Album Review

Following 2010's Eparistera Daimones, the second full-length album from the latest band of legendary Celtic Frost founder Thomas Gabriel Fischer is simultaneously gloomily somber, crushingly heavy, and fast. Melana Chasmata continues his trademark raw, harsh style of extreme music combining elements of death, doom, and black metal. Its Greek title means "Ink-Black Chasms" and its disturbing cover artwork was done by renowned Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger. ~ John D. Buchanan, Rovi

A Metal Head's Must Have

Tom G Warrior is part of the foundation of Metal music, Most musicians at his stage of their career put out oh hum albums that remind you of their glory days.Not Tom he is still chasing his muse, his music is passionate and explosive, dark ,creepy yet beautiful. Better then their debut and maybe better then anything Tom has been involved with,and that's saying something!!!!

Buy this now!!!

So good. Reminds me of old Celtic frost. That super heavy guitar that Celtic frost had. Great songs. Mind blowing.

Great Work!

Triptykon has returned after four years with another winner. The sound is not all that much different from Eparistera Daimones, but still adds some new tricks into the fold, including some acoustic guitar melodies and a sick blues solo during the last song "Waiting". It also has a slightly more laid-back tone with some of their most hypnotizing riffs to date (works great with weed I can imagine). Very good, solid release from these masters of doom.
