    Nightwish Off Topic

    I'm kinda sad, but knowing that Jukka is pretty much still working behind the scenes makes me happy. Besides, Kai Is a drums god.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    The orchestra Is Nice and all but yeah time for a change. Maybe they can use some electronics like WT.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Tarja needs better producers. I get what she's trying to do, I really do. But it's not there. Railroads wears the clothes of a good song, but the body within just isn't there, and can't be under the current circumstances, because the person who approved those sound vfx and funny mixes would have known it beforehand. Dear Tarja, just take a trip to Los Angeles or London and talk to a guy or two; take this recording as a demo, even, I'm sure they'll make it great beyond any expectations. Trust me on this. You know it to be true.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I'm sorry! It didn't "refresh" on my page, maybe I triggered a web bug? -- If I don't receive a recording of Floor's gethsemane my life will be all in vain.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    As you can see the screen shows the track is, at least in the form it was displayed, "brickwalled", meaning the wavelengths are all "maxed out", meaning the mix is intended to have a complete, full "wall of sound" which usually means either a super loud background track (Noise guitars or lots of crowd noises) or all in all a lack of dynamics (volume changes) in the tracks.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Lol I can already see the bad mix from here (Those levels, just no) That's it for that I guess, maybe next time

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Colors in the Dark was her best era. Everything in those pictures and the album just clicks.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Aren't MWS and CITD her best selling albums? You'd think she'd get the idea.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    That was burning trash. I for the love of God can't understand why Tarja likes to present herself as an edgy metal witch instead of the elegant sound she can adopt as in My Winter Storm and Colors in the Dark No one is gonna catch me dead listening to such an over the top, childish edgy sound for the sake of it as it is present in this song. A shame, her voice sounds great.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Oh really? I went to the Colombia show and there weren't really a lot of cameras (not for a live DVD, more like for a YouTube video). Floor took a bit of time to get into the groove but by the third song she was already in top form so if they need to replace some songs from Buenos Aires they're in the clear. Nice to know there might be something coming and I'm also surprised at the radio silence from both the band and the label (which is weird because the label loves to sell stuff all the time). I do believe that the DVD might be more of a hype tool for the album. Here's hoping the audio mix is too notch quality this time. The last.. well, all, of the live releases haven't been fully realized on mix sound quality and clarity. Hope we get Wishmaster too. The version they played in Finland was super fun.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Hi all my dear forumers. It's been a long time no see ya. I know, things are quiet on the Nightwish camp and have been for a while. During all this time I sure suppose and hope you've had wonderful adventures, joyful moments and a bunch of brand new dreams. I sure have. And most assuredly so did the Nightwish guys (and that one special woman), who've been resting themselves for a bit, focusing on other projects, letting life flow in and out with new things to bring at our feet. But you know that feeling, the one you get just in the last days of a long vacation. The feeling that maybe you we've been out too much and it's time to go back, you know. I don't really recall hearing something about a special show being professionally filmed on the decades tour, but on the other hand, lots of them were filmed in some way or another. Which is a blessing because as we know, many of those songs (which got special musical arrangements for the occasion) are part of the band's history, and as said by Tuomas himself, they're not really ever coming back. So, to ease up the wait for the new album (I've got a nice feeling about it!) what could be better than a good old live DVD with a killer mix in which we get to hear those interpretations of the songs. But news have been scarce. Did they really not film anything? Are they just riding the hiatus tail for a bit longer? Is it surprise coming? Now you tell me what you think.

    I didn't mean "clear" as in "natural", but in effect. How does Sharon manage to always look 10 years younger? I've been shocked about her age since about 2007 haha.

    Within Temptation II

    EFMB sounds really clear, but lacks "punch" and depth. It's a big step up from the prior two albums (which were more or less pure noise the moment a guitar appeared, which is a big problem in a melodic metal band) but still feels rooted in a "classic" (See: 60's, 70's) production style in which the band is there and then the vocals are up there and the background is back there. That's it, no change, no surprise, no real soundscape, just a clearer approximation to the experience of hearing the band live. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, mind you, but I feel like the music deserves more of a "surrealistic" and powerful coat of paint. In my humble opinion, WT has been the best produced band in the genre (Maybe with the exception of Ghost when they released Melliora, which is simply sublime, but they ruined themselves again with Prequelle) since The Heart of Everything, they've changed through many styles but they're always the clearest sounding band of them all. @Serena <3

    Within Temptation II

    When people ask Nightwish to up their production game this is what we mean. Resist sounds absolutely delicious, clear guitars, defined instruments, a very encompassing atmosphere, every drum beat, riff and vocal line is at the same time separated from one another and cohesively united. This album sounds like it came out in 2019 and it feeds from every advancement made in the sound production arts. Not to mention the electronic elements which are extremely tastefully injected giving the band a very unique, modern yet firmly rooted sound. Hats off.
