    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    They spoke heavily about the audience in the press release so I hope I can hear myself scream. And I did scream.

    Also because we expect perfection and attention to detail from NW because we have grown used to opening each of their booklets and getting lost in the details while marvelling at the music which is perfectly enhanced by beautiful aesthetics? I just hope they have wisely spent all of that money they saved in this cover, on an amazing debut music video for their next album.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    It's lame how people still bash pop in a band that's mainly metal but has a founding member that has clearly stated many times that he likes pop music and even went as far as saying that Nightwish should not be defined by a single genre and that it will feed off of any genres necessary to convey its message. Also, pop is much bigger than what whoever commented this has in mind when thinking about pop music. Bashing pop is so old already. Back on topic but slightly related to my previous observation regarding pop: I agree that NW should probably treat such topics with a bit more depth and nuance, not everything in life is I HATE RELIGION AND I HATE POP. A grayscale exists and it should be celebrated and spoken of and written about and discussed about in forums.

    I think they don't release DVD anymore, everything is BluRay now, right? Regarding the artwork... meh. I am usually pleasantly surprised with Nightwish's artworks even if their latest music videos are really really cringey. But this artwork looks so weird to me. The galaxy is a photo taken from ShutterStock, the circle with the miscellaneous is just a vector (sometimes less is more, but just when that less is well used, not the case here), and the owl... Is it a photo? Digital illustration? Don't know, it's just so weird. But I am really happy about what's inside of that since I was at the show and I can only remember how amazing it was and I hope that shows in the final editing.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    exactly. I am not religious but I do believe there is a higher power. I just think of religion as I think of any other form of human institution that grows so big it loses its main purpose and ends up becoming a means towards mostly monetary or power-related ends. How war ties in to this sort of behavior is also interesting. How we lose our humanity while striving to become more and more powerful and the nuances of technological advancement as something positive or also negative. Human nature, to put it simply, is what interests me the most about the approach they had on EFMB. And as much as I do love Thomas's lyrics I think most of the lyrics regarding these subjects in EFMB are quite reductive. But I also believe that EFMB was a good starting point. Maybe even the poem in Song of Myself was a starting point for this, which tackled human nature in a much more mature and magnanimous way which I thoroughly enjoyed and actually brought me to tears. So, yeah, I am hoping to find more of this and written with much more nuance. PD: For anyone interested in this sort of writing I think the singer AURORA, as far as she is from the metal genre and at her very young age, has managed to pen some beautiful lyrics around these topics. You should check her out!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Agreed to everything you said guys. I meant I like "Weak Fantasy" but I think it's a bit superficial, un the end It only scratches the surface of the religious theme and it doesn't really reflect the many nuances of the topic. And I would be appalled if the whole album was about this. But I would really appreciate some deeper sociological stuff. Maybe how we have tried to become God and ruined Earth in the process is what the first single is about? Troy as King of the Ashes?

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I hope that the next album isn't thematically bashing religion. I get that religion has harmed scientific research, manipulated Innocents in the name of faith just to get revenue and political leverage, and also brainwashed most of western society with fantastic literature (besides when they try to prove those sacred texts are actual historical facts they try to use science but hey, they are also against it...?). I get all this, but we know this. I know religion sucks but a whole religion is bad-themed album would bore the hell out of me.

    That designer has already worked for Floor before. Besides, it makes sense the designer cannot disclose the outfit details if it was actually created for the NW music video (hence they refer to Floor as "the client"). Furthermore, Troy's outfit clearly matches this color palette and style. Also I am beyond excited they chose to work with Stobe again, Ville's quality of work was really low for what's expected of Nightwish. But Stobe's eye in a 2019 technical setting is really, really promising! I only hope this isn't an acoustic album.

    List of Nightwish songs you've heard live

    So, here's my list. Note that I started listening to the band in 2005 months before they announced Tarja's departure so unfortunately I never saw the band live with that lineup. I did attend a Tarja concert but she played a medley of Nightwish songs in which she mainly sings Ever Dream, but I didn't add that here because I never heard her play any Nightwish songs per sé. I also listed if either Anette or Floor sang the song and how many times each. The concerts are: · Buenos Aires November 21 2008 · Cologne 17 March 2009 · Buenos Aires 15 December 2012 · Buenos Aires 2 October 2015 · Buenos Aires 30 September 2018 Bye Bye Beautiful (x1 Anette) Whoever Brings the Night (x1 Anette) The Siren (x2 Anette) Dead to the World (x2 Anette) Amaranth (x2 Anette - x2 Floor) Symphony of Destruction (x1) The Islander (x2 Anette - x1 Floor) The Poet and the Pendulum (x2 Anette) Come Cover Me (x1 Anette - x1 Floor) Dark Chest of Wonders (x2 Anette - x1 Floor) While Your Lips Are Still Red (x1 Anette) Sahara (x2 Anette) Wishmaster (x1 Anette - x2 Floor) Wish I Had an Angel (x2 Anette - x2 Floor) 7 Days to the Wolves (x1 Anette - x1 Floor) Romanticide (x1 Anette) Dead Boy's Poem (x1 Anette - x1 Floor) Nemo (x1 Anette - x3 Floor) The Escapist (x1 Anette) Ghost Love Score (x1 Anette - x3 Floor) Storytime (x1 Floor) Scaretale (x1 Floor) I Want My Tears Back (x3 Floor) The Crow, the Owl and the Dove (x1 Floor) Last of the Wilds (x1) Ever Dream (x2 Floor) Over the Hills and Far Away (x1 Floor) Song of Myself (x1 Floor) Last Ride of the Day (x2 Floor) Shudder Before the Beautiful (x1 Floor) Yours Is an Empty Hope (x1 Floor) She Is My Sin (x1 Floor) My Walden (x1 Floor) Élan (x2 Floor) Weak Fantasy (x1 Floor) Stargazers (x1 Floor) Sleeping Sun (x1 Floor) The Greatest Show on Earth (x2 Floor) End of All Hope (x1 Floor) 10th Man Down (x1 Floor) Gethsemane (x1 Floor) Sacrament of Wilderness (x1 Floor) Deep Silent Complete (x1 Floor) Elvenpath (x1 Floor) The Carpenter (x1 Floor) The Kinslayer (x1 Floor) Devil & the Deep Dark Ocean (x1 Floor) Slaying the Dreamer (x1 Floor)

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I was at the Buenos Aires gig and for some reason I never wrote my short review. I don't really want to write anything other than: Ghost Love Score. I have been to 5 Nightwish concerts and have seen it performed every single time, by both Anette and Floor (3 times with the Floorgasm), and it just gets to me everytime, I find msyelf crying every single time they play it! I just can't believe it's always the highlight of the night for me. Also, TGSOE produces the same impact for me, specially the "us, sleeping" phrase. I burst into tears with that one and the "we were here".

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I don't know, I feel like Tuomas implements electronic sounds in a very uninteresting way. I hope that if he does in the next album, it actually doesn't sound like a cheap trance dance track. There are so many beautiful and subtle ways of making electronic music sound beautiful, cunning, etc. Who knows, he might surprise us.
