    Lacuna Coil

    The more I listen to the album, the more I think that it's their magnus opus

    Delain

    Actually, I am really feeling Symphonic Metal again this year and I noticed that Delain would be touring around Germany this month/next month. I wanted to buy tickets a few minutes ago but unfortunately, I just realized that the concert I wanted to attend is taking place right now #mess
  4. Mainshow

    Evanescence.

    Hopefully, the new album will be released before their WT concert.

    Epica

    I honestly don't know if 2019 can be topped, we got a perfectly remastered version of Epica's magnus opus + an anniversary tour, new albums by Lacuna Coil and Tarja which belong to their best works. Within Temptation found genuine inspiration again and hit #1 in Germany for the Ver first time + "Resist" was a great "concept" album. Delain probably released their best single to date and Heilung (who are metal at heart) delivered a true masterpiece with their latest record. Beyond the Black managed to deliver the longest running Symphonic Metal album on the German chart for a while now! Also, it seems that we'll finally get a new Evanescence single (lead single?). + We got a new The Dark Element album. I'm really looking forward to new Nightwish and Epica but personally, I think that 2019 was a perfect year for Symphonic Metal!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Anette is too petty for any kind of reunion to happen even if she was to miraculously get to be on speaking terms with the band again. If she couldn't deal with having another singer temporarily replace her while on maternity leave, there is no way she's going to share the stage with either Floor or Tarja. She's too insecure for that. She'd also not be satisfied with performing just a couple of songs, like Amaranth and Storytime. She's better off focusing on The Dark Element. But speaking of reunions, it would be cool to have Guy Elliott (the boy soprano from The Poet and the Pendulum). He's all grown up now. I believe this is him:

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Since this is already a wonderful off-topic discussion, I will contribute my two cents: Am I the only one who doesn't really care either way? If they reconcile enough to do a reunion show (which at least with Anette seems unlikely to me), great and heartwarming. If not its not a big deal either for me, since I enjoy the current era with Floor so much anyways. In the end if it comes to a reunion show I just hope its because they have actually reconciled and managed to forgive each other and not as some quick and easy money grab.

    Evanescence.

    Troy McLawhorn, the guitar player.

    Evanescence.

    Who is Troy? Anyway its confirmed to be soundtrack for the game
  11. GhostHell

    Evanescence.

    It was about time! I can't wait to hear Troy's vocal contributions for the first time in Evanescence. And maybe I am looking too much into it, but is the "5" a reference to their upcoming album? Or it's gonna be a stand-alone single?

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Of course. There must be also some Iron Maiden fans who wants an anniversary show with Blaze Bayley. If you take the population of "fan tastes" as a normal distribution and you extend you research to 3 or 4 standard deviations, there are certainly crazy tastes. I think the Anette era is something that Tuomas (and I personally) definitely want to forget so I can't imagine a reunion with her and it is irrelevant the fact that Anette said NO to something that nobody ever asked seriously and I never think it will happen . With Tarja things acquire more realism.
  13. Imagineer

    Evanescence.

    Yeah, it’s a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain. One of my favourite songs! They are releasing it for the soundtrack of that video game. There was a snippet released some time ago.
  14. Speckofdust

    Evanescence.

    What this means? New Eva song? What is gears?

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Was thinking the same thing. Highly biased but how can anyone not love Floor? (Although maybe Anette resented her, and hopefully is over that). A leading ladies of Nightwish thing. But what would that be without Tuomas? Musically I'm not sure what purpose it would serve. Just a sit down conversation between the three would be a neat documentary though. Focused on the experience for women fronting this big metal machine. Not about bad blood but maybe including something about the reality of touring etc. It could also help all three in a promotional sense.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Keeping in mind how many times Anette has contradicted herself, I wouldn't trust her even to ask what time it is

