I was looking more for just the words in Latin, not so much the translation.
And Thank you, I'm glad to be here :)

I think "A Sequel of Decay" is one of their best songs, but I'm not that fond of the death vocals part. I understand it's a bridge to the chorus, but I find it a bit on the wrong place.

The songs overall atmosphere is gentle and melancholic and when you feel cozy some monster seems to jump the mic. Bye comfortable feeling!

What's your opinion on this?

No way. I had a tough time holding tears when they played A Sequel of Decay live. The song is flawless.

Once upon a time, I swore that I would never listen to a band who had the death growl. I didnt understand it, and literally could not understand it. It was the most ridiculous excuse for vocals I had ever heard. Coming from a lineage of Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden) and such singers as King Diamond, the "death growl" for ten years to me was an utter joke, perpetrated by a battalion of devil worshipping wannabes with no voice.

 I have since seen the light.

Much like the aforementioned King Diamond, the range of vocals from high to low, from victim to aggressor, from life to death, demonic to angelic, sanity to insanity,  the death growl conveys such contrasts very effectively.

So I must disagree. I personally think Morten's growling is sorely missed in "Ashes". The new growling to me sounds like Skinny Puppy or somthing. Probably not a good thing to put as the second post here, but hey thats how I feel.

But then again, I am saving "world of glass" for until Im done fully absorbing "widows weeds", so who knows, maybe WOG will change my mind.. doubt it tho

I think that Mortens growls wouldn't fit better to the new Tristania sound than Kjetils.
On WOG the growls were done by Ronny from Trail of Tears.

Heh, well actually Morten's growls "soaring" over the chior are my favourite bit in the song.

I think the growls are the best part of the song, actually. I think Tristania made a mistake adding in the clean vocals. In some songs they're good, but mostly I just don't think they sound right. I prefer the traditional Beauty and the Beast contrast with death vocals and female vocals. Regular male vocals don't sound that great with them.

"Beauty and the Beast contrast" means the contrast between a beautiful female voice (=beauty) and deep male growls (=beast). Thats just some kind of a synonym. ;)

A klischee in Gothic Metal, you could say, or just what Gothic Metal usually consists of.

not really. this Beauty and the Beast contrast has become some kind of subgenre to gothic metal. for me, gothic metal vocally consists of a deep baritone male voice, at times accompanied by frail female vocals, soprano or not.

I think the special of Gothic Metal is the melancholic,  in most times depressiv or sad feeling that's brings the music to the listener. Therefor it's not necessary what kind the singer are. It could be a clear male voice, a deep baritone voice, or the beauty-and-the-beast-thing or even just a womens voice. For example the band Cradle of Filth: The singer, has not a typical "gothic-voice", but the music has got a very special gothic atmosphere. So it's totally unimportant what kind the singer are.

It was my favorite song for some time... now I like them all...
It's a great song, great vocals, great instruments, great lyrics...
I also think that the death part breaks the song structure but I think that the contrast is what was seeked on this great song... (Beauty and the beast again...) Well all is contrast so the music is quite sad in parts as the lyrics are but then the rebellion in the death parts. A masterpiece of gothic metal in my opinion.

One good example of that is Paradise Lost... or Love like Blood.
