Dark Tranquillity Closers

A proper album closer can be a tricky thing to nail. Different enough from the previous material to finish it off memorably, but similar enough so it still fits in with the overall sound. Dark Tranquillity have a discography littered with impressive closers.
1Dark Tranquillity

My Negation

I adore this track, the ideal closer and an all time great.
2Dark Tranquillity
The Gallery

...Of Melancholy Burning

An album that displays the perfect opener and the perfect closer.
3Dark Tranquillity

The Mundane and the Magic

The track that best encaptures both sides of the DT sound.
4Dark Tranquillity

At Loss for Words

Amazingly lush atmosphere that builds supremely to finish off an otherwise fairly straight-forward album.
5Dark Tranquillity

None Becoming

Really like how this track grows and plays out.
6Dark Tranquillity
We Are the Void


A fairly dull album improves towards the end, before closing out in stunning style.
7Dark Tranquillity
Damage Done

Ex Nihilo

Not usually a fan of instrumental closers, but the general mood and atmosphere of this track really solidifies the albums coherency.
8Dark Tranquillity

On Your Time

Great track, but doesn't stand out quite enough from the rest of the album for me.
9Dark Tranquillity

In Truth Divided

Probably the band's softest ever song. Sometimes it works beautifuly, others not so much.
10Dark Tranquillity

Caves and Embers

Another decent track that doesn't really differentiate itself enough from the rest of the pack.
11Dark Tranquillity


Haven't really heard this enough tbf, doesn't strike me as a classic closer tho.
12Dark Tranquillity
The Mind's I

The Mind's Eye

As said before, instrumentals aren't the best for me. Feels like a lesser Mine Is The Grandeur, but without he immense payoff to follow.
