Triptycon - With Full Force - Ferropolis, Germany - June 23, 2017Triptycon is a Swiss extreme metal band originally from Zürich, Switzerland, but living in Zagreb, Croatia. Tom G. Warrior had previously led bands including Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, and Apollyon Sun, until he formed this project in 2008. The band has released an EP in 2010, and a single and a full album, Melana Chasmata, in 2014.
The stage was set up with very thick impenetrable light, lots of heavy greens, blues, reds, and violets. Vanja Slajh hid her face behind her long black hair for most of the set, until the heavier riffs kicked in and she was seen grooving and rocking out. Norman Lonhard was invisible behind the curtain of the smoke machine light, and V. Santura was backing Thomas on the vocals and leading the set on guitar. Tom Warrior played guitar duos with both Vanja and Norman, creating phantom silhouettes. Everyone wore black eye mask make-up and put on a proper metal performance.
