Triptykon To Release “Requiem (Live At Roadburn 2019)” In May


Triptykon have a May 15th release date planned for their “Requiem” live release. Titled “Requiem (Live At Roadburn 2019)“, the outing will arrive on Prowling Death Records/Century Media Records. You may recall that Triptykon‘s performance at last year’s ‘Roadburn Festival‘ saw the Tom G. Warrior-ed outfit perform a three-part requiem that originated during the latter’s time in Celtic Frost.

To that end, the Dutch Metropole Orkest was enlisted for a set that opened with “Rex Irae” off Celtic Frost‘s “Into The Pandemonium” and closed with “Winter‘ off “Monotheist“. The then newly completed “Grave Eternal” served as the second movement.

Warrior commented of the coming release:

“We are truly, deeply delighted to be able to have been granted the opportunity to finish this unique project begun by Celtic Frost so many years ago, and to finally share the completed recording with the world, This album is the result of two years of passionate work, and it marks the conclusion of a musical idea first considered over three decades ago.

Moreover, this Requiem also represents drummer Hannes Grossmann‘s first recording with Triptykon, and we are very proud to feature him in such an extraordinary context.

It was an incredible honour to collaborate with the Metropole Orkest, conductor Jukka Iisakkila, guest vocalist Safa Heraghi, and the esteemed Roadburn festival. In fact, there couldn’t have been a better partner for the “Requiem” project than Roadburn.

We are releasing this Requiem album in memoriam of our deeply missed friends and collaborators Martin Eric Ain and HR Giger.”

Pre-orders will launch on March 20th.
