I think that there will be more pics...
Look at the "Ashes" or "World Of Glass" promo shoots... there were pictures of all the band members, so we must wait!

If you look at the file names of the new pictures on the Tristania site, you'll see most of them are named like '[title]27.jpg' or whatever - implying there's at least 26 more from that set alone. Judging by the collection put up so far overall, I'd say there's probably just under a hundred or so more pictures at least that they just haven't released yet. I'm willing to bet that some of the pictures didn't turn out so well so that'll be why they aren't put up yet, but surely there must be more good ones - including ones which have all the guys in (I like Vibeke as much as everyone else, but it'd be nice to see the whole band together ya'know...).

I've got my fingers crossed that sometime in the future their management will release the rest of the new promo photos, and hopefully at a better resolution than the current ones too.

I totally agree with you!!

I think the same, Tristania is the whole band, not only Vibeke.
The pictures still beautiful :)

Oh my god!

The new pics are perfect! Vibeke is Perfect! I love your new look.  :D

Well, as in all of the promotional pictures, they should have individual pictures of the other members too.  ;D

wah when I first saw the pics only one question popped up in my mind: Is Vibeke a singer or a slut  ::) those pics are sooooo amy lee/sluttish and they stressed Vibeke cause metal bands with female singers are popular... I was against old/new Tristania but I think I prefer old...
probably they hate photographs... ;)
Nah they're not important in pics... at least in comercial way..

I wonder if it has anything to do with the record label's pressure. (it seems that the usage of these promotional photos are strictly controlled by the record company) ::)  Esp. if you look at the Ashes US edition, the original cover is pretty plain, so they put Vibeke's photo on the cardboard sleeve, as if the record label is afraid that no one knows Tristania has a pretty female vocalist. One might ask Why??? Not that I don't like Vibeke (I adore her), but that's not the point here. I suppose this kind of things the band has little control over it.

It is sad... but in the end, if it helps Tristania to breakthrough the market and reach more new audience,( and thus attract more people to this kind of music) it isn't such a bad thing, as long as the music is still good. After all, we are here for the music, not for their pretty faces or their images.  I sure hope Tristania will keep experimenting, and releasing good records in the future, but without reasonable sales, that chance might be slim.


Sometimes it is naive to think musicians can make music without considering any commercial factor at all. Which band doesn't want to grow bigger? which musician doesn't want to make a living out of music and become a full time musician? I work full time and I draw at night, one day I hope to become a full time artist too but it's not that easy. Even if I don't want to do commerical art at all, I still have to think about marketing. How do I attract buyers and such. Even the least commerical artists would not hersitate to promote themselves using whatever means they can. If they don't, their galleries will or their work will hardly get any exposure.

I know you speak of the pictures, not Vibeke herself, but that's a pretty harsh word to use when talking about a woman I assume you respect as much as I do.

I thought the pictures were tasteful imo. They were commercial somewhat but I think they're doing that to attract new listeners.

I understand you Blackwing... but in my opinion the new promo pics are excellent!

I adore the old promo pics, but the new sound of Tristania is not the same for a 6 years ago. The new promo pics should show this new Tristania. 
 
Tristania is a band that is changing the sonority to each album, but it always maintains the essence, as well as in the pictures. ;)
