Dark Tranquillity have become something of a legend amoung their fans. Not only are they the only member of the Gothenburg 3 to still be outting good leodic death (ATG split while In Flames went la la in commerical metal land), they've been consistently supllying us with top quality metal albums for around two decades, yet to deliver anything outside the realm of fantastic. As an uber fanboy, new DT releases hold both excitement and anxiety in equal measure; excitment about hearing new material and anxiety that they might slip up and deliver an album thats 'only good'. We'll, after getting my filthy hands on a promo copy of We Are the Void, i can safely report that all's well on the DT front.

Carrying on with the style mapped out on Damage Done, Character and Fiction, We are the Void is another brilliant, if somewhat familiar sounding CD from the reigning kings of Melodic Death Metal. As usual theres a fair diversity of songs like speedy agreesive numbers Shadow in Our Blood and my favourite Surface the Infinite, the stopping groove of Dreamland Oblivion and In My Absence, the stop-start riffing of The Grandest Acusation and the token 'clean vocals song' Her Silent Language, all of which are excellent and do justice to the high standards one would expect. The biggest surprises come in hideously heavy Arghanglesk and the proggy, droning closer Iridium, both of which show more a of a modern/post-metal sound that brings to mind Cult of Luna or Isis. Overall, We are the Void sees a slow encroaching of more modern metal sounds coming into the bands sound and a slight, very slight, toning down of the Gothernburg melodies. That said, it's definitely a DT album through and through.

Evolution...

Dark Tranquillity have changed their sound, from the quasi-blackened sound of their first EPs to the neoclassical guitar shred of The Gallery, then adding keyboards and electronic elements and blossoming into the piano/choir symphonic-tinged sounds of their newer albums. Out of all the original bands of the Swedish Gothenburg Melodeath scene, DT have consistently balanced change with tradition, without compromising on sheer quality, style and musical flair. (Eck-hem! In Flames)

When I first heard the single from this cd, I was skeptical and thought that this was going to be a boring follow-up, riding on the success of Fiction, which I enjoyed greatly. However, on full listening I discovered that it is a consistent, at-times beautiful, at-times energetic and aggressive record: in short, DT put out another good record.

It has all the necessary elements for a solid melodeath release - the only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is that it doesn't quite explode like some other bands or some other DT records have. Nonetheless, niiiice.

Dark Tranquillity made their best album in 2004 with Character after about 15 years of innovative death metal song writing which, though keeping a common trend was never repetitive. With We Are the Void (AKA Fiction II) this pioneering approach to song writing seems to have come to an end.

The album opens interestingly enough with their first single Shadow in Our Blood which is classic Dark Tranquillity but it's hard to find anything too exciting about the song which has elements of both Fiction and Character but no real original or commanding features. To many the heavy handed use of keyboards in Fiction made the band more accessible but their continued dominance in We Are the Void make the overall sound a lot weaker. It's not even as if they are bringing anything advanced to the table, a four note sequence on the piano does not quite cut it, especially when the melody, and in fact the whole of the track, sounds almost exactly the same as a song from a previous album; take The Grandest Accusation vs. The Lesser Faith for example.

It's not all doom and gloom for the Swedes though, mid-way through the album they manage to produce a few songs which have the same drive and enthusiasm that we expect from Dark Tranquillity, culminating in Arkhangelsk (which admittedly sounds a lot like Inside the Particle Storm, but we'll bypass that point for now), and I Am the Void, which delivers what we expect from Dark Tranquillity. But these songs only seem to be good because they follow a formula from previous albums.

HASH(0x9541fdbc) out of 5 stars What you can expect, a great Dark Tranquillity album 11 Mar. 2010
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the experimentation of earlier albums Projector and Haven, Dark Tranquillity have been on a creative roll since 2002. The absolute greatness from DT came in the form of Damage Done where they ditched the clean vocals that some felt hindered the last two records before, changed up the keyboard style a little, and introduced lead guitar riffs showing an obvious influence from The Gallery. Pretty much, Damage Done was a return to the more classic style from other previous records. The creativity would continue to flow onward as they put out two more great albums: Character and Fiction. Does the creative roll end there? In my opinion, I think not. The new album We Are The Void is definitely top notch, and there's no doubt that as soon as you hear a track (no matter which one it is), there's no mistaking this for any other band. It sounds like Dark Tranquillity. I don't know how most people felt about Fiction. It was basically my introduction to DT, so I felt that it was the perfect album. We Are The Void is kind of a darker, more melodic version of Fiction while still retaining some of the heaviness that the band is known for as well as the solid production heard on Fiction. Also, anybody that was worried that reintroducing clean vocals on the last album would backfire on the band don't need to worry. Fortunately, what worked on Fiction works here as well. I'm not gonna say that it's the band's best effort ever (it's a damn good one) since I'm sure that some will be convinced that their earlier stuff's the greatest, but I will say that it's for THE Dark Tranquillity fan. A fan that isn't expecting any particular sound from any other record they've put out, but is expecting to hear Dark Tranquillity, nothing more and nothing less.

There is a limited deluxe edition that is available, and it features two bonus tracks and a bonus dvd. The dvd has a half-hour documentary on the making of the album filmed by The Haunted guitarist Anders Björler, the making of the video for "Shadow In Our Blood," a trailer for the recently released live dvd Where Death Is Most Alive, and two clips from that dvd making the total running time about an hour. It's worth a look if you'd like to get an idea of how they made the album, and the making of the music video was funny to watch. As for the live clips, you don't need to views clips to know if you should buy Where Death Is Most Alive or not. If you're a fan, do it. It's completely worth it, as is the deluxe edition of this album.

HASH(0x9532f4d4) out of 5 stars I Love Dark Tranquillity 10 Oct. 2014
By Ghost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I Love Dark Tranquillity, and am a long time fan, but I feel that I can be objective enough to say that fans of the "harder" edge side of the melo-death crowd would be pleased. Not as intensely focused on keyboard melodies, though they are there, the album is based off riffs and rhythm. The production is very "In your Face", and songs like Iridium and Arkanglesk show DT's experimental side, while the bulk of the album delivers the DT you know and love, with a certain rawness to it.
