  1. Here is my new demo, experimental Folkish Black Metal. http://www.myspace.com/597566425
  2. I am new to Tarja`s solo stuff I recently bought "Act 1" I think it is a very good live recording, and is very varied in its approach and her voice is amazing. I am still in two minds wether to buy the DVD? I do like to have both to make comparisons bewteen hearing and watching performances.
  3. Henrik Meinander A History of Finland, very good so far.
  4. Åsa Larsson The Savage Alter, read the synopsis of this book and wanted to get it so I did.
  5. Rare Exports A Christmas Tale, directed by Jalmari Helander 2010. Have heard about this film on the net, and became intrigued by it. So I got it, and very good it is too a good and original story about who the real santa it. I thought it was done with great humour and it has a neat soundtrack as well. :wub:
  6. Currently reading The Poetic Edda, translated by Carolyne Larrington. Very good so far...
  7. Found this thought it might be of interest, not music related but its good to see Finnish tourism features metal musicians http://www.visitfinland.com/article/tuomas-holopainen-likes-to-escape-from-crowds-and-sweat-in-the-hiking-trails/
  8. Special Forces, directed by Stéphane Rybojad 2010. A very good French film about the rescue of a journalist who has been captured by The Taliban, the film details the operation and its aftermath. With Diane Kruger, Djimon Hounsou & Denis Ménochet. Very good indeed!! 7/10 The Warriors Way directed by Sngmoo Lee 2010, an odd and quirky tale this. Set in the west in a town in the desert, and involves ninja stuff when a stranger rolls into town. It tells the tale of two battles, the one of the inhabitants and the Ninja warrior. The look of the film remeinded me of “Sucker Punch” all shot in glorious Technicolor. Also really good. 7/10
  9. Have just finished The Kalevala, it really is a brilliant tale. The Prose and language are wonderful, and the descriptions of places and characters are beautifully written! It is now my favourite book, it has knocked The Lord of the Rings off the top spot. What to read next...?
  10. Personally I would not find Nightwish lyrics disturbing, although some of the content does have a darkness to it. I have been looking in the booklets to see if I could find anything disturbing, one song which did stand out was Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean. The line "Fatal embrace of the bloodred waters The cradle of infinite gloom" I dont know why it just conjures up something malevolent, but probably more gothic than disturbing. However I figure it is subjective as to what folk find disturbing in lyrical content.
  11. Arn The Knights Templar Directed by Peter Flinth 2008, with Joakim Nätterqvist & Stellan Skarsgård. Set in the early middle ages during the time of the crusades, tells the tale of Forbidden love “Cecilia” who is sent to a convent and Arn who has to fight in the crusades. A very powerful film and visually stunning, I think this is better than the Ridley Scott film Kingdom of Heaven. Which is also a great film. :wub: The Kings Speech Directed by Tom Hooper 2010, this is a very good film with out standing and heartfelt performances by Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. It must have taken Colin Firth an awful lot of voice coaching to perfect the stammer! Visually richly shot and tells the tale of how “Bertie” overcame his speech problem, there is some great humour in this film too. And Timothy Spall does an exceptional Winston Churchill.
  12. Albums Dark Passion Play Once Oceanborn Songs Seven Days To The Wolves The Islander Swanheart
  13. Out of all the Nightwish songs I have, I would have to say that "The Islander" are my favourite lyrics. They have a forlorn melancholy to them that I think is really wonderful. :wub:
  14. Master and Commander The Far side of the World, Directed by Peter Weir. A worthy film this if a little drawn out here and there, but on the whole a very made film, the overall look of the film is authentic. And I like the story too good that I have finally got round to seeing this.
  15. @MarcoObsessedScaretale I haven`t seen Nightwish live either, and they have been to Britian many times. :sad: its a bit embarrassing since I have been following them since 2004 :blush:
