Former CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Fischer, now working under the new banner TRIPTYKON, has issued the following update:
"We finished mixing Triptykon's first album at Woodshed Studio in Germany late last week. I have now returned to Switzerland, where we will have it mastered by Walter Schmid at his Oakland Recording studio in Winterthur, Switzerland, on Monday. Walter already mastered Celtic Frost's Monotheist in 2006 and thus bestowed upon it its exceptionally loud and powerful sound. He managed to do this without cranking the album into unwanted distortion or clipping, i.e., without falling prone to the pitfalls of the loudness wars of recent years. The test master he did of one of the songs from Eparistera Daimones promises the same approach.
This will mark the musical culmination of some two years of work on this project. Regardless of whether one will hate or love the music we have created with Triptykon, Eparistera Daimones is an album with a very unique background and a truly unique history. Neither of which have been contrived. Come what may, nothing will ever be able to diminish that.
