Ottawa’s TRIGON Posts New Single “Rock It”
Inspired by artists as diverse as Volbeat, Crobot, David Wilcox, System of A Down, Nirvana, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and Slayer, yet forging their own unique sound, Ottawa, ON’s TRIGON have a new single to share with fans to follow last year’s debut album “Fed Up”. The new single entitled “Rock It” is hooky rock n’ roll to kick off 2018. The track was mixed and mastered by Glen Robinson (Gwar, Voivod).
The band comments:
“When we first began, we were a cover band and we always loved to take old songs and twist them up making them more into a rock version. We tried doing that with ‘I’m So Excited’ by The Pointer Sisters but turned out to be a challenge. After playing around with it over a couple of jam sessions, it really didn’t get us ‘Excited’, but it did inspire us to write a new song ‘Rock It’. So Gus our amazing guitarist came up with this crazy riff like he always does and then everything came into play. Oh yeah!”

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. For 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!’
TRIGON’s debut album ‘Fed Up’ was released on March 24, 2017 and available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and all major online retailers.
