In the week of TRIPTYKON's much anticipated return appearances at Bloodstock Festival, UK (August 8), and Jalometalli Festival, Finland, (August 9), the Swiss avant-garde extreme Metal act is scheduled to release the first of two videos filmed to accompany of the group's second album, Melana Chasmata.
See the video, presented by Decibel Magazine, here:
The clip is an ominous visualisation of "Aurorae", one of the most poignant and personal songs on Melana Chasmata. It was directed by Philipp Hirsch (who previously collaborated with Triptykon for the group's highly acclaimed "Shatter" video clip), and filmed in Leipzig, Germany, earlier this year. As it was the case with "Shatter", the "Aurorae" clip is based on concepts by Hirsch and Triptykon singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior.
The "Aurorae" clip is to be followed later in 2014 by an EP of the same title, featuring additional unreleased music by the group and released through Century Media Records/Prowling Death Records. Moreover, the end of the year will see Triptykon embark on a major European tour with At The Gates.
Triptykon's "Melana Chasmata" is available in various physical formats (CD Mediabook, CD Jewelcase, Gatefold 2LP, ltd. Deluxe CD Box Set) from the following location:
