    100% agree with this statement!

    Really weird hearing her sing like this, but it's cool I like it! Straight up rock'n'roll!

    I don't get the hate for The Carpenter. I find myself humming to it every now and then. Looking forward to hear it live in November. Also, it make sense to keep it as it's the first ever single and it's a chance for Troy to be in the spotlight.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I remember back in the days when I was younger and listened to Nightwish a lot on speakers in my room (around the Once/End of an Era times). My mother always commented on why I loved this woman so much when she sings so out of tune and falsely all the time. I may have been blinded by my fanboyism at that time, but listening to that "Die Alive" video I start to realize that my mother had a pretty good point. Should also point out that my mother has always loved darker type voices, ex. Beth Hart, Tina Turner and many soul artists, but never ever heard anything good in Tarja. Regarding the rest of the video, it looks great and the performance itself is awesome. I just wish someone, like you all have said, would tell her that this type of vocals does not work for her.

    Such a shame all the good stuff was left out knowing what this tour's setlist include in their regular shows. But at least we'll have a pro-shot of Gethsemane, Devil and Slaying the Dreamer now

    Another thought I had was that it could be Alissa joinging them as the Devil in DATDDO

    Just went on the official Wacken live stream and Nightwish is listed as confirmed streams for Friday in their schedule. See below: Excited to watch! Edit: Kai also confirmed the stream on his Facebook and posted a link to it (same as above).

    As much as I would have loved that, taking into consideration that they are at Wacken and will most likely exclude slower ballads, I think it would be more likely that it would be Gethsemane or Sacrament Which again would be awesome since Simone basically started singing because of Oceanborn! But yeah, since she said «I» it’s probably a duet with another band.

    Floor just posted on Instagram that she is on her way to Wacken and that she/they have a surprise ready! Do you think it could be Simone joining them for a song? Epica is playing on the same stage a few hours before Nightwish. Or it could be that Floor will join them on stage or Arch Enemy the day after

    Within Temptation

    In Flames has probably been one of Scandinavia's (or Europe's) biggest metal bands since the early 00's so I'm surprised you have not heard of them (they have existed since early 90's). However, their popularity has decreased since the last three albums due to change in musical direction, but I supposed they still qualify as a 'popular' band If you're interested you should check out their most popular songs like 'Trigger', 'Only for the Weak', 'The Quiet Place' or 'My Sweet Shadow'.

    Apparently they did Wishmaster tonight with Netta Skog (Ensiferum). Tapio was also there

    Nightwish Off Topic

    A little off topic, but loved seeing this guys reaction to TPATP. He's crying so hard, it made me emotional as well

    Just insanely good and sooo nostalgic! Hope they will film a performance with Tapio
