  • Biography
    Hi! My name is Kasia. I'm amateur poet and writer. In my spare time I like writing short stories and dreaming. I define myself as eternal dreamer. I always walk with my head in the clouds haha. I don't have many friends. I found peace in solitude and silence. Sometimes I have impression that stars in the sky speak to me in a more understandable language than people. I'm interested in art, history of art, philosophy, poetry, literature, theater, old cinema, psychology, paranormal phenomena, nature, mythologies and lucid dreams. I'm crazy about cabaret and theater. One day I'd like to play main role in the theatrical play. I'm addicted to music. Music is as irreplaceable as other forms of art in my life. To be honest I can't imagine the day without reading poem or few pages of book or listening few songs. I like a lot of musicians and bands. I can't imagine my life without music and art. I love metal, rock, cabaret, classical, jazz, experimental, ambient, avantgarde and neofolk music. In the future I'd like to be a psychologist. My personality type is INFP. I think that's all about me. Feel free to message me if you want :)

  1. Which BM in your country makes you proud?

    Polish black metal makes me proud of my country
  2. Little known gothic metal bands

    It's sad that many amazing gothic metal bands known and little know are forgotten. Or when good band starts to play dreadful things (Theatre of Tragedy albums released after 1998....) Beseech is good band I like their music
  3. I thought it would be a good idea to post some little known gothic metal bands here. The Sins of Thy Beloved Band from Norway founded in 1996. They were often compared to bands like Tristania, Theatre of Tragedy... They released two studio albums and one concert video. Unfortunately band split up in 2013. I think their music was truly essence of gothic metal. Atmosphere, lyrics, music... Masterpiece. How Like A Winter Band from Italy founded in 1999. They probably split up in 2013. How Like A Winter released one demo and debut album called ...Beyond My Grey Wake Whispering Forest Gothic/atmospheric doom metal band from Estonia. They released two studio albums and five demos. I love their debut album. It's amazing! Mortemia Morten Veland's solo project. Awesome Morten's growls with choirs.
  4. Trail of Tears

    I completely agree with you! A New Dimension of Might is awful. Their worst album. Disclosure in Red and their older stuff from 1997 - 2000 is beautiful. Check out songs from their demo called When Silence Cries and album Profoundemonium
  5. Morten Veland (Tristania/Sirenia)

    Mortemia is Morten's solo project
  6. Arch Enemy

    I like albums recorded with Johan and Angela. Albums with Alissa in my opinion are terribly weak. Before Angela became Arch Enemy vocalist she was member of bands Asmodina and Mistress.
  7. Black metal bands with female vocalists

    What do you think about Dismal Euphony (this band has a lot of gothic metal influences, so in my opinion it doesn't sound very extreme) and Siebenburgen with clean female vocals? Both bands played melodic black metal. In Dismal Euphony first female vocalist was Linn Achre Tveit (1994 - 1998) In 1998 Anja Natasha became new Dismal Euphony vocalist. DE released only four studio albums. There were four female vocalist in Siebenburgen. Lovisa Hallsted (1994 - 1999, we can hear her on albums Loreia and Grimjaur), Kicki Hoijertz (1999 - 2001, we can hear her on album Delictum and Plagued Be Thy Angel), Erika Roos (2002 - 2006, we can hear her on album Darker Designs & Images) and Lisa Bohwalli-Simonsson (2008 - 2009 we can hear her on album Revelation VI)
  8. Trail of Tears

    Today I remembered about Trail of Tears. Trail of Tears was gothic metal band from Norway founded in 1994 by vocalist Ronny Thorsen. Initially they played under the name of Natt but changed their name to Trail of Tears. Band released one demo and seven studio albums. From 1997 - 2000 their vocalist was Helena Iren Michaelsen. Currently she's lead vocalist of symphonic metal band Imperia. To be honest I think her vocals in Trail of Tears were the best. I don't like Imperia. In 2000 - 2004 vocalist of Trail of Tears was Cathrine Paulsen. In 2007 she returned to the band and was a member until they split-up in 2013. We can hear her on albums A New Dimension of Might, Bloodstained Endurance and Oscillation. In 2003 - 2006 male vocalist of ToT was Kjetil Nordhus. Kjetil currently is male vocalist of Tristania and Green Carnation. We can hear him on albums Free Fall Into Fear and Existenia. Interesting fact is that Emmanuelle Zoldan from Sirenia was guest musician on Existenia. Check out song Empty Room with her! Also current drummer of Sirenia - Jonathan Perez was a member of Trail of Tears in 1997 - 2006. Another interesting fact is that Ronny sang on Tristania album World of Glass. Free Fall Into Fear is the only album in the discography of Trail of Tears in which we hear ,,beauty and the beast" aesthetic between Kjetil baritone and Ronny's growl. My favourite albums are demo When Silence Cries, Disclosure in Red and Profundemonium. Albums released after 2000 also deserve attention but I prefer their older stuff from 1997 - 2000.
  9. What Are You Listening To?

