    The Floor thread

    I love it! I love how it's sort of "light", not lots of chug guitars, and her voice is divine. Floor is so amazing

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    What Hevein said is almost exactly how it is for me as well.

    Epica

    I love Arien's songs, they have a special feel to them.

    What happened to the jet stream last summer?

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    That's very interesting, I didn't know any of that.
  6. Eilenna

    What are you watching?

    Good Omens. I recommend! It's a beautiful rendition of the book. Love the actors, perfect chemistry. I was totally immersed, with doesn't happen all that often.

    Poepmonsters Pub

    I bought a portable AC a couple of weeks ago, just in case this summer gets as bad as last year. Summer 2018 was nearly unbearable. I was "glad" to be working nearly all summer, at least at work we have AC (still got vey hot though) but the nights were horrible.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I think her singing in this video is a step in the right direction, I think she sounds pretty good.

    Ayreon

    Hey that's Ruben and Jord! If I recall correctly these two pretty much wrote the music for Wild Card together, with input from Floor and Joost. This is very exciting!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I think the way they work is that Tuomas makes the first rough demo with keyboards playing all instruments, then the whole band work on arranging the songs and make the second demo together. So Emppu plays guitars on the second demo. And Tuomas doesn't write exact parts/solo parts for the other members. Band members arrange their own parts in collaboration with the whole band, and Tuomas has the final say. He writes the vocal melodies, but they are then interprtated by the singers and may change a bit as well. At least the last record was created this way. Source on this is various interviews with Tuomas over the years

    Epica

    I would normally not speculate. But I don't think Simone is straight. I mean, that's just my assumption. (Not based on just this picture.) I don't think she's ever said anything about it though? But you shouldn't label other people, and I mean it doesn't matter. But has she ever talked about it? Whatever she identifies as, it's all great. And obviously she's happily married to a man, so. Whatever! It's a cute picture.

    Game of Thrones

    It was so terribly terribly rushed. I'll try to write down my thoughts about it, but that's the most important feeling just now after the completion of this. That and some beautiful acting from in particular Dany and Jon's actors.

    Symphony X
