We all well know, who they are and why we love them, right.
Lets talk of "whats your favorite album?" and, why you like them so much youve entered this topic, and stuff, you know what we did allready

My favourite album is "Character", i don't know why, maybe becouse i havent really listened much to others, but when i heard "Character" i was blunted
And one interesting fact i found here on MS that Niklas Sundin from Dark Tranquillity wrote the In Flames "Whoracle" lyrics.

DT has always been a hit or miss affair for me... I like "Haven"; "Damag Done" was so-so, then it kinda clicked, really disliked "Character", but "Fiction" turned out great to me.

Back to the new album... I think I like it, not too sure though. What annoyed me the most was the clean vocals... Never expected that really

But they have clean vocals on several of the othe albums, including "Fiction" How is it unexpected? I personally love his clean vocals, I think they are used just the right amount on "Fiction", so I have to wait and see how they are used on the new album.
unexpected for me as they felt out of place, unlike "Fiction". I'll give "We Are The Void" some space for now and return to it sometime next week


Oo, i understand. I thought you meant it was unexpected that they used them at all, so I was really confused lol. I'll have to wait to get my hands on a copy this week and see how I feel about them then.

Might revise my opinion, heard the album again yesterday. It sounded pretty good, but somehow I got distracted, so not sure

I found it pretty good too, not great, but still enjoyable.

I like the new album....especially the dis-harmonics they throw in now and again to give the album a darker edge. Its good that they kept the essence of DT in tact but still added fresh elements to their music. Much better album than "Fiction" which to me was a total borefest.

I like Character and Fiction. Pretty much because those are the albums that got me into the band.

Well, I choose "Fiction" because it's the first DT album I heard and I loved is so much.

But the albums "Haven" and "Damage Done" are my favorites too.

I prefer Fiction, it has a hint of Gothic in their music, and I like that.

Character is in my opinion their best album by far along with Fiction. As i know, they are trying to make every album different, but to be honest these two albums are quite similar and both really professional and very good.

My favorite Melodic death metal band and one of my favorites. For me it is Damage Done, because I discover them with this album, but I do really like Character, Fiction and Haven by this order.

I went to the gig in Stuttgart last Tuesday and I am still amazed. I had never been to any Dark Tranquillity gig unfortunately, although they have been one of my favourite bands for years, and it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Stanne even pointed at me for headbanging too hard to Monochromatic Stains yet their best songs were, in my opinion, the Fiction ones, particularly Misery's Crown. Insomnium was the supporting band and I found them very interesting as well, having never been a fan before.

The only downside was that I don't like the style of this tour's t-shirts, so I did not buy one. I still have not got any Dark Tranquillity t-shirt

Insomniun is also a very interesting band with good albums, specially the two last. Some people consider they are really similar to DT, but I think they are growing and having their own style. One band for the future, also Bel´akor.

Yes, Bel'akor is an awesome band. Maybe they are the next kings of Melodic Death!

Anyway, D.T rules!

Hi, some days ago I bought the Japanese edition of latest Dark Tranquillity's album "We Are The Void" but lyrics for bonus "Out Of Gravity" are missing in the booklet. Can anyone pass the lyrics for this song?

My fave from DT is The Gallery because that's the only one heard. I'm not really into melodeath but I liked this album a lot because of the complex yet melodic guitarwork and soloing, somewhat brutal drumming.This gallery also reminds me of the Atheist album Unquestionable Presence vocal vise and because of the awesome guitar solos and overall proggy feeling to the whole album.

Let them take the time they need
I say that because I must have seen them at least 3 times in the last 2 years (basically, on the same tour) so I can wait and have a break

but you are being selfish! As I am.

I for one, would have liked to see them live more times. But yes, they should take their time and not rush things.
