Triptykon – Melana Chasmata

Melana_Chasmata1-600x600 Triptykon is set to release their 2nd full length album Melana Chasmata on Tuesday April 15th with Century Media backing. For those who don’t know, Triptykon is a Sweden metal band that is dark and extreme as their music dictates. If you like dark nightmarish metal with a splash of gothic insights then this will appeal to your taste in music. After listening to this album, musically, you can definitely hear the influences of early thrash metal bands. For me personally Nuclear Assault is just one name that comes to mind.

Tom Gabriel Warrior (Voice, Guitars, Programming) is a major force behind Triptykon and has long since been in the metal forefront with such bands as Celtic FrostHellhammer. Along with V Santura (Guitars, Voice) who is also been a part of some metal bands of his own like Dark Fortress & Obscura bring in a world full of dark brutal music that will definitely take you on a journey of the unknown. Rounding out the rest of the band is Norman Lonhard (Drums, Percussion) which are just intense and full of angst and Vanja Slajh rounding it off on the Bass.

As someone from the vinyl era and love album artwork, Melana Chasmata album artwork was created by is by surrealist Swedish painter H. R. Giger. Giger is such an amazing artist in his own right. Go take a look at his work. Some of it might even look familiar.

You can expect a Triptykon to start making its way on to the stage as Melana Chasmata is released right before the summer festivals are set to begin. Do yourself a favor a pick up this album for your friend who wants something a little gothic, a little fast, and a lot of darkness. Although this is the 2nd album released, it seems as though this is as good as their first if not better.
