Tristitia : One with Darkness



Everybody who has heard Misanthrope, the mediocre band from Holy records owner Philippe, has wondered at least once in his life, how it is possible that the leading man from this band has such a good musical taste. Holy Records is one of the best underground labels around, giving shelter and support to such great bands as Septic Flesh, Elend, On Thorns I Lay and this amazing Tristitia. L.B. Galvez, the brain behind this band, is one of the few technically amazing guitar players within doom-metal.

'One with Darkness' is exactly what it pretends to be: a very dark, slow doom album. The excellent acoustic guitar intro 'Sorrow' immediately immerses the listener into the dark, mourning and depressive atmosphere of this album. Theatrical, low clean vocals alternated with frustrated screams, beautiful, melodic guitar work and dark, threatening keyboards set the sorrow drenched sound of this band.

The lyrics of the song 'One with Darkness' illustrate perfectly what one can expect from Tristitia: "Pray to Thy whom has failed/mighty Contact with the Dark One." How more doom can one get?
