THEATRE OF TRAGEDY Remixed
Written by JayRock on 11th July 2019
AFM Records release Theatre Of Tragedy‘s compilation album ‘Remixed’ on 12th July.
In 2010, THEATRE OF TRAGEDY announced their break-up and drew a line under their
impressive career with ‘Last Curtain Call’. In the middle of the Nineties, THEATRE OF TRAGEDY wrote music history with their albums ‘Velvet Darkness They Fear’ and ‘Aegis’. Never before the band combined a dark male voice with a charming, bright female voice to this extent. But nobody could suspect that this mixture would create such an extraordinary diversity of dark and atmospheric shades making Gothic Rock/Metal that popular around the globe. THEATRE OF TRAGEDY have always been unique and will ever be.
This year, the exceptional Norwegian artists return with a compilation of different remixes
of their biggest successes and rise the splendour of former times. Reputable artists like
DAS ICH, ICON OF COIL and VNV NATION were tasked with remixing songs like Machine, Lorelei and And When He Falleth and revived those tracks in their own interpretation.
The band said about this project:
“We in Theatre of Tragedy have always been interested in a variated range of musical styles ranging from electronic music, through rock and to more extreme metal. This has been a huge part in creating the sound of the band over the years. Since the foundation of the band we have had a fascination for other people’s interpretation of our music. How others perceive our sound and compositions. Starting with the remixes of German Dark Wave artists, numerous friends and companions dealt with the songs of the Gothic Rock band.
This “Remixed” compilation is a result of this. A collection of very different reimagined
versions of some of our known, and more unknown songs throughout our carrier from
1997 until new remixed from 2019”
