Triptykon To Release “Requiem (Live At Roadburn 2019)” In May

Triptykon have announced that their new live release, “Requiem (Live At Roadburn 2019),“ will be available on May 15. The effort features the band’s special orchestral set at last year’s Roadburn Festival in which they performed a three-part “Requiem” composed of “Rex Irae” off Celtic Frost’s “Into The Pandemonium,” “Winter” off Celtic Frost’s “Monotheist,” and the recently finished “Grave Eternal.”

Tom G. Warrior commented:

“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 honour 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.”