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    If there is ever a Tarja reunion it'll be in no small part because of her friendship with Floor and the latter acting as a "negotiator", which is ironic, yet possible. Floor is an old Nightwish fan too.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    (Still very much off topic, sorry mods. Should these messages be moved to some other topic?) But the thing is, there is never going to be a reunion however badly you want it. In Anette's own words from this month: "No. Never." With Tarja there might be slightly more chances because she's at least met Marco during Raskasta Joulua, but again the problems are probably mostly between Tuomas and the singers.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Both breakups were deeply personal, and unless those personal wounds are healed, nothing will ever come out of that. And given, again, that the bad blood comes from personal motives, all we can do is literally hope for those people to forgive, reconcile and reconnect, which is a highly unlikely chain of events one after the other, and well beyond the reach of only monetary or artistic concerns. Again, it was all really personal.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Tarja and Tuomas have been in touch recently, so there's that at least. Back on topic: i do hope that by 2025 we'll get two new albums after this one. Highly unlikely, but maybe...?
  21. The Name Of The Wind

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I would like Anette to come back for a song or two in a one-off show for nostalgia's sake. Same thing with Tarja, Jukka and Sami. But I think that the chances of Tarja and Anette returning are very slim, so it's a hypothetic discussion anyway.
  22. GhostHell

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Just so you know, everyone is entitled to have their own expectations and wantings and it's free to expose it on a online forum. Especially when it comes to a symphonic metal band. It has absolutely nothing to do with good sense. It's so annoying when you guys appears with all the old arguments against anyone who dares to talk about a reunion in Nightwish. Same story with the singers, bad relationships etc. Get over it. Let people wish something about a band they like to. If you don't want this to happen or if you think that there are million of reasons behind it, simply ignore the post of whom want it. Period.
  23. Nihilist

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I disagree. Never say Never. Many bands got back together after extremely strong fights. It's just a matter of how much money we're talking about. As you said, even the Guns N 'Roses got together again and they hate each other for god sake! Nothing is impossible. The other question is who wants Anette to come back?????? Please ... For what?????? Different would be an anniversary show with duets from Floor and Tarja, Jukka reappearing, even Sami. I do not see it impossible.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Finally, someone with a little sense around here. People don't understand how bad things ended between NW (mostly Tuomas) and their former singers. So many people expected a reunion show for the Decades Tour, and I insisted that was not gonna happen. And it didn't. Please stop expecting that, it's NOT going to happen. As long as Master Passion Greed exists, I doubt Tarja will ever forgive Tuomas and I think Anette is too stubborn and childish to do so too. Yes, I know that even Guns N roses reunited but you must understand that, for example, the GNR guys know it would mean something big. For Nightwish it's all the same. They are more successful than ever. And I'm glad they haven't sold out like that.
  25. Imaginarium

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    This is getting very offtopic but that guest thing won't happen. Anette said in an interview a couple weeks back that she would never reunite with Nightwish, and I doubt Tarja would either. Jukka and Sami most likely would as they've done it before and with Jukka there isn't any bad blood. This. The band had many issues for a long time. Too long DPP tour, tension between band members, depression, alcoholism, line up changes, Jukka's insomnia... No wonder they wanted a break after EFMB. If the band is happy now, I think they might be excited again to make new music faster and not wait five years between every album. And at some point I think they have to if they want to stay relevant. Yes, they do have huge fan base, but playing old songs and releasing live DVD:s of Amaranth and Nemo every couple years won't do forever.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    There's a vague memory of her saying something like this but maybe I'm wrong (i.e. "I'm bad with names). But I could be projecting. I used to ask an old teacher to play the first bars because I could never remember the name of anything. Maybe she's sort of confabulating. Filling in missing lyrics with what comes to mind that sounds alike and has roughly the same feel/meaning. With the recent rap twist she could just cover those moments with some Dutch scat (I mean the music term, not that other meaning). Taking things another direction...

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Well, I've got an impression that Floor is bad at remembering the names of albums and songs, so maybe that can sometimes be seen in remembering the lyrics as well I just rewatched interviews from 2015 and in one of them she totally forgot the name of Yours is an empty hope, even though that name is sung multiple times during the song, haha!
