I think that this line-up, if able to work together of course, would be able to put out a pretty damn good doom/gothic/black cd.
The vocal section has vocalists that I happen to be fond of for different reasons and I think they'd sound good together. I was thinking Østen Bergøy of Tristania would be good in Christopher Schmid's place, I think he is a better singer technically, but Christopher puts alot more emotion into his singing which is what made me choose him. I think Ihsahn has one of the best black metal voices around and those vocals sound cool when mixed with gothic type stuff. Anita just has a great voice, plain and simple and the added dimension of a third singer with a different voice is good stuff. None of these vocalists sound remotely alike, which I think would make a nice blend. I'd like to see the vocal duties roughly divided equally.
I like all the crazy stuff that Ihsahn does on keys (I like Peccatum . . .), so he'd be a cool keyboardist.
Trym is a solid drummer. I'm not a drummer, I have no idea how hard it is to play stuff, but he sounds good.
I love the guitar section of Rapture. I have no idea if they are the most technically talented guitarists, but they sound awesome.
Pete Johansen is a great Violinist, I like the violin. This band will have one.
I couldn't think of a Bassist, maybe the band wouldn't have one (you can hardly hear bassists on cds these days anyway).
