Triptykon's second album, 'Melana Chasmata' (Rough translation: black, deep depressions/valleys) will be released on April 14 in Europe and April 15 in North America through Century Media Records/Prowling Death Records Ltd.
To commemorate the unveiling of 'Melana Chasmata', Century Media will release a collector's gatefold 7" vinyl single, featuring the album songs 'Breathing' and 'Boleskine House'. 'The Breathing' single will contain an approximate playing time of 13 (!) minutes and its cover artwork can be seen above.

'Breathing' and 'Boleskine House' will also be available as a digital single (including the option for a digital booklet), and they will be streamed on YouTube and Soundcloud as of release date.
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".
Triptykon consists of V. Santura (guitar, vocals), Norman Lonhard (drums, percussion), Vanja Slajh (bass, vocals), and Tom Gabriel Warrior (voice, guitars).
