Vibeke is finally back in the music scene!
« on: 08 June 2013, 02:37:52 »

“Silence broken...
The time has come to break the silence and get back into the storm! First of all I wish to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude towards the people who have been asking for my return! An album is on its way, but first I will be participating in Asgeir Mickelson's extreme metal-project God Of Atheists, together with - amongst others - Ihsahn, ICS Vortex and Trym. Exciting times ahead! - and feel free to join me on my journey on my official facebook page at www.facebook.com/vibekesteneofficial

Yours,
Vibeke”

Guess the subject of possible return to Tristania will now be whipped up more than once. But this looks like a nice project - I liked Asgeir in Borknagar (the latter is one of my favourite bands, though I probably need to dust it off more. Ack! So many good music around, can't keep trace of everyone equally!)

Like the name 'God of Atheists' but I'll wait to see how good they are as a BAND before I feel too optimistic about it.

Anyway, nice to have Vibeke back into music. I guess she'll do loads of guest vocalist contributions to bands :D

Still to early to tell but you can listen to a really short unfinished clip of the satr of a song here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmEiMvmuZbs
Doesn't matter how good they are or not, at least for me anyway, I'd go crazy over anything Vibeke related :P
I'm actually more excited about the solo album, but we will just have to wait an see how things develop from here on out.
But having her back in the music scene again is the best news I've ever heard.

To me this is a joke (Yep, a very cruel joke, haha), not the band (whoa, Ihsahn and Lars!) But the solo album and the "Official" FB profile....

Thought the same, but who'd be so cruel?! :P

Liked that "demo" though, sounds a bit like The Sins of Thy Beloved hehe ;)

I dropped my jaws to the floor when I got the news. Seriously, her departure was so quick and bitter, I simply imagined she would never return to metal music scene or any to any that has related fan base.

But she did and oh what joy it is! And it combination with such great and exceptional musicians.... Keeping fingers crossed from something outstanding. Because I am in desperate need for an outstanding metal release.

Hell yea, welcome back Vibs!  :D

The official account of God of Atheist was the one who directed to her page, why would her band mates who are in contact with her direct us to a fake account?

By the way have you guys noticed she liked Tristania’s and Sirenia’s official accounts? Hope they all are in good terms. It would be great for both Tristania and Vibeke if they support each other’s projects; many narrow minded people would give a try to the “New” Tristania while Tristania fans would flock to Vibeke’s new facebook profile if they both share each other’s project on their official accounts and show everything is ok between them.

Vibeke's sister posted this:
"Well, i am Her sister...this is not fake! She is working with something, and you should be patience!"

RayDV: Uhhm.... exposed in that way is very convincing :) 

I hope something great with her contritution, not a backing vocal like in WW, I mean, her voice is great in that mood but there was a lot of evolution since that, for example on Ashes, she's great with no need of operatic style, so diverse and sexy!

I'm very curious about her solo project. I mean, I already know God Of Atheists will be amazing, and one can guess it will have a progressive metal base, but what kind of music will Vibeke make on her own? Her voice is great, but she wasn't a big creative force in Tristania, plus she sang on a poppy mellow song.

Anneke van Giersbergen, Tarja Turunen and Liv Kristine weren't composing that much with their old bands too and... well, their solo careers are not impressive but they've made some pretty good songs and we still get to listen to them sing ;)

Definitely :D

I read in a interview (now that ToT are re-releasing their first albums) that Liv did some work in composing songs

Quote
“…’a Distance there is…’ is a song that I think everybody in the band has a different relationship to. We were in Sweden at Dan Swanö´s studio, spending our Christmas alone in Sweden recording the debut. Lorentz and Liv had some ideas and ended up recording the song.

Also Anneke wrote almost all the lyrics during her time in The Gathering, and some guitars

And Tarja, well, Tarja is beautiful :D

As far as I know Liv only wrote important parts for ...a Distance There Is..., but then not that much for other albums. Lorenz was the main songwriter on the 3 first ones and then Raymond on Musique and Assembly.

Anneke wrote Strange Machines, Leaves, Shrink, My Electricity, You Learn About It, Locked Away and a few more; none of them being highlights of The Gathering.

And Tarja was the laziest of them all, only collaborating with a verse on The Siren and ideas for The Phantom of the Opera.

I can't imagine Vibeke doing something out of whatever-wave with some rock. Her solo project would maybe be something very "Norse", something more "alternative". I'd like hearing her in a Galás style, would be great.
