Glad that the sun is shining at the moment. The music on this new album of
Triptykon breaths a dark, depressive kind of evil and melancholy atmosphere.
first song starts very aggressive and the anger and hate can be heard in that
song, it is together with "Breathing" one of the faster tracks on this album.
The following 2 tracks are a lot slower and are both build around doomy and
heavy riffs, with very dominating bass lines. After the fast and reminding of
Celtic Frost track "Breathing", the melancholy track "Aurorae" follows.
several songs the band uses sound effects and that makes a lot of songs sound
very spooky. The best example of that can be heard in the song "Demon Pact",
together with Tom's intense vocals and the very slow riffs this is one of the
weirdest, but also most impressive songs. "In the Sleep of Death" gives me a kind
of desperate feeling, it is a track with influences of Type O Negative in it.
The longest track "Black Snow" follows and although the riff that carries the
song is rather strong, near the end it gets a bit boring. The entire album is a
good follow up of their 2010 release "Eparistera Daimones" and if you liked that
album, you can buy this with your eyes closed. In fact everything you can expect
from Tom G. Warrior is on 'Melana Chasmata'.
Heavy, slow, dark, desperate, impressive, melancholy, gothic, pitchblack and
spooky music the way we like it.
