Reveling With the Warrior

Someone of overwhelming awesomeness has made it possible for us to experience the new Triptykon before our pre-ordered copies make their way into our desirous hands, and it's made this Friday a special day for both Seth and myself. Eparistera Daimones slays for a number of reasons, but the main one might be that it plays like a continuation of Monotheist (already a BBB favorite), aged in a cask of awesomeness until it reaches a new level of maturity. To put it in Scotch terms, if Monotheist were the 10-year, Eparistera Daimones would be the 18-year, full of new flavors that were only hints on the older album. Go on: listen to a few of the tracks on their MySpace page, curse the metal gods for sticking you with a player that crushes so much of the juice out of the music, and then go order the real thing so you can get the full experience. I'll be preparing myself for the tour, looking forward to the day when I can chant, "lie upon lie mankind shall die" with a crowd of like-minded metal heads.
