When Theatre Of Tragedy emerged from the blackened realms of Norway, they offered a refreshing sound that was nowhere near what that region had (and still is, in some aspects) long been associated with. Their theatrical, dramatic Gothic Metal proved that there was more in Norway than corpsepaint and church burnings. Since then, there have emerged bands like Tristania, Trial Of Tears and Myriads, using Theatre Of Tragedy's basic foundation and created their own unique musical visions around it, forming a scene that has more to do with current Norwegian metal than "true black metal".

It's a pity this album was the last by this band. I think they had the potential to become bigger than Tristania and Trail Of Tears...

If you ask me don't even compare them with those two, this band was simply the embodiment of a refined classic symphonic gothic without all those lameness most of the bands have in this genre ( well actually old Tristania was unique)
