Triangulum, a progressive metal band with a musical palette consisting of great symphonies with heavy guitars, interspersed with subtile dynamics from all kinds of music genres for a accessible, renewing sound. In July 2017 Triangulum released their debut EP called ‘Tree of Life’. The EP takes you into a poetic story of life and death, focussed on self development. Triangulum’s musical compass is clear: accessible progressive metal, music with a meaning. The band from Amsterdam is formed by Wieger de Vries (vocals and guitars), Jelle Wester (keys), Maarten Grimm (bass) and Patrick Post (drums).
After 9 years the story has come to an end. Triangulum closes it's book. So many stories, so many adventures and memories. With a laugh, with a tear, Triangulum says goodbye and would like to thank all of you who contributed to this amazing trip.
"I am free. Remember who I was and will be. Follow me aside the rivers edge. Feel me, I’m free. It’s now time I'll find reality" - Tree of Life
My name is Wieger, co-founder of Triangulum. Music is my passion. You might even call it my addiction. When I was seven years old this passion has started with classical music, metal, rock, blues, but even traditional Irish music and later on also jazz. Since I was thirteen years old I have started to play guitar. I have been strongly influenced by guitar heroes such as John Petrucci (Dream Theater), Matt Schofield, Tommy Emmanuel and many more. Since 2013 I have started to sing as lead vocalist in Triangulum. To feel and see emotions of the fans with your own music, is one of the greatest things to experience. To see that you enjoy the show and feel the music. Besides my career in music, I am a legal expert, luthier, interested in human rights, sports, adventure and philosophy.
Greetings! I'm Jelle, the keyboard player and newest member of Triangulum. I joined this band in early 2017 and am having a great time. I started listening to progressive music when I was about 17, and started playing progressive rock a couple of years ago in my previous band called Parhelion. We are no longer together, but the love for playing this kind of music remained. I am most influenced by bands like Riverside, Haken, Leprous, Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson, Opeth and Dream Theater. Classical music has also been a big part of my youth, and still is a big part of my musical life. I am mostly in love with russian music from Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and my favorite composer Shostakovich (he is metal af). I have almost finished my Computer Science Master in Utrecht.
Hey guys! My name is Maarten Grimm. I am 23 years old and I am the bassplayer. I have been playing for 9 years now. My passion started at a very early age. My father listens to rock and sometimes metal. At first I didn't like it, but later on I started to like it. And one day I wanted to learn bass like my old man. I've played in all kinds of bands like a pop band, heavy metal band, gothic metal band etc. But my true passion is Progressive Rock/Metal. Three years ago I started to study in Eindhoven at the Metal Factory. That's a metal school for musicians. I have done a lot of things there. I graduated in june 2017. Later on I want to make a living out of music. Like playing in a band, sessionwork, teaching bass etc. Everything is good. As long I can play and work with music. And in 2015 I started dropping the bass in Triangulum. I always wanted to play in a Progressive metal band, so I took the opportunity and I don't have any regrets ever since.
Hi guys, I am Patrick, the drummer of Triangulum. My music career started at the age of 9. As a kid, I was always hitting with sticks on all kinds of materials. So it was time to make it real and take drum lessons. I joined a drumband for a few years where I developed my rudiments. Soon after I started playing as a drummer in an orchestra/bigband. During high school I met Wieger at the music lectures. We decided to start a band which will eventually become Triangulum. Collaboration is very powerful when it comes to music. So I really like to meet new people and jam along. Drum clinics are very inspirational for me and gives me the ability to see my heroes play. My influences are: Benny Greb, Neil Peart, Marco Minnemann, Mike Portnoy, Dave Weckl and many more. Besides drumming I like to shred on my bass guitar and learn about audio engineering. When I am not playing I go cycling or to the gym.
