    The Marco thread

    Yeah! I read those! It gives an idea of what the song is about. Howeveeeeeer... I want Marko's own lyrics. I want to hear him sing them.

    The Marco thread

    After just one listen (Isääni ääni aside) I'm impressed and even a bit surprised. That said, it's not a masterpiece or anything, but a great album. Marko has obviously already proven he knows how to write music, and it's nice to hear his voice in ways different to what we usually hear in Nightwish. I have to say I liked the first half the best. After Laulu sinulle some songs started to feel a bit too similar too each other, but more listens could cure that. Obviously, there is a language barrier, and I expect my opinion on several songs to change once I hear them in English... but that's for another day. Thoughts: Kiviä - First track, and already made a good impression! The instruments, backing vocals and melodies create viking metal. Me like! Isäni ääni - All about the modded guitar. Marko's soft voice is good. I wish I knew the lyrics. Tähti, hiekka ja varjo - That synth intro was so unexpected but so very welcome! Then my first thoughts interestingly were "this is what Wishmaster-era Nightwish would have sounded like today." That kinda changed when the singing started, but anyway... Kuolleiden jumalten poika - It's heavy. Kinda "eh". Nothing more to say as of yet. Laulu sinulle - Love the atmosphere during the calmer parts. The "underlying" vocals in the second half are awesome. Minä olen tie - Again, some of that same atmosphere. Juoksen rautateitä - Don't know the lyrics (although this is "I run on railways") , but this feels like the most lighthearted track. It's fast, it's fun, there's a vintage organ and the song sounds like it could be from the 70's or 80's. (In my mind. I'm not really familiar with those times.) Vapauden kuolinmarssi - Much emphasis on bass and vocals here. Unelmoin öisin - This one will benefit from English lyrics, I think. Totuus vapauttaa - Well, most of it (or what feels like most of it) is instrumental, and it's just my type of instrumental music, so I'm quite happy. I saw dark cliffs being struck by the ocean waves, which felt like an appropriate image to end the album with.

    MUSTAN SYDÄMEN ROVIO (Yeah, I wrote that from memory) is OUT. Did anyone have a listen yet? I'm about to. Just gotta have me some breakfast first.

    Eurovision SC 2019

    Ok, so I'm a bit late, but... DANG, that was exciting! I knew the Netherlands would win, but when only Sweden was yet to receive their points... My heart was racing. Surprising but fun how North Macedonia was the jury winner, and Norway the televoting winner. Both deservedly, I guess. It was a great final, after all. Madonna was a joke though. The performance has been uploaded to her official YouTube channel with fixed vocals, which is kinda embarrassing. When will the jury representatives learn that the show airs late at night and always goes over time? Just say "good evening, Europe. Great show. Twelve points go to..." and be done with it...! (Looking at you, Russia and Greece...) Now, bring on Within Temptation as next year's interval act. Performing Supernova probably, if it was up to them.

    Eurovision SC 2019

    This semi-final was definitely stronger. I guessed 8 out of 10 finalists correctly! There were a lot of great singers, which isn't always a given in this contest... Norway's "hook" is similar to Finland's from last year. Proud of our John Lundvik, but the camera work disappointed. The effect of The Mamas appearing out of nowhere was a powerful image back in Stockholm, but tonight the angle was all wrong.

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    Hey, this is where we post The Dark Element stuff, yes? Because their second album is done and ready. Another album to look forward to this year. Assumably.

    Eurovision SC 2019

    I only got home in time for Georgia/entry 12, so mostly the recap had to do for me. But I've checked out all the entries earlier. Seems like a somewhat weak year to me. Yesterday I liked Australia, Greece, and Iceland. Have to say Sweden is one of my favorites, not only because it's my country but also because it is one of the best songs. I still think The Netherlands has the best chance to win, but it comes down to whether or not they do a solid performance on Thursday. I know Sweden will.

    The Jukka thread

    Speak of the devil drummer! The way I see it... Jukka is still largely involved with the business of the band. They're all friends, and there's no reason for jealousy. Kai is an excellent replacement chosen by his predecessor himself. As long as Jukka's health is prioritized, it doesn't matter who's the drummer in Nightwish! Unless that person is not Jukka or Kai. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

    It's Friday. It's the 10th. Isäni ääni is out digitally and for streaming. It's... not my cup of tea. I like the middle part though. I'm glad there's just a short wait until we have the full album.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    First photo, top right. "Acapella". And I love me some pipe leads. Also, what could be going on with the whispers, I wonder? Edit: Song opens with a heart beating?

    So many exciting little details.

    The Marco thread

    One hint could be the fact that the Nightwish website used the new spelling for the news - "Marko's debut album". We'll definitely have to wait and see if Nightwish's bassist-vocalist is called Marko once the next website re-design takes place, about a year from now.
