Official press release: Triptykon's second album, Melana Chasmata (rough translation: "black, deep depressions/valleys") will be released on April 14 (Europe) and April 15 (North America), 2014, through Century Media Records/Prowling Death Records Ltd. Like its predecessor Eparistera Daimones, the album was produced by Triptykon's singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior and guitarist V. Santura and recorded and mixed at V. Santura's own Woodshed Studio in southern Germany as well as at Triptykon's rehearsal facilities in Zurich, Switzerland, in 2013 and 2014. Those who have already heard Melana Chasmata have described it as "atmospheric, dark, diabolical, and dramatic", "diverse, epic, and doomy, but on an entirely different level", "a fierce boulder of abhorrence", or "very heavy and yet very aesthetic at the same time". Melana Chasmata will feature the following nine songs, at a playing time of around 67 minutes: 1. Tree Of Suffocating Souls 2. Boleskine House 3. Altar Of Deceit 4. Breathing 5. Aurorae 6. Demon Pact 7. In The Sleep Of Death 8. Black Snow 9. Waiting Further new Triptykon music has been recorded, to be released as an EP or mini album later in 2014 or early in 2015.
