  • Fiction is too glorified next to the rest of their material. Not saying that it's bad though; of course it's great. I saw these dudes live, sadly with no bassist but still good, loved it.
  • Fiction > Haven > Damage Done > The Gallery > Sky Dancer > Character > We Are The Void > Construct > The Mind's I > Projector.
  • Nether Novas is one of the most beautiful moments in the history of music.

  • Think you might be looking for Arch Enemy...
  • I still can't believe Angela left :(
  • Might also have something to do with the super consistent line up.
  • I think the key of the success of Dark Tranquillity is the fact that every instrument in the band blends perfectly together with the others. With the exception of the vocals (Mikael is one of the best singers in metal for me,) they don't have a great drummer, the best guitar players or the best keyboardist. But everyone contributes at their own shining by their own merits. They are not over the top technical and also the prove you don't need to be hipertechnical to be good. I prefer so much Dark Tranquillity over Dream Theater tbh.
