    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I much prefered written album-related reports like they did for Once and DPP.

    Anneke van Giersbergen

    That documentary is wonderful, thank you! It reminded me how gorgeous she is. I still cannot make myself like Vuur, though.

    After Forever

    I don't think Sander would have ever agreed to AF continuing without him.

    Wow, that was really a gem! Reminded me what an awesome song Beneath is!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Goldfinger fits her like a pig's leg, to be honest. I couldn't believe she released such a terrible rendition of her voice.

    PLASTIC EUKARIOTE - 2018 Forum Awards

    Thank you huney for the whole effort and counting and choosing appropriate songs! And big thank you to all my fans, you are the reason why I am here, this is all for you! Stay tuned for new projects in this year!
  7. It seems she had known Marcelo all along, and plotted to have him manage NW tours in South America, so he could have the pretext to marry her and then destroy the band. Poor Tuomas, did not notice how Tarja almost gave away the plan in this interview.

    Dreams about Nightwish

    Last night I dreamt Nightwish were performing a brand new song with some strange name in Belgrade, for whatever reason. It was broadcast live on the national TV, but, as they were showing subtitles to the song on the screen, somebody from the political opposition apprently messed up with the subtitles, and put anti-government slogans instead of actual lyrics. The performance was cut off in the middle, and NW was escorted from the country. These protests in Serbia are really doing their job to my psyche, I guess.
  9. Interesting, Tarja was engaged at the time. Oh, poor Tuomas, never made it to become a biologist.

    After Forever

    Yeah, acted parts of IC are not the best kind of radio-drama material you can get, but otherwise, the albums is superb, precisely because of brutally straightforward, yet eloquent lyrics. I find that Floor truly blossomed lyric-wise after Mark left AF. Before that, she just seemed to be looking up weird wannabe-fancy words in a random English dictionary, whereas Mark really tired me with his rants on narrow-mindedness of Islam. I kind of got it after the first two songs, no need to continue the whole Smothering saga till I got smothered. And music-wise, as well, no matter how much I like Decipher, Circles are still a giant compared to it. But then again, I could never grow to appreciate Epica, no matter how much I tried. And regarding Marc-AF relations, it is funny now to remember back when I was a member of AF forum around 2005-06, Marc joined the forum, and him and Sander opened a thread where they would together share episodes from the early history of the band. Needless to say, after only a few posts, some rather bizzare things were revealed (they first noticed Floor by her boobs, the rivalry between Marc and Sander was so great that one of the (forgot who it was) was secretly re-recording the other´s guitar parts for Prison of Desire session), so that apparently somebody got hurt by all these public revelations, so the thread died out.

    After Forever

    Invisible Circles is one of my favourite albums ever, precisely beause of the concept and how masterfully Floor has grasped this topic through her lyrics.

    The Old Era

    I discovered them in 2002, in a very mundane way - a friend of mine was wearing a T-shirt with NW promo photo from Wishmaster period, so I complimented the boobs of the girl on the photo (I was 15 back then, mind you), and then this friend told me it was one of her favourite bands, and eventually gave me AFF and CC to listen to. My previous experiences with metal were restricted to occasional Iron Maiden and Metallica, so really this opened a new world for me. Though I never became a metlhead, I did sort of start building my music taste with NW.

    The Floor thread

    A great interview, thanks for posting it! although I must say I am not really sold on her reasoning behind eating wild meet while being a vegetarian. Her argumentation is a bit illogical, because torturing horses in Eastern Europe bothered her (I personally don´t know anyone who eats horsemeat on regular basis, and nowadays in bigger part of Europe the animals that are most often slaughtered, such as piglets or cows are put to sleep before being killed). And if man should not play god with feeding animals hormones, I don´t see why he should also play god with deciding how many wild deer can survive in nature. And even if that ecological hunt had their justification in science, it still doesn´t imply these killed deer should then be eaten, rather than simly buried or burned. Yeah, bizzare, discussion. But thanks for the interview!

    PLASTIC EUKARIOTE - 2018 Forum Awards

    As a matter of protest against hypocritical and prudish rules and decisions of mod/admin team (but also because I did not pay that much attention to discussions here, apart from a handful of topics), I will only vote in one category this year: The AWOLLY (Absence Without Official Leave) - award........which member(s) have you missed the most in or during 2018? @some_dude_on_the_interwebs - you can really tell his absence from this forum, and on a very negative note. Not to mention that the affair that provoked his resignation was an overblown, ridiculous abuse of political correctness (and trust me, I am a strong proponent of PC in general, but what happened in this case was just a perverted and whimsical interpretation of that) which retarded the whole atmosphere on the board and left us without one of the most, if not the most prolific member. Dude, if you read this, come back please because they know not what they are doing. That much from me for tthis year. More luck next time around.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    It is funny how she even stopped correcting journalists who mispronounce her name.
