    The Marco thread

    From the top of my memory (I can look it up if you need more details): First time; After Tarja announced that she would leave the band after Century Child (which, as we all know, did not happend). He had a backup plan where he would go back to Sinergy. Marco also speaks here about how the rest of the band thought it was a strategy from Marcelo to let them feel the importance of her in the band. Second time; When Tarja announced that she refused to do the Australian and Japanese tours in 2005. He eventually did not quit because Tarja accepted these tours after the rest of the band threatened to cancel the South American leg (which Marcelo had arranged) if Australia and Japan were cut short. Third time; During the months that followed the South American leg they did in 2008 when Anette left the stage. Marco explained that he really tried to help her after that show, but she was raging and thought they all were assholes since they kept on playing more songs (covers and such) instead of leaving the stage with her (dejavu, anyone?). It was after this incident that she also hired her own manager, and all the flashbacks from Tarja came into Marco's head. He was also suffering from a deep depression at that time which did not help. He felt that the band's state were worse than ever, but he did not quit since he got some serious help from his psychologist during the break they had (right before the London show in March 2009).

    The Marco thread

    I got the book in the mail yesterday and I finished it right before bedtime Loved it! I was not aware that Marco had so much troubles growing up and I really feel I got to know the guy now. It's also very interesting to know that he almost left the band three times because of Tarja and Anette. Thankfully he got his head together instead of going forward it.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I agree! Come Cover Me is a beautiful song and I will be very sad if they replace it. Talking about setlist changes, the only songs I want them to switch out at some point is TGSOE or Ghost Love Score with Beauty of the Beast and WIHAA with Dead to the World (hopefully before the Gothenburg show). That's it, the rest is perfect as it is.

    Seventh Wonder

    New song!
  6. Marius


    Listened through the new album a few times now, and I can safely say that I like it After all the negative reviews I read about it wasn't sure what to expect. However, I totally agree that the two singles released are the most boring songs in there. Phantom Divine is just a Sacrimony rip-off imo, and Lauren Hart adds absolutely nothing to it. My favorites after the first spins are currently "Mindfall Remedy", "Stories Unheard", "Vespertine" and "The Proud and the Broken". I also really like "Amnesiac" and "Burn to Embrace". I also think "Static" is kinda cool, which surprises me after every review pointed it out as the weakest song on the album. Edit: I also think Vespertine could fit straight into The Black Halo, very similar style.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I'm not sure if I would call it overestimating, rather being ambitious Also, I don't think it's the band themselves are deciding these type of things. It's more likely their promoters and booking agencies who are on cloud nine and thinks these venues would be a good fit. But just think about it, how great wouldn't it be if they actually manage to sell quite decent in these venues? The band deserves it. Edit, just saw the post regarding the Sao Paulo show almost being sold out. That's a great sign

    Random insert of video here, but fantastic to see so much headbanging by the band and crowd (2:37)

    Ah, ok. Took me a while to realize that. I just though I remembered a review saying that Tuomas did a duet with Johanna on Desert Flower

    Is that Tuomas singing the male part?! Man, if that's the case he really have improved his vocals!
