TRIPTYKON — the group formed by former HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST singer, guitarist, and main songwriter Tom Gabriel Warrior — has been invited to play a very special and exceptional show on June 23 in Abtenau, Austria, near Salzburg. The concert will take place at a mountain lodge surrounded by breathtaking vistas of the high Alps for a celebration of summer solstice. The number of tickets will be strictly limited to 300 in order to preserve the intimacy and exclusivity of this unique location. More information can be found at www.speckjaga.at.
“Shatter”, the latest five-track EP from TRIPTYKON, sold around 500 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 90 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Shatter” was released on October 25, 2010 (Europe) and October 26, 2010 (North America).
At a playing time of approximately 28 minutes, “Shatter” consists almost entirely of previously unreleased music.
TRIPTYKON consists of V. Santura (guitar, vocals), Norman Lonhard (drums, percussion), Vanja Slajh (bass), and Tom Gabriel Fischer (voice, guitars). The group has unambiguously stated that it pursues the continuation and further development of the path Warrior began in HELLHAMMER and CELTIC FROST.
