    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Wait whaaaaaat??? I thought they were going to record the demos during the NW camp on June/July, just like the last time. And we have no news regarding the Decades DVD. I'm so confused now.

    Within Temptation II

    So you got the chance to hear "The Promise" live. I read a lot of comments on the FB group complaining about it being replaced by Covered By Roeses. I'm not a big fan of Mother Earth songs, I just like them, but I love every Hydra song... so it won't be a problem to me if they want to play CBR in South America . I've already heard The Promise when they came here in 2014. Anyway, the US tour was a blast, I followed the whole tour through the FB group and I couldn't believe all the US fans were lucky enough to have Smash Into Pieces + In Flames + WT all in one night. More than once I thought of packing my stuff and fly to the US to experience the tour first hand.

    Beast In Black

    I agree with you. It seems it was recorded to show off his vocal skills, which are awesome but this song.... I feel GLS needs to be sung in a very specific way, almost as precised as an opera aria. Not THAT technical, but you need to respect those very well defined moments. The first part of the song is all about nostalgia, you don't need to get full head voice, you just need to convey the nostalgia feeling in the most subtle way as possible. Even Floor doesn't use full head voice on the chorus section, only at the end of it (-will be for you). The "leave me home" part was a bit exagerated for my taste. The "redeem me into childhood" section was pretty good, and the Floorgasm was great! The combination of different vocal styles was really impressive, imo. I'm sorry if I sounded as if I'd written the song or been the original singer of it I think Tarja did an excellent choice for every section of the song, and Floor was capable of noticing those subtleties or changes between sections and reached the same level of interpretation with no need of being a copycat or sounding exactly like Tarja. What the guy can do with his voice is just outstanding and I'll never be able to do what he does in this lifetime EVER, but you know, this song... I feel like the magic is gone as soon as you don't convey the right feeling. That's beyond technique.

    Myrath - Metal music from the desert

    Wow. The video looks stunning, I'm really loving the two videos, the story, the SFX, everything. The music is quite good. It seems it's gonna be an enjoyable album.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    They mentioned the "guerrilla-style" approach for the Wembley show and a traditional approach for the show in Tampere. If I remember correcly...

    From what I've read, Twan Driessen from the band Hibakusha recorded the growlings for "Art Kills" (you can find them on FB). The growlings in Hunter's Moon I believe that must be Timo, because he does it live and it sounds very similar. No one else is credited as guest on the Wikipedia page for the EP.

    Within Temptation II

    That's not a problem to me at all. They can do any style they want to, if I like it then I'll buy it. Maybe that's why I love Hydra that much, because it's not just a particular genre, there's a lot of experimentation going on, the album has no certain direction, it's just a bunch of songs where they try new stuff, radio-friendly stuff, mixed with some WT traditional elements. Too many duets, well yeah but it's like they made it up for it as they only had one or two guests in their entire discography back then. I guess this is just a matter of taste, as in the previous quote, because that's not the best song of the album imo. I love Tarja and WT and the idea of doing a song together, but I was expecting something even more symphonic metal style for it, as in TSF or THOE, where Tarja would've fit even better. I agree with you on this, but I still can enjoy the song anyway. But I was hoping for something more epic too, for sure.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    When is she going to Romania? If it's by July/August you might be one of the first people to listen to the new songs live :O

    After Forever

    Of course she might have had her personal reasons for not doing so. Or maybe she couldn't keep the name because that problem with the record label. Anyway, it's just a mere "what if" question for me. If she had kept the band's name with the guys from ReVamp (inc. Joost), the story would've been completely different and maybe she could've benefit from that.

    After Forever

    You made it sound as if they were a myth. But, yes, they were one of the strongest bands of the symphonic metal world that could actually top Nightwsh back then. I recently read about Panic! At The Disco band bio, and I was wondering what would've happened if Floor had stuck to the band's name and continued making music with other musicians (well, Joost would've stayed too) under the name of After Forever. PATD's vocalist said "why would I change the band's name if I never wanted to leave the band?" - he just collaborated with the songwriting and instrumentation, but he was mainly the lead singer, and the rest of the founding members left the band cause they wanted to, they were never fired. The situation is quite similar. In that hypothetical scenario, I'm not sure what would've happened to Nightwish. Dianne or Marcela stepping in?

    After Forever

    For sure. All kind of mixed feelings there. I looked it up with the Search bar and it seems that you saw the news, but you were gone when the links were posted the following days Then you respawned some months later haha. It was actually 4 years ago, maaan, time flies. I'm glad you came across the video. Amen brother.

    After Forever

    Uff... this happened like 3 years ago, IIRC. Here in the forum, someone from the Netherlands gave us the news that a Dutch TV website was uploading some whole episodes of old TV shows, and one of them included this gem for AF fans. It was streamed live, it was during the morning here in this side of the world, I remember that I woke up early just to watch it, and then it was uploaded on the website or that TV's Youtube Channel, I can't recall exactly. But it was great, I loved it. Are you sure you weren't here back then?

    After Forever

    I would've tried My Pledge with Laura Macrí instead, I can imagine that it'd sound similar to Floor's version. And Marcela in Follow In The Cry. Although Marcela's take on My Pledge was very impressive anyway. I liked it!

    Within Temptation II

    I meant as in a way to discover new music, instead of buying it, I'd listen to the song someone unauthorized uploaded it on their own personal channel. Back then (2010-2013) I also downloaded a huge amount of videoclips (official and HD fan live footage) to record them in a DVD so I could see them on the TV screen, which was a typical 90's tv set with no USB entry or anything like that, don't even mention internet connection The new techonology arrived a little bit too late to home. And iTunes too. I was planning to set up an account there and start dowlonading albums/songs there. For now, Spotify does the job. But, yeah, I would've liked to contribute with my two cents by downloading Resist from the iTunes platform. If I ordered a physical copy from a European store, it would arrived in May with enough luck. So, iTunes would've been a reasonable choice.
