Survivor 3.0 !
« on: 17 September 2011, 16:02:47 »

Alright so here are the rules:
  • I will post an album (starting from WW) and you have to vote for 2 songs per feature. You can vote many times for one song but only if it's for different features (you have to say the feature that you're voting each time). Features are:
    > Best Lyrics (BL).
    > Best Atmosphere (BA).
    > Best Instrumentation (BI).
    > Best Vocal Performance (BV).
    > Best Riff (BR).
  • There will be 5 winners per album, one from each feature. If there's a draw in one feature, I will let you know and we will vote between those songs.
  • When we end I will post the 6 winners per feature (one from each album). Then we will vote for the best 2 songs in each feature.
  • Finaly, we will get the top 12 songs (from different features) and everyone will vote their favorite 4 songs there (with no features, just the ones you like the most).
  • At last we will get a top 12 songs from every song of Tristania.

So there will be 3 rounds:
1. First: 2 songs per feature in each album.
2. Second: 2 winners per feature.
3. Third: favourite 4 songs between the final winners.

I will close the rounds when I think we've got enough votes, probably they will last 2 days or 3. I know it's complicated so I'll start voting everytime and as give the lists I will be explaining ;)

Not easy to decide on lyrics since they are all pretty much the same, but I went with Pale Enchantress of being really cheesy and clever (''Tearful I walk with thee... through dusk, through winds of loss!''), and My Lost Lenore for having more variations than the others. Regarding atmospheres, I went with the darkness of Midwintertears and the bleakness of Wasteland's Caress. I also think these two have the best guitar work and general instrumentation. The vocals are orgasmic on Midwintertears if one likes the vocals of Morten :) Evenfall got in because of the choirs.

I won't write an essay everytime I vote (I think), but it's fun :)

^woah. I love the "Cruciami santa" and the "It ia mexami tuatio to luto, espiritus ut platus quamodo patio" but they weren't options for me in any feature ???
^Reumeren: yeah the lyrics are very similar and they complement each other most of the times so it's hard to decide. For me December Elegy's "Breed my night like tears of sorrow, Creep with life the days that morrow" is the best in WW. I've never thought about the atmosphere on Wasteland's Caress, I've always focused on the vocals but you're right :o

Okay so we have some winners and some draws.
Best Lyrics: My Lost Lenore.
Best Riff: Midwintertears.
Best Vocal Performance: Evenfall.

Best Instrumentation:
- Evenfall.
- Midwintertears.
(Vote for only one song here between these 2).

Best Atmosphere:
- Preludium...
- Evenfall.
- Midwintertears.
- Wasteland's Caress.
- ...Postludium.
- Cease to Exist.
(As there're six songs and currently we are only three voting vote for 2 songs here between these 6 songs).

Heh, I almost imagine Norway in late January, I'll take a picture one day, because it's a special atmosphere out in the forests during that time. Even the sky is weird.

Okay this one will be very hard because every song on BtV is a masterpiece by itself.

A Sequel of Decay has the 3 voices and it shows them on their greatest performance and then ...of Ruins and a Red Nightfall shows an awesome contrast between very well sung voices so that 2 songs are my choices for BV. Then on atmosphere's I think every song has its beautiful atmosphere but Saturnine and Heretique are the ones that I appreciate more their atmospheres over any other feature. The instrumentation on Beyond the Veil is just awesome; violins, piano, clean guitars and my beloved tubular bells so thats my choice together with Lethean River, which has captivating violins and pianos. My favorite riffs are on Angina (that song rocks) and Opus Relinque (that once was my favourite Tristania song). For lyrics I choose A Sequel of Decay (it's hard to identify yourself with this kind of lyrics but this song calls my attention) and Opus Relinque because of its sweet grotesque lyrics. :)

Best Lyrics
:
- A Sequel of Decay.
- Opus Relinque.

Best Atmosphere:
- Saturnine.
- Heretique.

Best Instrumentation:
- Beyond the Veil.
- Lethean River.

Best Vocal Performance:
- ...of Ruins and a Red Nightfall.
- A Sequel of Decay.

Best Riff:
- Angina.
- Opus Relinque.

Подобная ситуация, как в то время когда я в армии служил. Должен быть уволен в тот день когда находился на службе. Согласно устава я ещё не уволен, относительно человечность уволен в 1999 году. Не вероятная ситуация.
