  • How Did You Discover Nightwish
    Must have been in the early 2000's, The Kinslayer was the background-music in a video I watched. But somehow they stayed always a bit "under my radar" until I saw the Ghost Love Score video from Wacken 2013 not too long ago. I was blown away and now I'm hooked.
  • How Many Times Seen Live?
    Two times, 2008 and 2016, but "only" on Festivals, waiting for other Bands, as I was not really into them back then (yeah, a shame, I know :( ). In 2016 I was already amazed by Floors singing and her Stage presence. But strangely I took me two more years to fully appreciate them.

    The Floor thread

    It absolutely is!! Hope we can watch the whole episode soon (although I won't undestand much ) Edit: Haha I just realized that she sings in German, I did not know "Vilja lied" before and was not sure after the first listen (yeah, throw your stones ). Very interesting

    The Floor thread

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Absolutely! Boy, those eyes get me everytime So it seems that all the pieces of the new album will come together now bit by bit. Great
  7. Err, I think it was 2012 and 2014. Would've loved to see them in their earlier days, because I love Hybrid Theory and Meteora, the albums after those weren't really my thing.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Yes I think it was originally uploaded by the Bloodstock-Guys. Anyway, currently watching the whole show "remastered" and I got to say it eases the wait for the official Decades-DVD a lot

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Wow, sounds great, thanks for sharing! Way better than the original Bloodstock-Videos! It seems he/she even wanted to remaster the whole Wacken 2018 show, but "Wacken 2018 is not possible, because it gets blocked. That is a shame, because I got enhanced that audio so much better. It is incredible concert, and even more so considering the heat they were playing." Too bad

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I really still hope that we will get this DVD, but yeah it's been very quiet about it (besides that small "hint" on instagram) It would be a shame, so many great songs
