I agree on that Lethean River, but if it's everyones second or third fav. it's obvious it wouldn't get any votes.

I'm wondering why the sudden burst of votes on 'A Sequel of Decay' comes from.

Usually I'd name Angina, but now I chose Heretique, because it's a fucking great Song too, and not many people have voted for it yet...

Definately Aphelion, I think the best moments by tristania is in this song 5:30, when theres male vocals and then the choir joins in. But other ofcourse are as good as that.

it was a hard one between Opus Relinque, Aphelion and Angina...

but still, my contribution went to Opus Relinque... powerful, intense and it stikes me right in my mind.... the last part with the choir is absolutely amazing... and I can really find myself in the lryrics... and the contrast between growls/opera vocals are so outstanding, very emphasised...

yes, opus relinque is a good (and strange) song... But I still don't know its meaning and why is it called "Dracula's soundtrack"

Has to be the title track, although Opus Relinque isn't far behind!

This is really tough!!!!!

I really like Aphelion but the track I guess emotionally that hits the nerve is A Sequel of Decay - but there is several outstanding tracks on the album!

It was difficult choice, but finally I chose Aphelion.

Very hard decision. Yet I voted for 'A Sequel of Decay'. For one thing it was the first Tristania song that I ever heard... Any other reason is too complex for me to explain. Nonetheless, this is just a great song, but just above many others from Tristania. Thanks to Osten of course...

The best track is definitely 'Angina'. That's a brilliant piece of music and something that never grows old.

My vote went for A Sequel Of Decay. Vibeke's amazing classical voice intro, and all the built up tension is released when the guitars kick in and Pete's violin cries over that soundscape. I don't know if a song can start any better. It is a masterpiece.
Still it was a tough choice. Lethean River is a close runner-up. The voice sample at the beginning, was that taken from the End of Days soundtrack?
I remember watching the movie and this very same sample occured several times throughout the film.

Tell me about it. This would probably be my second favourite track on the album. Brilliant stuff. It's a great album from start to finish!
