It's always a sad sight to witness an institution tumble down hill, none more so than Dark Tranquillity, a band I once considered virtually infallible. Their prior album, Fiction, despite having some moments of greatness, certainly showed signs of greying around the gills, especially after their impeccably polished and resolute performance on Character; a performance which many would agree rivalled The Gallery in its impact: a true affirmation of their ever (if slowly) evolving skill, which is why from We Are The Void emanates the unmistakable whiff of disappointment.

Dark Tranquillity have just won the MS Awards in the category they have been nominated in and I think there are some people that still are in need of reasons for that. Let me give you a few hints. At first everyone should admit that the band have changed their style a lot since the infamous The Gallery. Once the music was fast, melodic and with insane melodies, but this era is definitely over. We Are The Void marks the next step into the direction of a more dark and heavy sound. Many dislike this and they have good reasons to do so, since one can miss the old days really hard. But metal changes, and so do the bands.

One of the three originators of the Gothenburg metal scene, Dark Tranquillity are still pretty much alive and kicking.
While they somehow stay true to the same formula since Damage Done (2002), We Are The Void is a bit more original than Fiction (2007). Darker, somehow more "black metal", with a different approach on the keys, it's no doubt DT... with a twist.

What the hell
it is like they decided to make an album so they mixed some old riffs together with some new stuff and here we go another DT release

I'm also waiting for the original CD, I only listened to the songs they have on their myspace so far. Well, I'm sure I'll have something to say about it then.

It leaked ,,,, sounds a little faster and heavier than the usual DT stuff

but with each and every track from the new album i really feel like i'm listening to an old DT song !

sadly , i think they're out of new riffs

1)which song does "Arkhangelsk" remind you? i am really curious..
2)you say that the new album is more aggressive and faster than character or fiction?

Amazing album, I loved basically every song in it. Beautiful piano pieces, perfectly integrated keyboards, interesting and diverse guitar riffs and solos, some of their best drum work since what I heard off of The Gallery. Overall, definetly a must buy. Anyone who wants to hear the entire album can stream it off of their Myspace. You won't regret it.

Don't know what to think.. their music simply doesnt make it for me anymore. Maybe its time for me to finally give up on them.

''Arkhangelsk'' is a very interesting song, the best in the album.

It's not on pair with the last 3 albums, I'll admit that, but it's still a fantastic set of songs. Those who listen to it more than once will soon realize how excellent We Are The void is.

To me, this album sounds sort of like a mixture of Haven and The Mind's I. An awesome sound, though the last three albums were better.(I'm ashamed that I could not wait until the official release date, but I'm still buying the actual album, even though the artwork bothers me.)

After a few listens it sounds so similar to previous albums, and having said that it makes me wonder when DT will mix things up enough to distinguish itself again. Another "The Gallery" would really make me pleased.
