A few questions for any members of the band really, don't think there's anything here specific to one person (except one possibly).
1) As someone who got into Tristania just after Illumination came out, i'm quite a big fan of Osten's lyrics. Will he be contributing any lyrics/vocals for any future release?
2) What sort of themes and music (if any) influenced the band when writing Rubicon?
3) Do Tristania stick with one guitar tuning for most of their songs (and if so, which tuning do you use?) or does it alternate depending on the song? I know a few bands like to stick with one tuning (e.g. My Dying Bride seem to use C# standard on pretty much all their songs)
4) Are there any bands you'd like to go on tour with if anything was possible?
Hopefully these questions haven't been asked too many times before, thanks guys
