Extreme metal band Triptykon have announced the release of “Requiem”, recorded at last year’s Roadburn festival.
The three-part Requiem started with frontman Tom Gabriel Warrior’s first group Celtic Frost back in 1987 on their Into The Pandemonium album, and the final section was released on their Monotheist album in 2006. The middle section, however, was never released… until Triptykon’s Roadburn set.
Over 30 years in the making, Tom Warrior managed to end what he started, performing Requiem in its entirety with full classical orchestration by the Dutch Metropole Orkest.
“We are releasing this Requiem album in memoriam of our deeply missed friends and collaborators Martin Eric Ain and HR Giger.”
Requiem will be released on May 15, 2020, via Prowling Death Records / Century Media Records.
