So take this once in a lifetime chance to witness this unique opportunity to get a piece of real rock history at Time To Rock Festival 2023


Hellhammer existed for a mere two years, from May 1982 to May 1984. In light of their now mythically iconic status in the global metal scene, it is almost inconceivable that most of this music had never been performed live for almost four decades and thus the idea of Triumph Of Death was born.
The first steps towards the realization of Triumph Of Death, named after Hellhammer's most infamous song and intended to be a very respectful and authentic tribute to Hellhammer, were finally taken in 2014, and the band was officially founded in autumn of 2019. Triumph Of Death consists of individuals who not only love this music but truly understand it. The line-up emulates
Hellhammer's final incarnation of April/May 1984, when the group had added an additional guitarist. Since its inception, Triumph Of Death has played many highly acclaimed concerts across the globe.


Since their inception, Triptykon have often paid respect to their seminal, extreme metal predecessors, Celtic Frost by including their songs in their live set. This summer, for the first time ever, they will perform a full tribute set of early Celtic Frost songs in a very limited number of locations and will be headlining the Saturday night of Time To Rock, their only Scandinavian
appearance. Fans can expect to hear songs from the band's classic era, taken from the albums 'Morbid Tales' (1984), 'To Mega Therion' (1985), 'Into The Pandemonium' (1987) and beyond.

Tom Gabriel Warrior: "Performing such a unique trilogy of concerts comprising music from throughout my life as a musician is something I have never done before. It is an intriguing idea, and I am certain that it will also be a very emotional undertaking for me. I am deeply grateful to Time To Rock Festival for having reached out to me with this proposal and for the interest and support for my creative work. This is not something I would ever take for granted. We
all will make this a very special event."


Formed in May 2008 to further develop the darkness invoked by its immediate precursors, seminal black/extreme metal pioneers Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, Triptykon evolved from a concept for a Celtic Frost side project initiated by Tom Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom Gabriel Warrior), the group's singer, guitarist, and main songwriter. To date they have toured the globe extensively and have released the highly acclaimed albums 'Eparistera Daimones' (2010),
'Melana Chasmata' (2014) and 'Requiem' (2020). With a huge, dedicated fanbase residing in all corners of the globe, Triptykon defines harrowing darkness and heaviness and this performance from arguably the heaviest band in the world will be one that you will never forget.
