"Vibeke’s reasons why leaving Tristania:
Alot of Vibeke Stene fans were very disappointed about Vibeke's departure.
Well,fans,you need to understand that Vibeke has always dreamed of becoming a singing teacher.
That was one reason.Another reason is because she got pregnant in 2006,and gave birth in fall 2007.
These are 2 basic reasons why Vibeke left Tristania.
You need to understand that having a child means giving alot of attencion.
Otherwise,Vibeke would like to thank you all for your support!" http://www.myspace.com/vibekestenesupporters
Tour Diary 2008 - Svein Terje left the band (Osten - 08/05/08)
Dear fans and friends of Tristania.
After a turbulent year with injured drummers and runaway female singers we thought that our worst struggles belonged to the past. It is with regrets I must announce that we were wrong.
Putting a last hand on the preparations for WGT and the upcoming tour in Latin America, we learned that Svein Terje had decided to jump the ship. The timing could not be worse, because it was way too late to replace him for the upcoming shows.
I am not sure concerning the reasons – I hope for his own sake that they are valid. I love Svein Terje like a brother, but I must admit that this feels like being stabbed in the back.
However, we will do the tour with Anders as the only guitarist, and pre-recorded guitars to fill the void after Mr. Solvang. Not an ideal situation, but we will make it work.
The rest of us are eager to get out there and play our songs for you.
WGT is a festival that brings good memories and the return to Chile, Brazil and Mexico is something that we have been looking forward to for a long time. And finally we get to visit Argentina.
On behalf of the band I would like to say that we are ready and eager to get out there!
When we find time, we will post our impressions and thoughts about the tour here and maybe some pics as well. Feel free to comment and ask questions on the way.
Our plane leaves from Stavanger at 0600 a.m on Friday…
Greetings from Tristania (words by Osten)
(Osten - 10/05/08)
After being ripped off by the airport personel at Sola airport, Stavanger (due to too much and too heavy luggage), we finally got on the plane that was going to take us to Frankfurt . The first flight of many these upcoming days. There was a noisy German business-man in the seat behind me who was cracking jokes and laughing loud.
I hate early flights, and I hate loudness at 6 in the morning.
From Frankfurt, we got another flight to Leipzig and when we arrived at the airport, we missed one bag, but the most important part of the gear was all there. We checked into the hotel, and could finally get some sleep. The hotel is the same as we stayed in when we played WGT a couple of years ago.
The show started around 9.30Pm, and I think the crowd was quite slow in the beginning - but through the set they were really loosening up.
It was strange to be on stage without Svein Terje beside me, but I guess we will all just have to get used to this.
I think the show went well, the stage sound was good, and the crowd was friendly. Thank you to those of you who took the time to see our show. These are the songs we played: Libre, Shadowman, Angellore, Mercyside,The Wretched , Down, Beyond the Veil , World of Glass.
We are all looking forward to the next shows. Today is a day off, which means sleeping and drinking and maybe seeing a few shows at the festival.
Take care everybody.
Очень неприятно. (
Все хорошо на своем месте - в Элайте крики и истероидность в вокале звучит более чем уместно, а в Тристании - порнографично. Либо г-же Демуртас надо менять манеру исполнения, либо парням - звук. Но парней больше.
