Triptykon

"Very late in the evening of October 5, 2010, Triptykon arrived at John F. Kennedy airport in New York, flying in from London. The very next day, we played the group's first concert on North American soil, at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan, thereby embarking on the Weltenbrand co-headlining tour of the US and Canada, together with 1349.

"The Gramercy was filled with long-time friends and new acquaintances alike. Painter/tattoo artist Vincent Castiglia, who is such a major contributor to Triptykon's first album, publisher Ian Christe of Bazillion Points, who gave me the astounding news that my second book Only Death Is Real will already go into its third printing run, the extraordinary Kim Kelly, HR Giger's US agent Les Barany, who photographed and filmed the concert, master sculptor Eli Livingston, the artist behind HR Giger's jewelry and Celtic Frost's pendant, who showed me the prototype of a proposed miniature sculpture based on 1984's The Sitting Death Hellhammer EP cover drawing. There were many more. How good it felt to return to touring in North America, finally, after the past three eventful years." [Tom G Warrior]

Ungh! Gramercy Theater echoed with the trademark Tom Warrior grunt as Triptykon played their first show on US soil in NYC on Wednesday night (10/6). The show, which featured appearances from 1349, Yakuza, and locals Immolith was the first for the Trip/1349/Yakuza package, which will last through the end of the month.

Although Triptykon did play some choice Celtic Frost material (setlist below... "Circle of Tyrants", no "Usurper"!), all three bands are touring in support of their latest recorded output: Triptykon has the new Shatter EP along with the Epistera Daimones full-length. 1349 unleashed Demonoir earlier this year, and Yakuza's Of Seismic Consequence is out now via Profound Lore.

More pictures from the show, including Triptykon's setlist, are below...

Good job....great show, looking forward to playing with some of these bands after our release of "Luciferian WAR" in the closing of 2010.

Triptykon looks so corny but I actually think their music is pretty good. Seriously though, enough with the Hot Topic metal look.

The Debbil make an appearance at 23rd and Lex...between Duane Reade and Dunkin' Donuts.

Actually, now that I write it - what better place?
