    I am really looking forward to it! Especially since they wrote in their newsletter, that it will be their heaviest album.

    Nightwish Album Rankings 2019

    At the moment I would rank it like this. The first and last two places are very clear and stabile over the last years, but the four albums in the middle change from time to time. 1. Dark Passion Play (my first NW album nearly 12 years ago. Still love it with all my heart. Nostalgia pure.) 2. Endless Forms Most Beautiful 3. Once (up from 5) 4. Century Child (down from 3) 5. Imaginaerum (up from 6) 6. Oceanborn (down from 4) 7. Wishmaster 8. Angels Fall First

    First single from Timo Tolkki´s with Anneke: Sounds still cheesy as hell, but better than "Design the Century" IMO (poor Floor, who sang such a kitschy song).

    I really like the song. Mariangela has grown on me over the last years. Nowadays she is one of my favourite singers. She got such a special timbre in her voice and I love her temperament!

    Decades World Tour 2018

    According to this article, the show in Sao Paulo/Brazil was planned to be filmed for the dvd, not the show in Colombia (maybe bonus material?). I am confused. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/nightwish-sao-paulo-and-buenos-aires-concerts-to-be-filmed-for-upcoming-dvd/

    On the song "Trinoxtion" it is former fiddle player Meri Tadic, who spoke this part also on the album "Slania". The rest is spoken by Fabienne, for example "Ancus". I must say I really like the album. At first I feared that it will be not as heavy as the previous ones, but they surprised me. Songs like "Mine is the Fury", "Worship" and "Threefold Death" are brutal, dark and sinister. I love it! And also the new guitarist Jonas Wolf has brought some new vibes like djents, solos and metalcore-elements, which are integrated well in the folk sound. Eluveitie sounds now a bit more "fresh" and evolved than on "Origins" (which I still enjoy very much, but it brought nothing new at all).

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    Anette is not part of Tolkki´s Avalon 3 (thankfully). So it must be another new project. But Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania) and Anneke van Giersbergen will be guests. Such a waste of talent, I fear. But maybe he has learned from the past albums (I doubt it.) http://bravewords.com/news/timo-tolkki-s-avalon-to-release-return-to-eden-album-in-june-first-details-revealed

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    So, Anette works on a new "secret project" besides The Dark Element´s second album (which is currently in the mix). Maybe it could be Timo Tolkkis "Avalon part 3"? Because Frontiers reposted Anette´s message abvoe: Hopefully - if my suggestion is true - the songwriting will be better than on the last "Avalon" album, even Floor´s good vocal pefomance could not make it enjoyable.

    Ex Libris

    I agree. Their first two albums are not my cup of tea, at all. But "Ann 1+ 2" are a pleasure to listen! They have a progressive touch, but in my opinion are not to forced or complex like on their previous releases. Which woman will be the protagonist in Chapter 3? My guess is:

    Nightwish Off Topic

    Maybe it is a co-headlining (or NW as a special guest) stadium tour with a major american band like Evanescence? That would be the next big step for Nightwish in North America, but I might be to optimistic.
  11. Maybe she parted ways with her boyfriend before the tour (or after)? However, in the "Wishmaster"-booklet (ca. April/May 2000), she writes: ,,Janne. Thank you for your support and love. You are the light of my life". Her presumed fiancé Janne is also mentioned in "Oceanborn"-booklet. (,,And my dearest Janne. When I had rough time you were always there for me. I love you very much.")

    That song/remix is horrible! Anette has started her vocal recordings yesterday:

    The Old Era

    If I remenber correctly. Anette wrote an e-mail and asked Tuomas before she played the songs (I think only twice) in her solo gigs.
