PostSubject: Tristania   Tue Nov 10, 2009 8:09 pm

Quote :
Tristania was formed at the end of 1996 by Morten Veland, Einar Moen and Kenneth Olsson from the remains of their previous band Uzi Suicide. Later, Anders H. Hidle and Vibeke Stene joined the band, along with bassist Rune Østerhus. In May 1997 their first EP, Tristania, was released. The same year Tristania released its first full length album, Widow's Weeds. A year later, following the Angina single, they recorded their second full length album, titled Beyond the Veil, which is thought by many fans to be not only the finest Tristania project but also the album which best represents the band's sound. The music is considered very atmospheric and full of deep melodic passion. Veland composed most of their works, wrote lyrics, played guitar and sang growling vocals. He was fired (according to his version of events) from the band after the release of Beyond the Veil due to what the remaining members refer to only as "musical and social differences".

In 2001 their third album, World of Glass was released. The absence of Veland was significant, and consequently this album was a departure from their previous sound. The growling vocals on this album were sung by Ronny Thorsen, a member of Trail of Tears, and the clean vocals were sung by Jan Kenneth Barkved and Østen Bergøy. Bergøy then joined the band as a permanent member, and so did Kjetil Ingebrethsen, who was in charge of singing death vocals.

The band's fourth album – Ashes (2005) – was the first of Tristania's albums on the SPV label after their contract with Napalm Records expired. The choirs are gone, as are the more challenging vocal parts reminiscent of World of Glass and Beyond the Veil. Hidle and Einar Moen add their vocals to certain tracks on the album. Two of the songs were actually written by the Tristania.com webmaster, Kjartan Hermansen ("Libre" and "Circus") while the song "The Wretched" is based on "Ascending: Descending" – a poem by Hermansen. Also on Ashes, the violins of Pete Johansen – which so often accompanied the previous Tristania albums – were replaced by the cello melodies of Hans Josef Groh. The album marked a lyrical and musical simplification of the band from the days of Morten Veland, more so than the first album without Veland, World of Glass.

The Ashes Tour in Europe (minus Einar Moen, who remained at home to work on more material for the band, but is still an active member) brought about another change for the band, the addition of a second guitarist – Svein Terje Solvang – who previously played with the band for touring purposes. His addition to the band as a permanent member in May 2005 marked the first time Tristania has had a two-guitarist team since Beyond the Veil.

In April 2006, Kjetil Ingebrethsen left Tristania to embark on a lower level musical career.

On February 27 2007, Vibeke Stene left the band to teach singing.

On October 19 2007, Italian singer Mariangela Demurtas (ex-Reel Fiction, Alight) was announced as the new female singer.

In May 2008, Svein Terje Solvang left the band.

On February 22 2009, Rune Østerhus left the band and Ole Vistnes is the new bassist

I totally adore Tristania .Their lyrics totally describe me the atmosphere is so sad but magical and the violin sounds just gives me chills .And Vibeke is one of the best vocalists of all the time Very Happy.Although I do love Mariangela aswell she gives so much energy to the band,but in a very diffrent direction.She is such a lovely and friendly person aswell
My favorite album is defintely World Of Glass,followed by Beyond The Veil and Widow's Weeds .I'm not very familar to their latest works Ashes and Illumination,but I'm planning to get them soon

I love Tristania. Both vocalists are wonderful and sweet people. I've spoke to Mary a few times and she's really sweet. Mary and Vibeke are wonderful vocalists, the energy, atmosphere and magic of the songs are just pure earcandy.
My favourite albums are World Of Glass and Illumination followed by Widow's Weeds and the Beyond The Veil. I'm not a big fan of Ashes Sad
I really can't wait for the new album and tour.

I love the first album as well! But that's also the only one I know so far. Razz
It's just amazing, with this gothic-doom sound, that's what I adore! Amazing atmosphere. The opening Evenfall simply gives me chills.
Soon will get to know the rest of their albums.

Angellore seems to be also my fave from W's W.Followed by December Elegy,Wasteland's Caress and Pale Enchantress

And Morten's lyrics are veryinteresting,I love the old-english language,but there are some words I have no idea what they actually mean

*Squee* My all-time favourite band! I love them so freaking much ^^ /fangirlism

Both Vibeke and Mary are great vocalists; they're just... completely different. I'm just thankful that the band didn't choose a poor man's Vibeke, since they'd get more criticism for that than choosing someone with a different vocal style like Mary.

My favourite album is Ashes, by far I love you World Of Glass and Widow's Weeds follow closely after though.

I was going to ask the same things .And sirene/siren means mermaid,right?I guess that because in romanian is 'sirenă' and that's how it translates.

Angellore:

Angellore revered at dusk
For thee I rose


Angellore come back at dusk
For you I rise

Angina:

Through scornful declarence and lumnious eyes
the shadows enveil with the glorious night
Trespassing the sunset like thou hast before
Entreating the daylight to rage nevermore
Angina striking Elysium
A frail remembrance glorificates the nightside-ascendance
veiled underneath thy funereal skies
The winds they may haunt me in bloodredest skies
The moon may bewed the strangest of light
The clasp of indifference the conquering tide
The sweeping of daylight...my vigour's decline
Thy Carrion Kind
Angina strikes Elysium...a frail remembrance
Carrion Kind
My Carrion Kind


Thy = The
Entreating = retreating
Bewed = gives way to
Bloodredest = Deep blood like red
Thou = you
Elysium = a place or condition of ideal happiness
or in Greek mythology the realm of the underworld
Angina = heart disease
Vigour = strong or great energy
Carrion = dead flesh or a corpse

Angellore = A fairytale or strange type of folklore
Lenore = Is a medieval Germanic name given to a woman of great beauty - History textbooks at my school rule!

Thanks, I will! Smile I'm just a bit surprised that angina is a heart disease. It's a polish word too and it's a kind of sore throat just hmm.. more advanced. Wink

Ok these definitions of Angina might be better.

A recurring pain or discomfort in the chest that happens when some part of the heart does not receive enough blood.

Angina Pectoris: A heart condition marked by paroxysms of chest pain due to reduced oxygen to the heart.

A severe, tightening pain in the chest, usually because of a lack of blood supply to the heart due to narrowing of the arteries.
