    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    A new date was announced for TDE in Stockholm. Their tour looks like: October 6th, 2018 - Tokyo, JP October 7th, 2018 - Osaka, JP October 13th, 2018 - Stockholm, SE I wish they could squeeze a few dates in Brazil too, but I guess the next step is the second album.

    Within Temptation

    Loving this new phase of the band. It's different from their other stuff, but still is Within Temptation no matter what. It's such a funny feeling because at the same time I can hear new elements on The Reckoning, there's also a similar vibe and feeling connecting me with TSF or The Heart of Everything, I don't know. And somehow their new aesthetics reminded me the After Forever's Invisible Circles era, perhaps it's their blue clothes.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Since São Paulo is going to be the first one of the South American tour, I am hoping they will play a couple of surprises on the set. My girlfriend loves The Siren and she's hoping for that song in particular, but as I said to her, I find it unlikely for them to play this one because it worked more like a regular song in the past. The same goes for Dark Chest of Wonders, but I would love to hear it because it'll be my first concert as well and it is easily one of my favourite songs. Nemo, Amaranth and Bless the Child have a special place in my heart once they were the first three ones I got to hear from Nightwish, but the last one is kinda of retired on this Decades tour. I would also not mind if they could replace Come Cover Me by Wishmaster, Planet Hell or another epic in its place. Is such a pale song for me and does not work too well live in my opinion. Anyway, I am really looking forward to the whole experience in general. This has been my definitive favourite band for the last six years, in which part of that time I got to live Nightwish every day. Their music was with me in a lot of difficult moments, happy moments, got me through a lot of experiences. So this may sounds overly dramatic for a few, but it's a kind of spiritual connection. Having this people in front of me playing my favourite music will be epic and will mark one my favourite days ever, I am sure.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Nice words from Tarja about the guys in Nightwish. As she said, time heals. Not only this, she mentions in this same interview that she's very satisfied and happy with the current moment of her career. I am so happy for her too, to have achivied what she fought for. Source:

    Ask Tuomas [OPEN]

    How is the feeling of playing old classic NW songs? It's all more about the nostalgic charm of playing them again or you still feel the same feelings of when they were created and if you are connected to their lyrics. Whom was the decision to remove Ike Vil's voice from the dialogues of The Kinslayer? I loved the old version, but equally enjoy Marco's performance. Are you going to play The Phantom of the Opera ever again? Do you consider playing a commemorative concert featuring the former members and a live orchestra someday? Can you give us any glimpse of the upcoming NW album? Sonority, theme, lyrics, concept. Please, something. Thank you for your time dear Tuomas, see you in São Paulo next September. Love you maestro!

    Ask Floor [OPEN]

    Was your decision to change operatic parts on some songs like The Kinslayer and Sacrament of Wilderness to a more raw and aggressive tone? I personally loved your approach on the dialogue part of Kinslayer, sounds much more vivid. Which dynamics in your voice would you like to use on the upcoming Nightwish album? Is it possible for us to get some solo concerts of Floor Jansen performing the best of After Forever, ReVamp and Nightwish (your era's material)? Silly question: would you become a blonde again? I think you looks really pretty with blonde hair. Which kind of music or bands are you listening recently? Please consider suggest some for us. Thanks for your time dear Floor, see you in São Paulo next September.

    Within Temptation

    Wow, I didn't see it coming. Such a very bombastic song, it reminds me the old days of TSF and The Heart of Everything but much more heavy. I immediately loved it by the first listening, can't wait for the full mastered version to come out and with a video please! Sharon's operatic voice at the end is astonishing.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I definitely prefer Wishmaster rather than Amaranth, so that was a good choice. And the girl playing the accordion added a nice element to the song. But as many have said, Floor's operatic vocals sounds really great and clear right now. Don't know if that has something to do with the body changes involving her motherhood or the natural aging, very likely yes. Can't wait to see them in September, it's only two months far away. It will be the first concert of the Latin American tour, so hopefully a few surprises on the set.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Can't wait for the Finnish show! I think they're probably going to film this one or Hartwall for some upcoming release, which would be great. By the way, anyone knows if the show at Wacken will be streamed online? I would love to have a Showtime, Storytime vibe again.

    Anette Olzon

    Is there any solid info about their second album? I would love for this to be released sooner than later. About Alyson Avenue, I think she's acting more a like a guest singer for this year's shows. Anyway it's good to see Anette making stuff here and there on her musical carreer.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Come Cover Me is the only song I don't like too much on the setlist. Amaranth could also leave and I would not care. But seriously, there's nothing to complain about this tour, everything seems so perfect and in harmony. About Jukka, I don't think he will show up on any show of this cycle, however I think it will be a good moment for the band to clarify their drummer's position after the Decades tour.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Just bought a pair of VIP tickets for me and my girlfriend for the São Paulo show. I am so happy because it will be my first time and I can't already hold my excitement. I read somewhere that there will also be meet & greet sessions for the fans. How awesome is that? September could be tomorrow and I wouldn't mind.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    I prefer much more Floor's rendition of Storytime than Anette's. I can't really stand her voice on that song in particular. But the rest of the album is pretty much flawless because of her performance. One song I would love to hear under Floor's recorded vocals is Last Ride of the Day, sounds so much vivid with her. I think Poet and the Pendulum, Sahara, 7 Days to the Wolves and a few others from DPP would be perfect with her too, even though I love Anette in there. Nice mix of Last Ride on YouTube with Floor's vocals:

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Speaking about a possible DVD, I don't think there's a big chance of it being planned on this current tour. They have just released less than a year and a half ago their biggest live-package in the entire career filmed in two massive concerts. Obviously I wound't mind getting more live material, especially when there are so many rare/old songs involved. But at the same time, I don't feel very much the need to have it now if it will be filmed in a way so similar to the past ones. I think I would rather wait for the 25th anniversary or something in this vein with guests, former members and the long-awaited "orchestra show" (sounds cliché at this point, but still epic); and obviously new songs for Floor. Therefore I don't find the idea that much interesting right now if the order is to have I Want My Tears Back or Nemo again. We already have two live versions for that kind of stuff.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    If I remember correctly, Tuomas mentioned in a interview that they intend to increase even more the regular sound of the band and the instruments, in order to make the sound more organic. I believe it's valid, as long as they didn't ditch out completely their trademark cinematographic and symphonic sound. Century Child and EFMB are good references to how I would like the next album to sound. And please, more operatic and powerful vocals from Floor as in the After Forever days. We need it. Anyway it's a long road to 2020. Guess it should be released in the spring season like EFMB. I wish they could bring it to the end of 2019, though. Tuomas already has six songs written and it's been a long period without new music. At that time, Floor will have approximately 7.5 years as the Nightwish vocalist and only two albums with her name, which is a shame.
