    We don’t know yet. But as we’ve said before it could be something commemorating the anniversary tour of DYU so maybe acoustic versions of DYU songs or something like that.

    DNA

    Question for my fellow Finns and anyone else who might know the answer. I got my DNA tested via Ancestry.com. A woman named Sarah reached out to me to see if we were related. We're possibly 3rd or 4th cousins according to Ancestry. Her message to me is as follows: "My mother was a war orphan the part of Muolaa Finland is now part of Russia (ceded to Russia after the war) the church was burnt down with records my Mother's name was Anja Marjatta Keistinen born in 5-15- 1933 she was one of 10 children I never met anyone of her relatives so I thought DNA could help me find relatives." The question I have is....were birth, death and marriage records only kept by the church or did the town, village or municipality also keep records of people? Are there any Finnish organizations or private companies available to do some research for her? Any websites that could help her out? Thank you to anyone who can help Sarah out! Greatly appreciated by me too!

    Frankly impressed with our beloved Marko. It has a very fresh style. I've only listened half of the album so far but does anyone else think that in the songs Tähti, Hiekka Ja and Kuolleiden Jumalten Poika there is a certain touch similar to Ayreon or the soundtrack of Mass Effect (it was the first thing that came to my mind while listening to it lol). That kind of electronic-stellar combination is fantastic IMHO.

    They are not working on a new album. They' ve said it countless times. It will probably be released late 2020-early 2021.

    @Damian You're right about Tarja, and I'm sorry to not have noticed before. I'm an Age of Floor Nightwish discoverer so I've not been fair giving Tarja's work enough attention. My last post wasn't so lofty but you touch on the core of my feelings about Floor. Her love and joy for music and her exemplary demonstration of what this can be. As an amateur I look on her and think, "This is how it's done!" When she says she wants to be an ambassador for good music that melts my heart. Please Floor, yes do this! So here is the lofty part. I'll borrow from what I've learned treading between classical and folk music. There is huge richness in participating - not just being an observer. Not just a consumer, even if you truly love what you take in. We can all participate in the arts in some way regardless of the form of expression or our skill level. Posting on a forum is even a form of this. I encourage everyone to be involved in the arts in whatever form. We've nearly lost the feel of communal sharing that comes from sincerely "putting it out there", however we are able. It enriches everyone when we do.

    There is what looks to be a very good translation by a user below the official Youtube video. Lyrics: I feel and hear your voice, it echoes to eternity. You were broken, but I'll remember longer. Though a man's might is broken, the dust fills the the vessel. Tonight as well I know you're singing me to sleep. My father's voice. I sing with it as well. My father's voice. Sing my son, you too. My father's voice. From the fathers ancient. My father's voice. I will remember it. And I know event if the gates of heaven were closed before you, here you were known as a man of justice. On my behalf, you can break down those gates just for fun... Your goodness can't be chained by the letters of law. My father's voice. I sing with it as well. My father's voice. Sing my son, you too. My father's voice. From the fathers ancient. My father's voice. I will remember it. Although they claimed our flesh is earth. It's the ashes of stars, burning through the ages. The life and blood to it. Fills the veins with song, with song. My father's voice. I sing with it as well. My father's voice. Sing my son, you too. My father's voice. From the fathers ancient. My father's voice. I will remember it. (x2) I must admit that the sentiment expressed in this song, especially in the chorus, is quite moving. Also, Floor has been absolutely lovely, promoting the hell out of this release on her social media. She is the best thing to happen to Nightwish, if they screw it up with her, I don't think I could forgive them... (I need to learn how to embed Facebook posts on here).

    I usually can't help falling in love with her super bright smile everytime she's on stage. This is something that I feel with Floor and Tarja. I admire many singers out there, but these two women are very special to me LIVE, and it's mostly because their happiness! I mean, you just give these two ladies a mic to sing, and they become the happiest people on earth. Something I also noticed every time these two end their performances, no matter if it's a sad or a happy song, it's like they're out of their character they're playing/acting, and while their eyes are shinning, they make a big smile to the crowd like saying "thank you for letting me doing this, for living my dream". Can't help but feeling this. Just remembered when Floor went back on stage after giving birth to Freja. The big smile on her face during Merlin's Will, like "omg I missed doing this so much"

    After just one listen (Isääni ääni aside) I'm impressed and even a bit surprised. That said, it's not a masterpiece or anything, but a great album. Marko has obviously already proven he knows how to write music, and it's nice to hear his voice in ways different to what we usually hear in Nightwish. I have to say I liked the first half the best. After Laulu sinulle some songs started to feel a bit too similar too each other, but more listens could cure that. Obviously, there is a language barrier, and I expect my opinion on several songs to change once I hear them in English... but that's for another day. Thoughts: Kiviä - First track, and already made a good impression! The instruments, backing vocals and melodies create viking metal. Me like! Isäni ääni - All about the modded guitar. Marko's soft voice is good. I wish I knew the lyrics. Tähti, hiekka ja varjo - That synth intro was so unexpected but so very welcome! Then my first thoughts interestingly were "this is what Wishmaster-era Nightwish would have sounded like today." That kinda changed when the singing started, but anyway... Kuolleiden jumalten poika - It's heavy. Kinda "eh". Nothing more to say as of yet. Laulu sinulle - Love the atmosphere during the calmer parts. The "underlying" vocals in the second half are awesome. Minä olen tie - Again, some of that same atmosphere. Juoksen rautateitä - Don't know the lyrics (although this is "I run on railways") , but this feels like the most lighthearted track. It's fast, it's fun, there's a vintage organ and the song sounds like it could be from the 70's or 80's. (In my mind. I'm not really familiar with those times.) Vapauden kuolinmarssi - Much emphasis on bass and vocals here. Unelmoin öisin - This one will benefit from English lyrics, I think. Totuus vapauttaa - Well, most of it (or what feels like most of it) is instrumental, and it's just my type of instrumental music, so I'm quite happy. I saw dark cliffs being struck by the ocean waves, which felt like an appropriate image to end the album with.

    I need to listen to it a few more times but my first impression is that I really, really liked it! Isäni ääni was imo actually one of the weaker tracks. Overall it’s a very diverse, even experimental album, definitely more prog than heavy metal. I really enjoyed tracks 1, track 3 with the electronic influences, track 5, track 7 which has really great character and was probably my favorite, and track 8 right through to track 10, which with the strings sounds almost Nightwish-y. Overall, I think Marko can be really pleased with the results and I‘m definitely getting the English version when it comes out.
