This Norwegian six-piece represents the intersection of doom and goth metal. Where many goth metal bands tend to overdo the flowery angle, Tristania thankfully counterpoint passages of stark beauty and ghost-choir vocals with punishing amounts of low-end crunch and demonic growling. Released in 1998, Widow's Weeds was the band's first full-length album.
