    I hope they filmed one of the Wishmaster performances for the bonus material section of the Blu-ray release I'm really looking forward to it regardless though. I'm still mad at myself for not planning my time better and making sure I was able to go see them this time.

    Myrath - Metal music from the desert

    They've always sounded closer to a mix of Symphony X and Orphaned Land to me. The new song is nice though.

    The Old Era

    Agreed. I think when he said anyone that's what he meant, speaking in general terms about his feelings on hearing his songs performed by anyone outside of the band. And if he's okay with anyone covering these songs, that obviously also includes Tarja and Anette and that he doesn't see an issue with it. They're not exceptions to his general feelings about cover versions.

    The Old Era

    Why do you find it odd? Tarja and Anette are not Nightwish. Any Nightwish song they perform counts as a cover version, both technically and legally speaking.

    Within Temptation II

    Yeah, her voice definitely improved. Supernova was catchy if a bit cheesy, but still fun. Mercy Mirror was kind of the ballad version of that song. It seems that with the exception of Firelight all the songs actually sound very cohesive.

    Within Temptation II

    I really like Endless War. Great choice for a third proper single, if that's what they're planning.

    Within Temptation II

    Yeah... it's the usual problem with modern WT songs - the chorus is super shouty. Raise Your Banner sounds great live though.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Agreed. They both have better outfits in the performance pictured in your post.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    In general, yeah. But then there's that garbage bag dress she wore a few years ago (for example during the live duet with Within Temptation).

    They recorded the shows in Buenos Aires and Bogotá.

    Within Temptation II

    I'm hoping they record a couple of additional songs for the album release then, or add some kind of bonus tracks to it. It feels a bit anti-climactic to have almost half of the album officially out in high quality before it drops. There won't be much room to release any further singles afterwards, which means it's going to bomb. Then there's the fact that they're already touring with all these new songs. I feel sorry for the band. Their label messed this up real bad for them.

    Yet another clip to promote the re-release of End of an Era. Here's hoping they'll upload just as many to promote the upcoming Decades Tour release...

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    She obviously can't use the instrumental recordings by Nightwish as backing tracks for her live performances because she doesn't own those, nor would it make sense when she has her own live band on stage. She could have them play the songs exactly like Nightwish did/does if she wants, but I'm guessing she wants to add her own flavour to them by having them be slightly re-arranged.
