ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Amazing For A Debut Effort
How can I describe this CD? How about a musical onslaught. Second War wears you out but leaves you wanting more.

Sonically relentless and darkly foreboding begin to describe the Tripkata experience. For a debut release, the band demonstrates uncompromising attitude and vision. It's a given that if you dig on A Perfect Circle or Nine Inch Nails you will certainly love this music. But, it is arguably just as good and two tracks that really stand out in my mind are "Lost & Leading" and "Tamed", the latter featuring amazing segue and the1-2 assault of lead singer Graeme Cornies and guitarist Dave Kelly. This is a seriously massive attack that should be in heavy rotation on every prog rock radio station. "Suspended" kicks off the disc at a blistering pace with big, piercing guitar riffs and the rest of the disc never lets up.

As I said, it wears you out but leaves you wanting so much more.

Tripkata is relentless and at the same time addicting, and gets better with each play. This is a fascinating group that belongs at Lollapalooza banging with the bigger bands. Creative and explosive, relevant and precise...............this effort is brutally intense and overwhelmingly explosive. You won't stop listening. In a genre that has become predictable and stagnant, Tripkata injects life and creativity. This disc is a must-have.
