TRIPTYKON "Requiem - Live at Roadburn 2019" with the Dutch Metropole Orkest

One of the most anticipated releases of the year is finally here, "Requiem (Live at Roeadburn 2019)" performed by TRIPTYKON  with the Metropole Orkest. 

"Requiem" consist of two now classic CELTIC FROST chapters and a newly writen part, performed for the first time in its entirety with full classical orquestration by the Dutch Metropole Orkest

"Requiem” (46:00 min.) is composed of three chapters:
I - “Rex Irae” (06:34 min.) (First appeared on 1987’s “Into The Pandemonium” album by Celtic Frost)
II - "Grave Eternal” (32:28 min.) (Newly written middle part)
III - "Winter” (06:54 min.) (First appeared on 2006’s “Monotheist” album by Celtic Frost)

Next I would like to share the words of Tom Gabriel Warrior about "Requiem" expressed on the official TRIPTYKON web:

“We are truly, deeply delighted to be able to have been granted the opportunity to finish this unique project begun by Celtic Frost so many years ago, and to finally share the completed recording with the world. This album is the result of two years of passionate work, and it marks the conclusion of a musical idea first considered over three decades ago. Moreover, this "Requiem" also represents drummer Hannes Grossmann's first recording with Triptykon, and we are very proud to feature him in such an extraordinary context.
It was an incredible honour to collaborate with the Metropole Orkest, conductor Jukka Iisakkila, guest vocalist Safa Heraghi, and the esteemed Roadburn festival. In fact, there couldn't have been a better partner for the "Requiem" project than Roadburn.
We are releasing this "Requiem" album in memoriam of our deeply missed friends and collaborators Martin Eric Ain and HR Giger.”

The wonderful frontcover artwork named "Blood Angel" was created by Daniele Valeriani.
