    Is anyone familiar with the Norwegian band Tristania?

    Rune, the bass player, gets the greatest tones I've ever heard on a metal album and I want to learn something about his playing style and the gear he uses...especially his live setup.

    Problem is - I emailed him some time ago and I haven't heard anything.

    He's got a real thick sound and plays melodic rhythms and grooves underneath the rest of the music. He's also got a distortion sound I really love. Check out 'World of Glass' if you are not familiar with Tristania!

    Please help if you can...

    I've heard some Tristania before and they were killer! Unfortunately I don't know the bassist's setup. Sorry man.

    Wow, I forgot about this thread! Thanks for replying melf.

    I don't think there is anyone who could answer my questions but the man himself, so I'm going to try and contact him again sometime. Very cool to find out someone else on this board has heard of tristania though! Check out their self-titled debut Cd if you can. It's only 4 tracks but it's an essential piece of gothic metal.
