Band biography
Tristania photo
Tristania is one of the leading gothic doom metal bands from Norway and was formed in late 1996. They have often been compared to Theatre Of Tragedy and The Sins Of Thy Beloved but since neither of these bands sounds anywhere near the other that is a bit of a weird comparison. Tristania do have a connection to the old Theatre Of Tragedy though since their former guitarist Tommy Olsson (Elusive) is a brother of Tristania´s drummer Kenneth Olsson. The band has so far released two full-length albums on the Austrian Napalm Records and is currently working on their third. In February or March 2001 the lead vocalist Morten Veland left the band due to musical differences which was officially confirmed on May 7th. In 2004 they signed a new contract with Germany's veteran metal label SPV.
