Last Curtain Call
(AFM Records - 2011)
After 17 years in the business Norwegian gothic metal outfit Theatre Of Tragedy call it quits. The end this chapter with a concert in their home town Stavanger which they recorded for a double CD and DVD incl. one CD. I only have the tracks from the double CD at hand, so I can't tell you anything about the DVD, just that if it comes with only one CD, there will be some tracks missing... To get a better idea about the DVD watch the DVD trailer here:
So let's talk about the live album! The 16 tracks covering pretty well their entire career, but I miss a bit a real live atmosphere... If Nell Sigland wouldn't talk a little to the fans - usually just a 'tusen takk' - it would be like a studio album with applause taking up the 2 second pause between the songs. A die-hard fan might hear differences between the originals and the live recording - beside that you get Nell singing Liv Kristine's songs.
Personally I would prefer the DVD/CD package, but at the end of the day you have to make up your mind what to buy.
Forever Is The World
(AFM Records - 2009)
Theatre Of Tragedy started in the early 90's from Norway and presented an interesting mix of death / doom and gothic with male and female vocals. In the early years singer Raymond Rohonyi was joined by Liv Kristin Espenaes. The band released several albums and made themselves known in the dark and gothic metal scene. They started into the new millennium with a more electro / industrial sound, something not everybody welcomed. Now they seem to turn back and re-discover their early sound.
