Celtic folk music, powerfully played heavy metal, kilts, bagpipes, expressive hymns and an invitation to sing along with each melody..." One might not expect this description to adjust to an Argentinian band but it can indeed be so, as Triddana has been plentifully demonstrating during the last years.
They were formed in 2011, their name derived from the Irish word "Troideanna", which means "fights" or "battles". Their sold out performances in their home country soon earned them a reputation as a demolishing and visually attractive live act, and by the time their first full-length album Ripe for Rebellion came to light, in late 2012, the band had already drawn the attention of audiences and media around the world.
Their second full-length album, The Power & the Will (2015), released worldwide through the German label PowerProg, paved the way for the band's first shows in European soil in 2016. An overwhelming response from the scene -after their first appearances in festivals in Germany and Spain - only called the band to keep returning year after year since then, participating in festivals like Dong Open Air and M.I.S.E. Open Air, and sharing the billing with legendary acts such as Korpiklaani, Eluveitie, Tankard and Skid Row.
The band complete their successful streak of albums with Twelve Acoustic Pieces (2017), a collection of acoustic versions of their own songs, and Rising from Within (2018), both of which were promoted during the tours that followed their releases. Alternating shows in Europe and their home country, the continuous activity of Triddana resonated, with a promising prospect that earned them the title of "Heroes of Tomorrow” by the German edition of the Metal Hammer Magazine.
The announcement of Triddana’s participation at the Summer Breeze Open Air festival became the highlight of the band’s plans for 2020, along with other vibrant events in their agenda and their planned releases which include their next official video and music which will form part of their next album.
