 Also, as similar as their voices are, I still prefer Christine Lore over Tine Mitgaard; it's a subtle difference, but it's definitely there.

 

 

Same here. Tine's still really good, but I do have a slight preference for Christine. Does anyone when she's coming back, assuming she plans to at all?

 

She's in maternity leave. She's supposed to return when the baby has grown enough so I'll give it a few months until she returns.

 

 

 

If I'm not mistaken, she's already been gone for a year and then some, right?

 

Well maternity leaves usually last around 50 weeks or so. I have no clue when she left. But most likely she has a few months left.

 

 

 

Ah, I see. My mind percieves time as going faster than it does, I guess....

I actually really like the Gravity Hurts remake, in some ways more than the original song. With Breakout I was a bit worried they were going to much in a techno direction (though that song has grown on me), but Gravity Hurts assured me that they haven't lost their edge. The guitar riff is more prominent and better composed than that of the original version. 

I also kind of liked the change to "battle is all in your mind." It's an interesting idea, and it helps to separate this song from Bionicle.

The new version of Gravity Hurts sounds more like a single rather than the original one. However I like them both about equally.

I dont get what its saying. 

Is it saying that you dont need physical strength to win a battle and only mental?

I sort of thought it meant that there is no literal battle, and that it's all imagined. But I like that idea too. It's one of those lyrics that's open for interpretation. I think that it makes the song more interesting than the rather straightforward lyrics of the original version.

I found the instrumentation of this new version paling in comparison to the original. And the change is sort of unneeded.

 

Surprised that this isn't on iTunes.

Its a great version of the original song. I'm kinda torn between which on I like better. Though the original is more set in my mind than the new one.

I kind of agree. Part of what I love about Cryoshell is how complex the instrumentation is. This felt just like generic rock. The vocals were still good, although I too am wondering what prompted the lyrical changes.

I just got the new song! It's so cool! These guys need more exposure. The're all 100 percent better than anything on the radio.

 

Not to take away their own merits, I believe that's not really difficult :P

 

So Gravity Hurts is "there".

Here's the song in MP3 format, 320 kbps. If anyone has a heart attack and think's that I'm doing something horribly illegal, keep in mind that a device used to record audio from videos is no different than a TiVo used to record a TV show.

 

I also have the original audio file in the uploaded video's native audio format (.m4a). If anyone wants it, shoot me a PM.

 

When/if this song becomes available on iTunes, I will promptly take this link down.

Agreed. And Nightmare? It's all about Talim, baby! ;)

 

Too bad I used to use her as a training doll (until I found out she was too small to train properly) :P

 

Nah, I miss her and Zasalamel, actually!

 

Back to the topic! I do like the new version, a LOT. BUT. I feel that getting rid of the piano and the strings in this song wasn't a really good decision. They should have tried to implement them a bit in the right spots so it could be a truly amazing version. I'm also not sure if they changed anything beyond the "and you're mine" verse.

[color=#000066;][font="Garamond;"]Much as I love Cryoshell's music, I have to say I'm disappointed. I thought Lore's voice was great. But this Tine Midtgaard person.... I'm not digging it.She's not bad, don't get me wrong. But I prefer Lore's vocals by a hefty margin.Breakout is good and I don't mind Tine too much in it. But Gravity Hurts has always been one of my favorite songs. I'd have rather waited until Lore comes back to get a new version of that one.[/color][/font]

Maybe it's just nostalgia, but I prefer the original version of Gravity Hurts more.  Niels Brinck's vocals are superior in my opinion (so probably not a coincidence that "Face Me" is another favorite of mine!), though I do admit the instrumentation is quite good.  Someone with better audio skills than I do needs to put Niels' vocals over the new instrumental.  It would be incredible!

 

I still got chills when the first chorus kicked in.  Even in a new version, Gravity Hurts is one of the best; and that's coming from someone that's been with Bionicle since the start.

I'll have to agree with you there on that first statement. And also the second. Aaaaaaand also the third.

Actually, it's kinda the case that there might be a small 100% chance that I totally and utterly agree with you there.

Maybe.

 

Anyway, how about I un-lazy for once and actually look for intrumental and acapella downloads of both songs, so I can mash 'em together a bit. =)

Would be even more awesome if I could find the tracks for the individual instruments, but that's most likely not going to happen, unless anyone here happens to know a link.

 

 

Oh, and am I the only one that really wants to see what would happen if Cryoshell were to make an album with Machinae Supremacy? [/fanboy]

Yeah, I have realized something similar recently as well.

I just started listening to Cryoshell albums and was surprised how good they were. 

Has anyone else listened to the new version of Gravity Hurts by them? It's sung by Tine Midtgaard. It has a more alternative rock feel to it than the original and has a few different lines as well.

This is truly one of my favorite bands. Creeping in my Soul and Closer to the Truth are my favorite songs. Closer To The Truth fits well with the past 13 months of my life.

 

I just love this band. Few people outside of the BIONICLE community know they exist, but they are just amazing. Easily my favorite non-American band. Their music speaks to me in a way that few other bands speak to me. I just can't wait for Christine Lorentzen. Tina Midtgaard is good, just not as good as Lorentzen.
