Tristania is a gothic metal band from Norway, formed in 1996 by Morten Veland, Einar Moen and Kenneth Olsson. Tristania's music is usually classified as gothic metal with death/doom influences (especially on the early albums), due to its strong ties with the goth metal's history. The band name could be a reference to Norwegian ''trist'', which means "sad" or "depressing"; and/or the tristania flower.
