Triptykon performed the Celtic Frost & Triptykon "Requiem" in its entirety at Roadburn 2019 with the Dutch Metropole Orkest. That performance will now be released on May 15 as Requiem (Live at Roadburn 2019), and will feature the following track list.
- "Rex Irae" (06:34 min.) (First appeared on 1987's Into The Pandemonium album by Celtic Frost)
- "Grave Eternal" (32:28 min.) (Newly written middle part)
- "Winter" (06:54 min.) (First appeared on 2006's Monotheist album by Celtic Frost)
Here's what Triptykon vocalist and guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior had to say about the performance and release.
"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."
