TRIPTYKON TO KICK OFF DEBUT NORTH AMERICAN TOUR; “Weltenbrand Tour 2010” coming to a city near you this month

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND – Swiss extreme metal act, Triptykon, will kick off their first ever North American tour, the “Weltenbrand Tour 2010”, tonight in New York City. Norway’s technical black metal band,1349, and Chicago’s veteran progressive metal act, Yakuza, will round out the package on the highly anticipated North American live debut of the 2008 project created by Tom Gabriel Warrior (Celtic Frost, Hellhammer). The month-long voyage is sure to be this fall’s heaviest tour.

Tom Gabriel Warrior (vocals, guitars) describes his emotions of anticipation on this new undertaking:

“Ever since my earliest days in Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, I have been extremely fortunate to be able to count on the support, fanaticism, and immense loyalty of the North American metal scene. The recognition my work has received there eclipses anything I have ever encountered in my own native country. Of the 125 concerts performed on the final Celtic Frost tour in 2006 and 2007, for example, a full 71 were played in North America. Some of these performances rank among the most memorable ones in my entire career.”

“It is thus an immense honor for me to now bring my new group Triptykon to North America for the first time. Triptykon is further pursuing the path I once began with Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, and I am looking forward to continuing to forge this darkest of musical alliances with all of you. We shall all celebrate masses of unleashed heaviness and morbidity. Only death is real!”

Triptykon will also release a brand new EP, ‘Shatter’, while on American soil later this month. The five-song EP is set to hit stores on October 25th, courtesy of Century Media Records (under license from Prowling Death Records Ltd.), and follows the band’s highly acclaimed debut album, Eparistera Daimones, which released in March. ‘Shatter’ will be available as a CD, digital download, and 12″ vinyl. The EP will further contain the lyrics to all songs as well as detailed liner notes and credits.

The EP’s track listing is…

01. Shatter

02. I Am The Twilight

03. Crucifixus

04. Circle Of The Tyrants (live)

05. Dethroned Emperor (live) – Featuring guest lead vocals by Nocturno Culto of Darkthrone/Sarke
