Triptykon Bring 'Eparistera Daimones' Debut Back to Vinyl

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Mar 11, 2016

It's been six years since Swiss metal lord Tom G. Warrior delivered Eparistera Daimones, the experimental debut LP from his gloom-soaked Triptykon project. Since original vinyl copies have become scarce, the band are giving their introductory assault a new pressing this spring.

A press release confirms that Prowling Death/Century Media will deliver the re-release on April 1. This marks the first time the album has been put onto vinyl since 2010. Copies of the first press are generally selling for just under $200 CDN on resale sites like Discogs.

"We feel very grateful to our audiences and truly honoured that Triptykon's debut album is still met with sufficient demand to warrant yet another edition, years after its initial release," Warrior said in a statement. "Not least because we, too, have always considered the vinyl version of the album to be the ultimate, crowning edition."

While the record had originally been delivered in both a traditional double-LP edition and a deluxe picture disc box set that added the five-song Shatter EP, the upcoming repress will fixate on Eparistera Daimones proper. It will pop up on black vinyl, as well as four limited runs on silver, clear, white and transparent-blue wax. You can find out more info over here.

Exclaim!'s review of the record back in 2010 called Eparistera Daimones an "incredibly oppressive album" that mixed its crushing moments with "wave-y guitar work," quiet interludes and spoken word. You'll find the full review here, while that'd be the truly terrifying, H.R. Giger-prepped cover art up above.

Triptykon's last release was 2014's Melana Chasmata.
