Not my best painting and not entirely finished. Probably I am not skilled enough to do it as I imagined yet. Anyway, sharing it here in original resolution, just hit the download button. Inspired by a song:

Lead me down to the sea,

To where the sirens call and where the waves are raging free;
Sing for me, all of your sweetest melodies,
And then let me drown into your arms, into the sea.

Personally I prefer the first two albums, but among their later works this is one of the best songs.... at least for me. Spectacular art, full of atmosphere and a dark feeling, but also somewhat touching.

Thanks!

I personally consider "The 13th floor" album as their absolute masterpiece :) Also, waiting for the new album!

I agree there's some nice songs in there, but the truth is, after the first two albums Morten sort of lost something which never again came back. The last remnants of his Tristania years are gone by now and those were and always will be the time of his best music. Those masterpieces will never be matched. That's what makes me not-so-excited about any next album anymore.

Well, a thousand people, a thousand tastes. That's what's beautiful about music.

And the new album preview is already up on YouTube ;) I didn't like it though...

Nah, the beautiful thing about music is music itself, the way different sounds come together to blend into something more than the plain sum of them all. If you take a song apart to its elements and hear them separately, that becomes very evident. You realize that each of them is nothing without the rest to combine with. That's also what Master Morten was very good at ;)

Heh, that doesn't make me an optimist XD

True, all of it; what I meant is that different combinations make different musical genres or sounds that appeal differently to people. There is virtually infinite amount of possible combinations and you never know how will people react. For example, I like both soothing sounds of rain in a forest and ground-shattering metal music, but I can't stand reggae or djent. And there is a certain beauty in this organized chaos and human mind.

Of course, and I know you meant that. But I'm a bit of a musical nazi, Metal is the only thing for me (and bird songs :3 ), and all those who don't share that vision and feeling just heavily suck XD (At the same time I'm glad most people *don't* share it because that makes us, metallers, a rare breed, and that feels soooooo sweet XD So what you say about (dis)organized chaos? *self-irony* XD )

Chaos... Before I hit science I was convinced that the chaos is the natural order of things - Chaos theory, Butterfly effect and all that stuff. Later I realized that you can find patterns in nearly everything, found out about Fourier waves and entropy, pondered upon the vastness of the universe. And it all came down to an idea that the whole universe is governed by one single thing/idea - simplicity. There is chaos in the beginning, but it soon turns into organized pattern and gradually becomes single simple state. 
Music is a sort of organized chaos that seems random at first, but is actually built on solid fundament of patterns that can be further broken down into simple sine waves.
