Pim B. : I was confronted by the fact that Triptykon’s debut ‘Eparistera Daimones’ got the full score, since I get the chance top review new album ‘Melana Chasmata’. Personally I wouldn’t give 100 points to an album that easily as it would mean it is perfect, which basically is impossible. This second album isn’t perfect either but it is better compared to the predecessor. That basically is because of the compositions. The 9 songs are varied and showcase a mixture of death, doom and black metal. The overall sound is really heavy courtesy of the great production by Tom Gabriel Warrior and V. Santura. Another striking feature is the vocals by Warrior. He shows he is a versatile singer. Also Santura and bassist Vanja can be heard vocally on the album. The vocals in general add a lot to the variation within the songs on ‘Melana Chasmata’. When you add up everything we hear a very strong album that is the perfect follow-up to ‘Eparistera Daimones’. That album was chosen as the best album of 2010 on this website. I can predict that the same will happen to ‘Melana Chasmata’ as I think there won’t be a better album this year. Triptykon delivered a top album that you have to hear.
