    Entertaining things and creative stuff - music and video games are what keeps me going. Things you can look at and things you can listen to. Humans and humanity, and how to live today for a sustainable tomorrow. Also food.

Nightwish

    Within Temptation

    HEAVY! No doubt this album is a step in a very right direction. I just love that they never cease to surprise.

    Northward

    I like the middle part. It's the best part. Nightwish should steal it.

    Within Temptation

    Oh, good. It was a cool cover, but it did look a bit unusual and concept-album-y.

    Within Temptation

    It obviously comes down to the actual music in the end, but I love everything so far. The theme, the aesthetic of the album cover, the song titles... Bring it on.

    Raise was one time, and one time is enough one time too many. They have said Friday, and Friday is what it's gonna be. For me.

    Within Temptation

    So I've apparently been accepted into the group despite never entering any password. I guess my application was still submitted... and the password thing is more of a ploy? Anyway, I'm kinda excited for Friday.

    Safari on MacOS - no Private mode needed. Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 - no InPrivate needed. Google Chrome on MacOS and Windows 10 - Private mode needed. I guess the rules don't work exactly as intended.

    Wait... You have to use Incognito mode in your browser to see the new page? I'm not using incognito mode, but I am using Safari with all those Do not Track and the like settings... Oh, I can't decide if I love or hate these kind of marketing schemes.

    I like what I hear.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    The alternative versions of Elán and Endless Forms Most Beautiful on each respective single were done by Petri Alanko, let's not forget.

    Northward

    What are the odds the name "Northward" is not a reference to Floor's life since meeting her now-husband and joining Nightwish (whatever happened first...)? But if they also wrote the title track back in 2008, that's some gooood foreshadowing!

    Nightwish Off Topic

    Oh, yeah. Great. The English translation of We Were Here is finally coming in November and pre-orders are up now. I held off the whole first half of the year buying Stainless? so I could get both books at the same time, but you just had to wait until two weeks after I gave in and got it anyway. Awesome. No, it's fine. I love paying for shipping. Here's a link to the announcement on Facebook. I don't know how to do those fancy embedded posts that are actually readable.

    Within Temptation

    Well, newsletter is here. Enter and The Dance will be released in limited vinyl and CD editions in October. As for the next album, they say "bear with us..." Oh, we are!

    The Marco thread

    I finished the book a few days ago. Interesting read! He has definitely lived a rock and roll life. Made a lot of poor decisions, but also accepted and faced the consequences. No point in judging him for it, as I'd rather selfishly enjoy the music he's given us. I found it really interesting how he described how Tarot's sound has evolved through their career, so now I want to go through their music from beginning to end and hear for myself. How sad that they were brought to a seemingly indefinite hiatus by Cinnari's death. He was not only their drummer, but a long time friend.

    Northward

    It's funny how they specifically mention a "stripped down sound", without "heavy layers of keyboard, choirs etc." Those things are basically what I live for. Strip off everything but the layers and choirs and I'm still happy. But I can definitely enjoy this, all thanks to Floor, of course. Great energy! I was kinda worried I would hear this one first single and lose all interest in Northward (let's drop that s in the thread title?) but fortunately that's not the case! Self titled album. Here's the tracklist: 01. While Love Died 02. Get What You Give 03. Storm In A Glass 04. Drifting Islands (feat. Irene Jansen) 05. Paragon 06. Let Me Out 07. Big Boy 08. Timebomb 09. Bridle Passion 10. I Need 11. Northward The aesthetic of the album cover is really cool! The "screaming at each other" motif... not too original, but whatever.
