I dislike green colour, and dislike photographys of band members on covers, so I dislike the Rubicon cover. ;P

But music is great.! :D Fantastisk sounds-like-black-metal verses and polimelodical refrain. :D

And Protection will be very nice ballad. :)

I have nothing against the cover, to be frank. It's just not what i was expecting. :P I think Ashes cover will remain my favourity cover of Tristania this time.

But I LOVED the songs! Protection has a very nice vocal line an the instrumental parts are very nice. Btw, whose is that clear male voice in Magical Fix? Is that Kjetil's?  ???

Still not impressed. Oh well. There's still some semblance of excitement for the next album, though. Tristania hasn't disappointed me yet and I doubt they would start now.

I really like the teaser! It makes me even more excited for the album, and those grunts in Magical Fix...  :o

I really like the new taster!
The cover is not what i expected, and i don't like it when band members are on album-covers... But anyway the music counts.
And the music is great! Especially the growls in "Magical Fix"! Btw, i think it's Kjetil who sings clean in this song...

But i thought das Osten sings on the new album, and Kjetil only sings as a guest vocalist? ??? So, there are no Vocals of Osten on the new album?

I really like Magical Fix; I was not expecting that sound. Hopefully, there's more songs with growls and such on the album. The cover art is as boring and uninspired as the last one, unfortunately. World Of Glass also had Vibeke on the cover, but at least it was representative of the album with the glass effect.

The growled part in Magical Fix KICKS FU**ING ASS, but the clean vocals sound way too Dimmu Borgir-like (or power metal-ish, whatever) for my taste. I loved Kjetil's singing in Trail Of Tears. What happened to his voice???

The cover aint that bad. Its nice to have Mariangela on the cover, since shes the new frontwoman. But still, I fint it silly to show only women on the covers. In Tristanias career, theres been 3 albums with women on the cover, oh, and then you have the BtV-cover with women covered in veils.. I generally dislike this objectification of women and I have to say Vibeke couldnt be so very smart when she decided to go along on the cover choices of WoG and Illumination. I dont think that many intelligent women in modern society would say yes to being objectified like that, especially since the band consists of mostly men. On Mariangelas intelligens I have nothing to comment since she has a masters degree  ;) But still I think Mary should have stood up and opposed the idea of "women on the cover = maybe we'll sell some more records". Oh well, I guess I could let it pass as being an introduction to Mary. At least the cover shows a cool-looking Mary with attitude, and not just a woman staring lamely at you, like the covers with Vibeke.

Osten sings on Rubicon, but not in every song. For example in Exile. But we didn't hear his voic in teaser yet.

And I'm afraid that Kjetil have more vocal parts than Osten....

Shivers of pleasure down my spine! I heard Protection live in Haugesund, but couldn't really remember it amongst all the other new songs they assaulted me with. I like it a lot, it's really atmospheric with an almost gothicy blue-tinted edge. Lovely!

And Magical Fix - Absolutely wonderful!! I was very curious to hear what Anders vocals would sound like in a studio situation. He's done a great job live (he really blew me away singing The Shining Path at Inferno in Oslo a couple of years back), but as I've found him to be more of a screamer than a growler, I worried a bit that I would yearn for Morten's voice of old (the only thing I really miss from that period though). But the recording brings forth Anders with a very rich, dark quality, and nice overlays á là Trail of Tears. Absolutely no complaints from me!

And the clean vocals part, yummy as well! I agree with Funeralord that it resembles Vortex' parts in Dimmu Borgir, but for me that's a huge compliment. Beautiful harmonies with Mariangela as well, and still somehow fits into the song as a whole.

Looking forward to hear Østens voice in the context of the new Tristania. Have a feeling that he will come even more to his right there.

The end of August cannot come soon enough!
