Yeah, really. Where is everybody else? I like Mary and all, but it's not her solo project.

I liked it. Its seems more of a concept-video than "We are the band Tristania"-video. I like that they dont do what all the other bands are doing: focusing a little bit on the drummer, a little bit on the guitarist, etc. Instead they are focusing on the content of the song, that Mariangela is telling. Year of the Rat is a song where Mariangela is the only one who sings, and she sings alot, except some whispering from Kjetil, therefore its not really suprising that shes in focus in this vid. Great atmosphere in the video!

I like it :D

It's not ''art'' by any stretch of the imagination, but it sort of fits the vibe of the song, and the animations are actually rendered rather good. Am I the only one thinking of Dementia when seeing Mariangela tied up and looking insane ???

No true - what about the chorus? The male vocals there (Kjetil and Ole both, I think) are mixed every bit as high as Mary's, so seeing only her sing those parts feels a bit strange. Still like the video, though!

I couldtn tell. I hear Mary, and if I concentrate I think I can hear some males singing vaugly. Marys voice is dominant in the chorus as far as my ears can tell.

I really liked the video!
I missed the rest of the band, too... But i was a concept-video, mary was telling a story. So it's ok. Great atmosphere in the video. But i have to say that this is not their best video, their best video is "Equilibrium" ;).

Me too.
 Do you remember "The Path of Decay" video, from Sirenia? Both Ailyn and Mary look insane, but in my opinion, Ailyn looks like she had a bad night... Mary looks SCARY AND MAD!!  :o  :P  ;D

Without any doubt, i prefer the new Tristania rather than the new Sirenia...

And i liked "Year of the Rat" video.  :D Not excelent, but good  :)

Yeah, I was hoping to at least see Kjetil in this video, not just Mary and the guy on the Korpiklaani covers.

I think the video is very well done the way it's. Yeah, I' like it more if the whole band appeared in it as well, but I like it anyway. The marionette scenes don't look very natural, Mary's movements I mean, dunno if the director could have used some effects to soften it a little bit. The rest of the video is very cool and that cat is creepy. lol

Mary looks like a gypsy to me. ;D

i don't like it so much, i find pretty insignificant... and, most importantly, i really, really hate when bands put only the singer in the video or on the cover of their record. sadly, a trend for tristania :P and sadlier, a trend for bands in this genre. (*)
that has nothing to do with mary or tristania, i'd say the same about every other band.

and please forgive me if that has already been discussed by you guys here but i'm excited to write back here since so much time and i'm running quite out of time now ;D

edit: (*) at least WHY not putting BOTH the singers?!? you know, mary's quite a hell of a hot fury and for us men it's surely good to see her but i'd find it right that also girls have their part looking at kjetil! ;D

This video is good, though it's not the best I've seen in my life  :)
and there is an error in the video on the mechanical theater, it's written "mécaniqe" instead of "mécanique"  :(

I don't know who paid for this (the band or the label), but I think it's Mary's solo-show because of budget issues.
