April 16th. The upcoming TRIPTYKON live dates you will find in our tourdates section.
