Swiss avant-garde metal gods Triptykon have just released a brand new video for the eight-minute-long epic opening track of their masterpiece album Melana Chasmata.
The track is called “Tree of Suffocating Souls” and is the second video from the album, following up the outstanding “Aurorae.” Much like its predecessor, this video is shot entirely in black and white, but this one stands as more of a straight ahead performance clip.
Watch the video for “Tree of Suffocating Souls” here below.
Here’s a project I am highly excited about — an illustrated Celtic Frost tribute graphic novel!
Coming this Fall is Morbid Tales!: An Illustrated Tribute to Celtic Frost, a graphic novel anthology from CV Comics that documents the fictional/factual history of the Swiss metal band that will delve more into the music rather than lyrics. The group, fronted by Tom G. Warrior (currently in the band Triptykon) released several records in the 80s to much acclaim, like their 1984 debut Morbid Tales before they dove a bit too far into the experimental realm (Into the Pandemonium) and then completely alienated their thrash/blac metal fanbase with their failed foray into hair metal (Cold Lake).
CVComics has released a trailer for their upcoming book, which you can view here below.
Triptykon, the band led by former Hellhammer and Celtic Frost front man Thomas Gabriel Warrior (aka Thomas Gabriel Fischer, aka Tom G. Warrior), has just released the official video for the song “Aurorae.”
Watch the video for “Aurorae” here below.
The song is the fifth track off the band’s epic album Melana Chasmata, which is currently my frontrunner for album of the year. For my full review of the album, click here.
You might recall recently, on the last day of 2011, we had a look at the music from 25 years ago – our personal choices from the albums of 1986.
Now we’re into 2012, the Social Blend podcast has decided to look at the music from 25 years before now: 1987 in music, which was a huge years for the rock and metal scenes.
Craniumelody, which is the music issue of the SB podcast, travels back in the time machine with some tunes from 1987 – including The Cult, Choirboys, Celtic Frost, Midnight Oil, Grateful Dead, Sonic Youth, and more.
