    Well, I hope you are completely right! It's been too long since WT and NW last came and it's crazy because, as you said, they do have lots of fans here. Tarja, Evanescence, Epica all visit, Anneke even went to some very obscure Greek cities, so hopefully WT and NW will grace us with their presence in the not so distant future.

    Yeah, when I saw the tweet I thought about what Sharon said, and then I checked both their touring schedules, WT will be finished with their North American tour in a couple of days and Evanescence will do one in May, so they both have Europe and South America left. Really, how come? I wouldn't think so, since they haven't been here in 11 years. Evanescence visits regularly though, so I really, really hope that that's the case!

    Aaah! What do you guys think? Maybe that they will open for Evanescence in Europe? I definitely hope so, because that would make it more possible for WT to come to Greece again. edit: they deleted the tweet

    Well, either way that would be pretty stupid of him, even more so if he knew. It would be taking it too far. Also, who the hell would have wanted to see that?

    Yes, I know. That guy, though, probably doesn't.

    I mean... Sharon is dancing too in the videoclip, plus it's a very upbeat song, if I didn't know the meaning of the lyrics I would never have guessed that it's about loss, probably a break-up at most. That being said, I agree that it's disrespectful, and he definitely should have looked up the lyrics and their meaning before even thinking about posting a video of himself dancing stupidly & naked to it. The "resistance" bit sounds completely ridiculous dear Lord.

    So, dark Sharon and light Sharon meet again, except this time dark Sharon is pissed. At least she didn't start levitating for no apparent reason, again. It reminded me of Running up that hill, but yes it's also a much, much, much, MUCH better version of Ice Queen. They seem to love being in the outer space or somewhere really high up. I liked it she looks beautiful once again.

    I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's a very good album, probably on par with Hydra, but it didn't really thrill me. Hopefully I'll like it more the more I listen to it, but atm I'm not very pleased with it. I agree with those of you that said that it's not as musically diverse as their previous albums and that some of the songs kinda blend into each other. I also feel that the songwriting was rushed and not as thought out as I would've liked it to be - there're too many repetitive and generic lyrics. The Reckoning - I still like it, not as much as RyB, but definitely more than Firelight and In Vain. I do feel that I need to take a break from listening to it though. Endless War - One of my favourites. Love its dynamic, the orchestra/choir touches, the vocals and the lyrics. It's just a tiny bit too short (also does she pronounce miracle weirdly or is it me that does?). Raise Your Banner - Still love it. Makes me want to put on an armour and FIGHT. The fact that it's Sharon's fav makes me hopeful for the music they'll bring out in the future. Supernova - Quite nice, very energetic and catchy. The choir part feels a bit out of place, but I like it overall. Holy Ground - The bordeline rap vocals are cool and the chorus sounds gorgeous. However, I wish they'd worked more on the lyrics, they're so bad. I actually cringed everytime I heard those "ya's". In Vain - I've grown tired of it. Firelight - Still like its dark & haunting atmosphere, but as someone has already mentioned, I could do without the oh-oh-oh's. Mad World - Super generic lyrics as well. It does remind me of Sinead, but the latter is SO much better. Mercy Mirror - It started out beautifully and has some very touching lyrics, but I feel that they don't match the rest of the song's tempo/music, I think I'd prefer them in a ballad. Trophy Hunter - I like it a LOT, it could've been in The Unforgiving, but it doesn't reaaally pack a punch, there's something missing.

    ^Right, but like they died in them. It's a bit Game of Thrones-y

    She's so beautiful!! Still not feeling the artwork though and that coffin inspired photoshoot is a bit meh.

    Atm my ranking (from best to worst) would probably be: THoE - TU - Enter - TSF - ME - Hydra. I loove The Unforgiving, it has so many badass, upbeat songs that are perfect for working out, and all its ballads are amazing as well. From the snippets those that stick out to me are Endless War and Supernova. Aah, we're so close!

    It has an extra verse with new lyrics in the beginning, the old one started with the refrain right away. I prefer the new one, the lyrics make more sense that way. The Spotify version, which is basically the new version + the memento mori part at the beginning as well, is my fav of the three. Why the hell did they bring out three different versions at once though

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I'm with you guys. I just watched a Raskasta Joulua video and was kind of embarrassed for her. Hopefully she'll get back on track sometime soon. Omg she'll give a concert in Crete! How random is that!

    Aaah you can see their expressions here and the orchestra members' smiles. She's so cute <3
