Re-recording - Would you buy it?
« on: 23 October 2005, 11:25:54 »

Widow's Weeds is my favourite Tristania album, i've been thinking, how awesome would it be if they re-recorded th entire album. I'd anticipate this more than a new album. With the bands lineup changes, and overall progression since WW, it would be nice to hear what they sound like performing the songs today. Coupled with improved production quality my favourite album would become even better !

A good example is Epica, they released their debut album in 2003, In 04 they released an album which only had re-recordings of their orginal album songs, and they sounded far better. I don't even listen to the orginals any more.

Thoughts?

Honestly I'm no fan of this Idea. Widow's Weeds is one of my three favorit albums (maby even the No. 1), so its great as it is. Why to change or try to improve something that is already great?!
Exept of Angellore, Osten wouldn't have much to do on this album, don't you think? And to change the WW songs in a way that a clean male voice would fit... no, sorry, I wouldn't like that idea. Todays Tristania style is diffrent from WW anyway. The way I see it it could become only worse and it would be seen as a way just to make more money.
I'm looking forward to hear new songs from Tristania and I like to hear older tracks on concerts but making a re-release would be not good, at least for the image if the band. Re-Releases or Best ofs just show that a band has no new ideas.

So, what you're saying is todays Tristania is only capable of performing Angellore? And just because Morten left the band all their older work should be forgotten?
That's why I would like see it done. Without Morten it would have to sound different vocal wise. For better or worse I don't know but it would definately add a modern day Tristania feel to these older songs. Perhaps they could even do a WW/BTV best of with songs they feel most confortable re-producing and bundle it with a new album or DVD release to avoid people coming the conclusion they have no new ideas.

Read my post again a bit more clearly... I just said that Osten wouldn't have much to do on a re-release (songwriting is done and clean male vocals are only needed on Angellore). Of cause the rest of the band could play the old songs.

Kjetil and Morten sound different, ok, but not so different that it would make sense to record all older songs with him.
What differences, beside of Mortens voice replaced by Kjetils, do you expect anyway? Other riffs, changed lyrics or a bonus track?

As I said bafore, I WOULD buy it, but I have to agree with Omega on the money aspect: If they rereleased WW, it would seem as if the rcor company jsut wanted to make more money (->commercialsm, everyone knows the duscussions concerning Nightwish)

I highly doubt the band wants to re-record that album. Considering [Ashes]: why would they fall back on a style if they prefer their current style more?

If they liked WW that much themselves, then there wouldn't be a BtV, WoG or [Ashes]!

Just a bit of variety mainly, and vastly improved production quality, even the production quality on BTV is much better. Have you heard Midwintertears/Pale Enchantress on the Midwintertears EP? They are different recordings, with the same line up I believe, but sound quite different. I enjoy both versions, it's nice to have a change.

as Tjeerd, I'm pretty sure they never'll do anything like that... and I don't want them to do that... WW times are over...

Epica did that because the synths used  at sound labs weren't as good as they could have wished... tristania's WW's sounds perfectly in my opinion. Even more as a sing of respect to Morten I won't do it...
Of course if Tristania does realease this Re-recording i will buy it, what else would do a true fan?

I agree with Omega, that's one of my favourite and I think it's already very good. It has the so beautiful old Tristania sound (The new one is beautiful as well in a different way) and I would buy the new one anyway, but just because I would be curious to listen to it. There's nothing to change on WW IMO.  :wub:

too lazy to read all said so far but first of all i think there's absolutely no need for Tristania to rerecord WW, it's just perfect the way it is (that's why i fell in love with it at first listen); second, I believe Tristania would rather focus on writing and recording new material rather than going back (taking into account here the changes both in line-up and sound)
If that happens though (hypothetically) yes, i'll buy it :)
