Tristania - Announce New Album Title, Cover And Date


Gothic metallers Tristania have announced that their 7th album is entitled Darkest White. The record will be released via Napalm Records on May 31st and the artwork is already available for your viewing pleasure below.

Darkest White is produced and mixed by Christer André Cederberg, while the artwork was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sodom, Hatebreed). You can also listen to the first album trailer previously released by the band below.




Ole Vistnes comments: "With Darkest White we have dug deeper, searched wider and reached higher to create the most musically challenging and emotionally involving album we possibly could. Like all Tristania albums, I feel this one is detached from musical rules and genre expectations, and perfectly represents the musical freedom that I so much love about Tristania. During the writing and recording of the album we worked hard to create the album we had in our minds, but we were also careful to let the songs live a life on their own. We didn't set out to make the album technically outstanding or theoretically perfect, but we followed our hearts in all parts of the writing and production. I'm proud of Darkest White, mostly because of the uncompromising honesty and attitude that saturated everything from the songwriting and recording to the mix."

I am very intrigued by this, this might make up for their last album, which wasn't great.

Tristania without Morten and Vibeke sucks. It's like Cavalera's bastard teams after Sepultura...

The only album that I dislike from Tristania is Ashes. All others are really great and different. You can discuss whether its metal or not, but songwriting and especially vocal lines are always in high standarts. I liked Rubicon a lot and I am hoping this to be even better. And the cover art was unexpected. Probably the best in their career.

Totally. The cover art is great, but I don't care for their music anymore.

So you won't listen to the album? Not even out of morbid curiosity?

Calling something bad before even hearing it is quite ignorant, don't you think?

I'm just saying it's 90% I won't like it... There are many albums I won't check out because I know these are just not for me. You can't listen to every single album.

Well, fair enough. But did you like any of their previuos material that you have heard? Because if you did it sounds a little bit strange to call their new stuff bad just because you don't like the band anymore or even haven't heard the new material. Just sayin'.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I said it wrongly, I think I heard 1-1 song from the previous 3 albums, just not the whole albums, and I didn't like those.

I agree about the Vibeke part, since Ashes and Illumination are still great albums. However, the era of Tristania with both of them is obviously the best by far.

Don't expect the music to be good... because it won't.

This band isn't Tristania anymore, what a total joke. Not to mention the horrible artwork and album title...

You guys are all just a bunch of elitists. Sure, it's not the same Tristania we all fell in love with, but if you take it as a different band, then they are quite good.

Old Tristania was a 8.7
New Tristania is a 6.5
