    Epica

    Delain is doing the same thing sense Moonbathers it seems. First Moonbathers then there DVD now and EP then a new album. Epica THP, EP and now a new EP this year for the rest of the world.

    Dimmu Borgir

    Might have more to do with fans who like Symphonic black metal and don't see the black metal side of it. I fail to see the problem when it's still close to symphonic black metal.

    Delain

    So Delain will be putting out any EP this fall before they there new album comes out next year.

    Amaranthe

    How are they able to have last so long on long tours? Rush, Sabbath, etc have all been on long long tour and many bands from the 60s, 70s, 80s, are stilling going strong. So for Elize to blame the label or management. Either it's something you can do or you can't. The label and management are there to make sure your name gets out there and that the band, etc can make money so as to make there music for everyone.

    Amaranthe

    You are missing a key point look at bands like Rush, Black Sabbath, Iron Madien, and so on. This guy was not cut out for being on a label and should have just made music for himself. The job of a label and management is to make sure you are making money. So when a band like Rush started and got a label and management they did there job for them. To make sure they sold. Not ever one who makes music should be on labels nor should they be touring and so on.

    Ummm this whole thing of bashing managers. Um there job is to make sure the bands are making money and getting booked on good tours so they can make more money. I mean ever bands dream is to one day get to the point where they don't have to keep going to there day job. That was my big problem with Dianne. Don't join a band that wants to get a bigger and don't bash management for doing what there job is. That's just low. It says that all other bands like Delain, Stitched up Heart or New Years Day have no right to go on massive two year long tours. Well how should they pick new fans? Pull a Wintersun and sit on your butt for 8 years then get mad at your label for not making you a studio when you took 8 years to put out a new album. It took Hammerfall like tens to come back to the USA and Canada due in part to they did not make money and could not justify it nor could there management to there families. It's about money because no money no new ALBUMS. So to Elize you better be making money because that's how you make a new album is with money.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    You are down playing the amount of people in the USA and Canada that did get on board with Nightwish with there early stuff though.

    Epica

    Well I would say part of the change is when they got Arien and then Isaac. Both from a melodic death metal band. Add to it Mark liking that death metal sound it they were just going to get heavier and heavier. MaYaN was Mark answer of having death metal with out turning Epica into full on death metal. And yes TPA is very much in the realm of After Forevers first two albums. Which that very first AF album is much heavier at times then most would think.

    Xandria

    Uh Some of those bands are not even around any more The Sings of Thy Beloved was more into a doom metal side with a female singer but they ended a long time ago. Elis stopped years ago. After Forever is no longer around. Charlotte does not use the opera sounding voice. Edenbridge was never using the opera voice and is not even the same as Nightwish. Half of those bands are really just gothic metal. The other half I know nothing about.

    Epica

    I was able to hear the Epica vs Attack on Titan songs. Epica has just killed all other symphonic metal bands yes even Nightwish. My god give them a movie soundtrack Epica stand alone right now as the best symphonic metal band out there.

    Epica

    TPA and CTO had real string cellos and violins on those albums look in the book lit. TDC though RFTD did not.

    Delain

    As of now only for the SA tour. Won't know if he will be there for the NA tour yet.
  13. Razorclaw

    Delain

    Meh to each other one Charlotte is my favorite singer so yeah Meh.

    Xandria

    What's the right way? If she did not like all the touring then she joined the wrong band. Unless you are just doing it as a hobby never join a band that wants to tour and get bigger. When shows are cancelled it's not just hurting the headline act it's hurting the support acts local acts venues and so on.

    Xandria

    But Amberian Dawn just as Delain or Stitched Up Hear or Flyleaf and heck Metallica are all bands that have people with egos. It's just they are people with egos who all had the same dream and views on what they wanted to do with the music. They don't fight about it. The fact that that Marco and Lisa would fight for the music that they were making he wanted to go one way with it she wanted to go another is egos clashing. It's not about being friends it's about being able to keep your egos in check. Think of a band a sports team. Many of those players are not all hanging out after no they go back to there family and friends. Sure some may hang out but for the most part they don't. When Epica is done touring for the there new album and EP he is it going to go hey guys let's hang out. No he is going to go back to Italy. Simone she is going back to Germany and so on. The thing with Xandria is that you have five people with egos clashing and all on different pages one on page 10 another on page 100 another on the last chapter and another who may not have even started the book. Xandria and Sirenia go through members the way Death did and the way Iced Earth does. With Iced Earth Stu Block will either end up leaving at some point do to Jon Schaffer's ego or Jon will kick him out. Chuck Schuldiner look how many people came in went. Sure he was a nice guy but when it came to the music and the band he had an ego. So when you look at Sirenia I mean Morten Veland has any ego and he wants things his way there is a reason he was kicked out of Tristania.
