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.

“any fan of hard rock or heavy metal would be proud to have this album in his/her collection. The fullness of the sound on the album makes it hard to believe that this is just a three-piece outfit…Trigon seems to have picked out the best parts of bands they like, smashed them together, and crafted songs that just work on every level.” – Yell! Mag
“a vaguely punk rock, slightly angsty and at times beautifully chaotic rock album that will fit into virtually any collection.” – Canadian Beats
“There is a chaotic and personal magic on this album that moves your mind, body and soul from places of safety to places of danger in an instant. I’d liken it to being at a family BBQ just before WW3 breaks out -it’s all fun and games and Armageddon….“Fed Up” is a brilliant Rock album that exquisitely produced and bloody well executed. It’ll fit in with any and all Metal collections. Get yours now!” – 925 Rebellion
“The Great White North is known for snow, Molson beer, and hockey, eh. Now we might have to add another pretty good thing, Trigon.” – National Rock Review
