"We are truly, deeply delighted to be able to have been granted the opportunity to finish this unique project begun by   CELTIC FROST   so many years ago, and to finally share the completed recording with the world,"   Tom Gabriel Warrior   states about the release. "This album is the result of two years of passionate work, and it marks the conclusion of a musical idea first considered over three decades ago. Moreover, this   'Requiem'   also represents drummer   Hannes Grossmann 's first recording with   TRIPTYKON , and we are very proud to feature him in such an extraordinary context. It was an incredible honor to collaborate with the   Metropole Orkest , conductor   Jukka Iisakkila , guest vocalist   Safa Heraghi , and the esteemed   Roadburn   festival. In fact, there couldn't have been a better partner for the   'Requiem'   project than   Roadburn .
