Theatre of Tragedy




Norway - Active.

Description

Death/Doom, Gothic/Doom

One of the pioneers of symphonic doom/death, as well as one of the first bands to use the so-called 'Beauty and the Beast' style of vocals. Their first two albums are doom/death metal incorporating Old English lyrics, classical instrumentation and the soft soprano singing of Liv Kristine with somber riffs and Raymond's growls. On 'Aégis', the band abandoned their doom/death roots for a lighter and more accessible sound, which could be considered Gothic/doom metal. 'Musique' showed the band moving into symphonic goth rock field whereas 'Assembly' delved into industrial/electronica territory. The band made a somewhat return to their doom metal roots on their final two albums, with 'Storm' being Gothic/doom metal and 'Forever is the World' being a doom/death/goth album ultimately. The first two albums of Theatre of Tragedy are bound to be appreciated by fans of Draconian, Ashes You Leave, and Lycanthia.
