Originally hailing from "The Great White North", this electro rock powerhouse is making waves with their cutting edge sound and style. Combining elements of Metal, Industrial and Progressive Rock, the band’s sound is smart, dark, precise, and aggressive. Their debut album “Second War” is easily comparable in detail, depth, and craftsmanship to rock masterpieces such as Tool’s “Lateralus” or Nine Inch Nails' “The Fragile.”
Tired of the lack of innovation and creativity in todays rock scene, the members of Triptaka formed the band in order to create music they wanted to hear. Together they bring a revitalizing energy to a style that has become predictable in recent years. In fact, Triptaka have already been remixed by some of the most well known artists within the industrial genre such as Rhys Fulber (Frontline Assembly/ Delerium), Steve White (KMFDM), Jim Davies and Kieron Pepper (Victory Pill / former Prodigy), and Pete Crossman (Victory Pill) - an impressive roster for an unsigned band.
Composed of front man Graeme Cornies, keyboardist James Chapple, and guitarist Dave Kelly, the group has been producing their brand of industrial rock for just under a decade, sculpting their tracks with precision and presenting intelligent art with commercial appeal. Since posting their music online they have received over 24,000 downloads from download.com and airplay from a variety of radio stations throughout the nation.
Triptaka creates timeless, relevant and intoxicating heavy music without pulling any punches. Something fresh, inspired by something forgotten.
