    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    I love that Misfits song, and both Misfits albums with Michale Graves (though the guy's kind of a wingnut). This is controversial in the world of punk, as many have a "Danzig or nothing" attitude towards them but I can't help what my ears like. Also... The title track from the latest Myrath album has been on repeat for me. I love this band so much!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I have absolutely no problems with bands talking about political or social issues that concern them most of the time. It only concerns me if the lyrics end up being outright bigoted against certain groups of people (hence why I'll never like NSBM). If Tuomas decides to write lyrics about how selfish human beings are destroying the planet, then more power to him (he already kind of did on "The Greatest Show on Earth"). I really don't like the idea that art of any kind should be completely and totally apolitical, honestly, including the stuff I disagree with (see: the NSBM bands I despise).

    Motivational power metal. I do enjoy it! https://www.napalmrecordsamerica.com/store//amberian-dawn-looking-for-you-digipak-cd-t-shirt-bundle.html Also, Fabio Lione is on one of these songs!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I'm really hoping that art in the background of that tour poster is part of the new album's cover, because it's pretty awesome! It gives me "Bloodborne" vibes. Also, look at the poster in its full size and then at Tuomas and Troy's hair. I'm assuming whoever edited this poster didn't expect people to look particularly closely, because...

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I kinda can't help but feel like this is going by faster than usual. Maybe it's just the excitement, though. And as long as the album's good, that's fine of course!
  7. Werewolf

    Lacuna Coil

    "Anima Nera" almost reminds me of The Birthday Massacre for some reason. I have no idea, perhaps there's something wrong with my ears. In any case, it's a pretty good intro and certainly sets the mood for the rest of the album quite well. "Veneficium", "Under the Surface", the title track and "The End Is All I Can See" are currently my favorites. Gonna have to listen to this even more, as I really enjoyed it! Also, my preorder is apparently not gonna be here until the 15th, according to the Century Media site. I want my book and tarot cards, dammit.

    Nightwish Album Rankings 2019

    Well, for me, it would be... 1.) Oceanborn Just my favorite in terms of guitar work and atmosphere, I think. Listening to this makes me feel like I'm being transported to another world. That main riff in "Stargazers", the interplay between the guitar and keyboard in "Gethsemane", the beauty of "Swanheart", the aggression of "The Pharaoh Sails to Orion"... just nothing but bangers on this one! 2.) Century Child This is an extremely close second to OB. Again, it has a really great atmosphere to it and you can feel every song on this thing in your bones. I love it. "Beauty of the Beast" is one of their absolute best songs, and I'm still dying to see Floor sing that one! 3.) Imaginaerum And this...well, it's an extremely close third to CC. I feel like this is where they peaked with their more modern film score-influenced sound. Diverse, yet very consistent in mood and atmosphere. Oddly enough, I wasn't quite sure what to think of it when it came out, but it grew on me significantly and is now one of my favorites. 4.) Once While "Wishmaster" was the first NW song I heard, this is the first NW album I heard as a whole. For that reason, I have a very soft spot for it. "Ghost Love Score" is of course an undeniable masterpiece, "Dark Chest of Wonders" is one of their best openers, and the b-sides/bonus tracks "Live to Tell the Tale" and "White Night Fantasy" are basically classic NW songs to me. I can't believe the recent Nuclear Blast reissue doesn't have these... glad I still have my Roadrunner copy. 5.) Dark Passion Play Ah yes, the first NW album I followed the development of, at least. At the time, when it came out, I loved it immediately and furiously defended Anette from The Haters™. There are a few songs on here that don't hold up as well as others but for the most part I still thoroughly enjoy it. I'm glad I got to experience the sheer epicness of "The Poet and the Pendulum" live! 6.) Wishmaster The title track was my first NW song. I was very confused when I first heard it, but also intrigued. I'd never heard anything quite like that before! That being said, when compared to the album that came before it, it's a bit underwhelming. I feel like Tarja's voice on this one isn't as warm and emotional as it is on "Oceanborn". It still has some great songs on it of course, like "Fantasmic", "Crownless", and "She Is My Sin". 7.) Endless Forms Most Beautiful Ah yes, the first album with Floor Jansen, who is of course one of the best vocalists on the face of the planet. It's too bad they didn't really show that off much here, though. I enjoy the album, don't get me wrong, but I felt almost baited and switched, considering the vocal acrobatics in After Forever and Revamp. This almost sounds more like it's written for Anette. Still, I think "Alpenglow" is one of their best songs, and I like most of it (except for the title track (and its lyric video)). 8.) Angels Fall First I honestly only like about half of this album if I'm being 100% honest. Mr. Holopainen's singing...uh, leaves a lot to be desired and I can see why they eventually hired Marco (and judging from what Tuomas himself has said, he's not fond of his singing on here either). Their sound was simply under developed on here and they were still trying to find themselves (and they certainly found themselves on the next album).

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Yes! I hope they share a few short clips from the studio in which you can actually hear bits of the music playing. I remember them doing that in the lead up to Imaginaerum, so uh...yeah. It'd be cool.
  10. Well, last Sunday I went to: Lagwagon w/Face to Face and MakeWar. I got in the pit for the first time in years and managed to bruise myself. Also, my legs were in pain for two days straight. My body decided to remind me I'm not 16 anymore. And this Sunday, I'm going to: DragonForce w/Dance With the Dead and Starkill. Before 2015, I didn't really pay that much attention to DF. However, seeing them put on a very fun and energetic performance opening for Kamelot (twice) kind of made me get into them. Time to see them a third time, but headlining this time.

    Nightwish albums missing from Spotify

    In the US, the first four albums are missing, but everything else is there. It's kind of frustrating, but at least "Decades" has some of those songs I suppose. In any case, I'm glad I've got them all on CD! Still, putting those albums on Spotify would make it easier to play them on the go (like when I'm out walking or something)...

    Lacuna Coil

    Wow, I'm absolutely loving this one! I don't think I've heard Cristina sing quite the way she does in that chorus before.
  14. Werewolf

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    The style is similar, but the sound is punchier, so I feel like I might like this one better.
