That's true! Let's see, something interesting... Oh yeah!

 

Some of you might remember that chocolate Marco I had. So I bought one more, and gave him braids. XD Oh shut up! I know it's a lousy attempt, but I didn't have my Build Your Own Marco-kit with me. XD

Build Your Own Marco-kit with me.

 

THE HOT NEW CHRISTMAS GIFT OF THE SEASON.

 

(heh, if only)

 

For a DIY job, it's pretty good.

^ I was just thinking that. Get out of my head woman! Get her Morpheus! :morpheus: I just wanted to use that smiley... :blush: And that is my favorite thing about Marco! When he gets old he's gonna look just like Santa! :santa2: I hope he puts in some charity time standing outside a grocery store in Finland somewhere dressed as Santa playing a bright red bass. :rofl: Stick a pair of Stevie Wonder shades on him and you'll have the coolest Santa in all the land! Now there's a Santa I'd give lots of money.

When I go to nightwish.com now it just goes straight to the English homepage, so I was wondering, are they going to have a Christimas-themed intro page this year? I liked those.post84125168357274.gif

I just noticed that the majority of the songs I put in the "Favourite Nightwish Songs" section on my profile are the most "mellow" ones. Which is weird, because whenever I shove a Nightwish album in my CD player, I can't wait for the heavier ones to start so I can bounce around the room. LOL! XD

Turns out I don't like the male vocals on Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean or The Pharaoh Sails to Orion. :(

 

I love those vocals! I always wished Tapio would come back for another song or two.

On the contrary, they need to get Tapio Wilska back. After getting booted from Finntroll, I doubt he's doing much now.

I agree! At least for a song or two. I'd love to hear a duet between Tapio and Marco.

I just don't like it. It doesn't quite fit in with the band, nor their other material. And no, I don't much like the vocals on 10th Man Down either. It's nothing against Tuomas' and the rest of the decision to include him, I just wouldn't have used him. Also, on Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean, Tarja's squeal sounds like it hurt quite a bit.

*shrug* I personally feel Tapio's vocals fit some of the 'darker' songs perfectly. I would have loved to hear him in Ghost River... It would have fit that song so well.

Sorry to barge in like this in the middle of a discussion, but I was wondering; did anyone from here make this video? I love it sooo much, it's just perfect. :)

I just had my first annual Nightwish album marathon. Over the past two days I've listened through the demos, Angels Fall First, Oceanborn, Wishmaster, Over The Hills and Far Away, Century Child, Once, Dark Passion Play, and Imaginaerum. I can honestly say that this has sorta cleared my mind a bit. I feel that the emotions are just plain GONE in Once. And though she tries her best, and considering the songs weren't written for her, Anette seems almost emotionless in Dark Passion Play as well. :( This definitely puts a hamper on how I rate my albums now... :unsure: It looks more like this:

  1. Imaginaerum
  2. Oceanborn
  3. Century Child
  4. Angels Fall First
  5. Wishmaster
  6. Dark Passion Play
  7. Once

Regarding his doings in music, he plays bass in Soulgrind and Survivors Zero. :P And generally I think he's been quite active with guest appearances and stuff.
