Guest review by

"Beyond The Veil" is the second full-length album by the Norwegian act Tristania. It was released in 1999 and so far this is claimed to be their best release and righteously so. In this album the symphonic Gothic style is most perfectly defined and highlights every track on this release with heavy and dark beauty. Even better, one never gets the feeling of clichés or beauty vs beast influences while listening to "Beyond The Veil". Pure quality music only... plus undressed girls on the cover are always nice to see.

Rating: 10 Among my fav albums ever.

Too bad the duet Veland/Moen stopped working together after this album. Those two made a really unique style.
And Vibeke's angelical voice... I surely miss that.

Such a dirty yet beautiful album at the same time, masterpiece, yessir.
