Triptykon has released a video for “Tree Of Suffocating Souls,” the opening track from Melana Chasmata, released earlier this year.

Said singer and guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior on the new video:

“In producing this footage, we have elected to once again work in partnership with long-standing Triptykon collaborator and director, Philipp Hirsch, in Leipzig, Germany. As intensely minimalist as Triptykon’s approach and music are, as perfect and passionate was Philipp in creating images which combine such minimalism with the required darkness. The night during which most of these images were created was, for many reasons, a truly extraordinary night none of us shall ever forget.”

The band will be doing a European tour soon with At The Gates, Morbus Chron, and Code Orange, which should be interesting, given Fischer’s “contempt” for At The Gates.