    At the moment I'm listening to Bergtatt. I listen to this album every autumn evening.
  10. Atmospheric Doom Metal

    20th October Hallatar's debut No Stars Upon The Bridge was released. Hallatar was founded by Juha Raivio as tribute to Aleah (Juha was in a relationship with Aleah until her death) On this album we can hear Aleah's voice in the song Dreams Burn Down. Also we can hear Heike Langhans (vocalist of Draconian and ISON, Aleah's friend) in the song My Mistake. Whenever I listen Trees of Eternity album Houf of the Nightingale I have tears in my eyes. Hallatar's debut in my opinion is as emotional and beautiful as Hour of The Nightingale. When I listened to No Stars Upon The Bridge for the first time I was really touched by all emotions, all words in this music. I'm sure Aleah would be touched and proud of this beautiful tribute.
  11. Theatre of Tragedy

    I love first three ToT albums and some songs with Nell Sigland. As you said before that's nice that they followed their hearts and didn't feel trapped in a genre but their newer stuff was terribly weak. My beloved Theatre of Tragedy song is A Hamlet For a Slothful Vassal
  12. Since Heike Langhans joined to Draconian I totally fell in love with this band. Of course I love older stuff with Lisa on vocals but with Heike Draconian's music has something magical. I recommend to everyone listen to album Sovran
  13. Morten Veland (Tristania/Sirenia)

    I agree with you! Sirenia should invest in a keyboard player for live shows. They sound live would be definitely more authentic. on Tbh I love both versions but original versiby Vibeke is the best. By the way I still miss Vibeke in Tristania and I hope she'll come back one day. Your top 10 is really nice! I love first and second place on your list. Widow's Weeds and Beyond The Veil are magical albums. Truly masterpieces. My top 8 (I can't choose 10) : 8 Sirenia - The Seventh Life Path 7 Sirenia - Dim Days of Dolor 6 Mortemia - Misere Mortem 5 Sirenia - Perils of the Deep Blue 4 Sirenia - An Elixir For Existance 3 Sirenia - At Sixes and Sevens 2 Tristania - Beyond The Veil 1 Tristania - Widow's Weeds
  14. Morten Veland (Tristania/Sirenia)

    I think Perils of The Deep Blue and The Seventh Life Path are the best albums recorded with Ailyn Especially Perils of The Deep Blue. This album is truly masterpiece. Compositions although they are long aren't bored (the longest is The Funeral March. It's over 12 minutes!) Lyrics are also really good. When I listen to Perils of The Deep Blue I get the impression that I sail with the sirens through the ocean of mysteries of life. I agree with you. Although I really like The Seventh Life Path, this album unfortunately has some disadvantages. I feel the same about compositions. They should be 4-5 minutes. On ,,Perils" there were long songs so for the balance songs on ,,The Seventh" as I said should be 4-5 minutes. Also some of lyrics (I mean Once My Light, Tragedienne, Insania and Contemptuous Quietus) aren't too good to not say weak. But the biggest advantage of both albums is Ailyn voice. She sound like true siren! Ailyn has lyrical soprano voice. She was learning classical singing. I have impression that on The 13th Floor and The Enigma of Life she could not properly use her beautiful voice. On Dim Days of Dolor I ran out of Emma's opera singing. (I'm opera freak so I think this is the cause) A little more operatic singing for me will be great on Dim Days of Dolor and next album I like the fact that DDoD refers to two firsts Sirenia albums. You're right lyrics on ,,Dim Days" are perfect. My favourite songs from Dim Days of Dolor are Cloud Nine, Veil of Winter, Playing With Fire and Treasure and Treason. I hope you understand what I wanted to say because I slept only 2 hours today and I cannot formulate correct statement Btw what do you think about Ailyn and Emmanuelle ,,My Lost Lenore" covers :D?
  15. Black metal bands with female vocalists

    Don't worry I'm sure you know more bands than me I still feel fairly new at bm scene.
