Triptykon Frontman: Those Offended by Artwork ‘Sick and Perverted’

TriptykonTriptykon frontman Tom Gabriel Warrior has been friends with iconoclastic Swiss artist H.R. Giger ever since Giger gave him permission to use his painting ‘Satan I’ for the cover of Celtic Frost‘s 1985 album ‘To Mega Therion.’ So when Warrior decided to start a new band, he knew just where he wanted to turn for the cover art. And since he wanted Triptykon to jump out of the gates with a bang, not a whimper, he chose a painting that was sexually graphic; some have deemed it obscene.

“Frankly, I don’t give a toss,” Warrior told Noisecreep. “I have been attacked almost constantly for what I have been doing and releasing ever since Hellhammer‘s first demo in 1983. People and parties who approach art with such a constricted frame of mind are exactly those I have been fighting for all of my life.”

The cover of Triptykon’s debut, ‘Eparistera Daimones’ (‘To My Left, The Demons’) depicts alien creatures, one of whom is being penetrated by an electric phallus.

“I cannot see what is despicable [about] a ‘sexually graphic’ depiction,” Warrior snarled. “For millions of years, pretty much every living being on this planet has had sexual relations of some kind. Those who try to suppress this most natural of all procedures are the ones who are sick and perverted.”
