Theatre Of Tragedy : Theatre Of Tragedy"
Masked Jackal | Ft. Lauderdale, FL United States | 10/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)


WOW. That's really the best word to describe this debut. No question a 5 star effort. I've never really heard music like this before. It's totally unique in every sense of the word....

Call it Folk Death Metal with female overtones, call it true Goth Metal, or call it whatever you think best describes this. One thing is certain, it's a MASTERPIECE OF MUSIC....

There's so much here, you really can't get all of it with one listen, or maybe even a thousand for that matter. There are layers of sound here, and it's a deep sound with some of the heaviest, and spookiest riffs this side of hell...

Liv Kristine, who is now fronting Leaves' Eyes, another highly recommended purchace by the way, is amazing here. This is some of her most beautiful work in my opinion. Her voice always seems to have a sad, yet rather uplifting feel to it. It's a truly incredible mixture of sounds comiing together here, that one must actually hear it to believe it....

I'm a new fan of this kind of music, and I starter out listening to Lacuna Coil. After spinning their CD's a million times over{LOVE THEM}, I needed, and started searching for something similar / different if you know what I mean...

I bought stuff from Nightwish{EHH??}, After Forever{DECENT}, and some Within Temptation{GOOD} in hopes of quenching that Coil thirst, but none of those bands really captured me or my full attention....

Then I found Theatre Of Tragedy. I'm highly satisfied once again. This is their debut, and it's a MUST PURCHACE. Check out Leaves' Eyes while you're at it, you will not be disappointed...

Good gothic metal
J. Ziegler | NJ, USA | 02/24/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is TOT in the days before they, like Samael, sucummbed to some weird fascination with electronica and ruined it for everyone. A nice mix of male growls and female soprano vocals over some nice if not overly complex riffs. (I always feel like the focus in these sorts of bands in on the vocals and keys anyway, so impressive guitarwork is almost a bonus.) I don't feel like it is as memorable as some Tristania or Sins of Thy Beloved, but for anyone who has not yet heard TOT or is just looking for another addition to his/her collection of gothic metal, this is a good purchase. By the way, as a side note, I did my phd comps in Renaissance literature, and the lyrics are definitely not in some Shakespearian English, as some reviewers say. It's really pretty much nonsense. So I recommend just sitting back and enjoying the music."
Keep the Beauty, Kill the Beast
Joseph P. Darak Jr. | Gallup, NM United States | 11/08/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"There is some great music, lots of talent, and a great female singer in this goth or Beauty & the Beast metal band. The male Beast grunts or conflict singing ruins it for me. If you like those male grunts alot then you should love this album, but I may not be able to stand it much and may have to put it down, or let it go as a flying frisbee. I give it 3 stars because I have not given up yet on being able to tolerate the grunts. If I lose that battle then the album is less than one star for me, in fact it will be gone as far as I can throw it."
