Triptykon: Tom G. Warrior Approves of Century Media’s New Melana Chasmata Box Set
Whatever it was about Century Media’s limited edition box set release of Triptykon’s Melana Chasmata that Tom G. Warrior didn’t like, it’s apparently been fixed. Says Mr. Warrior via Facebook:
“Some time ago, I voiced my personal disapproval regarding the original concept for the planned Triptykon Melana Chasmata box set as scheduled for release by our licensing partner, Century Media Records.
“It is to Century Media Records’ credit that they listened and subsequently approached me to address my misgivings and create a box set that represents the group’s ideas and intentions far more comprehensively. I am grateful for such an open and creative collaboration, and I deeply respect Century Media Records for sparing neither effort nor expenditure to please Triptykon and the band’s audience.
“I wish record labels would have acted like this in the 1980s.”
I’m glad that’s been cleared up! Melana Chasmata is surely one of the best metal albums of 2014, and it would have been bummer if this cloud had been hanging over its release.
Melana Chasmata comes out April 15.
