It's a great song, like all songs on Beyond The Veil.

What are your words for this song? I think it's the best all times song. It has all: great extreme vocals, wonderful soprano's part and some verses by Osten. The lyrics are great too, and the music is extremely atmospheric and depressive. The BEST. So...?

it's really a cool song!!

Yes. :)

"Of Ruins..." has always been one my favourite Tristania songs of all time. Very powerful and melodic.

As I've said elsewhere, I love the "wall of sound" approach of this song, with electronic noises woven in after the the 3 minute mark, and the moment where all 4 types of vocals are following each other (clean male - clean female - grunt - scream). The interplay between ุsten, Vibeke, Morten and Anders is mesmerizing.
