Melana Chasmata is the second full-length album by Swiss extreme metal band Triptykon, released through Prowling Death Records/Century Media Records on 14 April 2014 in Europe and on 15 April 2014 in North America. The title is in Greek (Μελανά Χάσματα) and, according to Fischer, it can be roughly translated as "black, deep - or, in a more literal translation, "chasms as ink".
Melana Chasmata is likewise chronicled by the minimalist and the complex. The album shows the motifs of Monotheist and Triptykon’s first record were inherited straightforwardly into both the song structures and the musical traits, as all walk upon common ground. The world-devouring guitar tone, fuzzy bass lines, explosive drum sound, riffs so heavy Atlas himself would find his knees buckling underneath their weight, Fischer’s intense barks voicing hymns of gloom and despair-familiar themes, them all. A lot of Triptykon’s musical depth is mapped by the end of the sixty-seven minute voyage. Melana Chasmata is a phenomenal piece of work. Its 67 minutes sound a lot but they just seem to slide by on top the subterranean lurch of the riffs on display here. The anger and bitterness is palpable with every world weary vocal croak, crunching chug, and eerie melody.
