Tom Warrior Recommends Fans Don't Buy Box Set Of Latest Triptykon Release
Triptykon's upcoming sophomore full-length album, "Melana Chasmata" will be released on April 14th (Europe) and April 15th (North America) through Century Media Records. Tom Gabriel Warrior has now issued the following statement however about not endorsing one edition of the release:
"The box set with extra items, limited to an edition of 2000, contains the mediabook edition of the album. It is not a Triptykon product, however, but a Century Media idea (much like the 10" box is a Nuclear Blast-only edition). I strongly dislike the CM box, and it is my personal recommendation to Triptykon's fans not to purchase it.
"CM have licensed the rights for the album and can thus market it as they wish, but that doesn't mean there are merits in such a limited edition venture. I personally feel it is in bad taste and does not represent Triptykon. All items which are officially issued by Triptykon (i.e., the mediabook CD, the pendant, and the tote bag) will be available separately through the usual outlets, so there is no need to support such a cheap and ill-fitting marekting venture."
"Melana Chasmata" will have the following track listing:
1. Tree Of Suffocating Souls
2. Boleskine House
3. Altar Of Deceit
6. Demon Pact
7. In The Sleep Of Death
8. Black Snow
