Triptykon is an incredible force of extreme metal. Over the course of the band’s career, the Swiss metalheads have release two studio albums, those being Eparistera Daimones (released in 2010) and Melana Chasmata (2014).

Two studio albums – as well as one EP and a live album – may not sound like a lot, but trust us, Triptykon is epic as hell. But at some point in the future, the band will have another release to add to their discography, for in 2023, they will be working on new material!

Via a recent conversation with Metal Injection, band member Tom G. Warrior talked about the band’s plans to record new material next year. When asked about Triptykon releasing a new album, this is what Tom had to say:

“I actually have no problem giving you an official statement. Why not? Last time we spoke was, of course, the beginning of the pandemic, and we thought we’re going to use that time to write a new album. But as it turned out, the pandemic had the opposite effect on all of us. None of us felt inspired being confined to our homes, not having any contact, in person closer to each other, not having any contact to our audiences, not being on the stage, not traveling. I wrote one song during the two years of the pandemic, even though I wanted to write more.

“But that has changed now, of course, that we’re back as an active band and we are actually going to record a new album next year. That’s our solid plan, that we’re actually working on it now. We have just played the last concert for the year and everybody is now going to their home or finishing up their individual ideas and then we will next meet to rehearse those. So the official plan is for us to finish it next year. And I’m not sure if it’s going to be enough to release it next year, but we certainly will release new music next year, even if it’s not a full album yet. We will definitely do an EP or something to show people that we are actually in the studio and the album is actually happening.”

That is incredible! We are beyond thrilled to finally hear some new music from the band. If you have yet to check out Triptykon, we’ve included some songs of theirs below for you to listen to.
