  • Broken Base: Possibly one of the most extreme examples in Gothic Metal, with any discussion of them on the Internet usually getting derailed by Vibeke vs. Mariangela and Morten-era vs. Post-Morten-era arguments.
  • Face of the Band: Vibeke Stene — even though she left years ago, she is still probably the most well known and well liked member. In the current line-up, it's probably Mariangela or Anders Hoyvik Hidle.

  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The band has had more commercial success in Germany and France than in their home country of Norway.
  • In Name Only: Although two original members are left, many people felt this way with many of the key members leaving, particularly Vibeke Stene and Morten Veland.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Mariangela Demurtas, particularly when she first joined.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Mariangela Demurtas became much more popular when Darkest White was released.
  • Signature Song: "Equilibrium" for the Vibeke era, "Year of the Rat" for the Mariangela era.
