MTV would make a great promotion for the band by playing it.
The danger is, that a lot of "kiddies" would listen to that and thin "wow, it's cool because it's on MTV, so that must be cool" and the band could become more Nightwish-like or Him-like, with a lot of fans who listens to the music just because it's in

Tristania with "Equilibrium" is not half as cool as Nightwish with "Nemo" and "WIHAA"...  B)  Hehe.

Well, the only reason Tristania COULD make major appearance is because of the front woman. Those are quite popular, aren't they? This is not Nu Metal, Pop or HipHop (or... Nightwish). Even it may be the catchiest of the whole album, this doesn't mean people will like it more... well, actually I can't find any reason why the 08/15 trend-listener would like THIS sound!^^

MTV is a difficult question... but, as most of us like Equilibrium, wouldn't it be nice to see it on TV, since it's infested with... bad music? Like I wrote, I can't imagine any "trendyness". Well, I can't even imagine it would be played during the day...

MTV plays sometimes bands with terrible sound and a  lot of people start to love those bands just because they are on MTV. And Tristania has much better sound, and it's not a "hard-listening" band, not a band like Morbid Angel or Sinister :)
And, here is a very stupid review made by Kerrang!

http://www.tristania.com/reviews/kerrang_jan_2005.jpg

Quotation "Ísten Berg÷y (Ville Valo style crooning) and Vibeke Stene (Amy Lee-esque operatics)". So we can cleary see where Tristania is placed to be by "Kerrang!" between Him and Evanescence both more or less pop bands. We now that it's just for promotion but an overage teenager "Kiddie" who doesn't know Tristania at all would believe that, he would listen to CD and think "Yeah, "Kerrang!" is right". And when he even sees the video on MTV, then he would be totaly convinced that the comparison to pop bands was true :)

This is more than dreadful. Some people just shouldn't be reviewing, if they aren't capable of writing something constructive.

As it consideres MTV - I don't like it, I don't watch it and I hope Tristania won't ever get there, unless they'd wish so (which, hopefully, they won't.)

It's quite nice that they zoomed on Vibeke, that's not the problem. The video somehow fits to the lyrics and Vibeke plays her role there. And Ísten is also presented by the director of the video very often.
But - the cheap "photoshop" effects wich distrot their faces are not  so nice. These effects could be left out and video would be look better :)

But it would have been better if they left vibekes face alone, not over zoom in every while, there was one time i though her eyes will pop out!
But over all a nice vedio, i gave it a rating of 5... Osten and Vibeke acted the vedio out nicely and the old man! He Rocked!

I think some parts were filmed through shards of glass, just like the photoshoot.
I thought ěsten mentioned something like that.

Let's see, Nuclear Blast puts it's focus on their two main bands: Dimmu Borgir & Nightwish (IMO the DB vid owns NW's 'nemo' on all sides) and therefor have a large budget for those bands. SPV haves a lot of well-known bands and Tristania is just one of them.

I wouldn't be suprised the Equilibrium video is made with less than 10% of NW's budget.

But, this is my guess.

I have to disagree a little bit concerning Nuclear Blast. OK, it seems to be true that Nightwish and Dimmu Borgir recieve all the best (Markus of NB is a big Dimmu Borgir fan). But Nevertheless, the other bands like Anthrax (e.g. video with Kenau Reaves), In Flames and Manowar get also big budget for their videos.
OK, these bands are also much more popular than Tristania.
But even smaller bands at Nuclear Blast get a good budget for their productions.

Concerning Tristania Video - surley the director of that Video got the most of the budget. I don't think that he would work "for nothing". He made videos for a real stars so he's not selling his skills cheap...

I really don't know, but to quote Kjartan (producer of the video): "I think our video was shot with the budget of Nightwish's catering for Nemo." Maybe he can

By the way, Manowar & Anthrax have big budgets on their own, I think NB only does their european sales. (Manowar's distribution is since recently being done by SPV, indeed: Tristania's label.)

Yes, I also think so, but I think that the most part of that "Nemo-catering budget" went to Ralf. By chosing an unknown or less known director for that video could have been saved a lot of money for the video itselfs. But don't get me wrong, it just my opinion based on the facts wich I know yet. Of course it can be wrong, and I don't want to tell what should have been done and what should not be... :)

And concerning Manower, yes, they changed to SPV not time ago and they were a short time at NB. Anthrax are so to say real metal stars so NB does everything to keep them on their lable :)
