Seeing Triptykon, the new musical outlet of Hellhammer/Celtic Frost originator Tom G. Warrior, at the Summer Breeze festival in Dinkelsbuhl, Germany just a couple of weeks ago was an awesome experience. They played in the small indoor “Party” stage, and while I’m surprised that they didn’t get a main stage spot, it was a fantastic show. I wasn’t able to get a media pass for that festival unfortunately, so no photos or anything else, only a few notes tapped into my phone during the performance and what’s in my head.

Tom’s new bandmates are, not surprisingly, very good players. They’re also very young and pretty, which makes for an interesting contrast with the main man himself. Eparistera Daimones, which I have on both CD and limited edition awesome sauce vinyl, is one of my favourite albums so far this year.

So… that there will be a new EP, Shatter, released next month is an excellent piece of news indeed. The tracklist includes three new versions of songs recorded during the recording of the ED album, and two live Celtic Frost songs from their Roadburn festival show in April, including Dethroned Emperor with Nocturno Culto on vocals. It will be released digitally, on CD and vinyl.

Unfortunately I can’t seem to find a preorder link anywhere…
