yeah, sorry, i just love this song.  I rarely listen to the other songs.  I wish there will be an album devoted to the music style and vocal and lyrical style of DECEMBER ELEGY.  

peace.. :0)

Hi welcome! :)

In my opinion most of the Tristania works have the style of December Elegy...but maybe i could make a mistake!

Really? To me, the song's not really special, one of the weaker ones of Widow's Weeds.

Beyond the Veil (the whole album) is almost perfect IMO

well december elegy is cool...but i don't think that any band could create a perfect album/song...well, some fan always says that his favorite song is perfect, okay... ah well forget what i wrote...but december elegy isn't anything special compared to the other songs on WW...

I totally agree...

I think it's apity if one reduces a band to one certain song.
(ok, maybe there are bands who REALLY only have one good song ;))

I actually like the buzzy guitars; it gives it an ''underground'' feeling I get when I listen to other norwegian bands at that time, but yeah: a grand piano, string quartet (+ Pete Johansen again) would make it perfect.

Definitely a highlight on Widow's Weeds
It's so heartbreaking and beautiful. I think I can credit it as my second favorite song on Widow's Weeds after Angellore
It makes me cry every time!
