    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Hopefully, this is the right thread to discuss this but I noticed the two symbols in the poster for Sao Paulo show and was interested whether anyone from here is a sign expert :-)) Could they refer to the new album title maybe? I've done brief research and found out they are Sumerian glyphs. The first one resembles a combination of signs that stand for a man and a woman (flipped horizontally). The other one stands for a god. Any ideas?

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Toni wrote on Facebook that the World Tour starts in April 2020 so most probably there will be a NA Tour before.
  3. Hey. Found this interview with Marco and thought I'd share it. https://www.rocker.si/marco-hietala-nightwish-boycott-trendy-instant-music/
  4. I remember someone from the band saying in an interview they will perform songs they haven't so far and all the songs included on the compilation have already been played, so I guess the setlist will be different... Also when it comes to bonuses and live tracks: The band has deliberately decided not to include bonus tracks or unpublished songs on the record, “for the simple reason, that we don’t have any”, says composer Tuomas Holopainen. “The other thing that many people requested was that we should re-record some of the older stuff with Floor and Troy, but the answer to that is also a very clear ‘No’. The songs are what they are. They are absolutely perfect in their imperfection and reflect the era in which the band existed at that time. So I thought it would be a sacrilege to go and tinker with them afterwards.”

    Yeah, you're right. Interesting. Maybe just a bad mix, dunno... "He doesn't play his keyboard at all" made me laugh though, haha )

    Because we're really tired of complaining about the mix. It's bad, but I think I got over it. I'll wish upon a star for next time. Hopefully Nuclear Blast gains some respect for the band that buys their pools. Doubt it though. I think they are not muted. Just not well synchronised audio vs video as you can notice a second before that moment Tuomas stars playing the flutes on his keyboard...

    I agree although I am really curious about what they did with Floor vocals during the last high note in GLS, because if you look it up on YouTube and listen to it... I mean I really like Floor and she had hit the right note so many times... But this time, uff... Stargazers sounds pretty good on the other hand (don't understand why they added that applause in the background while Floor is speaking and removed the audience from the "hey! hey!" part though).

    I only received an e-mail from Nuclear Blast that the release had to be rescheduled for 16th December.

    I think Mailorder includes two LP's... So must be wrong info. Although the picture shows 3 LP...

    Nuclear Blast has put some of their editions on now too. Wonder what the difference between these two is except for the price... Earbook 3 DVD + 2 BR + 2 CD 50€ http://www.nuclearblast.de/en/products/tontraeger/dvd-bluray/earbook/nightwish-vehicle-of-spirit-earbook.html CD Box Set (Mailorder) 3 DVD + 2 BR + 2 CD 80 € http://www.nuclearblast.de/en/products/tontraeger/cd/cd-boxset/nightwish-vehicle-of-spirit-mailorder-edition.html EDIT: Probably just wrong info put to the products, but the prize is -20 € compared to the same release Madsupply offers.

    Let's see maybe Nuclear Blast will sell the CDs as a standalone digipack or something. They use to have their "exclusive"s.

    Vehicle Of Spirit

    That is a HUGE bundle. Not really gonna buy that though as I don't really need the content both on DVD and Blu-ray, finding it as wasting my money. Would prefer 2 BRs and 2 CDs bundle. Nightwish Shop has Vehicle of Spirit available for preorder now too http://www.madsupply.com/en/shop/band+merchandise/nightwish/vehicle+of+spirit

    Vehicle Of Spirit

    I hope we don't get Ville's version of Blair Witch Protect at Wembley! Any idea what "guerilla style" means in the context of camera work? Guerrilla war takes place when a group of soilders fights from a more elevated position than the enemy, for example, they shoot from the top of a hill, so I think it means camera on the top aiming down to the band and vice versa. I think we can definitely expect something similar to Ghost Love Score from Bueons Aires, I Want My Tears Back from Hartwall Arena and a lot of other live clips on Nightwish Youtube channel which were directed by Vile... I like that style but eventually its sound is much more important to me :-) Also see here for a more detailed description of what guerilla filmmaking means.

    Aha so that is why I wasn't able to find it there. Thanks for your translation, very interesting news.

    World Tour EFMB 2015/2016 pt. ll.

    It's going to be their 4th gig here during EFMB tour after Masters of Rock, sold out Prague (over 12 500 ppl) and Metalfest. And it's not a metal festival they are playing, its a local event that is held to celebrate the city of Havířov. Every year they invite a big band to play there. For example in the preview years they had Lordi, Hammerfall, Within Temptation, Stratovarius, Guano Apes, Europe, Halloween... Always complemented by non-metal bands and local artists :-)

    World Tour EFMB 2015/2016 pt. ll.

    Yeah I was going to write the same. The official Russian fanclub did the interview with Floor a year ago before the EFMB Tour started. See the first two paragraphs here (use a Google translator) http://nightwish.com.ru/media/interviews/871-vtoroe-eksklyuzivnoe-intervyu-flor-yansen-dlya-nightcom-official-nightwish-russia/

    World Tour EFMB 2015/2016

    They deleted Montreal cause they failed, only Weak Fantasy and YIAEH clips are recorded in Montreal and will be used in the next tour edition DVD release on 30th of October. There are definitely more shows that were filmed I am sure. During summer festival season I went to Masters of Rock and Nightwish had their crew to film a few songs there. Not all of them, but they were filming throughout the whole show. They just probably collect material now and later they might release it... There is no Weak Fantasy on EFMB Tour Edition DVD.

    Official Artwork

    Well, but then the Angel of Grief is still about the same - a statue of an angel. And that's it. I agree about what you think about this kind of imagery and that it is not new. But look closely. It's just like a copy of it. Its shape, color mood and even quite a lot of things in the collage itself - train, bridge, wings, horses, pylons, geerwheels, ribbon or some kind of a circular shape on the top (globe in EFMB cover)...

    I just found this poster from 2013 and it strongly reminds me something... :/ Do you think this could be just a coincidence? https://yuq.me/users/20/654/VAnkPgbZIa.png

  25. Tarja is watching And i just noticed: wish i had a coffee Hmm... I wonder if that means mastering the material to have it prepared for a DVD down the road, or if they're getting the first live YouTube clip from this tour together to finally share . I would love to hear EFMB album in 5.1 since I finally got pretty good speakers and I bet TGSOE would be something else with surround sound.. Once and DPP sound great in 5.1, iRum could be released additionally, but at least we've got the movie in 5.1 :-)
