We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Trigon’s new song “Nightmare” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Fed Up, which is scheduled to be released on March 24, 2017 and will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and all major online retailers.
The band comments on the song:
“One night while we were having practice, Gus the guitarist came up with this crazy riff that actually sounded like a nightmare. If you were alive in the 80s, there was this one crazy movie that was terrifying everyone… that’s right Nightmare on Elm Street. So Trigon dedicated this song to the legend Freddy Krueger and his debauchery on Elm Street. Listen carefully as we perform a short bio about Frederick Charles Krueger! Sweet dreams!”
There is something special and magical about the three-piece band (often called a power trio, and there is indeed, special power in three). You need only think of such bands as Venom, Cream, Whiplash, Taste, Motorhead, Bathory and Celtic Frost for proof. In a power trio there is a purity of essence, the band’s vision honed to razor-like intensity.
Trigon are inspired by artists as diverse as Volbeat, Crobot, David Wilcox, System of a Down, Nirvana, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and Slayer, yet already they have forged their own unique sound.
Bassist and vocalist Emanuel Viau explains the origin of Trigon’s unique name: “We wanted something catchy that would be easy to remember. It had to represent the number 3 because we are a three-piece band. So to us, Trigon means 3 in 1 like a triangle and that explains our logo; the Trigon beast with 6 eyes.”
Bassist and vocalist Emanuel Viau sums up Trigon’s sound as: “Rock and roll ain’t dead. Lemmy would be proud!”
He says that their upcoming album Fed Up is about “living in the millennium, obstacles, day-to-day challenges, high and low points of life, religion, the corrupt world we live in, and being brainwashed by our leaders.”
Emanuel says the album will grow on fans with its “crafty riffs, good lyrics and good beats. We wanted to make them feel like they are the ones who wrote the songs!”
Emanuel sums up Trigon’s intentions: “Fans can expect a lot more out of Trigon. We are just getting started. The dedication to our fans is always there…they are number 1 to us! We are a positive band hoping to reach out to people and give them songs they can relate to. At our live shows they can expect maximum energy and excitement. We aim to make the people at the back come to the front!”
