    Wishmaster. When the ballads of your powermetal album are the best songs, you have a serious problem and should reconsider changing musical direction. Luckily, Tuomas did.

    Should be Crownless. Or Bare grace Misery. They do nothing for me.

    Nice. Hope he enjoyed reading Borges But I really wanted Ayreon to win the contest. Arjen has never used a full orchestra before. And BYond the Matrix does not need it, I find it such a waste. It will end up sound ing like all the songs in "The Classical Conspiracy" which sound the same... Speaking of books, Mark said he's finishing an Epica book. Hopefully it will be good....

    Why is he still here? I literally can't think of something more contradicting than saying Nightwish does not have emotions and being emotionally incabpable of understanding TGSOE. It's about life. Evolution. And hell', all the instrumental part that goes from primitive chants to Enter Sandman and all music in between is pure genius. It's about celebrating life, the human race and its achievements. It's in the end the same message Tuomas been preaching since DPP: "Carpe Diem". Enjoy your life while you can. And there's nothing more cathartic than shouting "We WERE HERE!" with the band. Seriously. Some people should just listen to My dying bride instead of NW if you just want to hear depressing music. Either that or people have the attention span of a 4 year old and just want 4 and a half minute catchy songs, which is ironic considering they tend to label all of tha as "pop" and "mediocre".

    Within Temptation

    I said the same for Nightwish. Let's just ignore AFF because it didn't bring them success, so let's start with WM: WM: Woow, it sounds like OB but mediocre. And it's just full of ballads. They have sold out this time. Their only good albums are the first two. Over the Hills: An EP? And remakes of AFF songs? Clearly they want to ignore their past to become more commercial. CC: A male singer? Where are the keyboard solos? Why does the male singer does not growl like Wilska? And Tarja does not sound like in their previous albums, clearly they have sold out. Once: An orchestra? Nemo is their most commercial track ever! We want more power metal, where is that? And Tarja has stopped to sing like she did before, clearly they have sold out. DPP & Irum: Anette does not sing like Tarja. She is a pop singer. They have sold out. EFMB: They have ran out of inspiration. They have sold out, So, yeah, not only a WT-case On-topic: A song with Jasper? I was introduced to this guy by one of the best prog band of the last ten years, Guilt Machine and I LOVED his voice. I'm really excited about it!!

    Within Temptation

    Just consider it as a warm-up tour. It wouldn't be the first time a band has done something like that. Yes, they will probably play new songs, but just the singles that would have come out up until then. Therion did something similar. They played songs from Beloved Antichrist before the album was released. Hell, even Metallica tends to do that too.

    And the password is...? Any clue? BTW, if any of you have the app "Shazam", I'd recommend you to use it on the snippet...

    ^^And that is a valid commentary. Instead of saying "it's crap, it's trash, whatever". People should learn from @Serena
  9. Symphoniker


    But none with Floor and that makes it special.
  10. Symphoniker


    Agree. I've always said so. What's the point of doing a side project if it's gonna sound like your main band? I've always hated when they do that (I'm looking at you, Dream Theater members) (And before you reply with "Scrooge", it's not NIghtwish, it's not metal, it's an orchestral/folk project.). And I did like the track! It sounds like Foo Fighters but with Floor, which is a really good thing!

    Uhh..Viva México?
  12. Symphoniker


    Well, I can translate Marcela's lyrics. Dunno Italian, though. Dime Luna Llena (Tell me, full moon) Como borrar las memorias (How to erase the memories) Los recuerdos mienten (Memories lie) La incertidumbre nos hiere (Uncertainty hurts us) The chorus is in English so there shouldn't be a problem. But...OMG..Marcela and Laura...I love how they sound together! I do think both of them are some of the best female singers in the genre. I'm happy to hear Marcela in a new band, even though it's just a side project (Yeah, I'm also glad one fellow mexican is recognized in the scene, way to go, Marcela!)
  13. Symphoniker


    Does anyone still listen to this band? Last time I checked I saw a video where they played in front of...a hundred people at the most.

    Within Temptation

    Yeah, they're so mainstream I'm tired of constantly hearing them on the radio over here. Hell, I'd rather listen to "Despacito" again, than ever listening to Within Temptation on mexican radio. Please.
  15. Symphoniker


    Yeah @CatsAreLiquid you speak as if they constantly played live. They've only played live thrice.
