This debut album yet shows Theatre of Tragedy as a unique band, always breaking boundaries and destined to be a major influence for the now extremely popular wave of female-fronted metal bands.
This first collection of songs unveil slow, rough and heavy doom/death metal riffs with harsh male vocals mixed with romantic piano melodies and the angelic female voice of Liv Kristine.
By marrying opposites together, the norvegian band created not only a rich and contrasted music but also highly symbolic and evocative, reflecting the duality of life and human being (light and dark, good and evil, male and female...).
The album reaches an emotional peak with the beautiful song A Distance There Is. Stripped of all metal elements, this track is a long heartbreaking ballad showcasing only Liv's voice floating over a delicate piano and a few cello notes.
Theatrical and tragic but yet intimate and subtle, with a keen sense of melody and songwriting, Theatre of Tragedy not only revealed themselves as a highly inventive band but also a unique voice, one of the most beautiful ones in metal history, in the person of Liv Kristine.
