Great interview! I noticed something in this question:
What do you think about Tristania future?
Vibeke: [...] How long it will last or how big we can grow is impossible to know. But I hope that one day I'll be able to make a living out of it.
If they never really made a solid living out of Tristania (which is how I interpret this) and they still keep creating great music, it just shows their integrity and love for music they must have. They don't do it to become rich superstars, but because they like what they do - and they do it bloody well too.
