TRIPTYKON Mixing Debut Album

Former CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer, now working under the new name of TRIPTYKON, has issued the following update:

"This past Tuesday, I returned to Woodshed Studio in Bavaria, Germany, for the third time since we began studio work on Triptykon's debut album, Eparistera Daimones, in summer. While briefly back in Zurich, I finalized the album's artwork, and we recorded the piano, violin, and female vocals that will be featured in some of the songs. As Nadine Rimlinger played the violin on Saturday, it was impossible not to feel transferred back to 1987, when we recorded the classical musicians for "Into The Pandemonium". Even though we are producing a much darker and heavier album this time around, some of the sounds created by Nadine were at times eerily reminiscent of such era past.

The week in Zurich ended appropriately. Our friends in the incomparable PANTHEON I played in Zurich, and that same night, we made new friends in fellow touring act Zoroaster, who sound much like a staggering, modern incarnation of HELLHAMMER.

Now, back in Germany, we have commenced mixing the songs we recorded during prior sessions. It is a challenging and complex album to mix, not just because of its musical content. But this mixing session is at the same time also one of the most intriguing I have ever been a part of. This is an unusual album, for better or for worse, in a very distinctive context. It is winter here, cold, dark, and wet. An utterly perfect setting, then, for tomorrow's mixing session of 'The Prolonging', all 19 morbid, lumbering minutes of it."
