Haunting The Chapel

Win Tickets To Triptykon’s Haunting The Chapel-Presented First North American Headlining Tour

In addition to Triptykon, Tom G. Warrior’s post-Celtic Frost outfit (and keepers of one of 2010’s best records in Eparistera Daimones), you’ll also catch longtime Norwegian technical black metal experimentalists 1349 and progressive Haunting The Chapel regulars Yakuza (also owners of one of the year’s best metal records, Of Seismic Consequence).

There are five pairs of tickets. One pair per winner. You choose the date, city. If you want them, send an email to me with the subject line “Triptykon Ticket Giveaway.” THE LINES ARE CLOSED I’ll pick five winners at random and contact them by noon EST tomorrow (9/30). It goes without saying, Warrior’s brilliant live. (And remember how excited I was about Yakuza in Austin last year…) But if you need to get into the mood first, take a listen to a track from Eparistera Daimones:

Triptykon – “Descendant”

Also, keep watch for the band’s five-song Shatter EP out 10/25 via Century Media. It closes with a live take on “Dethroned Emperor” featuring guest vocals from Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto.

UPDATE: We’ve decided to offer five more pairs of tickets, again to any show on the itinerary. If you’d like to enter, please comment below with your favorite Tom G. Warrior album. From any of his bands or periods … I’ll choose five winners at noon EST on Tuesday, 10/5. The winners have been selected, contacted.
