“Triptykon"- The Painting: A Brief Commentary

The manifold occult correspondences of all three artists come to fruition within the album release. Three, being a powerful numerological portent, embodies generation, perfection, and deity. Castiglia's contribution, 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), is likewise deeply laden with occult symbolism which harmonizes with both the evocations of Giger and Triptykon, namely endowing each band member with a talisman representing the traits of each quarter of the group; a foreboding astral catharsis culled from the 'unseen world' to commemorate the band's formation, and procession.

In keeping with semantics, Triptykon's release features the real-life "triptych" and three-fold collaboration between Triptykon the band (founded by Tom Warrior), renowned Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, and Vincent Castiglia for the first time within the same platform. As Celtic Frost fans will summon to mind the iconic cover album artwork for the band's 1985 release, To Mega Therion, featuring H.R. Giger's 1977 painting, Satan I, Giger's contribution to Eparistera Daimones marks a resurgence of the collaboration. Castiglia, a close friend of Warrior’s as well as being the first American artist to receive a solo exhibition invitation from the H.R. Giger Museum Gallery in Gruyères, Switzerland, becomes the third aspect of the dark "triptych".

Eparistera Daimones also marks the occasion of Castiglia’s poster-premier. Along with HR Giger's painting, Vlad Tepes, Castiglia’s Triptykon will additionally be featured as a fold-out poster within the LP vinyl edition of the album; the 1st time his artwork has been made available in poster form.

The original painting is currently in Castiglia's collection. Details as to it's availability will be published later in 2010.

Pete,

There's a little preview in the "News" section of the website. The whole image will be revealed when the album is released in March.

Okay there it is. Damn, thats going to kick ass. I'm half tempted to buy one of these, but since it will be included in poster format with the LP, I'll settle for that.

Wow. This is one hell of a package! Is it March 23rd yet? Shocked

Actually, Vincent should have the same image posted with the news item on his own website (under his "News" section) - I just saw it earlier this morning. Is it not there now?

It is there now. I had a hard time finding it, but it should be there in the news section.
