A to Z 2K17: T is for Triptykon

Band:  Triptykon
Song:  Tree Of Suffocating Souls
Album:  Melana Chasmata
Genre:  Gothic Metal, Black Metal, Death Metal

Released almost exactly 3 years ago, Melana Chasmata made some waves in the Metal community.  While I think his name is a little funny, frontman Tom G. Warrior really has a talent for throwing some really dark music together.

Honestly I had a really hard time picking today's song.  There was the absolutely stunningly beautiful video for Shatter, but I had posted it before.  Then there was Boleskine House which is eerily wonderful, especially when you get the female vocals harmonizing.

I decided to hit this song though, because it had a music video and Boleskine didn't.

Please enjoy this wonderfully dark song, is just nice music.

Side note, you know H R Giger, the mind behind the design of the alien in Alien?  He designed some of Tom G Warrior guitars and all of Triptykon's album covers.  Obviously he's dead now so I'm not sure who they'll go to for the next album's art, but we'll see if they can live up to the art of the rather deranged Giger's work.

  1. Just ain't my gig. I'm into soul, blues, classic rock, and true country music.

    1. I would still advise checking out the Shatter video though, the visuals in it are just stunning. The way they play with shadows and perception are really solid and the music is really doomy
