TRIPTYKON is looking for a drummer, and if you’ve got the chops, this could be your shot. In a release, the band stated that their current drummer, Norman Lonhard, will play two more upcoming shows before exiting: one in Spain and the other in Germany (August 10th and 12th, respectively). See portions of their statement below:
‘…these two festivals are significant to us for yet another, far more personal reason. These will be the final concerts we will play with our drummer, Norman Lonhard… 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.’
And for the good part,
‘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…’
