Triptykon - Announce Drummer Auditions


Triptykon, the Swiss band fronted by former Hellhammer and Celtic Frost singer, guitarist, and main songwriter Tom Gabriel Fischer, will play their final concerts with drummer Norman Lonhard at Spain's Leyendas Del Rock and Germany's Party.San festivals later this month. So, they are opening auditions for the position. You can read the band's full statement below.

It says: "Norman joined Triptykon in December of 2008, thereby completing the freshly formed band. He recorded two acclaimed albums, an EP, and a single with the group, appeared in all of Triptykon's video clips, and performed uncounted concerts around the globe with us.

"We are proud of Triptykon's exceedingly stable line-up, not least in light of some of the events that transpired in Triptykon's predecessor, Celtic Frost. It reflects Triptykon's internal spirit of harmony that this first departure of a member of the group occurs in true friendship and deep mutual respect. After eight and a half years of invoking supreme darkness with Triptykon onstage and in the studio, Norman has indicated his desire to explore different musical avenues in the future. It is a wish we fully understand, of course, but also one we bemoan on a personal level. We all wish Norman the very best for any and all of his future endeavours. He will forever remain one of us.

"Triptykon is thus now looking for a new drummer, before continuing work on the group's third album and returning to the world's stages. We are taking the required technical capabilities for granted, and we are completely open with regard to age and female and male applicants. Of decisive importance to us, however, are uniqueness, an unrestricted musical horizon, creativity, artistic courage, a stable and professional personality, and an appearance that reflects the group's music and unique historic background."

If you are Interested and think you have what it takes to be the new Triptykon drummer, you may contact the band through this e-mail address: triptykonswitzerland@gmx.ch.

The band emphasizes that this e-mail address will only respond to serious inquiries regarding the above mentioned topic.
