I think it's a good song, I like it because is dinamic but has some melodical parts very nice!
What do you think about this song?

I like it very much, but ok, I like every song on BTV I have to say, even if some are weaker than others, everyone is actually special to me. Tophelion has a great choir and I like the "chorus" (not the choir, but the guitar part, Iif you know what I mean...the somngs have such a compleyx structure that its somtimes difficult to figure out a real chorus) vrey much, creates a "gloomy" atmosphere somehow

Aphelion is great! It was one of the songs I liked at once when I first listened to it. The choir is good and the melody is great, too.
Does anyone know what Aphelion means?
What are the lyrics of the choir?

in another thread someone explains that...Aphelion is the point furthest from the sun in the orbit of a planet or a comet... :)

In fact every single plantet of our solar system has an eliptical movement around the sun, which is in one of the focus? of the elipse. (An elipse has 2 focus and they are at the same distance from the center). The point which is nearer the sun is called Perihelion, and the farthest Aphelion. I think this comes from greek Helios=Sun and A as a negation so Aphelion could be something like No sun?.
In a song it is an original and clever way to say far from the sun, far from the light, or near darkness...

BTW forget about physics.... The song is great, I sincerelly like it from the first time I heared it, It is a bit shorter than other songs but it has a good beggining, god end and awesome contents!

IMO Aphelion is the heaviest song on BtV, very straightforward, very blackish, and addictive sound which makes it one of my faves among all Tristania songs

No, Aphelion is from greek Ap + Helios (helion is the accusative), but ap is not a negation, but means
"far from", infact the meaning is "far from the Sun"... :)

Aphelion has become one of my nicknames too^^


The first song of BTV I listened (on the official website^^), and I really love it. It rocks, it's dark, it's... GREAT!

It's my favourite song too. Its very atmospheric and powerfull. vibekes voice and mortens growls are here very strong and the choirs invite an in a another world... a world beyond the veils.
this song was one of the first tristania-songs, that i listened. I love this song since the first listening ("Beyond the Veil" was my first Tristania Album).

I love it, it's on my 200 song random playlist. Probably one of my favourite Tristania songs.

It's one of the most known tristania song.
I like it and I think it's a great live song, maybe a bit too repetitive in the chorus, but it's still very very good

BTV is the best album ever been recorded. There's no weak song on this album.
I'm a singer and I'm trying to set up a dark black/gothic metal band. The hardest thing of all is to find such an inspirational female singer as Vibeke undoubtedly is.
I love the way she sings....and looks, of course!
