Velvet Darkness they Fear represents the band's first evolution from their inception, as they would remake their sound with nearly every album. And this one would represent their last output in the doom/death style, though thankfully not their last in the neo-Calssical. The self titled album was a clearly produced but hard hitting album with LOUD acidic guitars and a sorrowful, spooky atmosphere. Velvet Darkness they Fear, the band produces a piece where the metal is not as visceral in tone and the songs are more moody and contemplative than obscenely dismal. Velvet Darkness They Fear is, of course, Theatre of Tragedy's second masterpiece, released in 1996. While the band sounds better, and the production too, the songwriting has a tendency to be a tad inconsistent in certain places.

With Velvet Darkness They Fear, Theatre of Tragedy continues in the path of excellence that was created with their astonishing self-titled debut. This album is by no means a radical departure either unlike some of their later albums. They maintain their traditional sound but have diversified enough to make to give this album its own distinct outlook. Theatre of Tragedy continue too write timeless gothic doom with unforgettable elements of beauty that made their first album such a success

Theatre of Tragedy was a Norwegian band from Stavanger, active between 1993 and 2010. They are best known for their earlier albums, which influenced the gothic metal genre. In 1994, their first studio demo was recorded, and in 1995, the debut album Theatre of Tragedy was released, followed by Velvet Darkness They Fear in 1996 and the A Rose for the Dead EP in 1997, which contained unreleased material from Velvet Darkness They Fear. Arguably, the band reached the apogee of its career in 1998, with the release of the critically acclaimed album Aégis. Released in 2000, Musique was a massive departure from the gothic metal sound that Theatre of Tragedy had developed over the previous three albums
