I'D rather buy the Quites Single...such a beautiful cover  :wub:
It will be released in two versions, and on one vesrion you can find the previously unreleased track "Linger". It's a lovely ballad and I'm curious what the studi version will be like.

@lifetime sluember: Oh, I forget to complete my post..I wanted to say : although TPA has a few deficiences, I love it. I could be a bit harder, and also Simone's singing is not so mature somtimes.

mh...i don't like Epica a lot...dunno why...maybe i'm a little bit tired of all those bands with female voice, symphonic, opera and so on...except Tristania of course (even if they are another kind of genre)... :P

I think the same somehow... Simon Simons' singing is not so balanced. and it coulkd be a little heavier- and CTO, too. :P

Poppy?...


Simon Simons said that TPA's vocals were a little more pop...


I don't think they are pop but CTO is not poppy!

I don't really agree, it could be heavier and without too much kitschy decorations, if you understand what I mean
But I think if you listen to Tristania you will know it ;)

yeah totally but i think every band sometime uses kitschy things for their songs and not every band wnats to play as haevy as they can. i mean okay every band could be very heavy, because then it would end in total noise...and even i can make that even if i never took guitar lessons or so.... only flute....... and of course it could be heavier...ashes could be heavier as well... it can always be heavier!!! :P

I didn't mean that I want CtO to be the heaviest album ever (its' Gothic Metal and no Hard Rock ;)) and not even as hard as for example After Forever's Invisible Circles, but CtO COULD definitely be a bit heavier without being total noise - there are a lot of other Gothic metal bands who proved this, especially Tristania: never kitschy, never poppy, but still very touching (at least the old albums)

Don't get me wrong, daisy, I like CtO, but I just would like to have a bit more guitars and less kitsch.

Well, If Epica was a heavier band they would be my 2nd favourite group....

Yeah, it needs some guitars for power, (Poooor "the score", poooor...) and also a heavy album is not noise!!! It could be as heavy as "Once"- Nightwish, or as IC- after Forever... But think of "World of Glass"- Tristania- ....?

no i don't get you wrong, i know what you mean...
but invisble circles isn't that hard...maybe 'Beautiful emptiness', but the rest is normal heavy...

and somehow you have to be right, cause since they released cto and now score, they are always described  as gothic ROCK... in the times of PA and WWTYWU they always were gothc MEtal in all the magazines and in the internet...

I like this band... One of my favourites..

personally, ThePhantomAgony is better than CTO but they're all excelent... Never heard of the score...but if it has not guitars.. bye,bye..
Waiting for their 3d album...

And often the bands themselves drop the "gothic" part.
