I like artwork but what about a Triptykon album cover featuring one of Mr.Fischer's death masks with the background shaded in or something ?


"Too personal" maybe as the group isn´t the solo effort of him but a real group.

. . Pink Floyd have an album cover with the group mask concept- A 'Wall' Live record?(In The Flesh?)~~~ I am confident that whatever Tom has chosen, it will be kick-ass;& also something unexpected . . .

'Just an idea. Never meant to imply Tom's running his own gig here.

I figure that we may be seeing some adverts for the album in the Feb. round of metal mags. The labels seem to usually like running some a month, or a little more, early. If this is the case, there is a possibility that the cover will be included in the ad. So, we may all know within a week or two what that looks like. Of course, it may also just be a 'piece' of a larger image. Exciting though! The release is just around the corner. - Promo copies (for review) will be put out there soon as well,+for+March+mags.+.++

I can't see it from here. Rats.

EDIT: the Blabbermouth page worked fine. Interesting. Impaling. Demons on the Left. Bloody portraits. I am intrigued by what the thematic arc of this album will be.

Press Release

For Immediate Release

February 1, 2010



TRIPTYKON - "Eparistera Daimones" Album Artwork Announced



"Eparistera Daimones", the forthcoming debut album by Triptykon, the group founded by former Hellhammer/Celtic Frost singer and guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior, is not only musically a leviathan. Remarkably, the album will also feature the epic artwork by renowned Swiss artist H.R. Giger and New York-based surrealist Vincent Castiglia.



In an exceptionally rare gesture, HR Giger has granted Triptykon the use of his dramatic painting "Vlad Tepes" (work no. 412, 200 x 140 cm, acrylic on paper on wood, 1978). It is the artist's first authorized appearance on an album cover in 17 years, and the second time he collaborates with Warrior (following Celtic Frost's "To Mega Therion" album in 1985).



Vincent Castiglia contributes "Triptykon", a specially created portrait of the members of the group, painted in the artist's own blood (86 x 86 cm, blood/iron oxide on archival paper, 2009). As Castiglia aptly put it, the amalgamation of works by HR Giger, Vincent Castiglia, and Triptykon on "Eparistera Daimones" forms a creative triptych in itself.



HR Giger: I am very proud to work with Triptykon. My art hasn't appeared on an album cover for quite some time, and I feel honored to have been approached by Tom about such a collaboration for Triptykon's very first release.

Vincent Castiglia: It's been a tremendous honor to work with both Triptykon and HR Giger on the forthcoming release of, "Eparistera Daimones". It was a project of enormous depth for me, conceptually as well as visually. I think the resonance between Triptykon's music, Giger's art, and my work is extremely powerful, and it coalesces in quite an amazing, and singular way.



Tom Gabriel Warrior: We feel deeply privileged to be able to adorn our very first album with the work of two artists we respect enormously. To us, their astonishing contributions convey significant symbolism both with respect to our personal frame of mind as well as for this particular album and its history.



It is an immense pleasure to be able to work with HR Giger again. He was one of our most significant mentors during the days of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost, and he is an extraordinary human being and an artist without equal.



Vincent Castiglia has become a close friend in recent years, and we both sensed that the time had come to create something truly unique together. I am infinitely grateful that he has lent us his incredible talent, not least because I know he incorporates as much passion, darkness, and pain into his work as I do, too.

And no heptagram on the front cover, anyway. But I guess the last album to have some version on the cover was Morbid Tales.

. . . there is a fantastic 'close-up' of a piece of the painting on Tom's blog.~~~ I love what we have here: the title is a part of a Crowleyan designed 'Banishment Ritual';-& the title of Giger's painting references the most famous 'Vampire' of them all. It looks like we will have alot of symbolism to gnaw on through this work. It is, of course, best to soak it all in as a whole ( sound please!& LOUD!) . . .
