    Helicopter rotor blades in motion and knives give me unpleasant intrusive thoughts.

    Nymphomaniac Fantasia, duh. Also, I don't think you can have a more neutral opinion about Ocean Soul than mine.

General Music

  • Favourite Band/Artist?
    Nightwish, Within Temptation, Tarja, Two Steps From Hell + various video game soundtracks.
  • Musical Dislikes (Songs, Bands etc)
    I'm not much for "urban music" - jazz, rap, R'n'B etc. Also most mainstream Swedish radio pop.
  1. OH, COME ON! You can't share something like that without providing a source (if possible) or at least the name of the station!
  2. It's ok, but quite bland compared to the other two. That was to be expected. Just hoping we haven't already heard all the good stuff, and that the rest of the album will have some non-traditionally structured, less single friendly songs too. I have no idea what this Liimatainen has done in the past.
  3. I could have said this. While a few earlier songs caught my interest at first, it was Dark Passion Play that really kickstarted my career as a Nightwish fan. Also the first album I ever bought. (The Tour Edition.) Of course, the 12 year old me only listened to the singles, basically. Ballads were boring, and how could anyone ever want to listen to a 14 minute song? If I could time travel I'd go back and slap myself. I do however forgive myself for thinking Marco was Tuomas and vice versa. Either way, it's a very important album to me, and I'm way less critical towards it than what seems to be common opinion. Probably because I was too young to really understand it. But I like all the songs. Meadows of Heaven happens to be the most emotionally significant song I know.
  4. The intro is basically Storytime... But it's really catchy and energizing, and better than The Dark Element. My expectations for the rest of the album have went up further.
  5. So I was hoping for an announcement today, but it doesn't seem to be happening... I'll just keep expecting the unexpected, whatever it is I'm not expecting.
  6. It's actually a very OK song. I've listened a few times.
  7. So what's this about the nose surgery she's had just now? She's hoping to be able to breathe and sing better, so is it possibly a big deal career-wise? I never knew she had any issues, but how great for her if it's an improvement to quality of life.
  8. It's a short snippet, but I hear potential. I really hope she won't sing in Swenglish again...! Her accent was noticeable with Nightwish, but on Shine it was a bit too much for my Swedish ears... Maybe I'm over-exaggerating. Tarja also has a noticeable accent, but I still enjoy her solo work a lot, because the music is more my taste. Seems like that will be the case with this album as well. As opposed to Shine, I mean.
  9. Looking at their logo (which can be seen here and here, for instance...) it's quite stylized. It's giving me fantasy, Elder Scrolls-y vibes... I wonder if it represents the themes and/or musical direction... Looks like something I would associate with an... almost druidistic approach to nature and environment, conveyed through music and sounds. (Saving the science stuff for Nightwish?) I hope I'm not setting up far-off expectations for myself, though surprises are always welcome, haha...!
  10. YES. SO MUCH YES. This sounds amazing! If this is what it sounds like, I think it will be exactly my type of music! Expecting it to lean towards ambient, less structured, perhaps even experimental music... Something like Troy's Madness of Crowds. But even if I'm wrong, with Tuomas along for the ride I'm sure we can expect some great stuff coming up. Johanna Kurkela has already proven herself with Scrooge, so no worries there. But don't steal any ideas from Nightwish now.
  11. Oh, wow! Was that part really there before? Hadn't seen it... Hahaha, if that's the case I'll gladly have one, of course!
  12. Which could possibly mean a bundle? Extra special with everything extra? Assuming there will be at least one show in Sweden, some time during summer 2018 or so, I'll likely be going with my brother again. As long as trip to Japan doesn't get in the way. I want to attend a show and make sure to stand further back for a change... See if it makes for a different experience.
  13. If the older songs on Decades are 2018 remasters it's a must buy, but if it's just a compilation and nothing new I guess I'll pass, as much as I love the idea of "Decades - Nightwish" in my Library... We will also need high-quality recordings of the "twist"-ied old songs played live.
  14. I'm a huge Eurovision fan... although it's a seasonal thing. Very few songs make it into my playlists after the whole thing is over every year... Haha... My top 3 this year is Italy, Romania and The Netherlands. I was prepared to vote for Italy if the Final performance was good, unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. They also played it in a lower key than the studio version, which is interestingly never mentioned when that's the case... It's a tough one this year. Guessing Bulgaria will take it home, but Portugal seems to grow by the minute.
  15. You know, I'm just about convinced I saw Floor referring to Hannes as her husband in an interview last year. I'm 100% certain they were getting married a while back. Doing some digging, it seems they both go just by the name "Dahl" as of now. I swear I'm not a stalker. So I'd say they are married for sure, and we can also assume their newborn daughter's last name... But I already kinda feel I'm violating their privacy... They will still be Jansen and Van Dahl to me...! Congratulations to the new family!
