    About the Élan thing. I actually prefer the simple honesty of Élan rather than the overrated grandiosity of TGSOE which gets tiresome after a few minutes. It's a long song, not a great song.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    The band within the genre that I can think of which I really like the overall visuals (videoclips, stage visuals, album covers, etc.), is Within Temptation. I really think Sharon den Adel has a clear view of what she wants and in that regard she is a really good art director to her band. But also I said I am really displeased with visuas in general within symphonic metal, it being such an image-driven genre. I mostly think many pop acts (one I can think of right now is Lorde) can really teach the metal scene a thing or two about visuals. (I am expecting this comment to come back with hatred since all of us metalheads are supposed to hate pop lol). Also as it was said before, inspiration coul be drawn from Cirque du Soleil, from some Broadway shows too, there are so many good references when it comes to art direction. My main problem with NW and their visual universe (or brand identity if you will) is their lack of quality. Of course I prefer that they invest more in musical quality than in visual quality, but visual quality is not so expensive if you work with the right people who can manage the right quality.

    Contrary to what you think, I think Nightwish should step up their visual game because their latest videoclips and live DVD suck, and these screen look so 80s and also so unprofessional. I'ts okay if you're going for a retro aesthetic but this is clearly the band working with amateur people. Actually is someone deciding they should spend less money on decent art direction for their shows + albums + promo material? Dark Passion Play was the last album + promotion videos + promotion tour that was somewhat decent visually. After The Islander's amazing video, there were no more decent audiovisual pieces. Just a really sloppy feature film with a terribly cheap looking videoclip for Storytime for the Imaginaerum campaign, and then possibly the worst video the band has ever produced, for Endless Forms Most Beautiful. Élan is terrible too. I used to be really into the whole Nightwish aesthetic, but they are really asleep. Hoping for a improvement on the next album since this tour has clearly not improved in that way and the low budget completely cliché and corny visuals on the screens speak tons about that.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Marco definitely hasn't been growling for a long time, and currently his "heavy" voice sounds really crappy for me. Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean sounds reallllly weird the way he sings it now, so I think we should keep him away from that strange drunk-guy-at-the-bar-at-3-am style which is ruining all of his parts. Just give the man a break and let Floor do both the singing and the growling.

    Then I suggest you start listening to the catalogue and reading the lyrics carefully!

    It's weird how some of us (like me) probably instantly relate Nightwish to the dead boy and his whole universe, and for others (the newer fans) probably Nightwish relates more to the latest topics Tuomas has decided to work on the albums, huh? I mean, I have a tattoo that says "Ocean Soul" but that's probably not representative of Nightwish for a lot of fans, while for me Ocean Soul is literally the meaning of Nightwish.

    I have been listening to them since 2004 and all I can say is I love how they have advanced. I don't think EFMB is their pinnacle, indeed I think it has many lows, probably Imaginaerum has some of the most interesting stuff for me. But I really enjoy the old stuff as it triggers nostalgia in me and that's what I fell in love with, but I also really love the new stuff as they keep on going and I love what they are doing.

    I understand your fear about the attendance to the Decades shows in SA, but also this is a retrospective show and since they will play all the old songs, even the close-minded fans who left them after Tarja was fired, will come back. I'm sure that many, many, MANY more people than you expect will attend.

    I did recognize the irony, I just didn't find it funny.

    You think it's boring, I think it's amazing, and I loved it. Also I am tired of Tuomas just producing layers and layers and layers of sound on top of each other and pretending that the more layers you have, the better the song is (I'm looking at you, TGSOE). This is subtle and each sound has its proper place. Oh and honey, crossing the Rubicon is an idiom and has an actual meaning. Google stuff!

    Honestly I liked this album a lot more than EFMB. It made me cry several times on the first listen, absolutely adored it.

    I have to agree that I long for the touchy-feely fantasy-filled Nightwish lyrics. Even though in that regard I think Imaginaerum is the pinacle of Nightwish's lyrics, especially Song of Myself. It is full of feelings, yet in a way more mature light than in past albums.

    In this particular song I think she should lean more towards Tarja's vocal approach, instead of her more belt-ish technique. Floor can handle many techniques and I think this song could benefit more of Floor's head voice and lyrical technique.
