Well, well, well…Tristania's Widow's Weeds. It is about time I wrote a review for one of my beloved albums. So, I will try to sum up the majesty of this album in these lines.

Widow's Weeds is the first full-length of Tristania. The band was formed two years earlier by Einar Moen-keys, Keneth Olsson-drums and Morten Veland-guitars/vocals. Morten was the main figure behind Tristania back then. After a self-titled EP in 1997 that got rave reviews around Europe they signed a record deal with Napalm records and started preparing this masterpiece.

After the release of their self-titled EP, Tristania became a part of a rising label at that time (1998), Napalm Records. They started working on their long-awaited debut album since "Tristania" had received good critics from the music press. And, yes, during 1998, the debut album of Tristania, "Widow's Weeds," saw the light of day and became one of those sparkling jewels in the world of gothic metal, one of those albums that always shines for their unique feeling and beauty!

One of THE gothic albums in existence. The best of the "beauty and the beast" type.

Exactly, hence why it's at #1 in my "Beauty and the Beast" list.

This album is brilliant. It's a perfect mix between the grit and doominess of Velvet Darkness They Fear and the angelic beauty of Aegis. Probably on par quality-wise as well.

Erm... You do realize Widow's Weeds is an album by Tristania and that Velvet Darkness They Fear and Aégis came from Theatre of Tragedy? Both bands sure did make it big at the same time more or less and there are certain similarities, but there is a huge difference between Tristania's and TOT's style.
