Nightwish

  • How Did You Discover Nightwish
    I was in a pub and I heard a song so wonderful, I just had to check out that band. And then I fell in love with them.
  • How Many Times Seen Live?
    Three times, once for each lady
  • Most Memorable NW Memory
    I guess it was when I saw them live for the first time. Tarja was still in the band, I stayed in the front row and that's when I met my best friends and the guys that introduced me to my husband. It was a magical and life-changing night in many ways...
  • Most Prized Nightwish Item
    A Ghost Love Score T-shirt. Both because it's my favorite song and because the artwork is so awesome.
  • Best Live Song
    Ghost Love Score, of course. I thought I was going to die when I heard the beginning, I never expected them to play it in that concert.
  • Favourite Album
    Century Child, followed closely by Oceanborn
  • Favourite Song
    As if it wasn't obvious by now, Ghost Love Score.
  • Favourite Album/Single Artwork
    I haven't payed much attention, but I guess it's Imaginaerum
  • Favourite Music Video
    I'm not really a fan of their videos, but The Islander and Over the hills and far away are the most decent ones
  • Favourite DVD
    From wishes to eternity

    Amaranth, I detest that song!

    It's a tie between Haggard and Rammstein. Rammstein were amazing, it was a great vibe, a great atmosphere and a great show, but Haggard are amazing without all the pyros and stage plays, they rock simply by singing with passion and enthusiasm and after seeing them four times already, I still can't get enough of them or choose the best performance

    Within Temptation II

    To me being or not being symphonic is the smallest problem. I just want it to be good, regardless of the genre. And Hydra was way too repetitive and dry for my taste. Paradise in particular was a huge let-down, when you hear Sharon and Tarja join forces, you expect something epic and it was just the same few notes repeated over and over. Resist is a lot more creative and engaging.

    Within Temptation II

    I would say it's how the album goes down in history. Of course everyone can call it a masterpiece to their own ears, because it definitely has a subjective part to it. But if we're trying to speak of masterpieces in the more objective sense of the word, I think first and foremost, some time needs to pass and see how the song/ album ages and if it remains in the collective memory as a benchmark of the genre (or even of music). And by that I don't mean only in the fans' minds, but also in the mind of other bands that will use that song/album as inspiration. If he would actually try to understand the critics and care, he would've taken the video down and appologise when he found out. He's arguing that omg he's a rebel, not knowing the story of the song is not the problem. It's just that his respect for his abs overrides his respect for the band he claims to love. Ok, back to Resist. I hated Hydra with a passion, but Resist is a pleasant listen. Yes, it's a light listen as well, but it's melodic and not irritatingly repetitive and Sharon is always lovely (when she isn't drowned in synths, I mean, so I'm glad to see this time I can actually hear her beautiful voice colour). Probably not going to over-listen to it, but it's definitely a step back up.

    I'm in love with My dark symphony, it's perfect. First and foremost there's Roy who simply shines in that track, but there's also that gloomy slow melody and such a penetrating atmosphere. Did I mention there's Roy? I'm so happy he's back and he sounds like he hasn't missed a beat.

    Oh. I'd better get my hands on it, then... I was expecting the full album and didn't want to "spoil" myself with the EP, but if that's the best we're going to get, I guess I should just listen to it and be happy there's even an EP to be talking about, after all the slumber.

    Ayreon

    I don't care what project it is and who's singing in it, everything Arjen-related is bound to get me very very excited. Looking forward to whatever comes out of his brilliant mind.

    Pain of Salvation

    In my opinion In the passing light of day is their best and most solid&cohesive album. I love the band, but I can't get into all their songs (definitely not at any given time), while this album is one I can always enjoy in its entirety. I also want to spread the love for this song, which is such an underrated gem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilVpNAgtd9s

    So when is the album coming out?
  10. angel_heart

    Sirenia

    I'm disappointed with the new album. The previous one showed a lot of promise on many levels, so I was actually excited at the thought they're releasing a new record and I expected it to be rather good. Turns out it's one of their worse. It's not embrassingly bad, but it's just dull. And ironically Mortem tries so hard to do unusual things because he wants to position himself as an out of the box songwriter, and then fails at basic creativity "don't repeat the most boring chorus in the world ten thousand times" elements.

    Considering I'm still in the process of reading it, I wouldn't be able to help...

    FiRMA

    I saw "Desteptarea primaverii" (Spring awakening) the other week, it was amazing. It started out as an amusing play with silly teenagers, but when it turned into a dark and gutwrenching story I was completely sunk into it. Especially since it was writen almost 150 years ago and it's still every bit as real and stong. But it was Rocca&Co that completely stole the show, the audience politely clapped for the actors, but when it was the band's turn, the theater erupted into a cheer, it was clear who everyone had come to see. The music was beautiful (I'm frantically searching for the soundtrack) and it enhanced the experience so much. And Rocca is just awesome, I love the guy so much. I'll leave you with the only song i was able to find from the play:

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Now you're just being tendentious. It's one of the most positive songs they've ever had, it's about enjoying life even if it's not always perfect and being thankful for the fact that you're alive to being with. It's definitely not about how we're all gonna die. To me TGSOE was the highlight of the night, in the context of just having enjoyed a great show and having had a lot of fun, chanting "we were here" was perfect. It made me grateful to be able to experience such moments.

    FiRMA

    I didn't know this one either, but it's not exactly what I listen to Firma for. I'm not such a big fan of their newer upbeat tracks, I prefer their graver songs. But Rocca can make anything better I don't know anything about a new album in the making, this is a track for a local radio called Guerilla. "Binele invinge" (the good always wins) is their motto.

    That was the sweetest thing I heard in ages! Awww, how cute! He must be immensely proud of her, and so modest at the same time. \ I'm really happy for you that you decided to go and that you had fun! I envy you, but I'm also happy for you. When you mentioned the "we have found the seventh sign" part, I could hear in my head that magnificent ending of the Star one show and I got goose bumps. It must've been amazing to be there in person! I have to get my hands on the DVD at least...
