Theatre of Tragedy




Norway - Active.

Description

Gothic/Doom

One of the pioneers of gothic metal, as well as one of the first doom bands to use 'Beauty and the Beast' style vocals (male grunts and operatic female vocals). Their first two albums are very doom/death oriented, incorporating Old English lyrics, symphonies, pianos, and the soft soprano singing of Liv Kristine into somber riffs and deep growls. On 'Aégis', the band abandons their doom roots for a lighter and more accessible sound, which could be considered a heavier style of classic gothic rock. 'Musique' and 'Assembly' delves into industrial/electronica territory, but the band makes a return to gothic metal on their final two albums ('Storm' and 'Forever is the World'). The first two albums of Theatre of Tragedy are bound to be appreciated by fans of Draconian, Ashes You Leave, and Lycanthia.
