i don't think mary is naive and lives in a fairy tale. any singer replacing such an icon as vibeke was for tristania has to realise that the fans will always prefer the old singer, especially in the beginning when she, the new one, hasn't had the time to prove her abilities. fortunately for her, most of the fans welcomed her with open arms and from what i've noticed, most of them like her. she hasn't had by far the amount of shit that anette from nw had, so i think she should be happy for now.

Definitely Vibeke. The voice and the image of that Mary doesn't match with Tristania's world at all...

Considering no album has been released with Mary and most previous songs have been written with Vibeke in mind, I find this topic a bit premature.

The best things i think they have are:
From Mary: Agressivness, elastic voice, more vocal repertory
From Vibeke: Wonderful scenic presence (e.g.: dancing), very professional voice, and a very interesting style.

for now i prefer Vibeke, but is not logic to judge without hearing first an album with Mary, i think the guys will make a very interesting and different work with Mary  ;)

Well, I prefere Tristania with Vibeke 'cause I love them from years and with Vibeke of course, BUT...I like Mary very much!
First I thought she was not made for this band, but now...I think she's the best singer which could Tristania has chosen. Her energy, how she's singing "Lotus"- that tell me how good she is ;)
And now I respect this band much better 'cause of their ambition. They could pick soprano singer up, but then they probably could be another metal band with operatic voice, but I mean they always want to carry something more with their music and lyrics than "gothicism" ;)

I think some people need to relax on this topic, of course people are going to be loyal for Vibeke but we havent even heard Mary on a Tristania cd yet, give it time :)

Yeah, to be honest I feel it a bit insulting to the band that people seem to be loyal to persons in the band instead of the collaborative effort. As far as I'm aware the creative forces are still in the band (except for Morten, who has Sirenia as an output now).

Just to be sure, this is my opinion.

I will always love Vibeke's voice, she is one of my favourite singers ever... But from what I've heard, Mary seems to be very talented too! So I like both ;).

Clear choice for Vibeke! ;D She is the best...
But i also like Mary's voice, she is a talented singer, she sounds not like Vibeke, she sounds very different, and that's good.
So i'm looking forward to the new songs with Mary! But Vibeke will always be the one and only... ::)

Both are very different, almost opposites of each other. Vibeke was a true diva, whose operatic voice was perfect for the older Tristania material which had choruses and Beauty and the Beast vocals.Very professional, stunning voice ( She is my favorite female metal singer, although I think that Floor Jansen of former After Forever is the greatest when it comes to vocal range, stage presence and versatility) ,a lot more composure and poise than Mary, she added dramatic intensity to the songs and she had a great scenic presence and discipline.

Mariangela shows her talent in the newer songs, I was a die-hard Vibekist ( for lack of a better term) till I heard the samples of Rubicon. Tristania is not dead, it evolved and Mary brings a new energy and change to Tristania. I came to appreciate her and to think that Tristania made the right choice and this come from me who wondered what was she doing in Tristania after I heard her singing Beyond the Veil. She has a powerful voice and an energetic personality and in Rubicon she is a talented singer in her own right. She is not Vibeke and never will, both women have very different voices,personalities and backgrounds, she is herself and brings a wind of change to Tristania. As the new Tristania, she deserves a chance

I prefer Vibeke, but only for her vocals appeal more to me and I loved Widow's Weeds more than the later albums, I will still listen to and support Tristania in its new direction and with Mariangela

This is a silly topic, but I guess people will always like to compare things. I have heard a few songs from the upcoming album, and also some samples, and I have to say, it doesn't suit Marys voice to sing the old Tristania songs, because we are used to hear them in a certain way, with a soprano-style. The songs were written with that in mind. But on the other hand, I do like the new songs from Rubicon much more than all the songs on WoG, Ashes and Illumination. I found those songs to be a bit boring, and Vibeke was always doing the same: singing pretty with little variation.

I guess Mary cant sing the songs on WW and BtV as well as Vibeke, but I dont think that Vibeke can sing the songs on Rubicon as well as Mary, because Vibekes voice doesnt have the power and flexibility to sing like that.  I think Year of the Rat would sound bloodless with Vibeke as the female vocalist. Vibekes vocal lines was 90% of the time predictable and not very interesting to listen to. Yes, it was pretty, but nothing more. I never felt anything listening to her singing.

Yes, Vibeke seemed like a diva. But thats not a good thing, I think. the die hard gothic fans will probably prefer the image of a diva though. From what I've read in interviews from the other bandmembers, Mary is contributing to songwriting and the creative process. I love the new elements in the songwriting on Rubicon, the twists and turns of the female vocal lines are suprising and quite mesmerising.

So all in all I do appreciate Vibekes contribution in the past. But I dont think Tristania would have survived in the long rund with the old and worn operatic/pretty singing-style. It is too predictable, and I think the band needed new inspiration to be able to push themselves forward and unleash their capabilities.

Vibeke is my hero, my idol, my Goddess, my everything! So I HAVE to vote for her, and to be honest I was closed off to Mary for this reason, but it was kind of that Promo video's fault for showing Mary murdering Sanguine Sky but then I heard Rubicon and actually found some good quality live videos of Waken 2009 on Youtube last night and Mary is actually pretty good.

No one will ever replace Vibeke in my heart and of course I would rather her in Tristania but I don't see that happening and the show must go on, so I have come to accept that and I am happy with Mary.

This seems to be very old, anyway I think Vibeke has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard! I think she's able to touch one's soul when she sings... funny how that sounds when I don't belive in souls anyway, Mary is not that bad but nothing special either and I'm not much into her style.

Yes, Vibeke has a very beautiful voice. That midsection in Midwintertears...

----

When it comes to comparing them, I think they sound too similar sometimes  ::)

Listen to her voice on Amnesia and the first verse on Illumination, if someone told that was Vibeke I would believe them. When she sings in that fast ''poppy'' modern style, she is usally backed by a male lead, and the verses are usually slow and soothing - like Vibeke was on Ashes for example.

We just don't get a single track with Mariangela singing the whole song alone with a poppy voice.
