Swiss avant-garde extreme metal act, Triptykon, have announced the release of their Requiem opus, on May 15th via Prowling Death Records / Century Media Records worldwide.
”Requiem” (Live At Roadburn 2019) marks the bombastic conclusion of a project over 30 years in the making: The legendary Celtic Frost/Triptykon Requiem performed for the first time in its entirety and with full classical orchestration by the Dutch Metropole Orkest.
Tom Gabriel Warrior about the live 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 honor 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.”
