    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Yeah, nobody said it's being delayed. They had these things planned for maybe even a year now. People need to stop panicking...

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I think you have to find the balance. I wouldn't want the audience to be in every song, but hearing Floor encourage the audience to scream and then nothing is kind of awkward

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Troy's playing kind of bothers me at times. The intro of Sacrament for instance, it just sounds... I don't know, kind of out of tune? Maybe it's just because he uses different instruments in the Oceanborn songs? It kind of bothers me in Gethsemane too.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Well, yeah, that is because we want the recording to sound as close to the (usually perfect) live version as possible. And it's too bad when it doesn't, since we know from ST, for instance, that it's not impossible. But, yeah, personal expectations are definitely an issue too, not denying it.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I listened to the album once, and I can say I'm satisfied, but maybe not as much as I could be. I agree that Floor's vocals are not perfectly mixed, and, indeed, there are fan recordings where she sounds better. And having seen them live at the Decades tour, I can definitely say she sounds better than she does here. I remember getting chils in songs like DBP, and while I definitely think it sounds great in this recording, it just isn't the same. But, come on, I don't believe they are doing it as a conscious decision to downgrade our expectations. That would be ridiculous. Especially since she still sounds better in heavier songs than in the ballads. Don't get me wrong though. I'm not saying she sounds bad, far from it! She is a phenomenal singer. I disagree about the music though. It sounds pretty good, maybe even better than Showtime at times, at least you can definitely hear the orchestra and synths here. Plus guitars and drums sounds beefier than the albums in most songs. (Although Kai being in the forefront in the verses of DSC was kind of lame). But still, as I said I'm more satisfied than annoyed. The first five, six songs are amazing. Come Cover Me is so beautiful and 10th Man and EOAH so powerful! This is a thousand times better than Wembley. I still can't listen to that album(which is really stupid, since the bonus songs from that release sound so good!) Troy is meh in The Carpenter unfortunatelly. His singing, I mean. But Marko's F bomb in The Kinslayer was funny

    Dude, relax. We know the album is probably coming in April. They have plenty of time.

    Within Temptation II

    I like the idea of a refined Resist. I like the album, it's one of my faves of 2019, but I just wanted something more. At the same time, I believe releasing 5 songs out of just 10 before the album release was a bad idea. It made the whole album feel like, well, not an album. So, I'm definitely interested to see where they can take this sound.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    If the theme of the album is indeed what we believe it will be (environment, mankind's decay etc) I do believe it will be heavier and darker though. Not that it won't have soft moments, it definitely will, but I can't imagine a song as "soft" and happy as Elan or My Walden for the first single for instance.
  9. Imagineer


    Yeah I agree about her clear vocals on that recording. Maybe it was a sound problem though, she sounds too high pitched.
  10. Imagineer


    So, um... yeah. Marcela's growls are officially better than Mark's I hope there are some on DHWH! Also, that moment when you have an equal amount of singers and musicians on stage

    Say what you want MCR, I still think this album is great!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Oh, you're right. I had forgotten about that! I wonder if these symbols will also appear on the actual album cover. On her leg.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Wow, it now seems like Floor has a new tattoo with the infamous symbols! Getting more and more intriguing! No pictures yet, someone who met Floor yesterday with RJ said so on Facebook.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Yup! I mean, it wouldn't be bad if it was original (probably much better than 90% of greek music) but like, come on. They could have called it a cover I also remembered a video which looked a lot like Within Temptation's The Howling, even the clothes she wore, but couldn't find it.
  15. Imagineer


    I like the title more and more. It's cheeky and fits so well with the theme of the album. BTW, I didn't expect Masters of Destiny to be on the new album. Hunter's Moon was supposed to be the final part of the Lunar trilogy (not sure if that's an offiial name), but it somehow ended up here as well. Not complaining, though, it's a great song.
