    After Forever

    Mark Jansen being fully responsible for that I loved how Floor was capable enough to mantain the philosophical and introspective themes, they just kept out the (anti)religious stuff. It also took me a few years (3, I guess) to get into AF, and it was also Floor's voice that didn't convince me back then. Of course, I just listened to "Energize Me" and "Emphasis". A friend of mine who happens to be a HUGE fan of Floor since AF times was pretty much insistant to make me listen Floor's real talent, so I gave Prison of Desire a chance and I was mindblown by all those outstanding vocal melodies and powerful tracks. True fact. Actually, I met a lot of non-metalheads who told me they sound exactly the same.... just because there's a female lead vocalist, a band doing some noise at the back, bombastic orchestra and some choir here and there (well, in Epica case would be some choir ELSEWHERE in any track). They can't even notice the difference between power/melodic metal from death metal, an epic latin choir from just a few instances of a choir saying nothing but "oh" (as in those few NW songs who features a choir), the song structure and don't even get me started with the lyrical content. Same goes for AF, except for a couple of songs in their last album.

    The Old Era

    No, there was some disagreement between both parties NW - Turunen/Cabuli. So they ended up uploading only a full instrumental version of GLS on Youtube as celebration of the 10th anniversary.

    I didn't have the slightest idea about it. Anyway, I'm not a NW collector so I don't really care.

    Hello from a Canadian fan!

    Welcome to the forum! Nice story. I can't recall reading someone finding NW through Anneke, except for Floor herself (well, Mark Jansen or someone else handed over her the Oceanborn album, but she knew The Gathering before). I think you have a long road ahead with the most improtant symphonic metal concerts : End of An Era, From Wishes to Eternity (NW), Black Symphony, The Silent Force Tour DVD (Within Temptation), We Will Take You With Us (Epica), and maybe After Forever's Pinkpop 2004 performance (not a DVD, but it's a good memory from a very young Floor Jansen).

    Decades World Tour 2018

    OK, I admit it: everytime I watch D&DDO all my attention goes to Floor and Marco. I can only spot Tuomas and Kai when the fast-tempo section comes. And when I'm finally at the end section "we shall cooome", it's like my attention just drops and I'm out of the song. And I guess that's why I've never seen Troy playing the guitar in THAT part. I just watched the Bloodstock performance and I heard a guitar that NEVER wasn't there for me, I was like "ok, that's new!!", then I saw Troy on stage. Has he always been there for this particular song?

    Amaranthe

    It's my favourite track from the new album, so far. I'm glad it had its own video.

    Within Temptation II

    I don't know how Universal works with other artists, but Tarja has gone through similar awkward situations with them. From release delay to new tracks replacing others (I mean, we could've had "Love to Hate" in 2010 instead of IFI), video shootings she wasn't confortable with, and actually not distributing physical copies of WLB in countries like France. Maybe they don't like symphonic metal women so much.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    He should ask Floor for some advice on that

    Yes, it was the same clipped version.

    A while ago (like 8 years ago), I was a GIF addict and made a lot of GIF images from videos I liked. Like this one and Tarja's weird dancing

    Arch Enemy

    Oh, come on. There wasn't any circus/drama thing since Leave's Eyes/Live conflict. Let us have some fun with this one.

    Arch Enemy

    You got a point there. Even though the woman already got what she wanted (attention, likes, followers, clients, etc.), he could've asked for it to be removed first. Instead he went to the other option: ok, use it, but only if you pay me. It's his art in first place, so I think he's on his right to make any reasonable claim for his work. Sounds like mafia to me. Or even childish, like "Ok, you win, but we won't be friends anymore". Not proffessional at all, imo.

    Arch Enemy

    Actually, not. The guy was unfairly banned from working with agencies or promoters related to AE under the reason of trying to get paid for his own work? That's not right. Exactly. Also because this is not the first time Angela reacts this way. I don't know, some breathing techniques, meditation before replying an email? None of this would've happened if Marta from Thunderball Clothing had read the email PROPERLY. At least, she recognized her mistake. Come on, she just read "alissa", "$500" and "copyright" and immediately forwarded the email to AE?? The problem was with her since the very first second, AE shouldn't have got involved in the matter, but they did it in the worst way ever.
