“Triptik Empire are a strange, yet wonderful concoction of Hard Rock, Punk, Metal, ProgRock, Jazz and Swing. The Age Of Mistakes is the perfect debut for Triptik Empire” (Shar Bizzar)

“The Triptik Empire rocked the Sweeneys when they took to the stage from the very first chord struck (…) The crowd are captivated by this wonderful showing that is matched by the live ability of the band “ (U&I Webzine)


Based in Dublin the band is founded in 2012 by 4 foreign lads (Carl; Daniele; Giovanni and Nick) from France, Morocco and Sicily.

Using a progressive musical approach in their composition process, the band is mixing the raw energy of Heavy Rock’N Roll & Blues with elements of Swing, Punk, Metal and Drum&Bass to create their own particular sound.

The result on stage is a hyperenergetic and theatrical rock show which brings the band and any innocent onlookers together as one in an explosion of energy and an intense moment of fun and freedom. The aptitude of the members to connect with the public when playing live led the band to build up “a solid reputation in the business” (Dave Simpson Pure M Magazine).

After recording their first 4track demo in Westland Studio (Dublin) and performing a multitude of concerts across Ireland and Europe, the band launch their first EP “The Age of Mistakes” in 2015 which is crowdfunded by 100 fans and released with NuMu Productions.

“The Triptik Empire have put together a mighty metal monster of a record here (…) The Age of Mistakes is a force with which to be reckoned” (Dave Simpson Pure M Magazine)

“A great first offering from these lads” (Dave McMahon Street Ceol TV)
