    Cellar Darling

    Cellar Darling is the new band of the formerly Eluveitie members Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars & bass) which was formed last year out of the spilt of Eluveitie. Cellar Darling just released their debut album "This Is The Sound", the limited digibook edition contains really great cover versions of "Mad World" (Tears For Fears) and "The Prophet's Song" (Queen), it's only strange that both Cellar Darling and Eluveitie are part of the same label Nuclear Blast.... Nevertheless I really like "This Is The Sound", here are some clips released on youtube:

    I lost sight of Angra many years ago but I love their "Holy Land" album, R.i.P.

    Lieblingsalbum von Nightwish

    Im englischen Forum gibt es mittlerweile auch einen aktuellen Album Ranking Thread und dort gibt es auch einige die EFMB eher weiter hinten platzieren bzw. AFF davor stellen, soviel mal dazu...

    Lieblingsalbum von Nightwish

    Mit Revamp habe ich mich eigentlich nie so recht beschäftigt und von After Forever kenne ich in erster Linie ihr letztes Album was mir durchaus sehr gut gefällt, Floor setzte bei After Forever ja auch mehr ihren klassischen Gesang ein. Dass ich mit EFMB wenig bis gar nichts anfangen kann liegt aber nicht alleine an Floor - die meiner Meinung nach auf den Album mit angezogener Handbremse singt während ihr "Normalgesang" für mich einfach austauschbar klingt - sondern auch daran dass ich das Album eher musikallisch belanglos finde, Songs wie z.B. "Elan", "Edema Ruh", "My Walden" und "Alpenglow" sind meiner Meinung nach belanglose (Folk) Pop Songs mit denen ich nicht wirklich was anfangen kann, an den anderen Songs habe ich mich relativ schnell sattgehört... Tja und du hast ja gesehen dass ich anscheinend doch nicht der einzige bin der so denkt

    Mittlerweile würde ich Imaginaerum ganz knapp vor Oceanborn stellen, die Plätze 3 bis 7 sind ebenfalls recht knapp beeinander während der letzte Platz fix für EFMB reserviert ist... 1. Imaginaerum 2. Oceanborn 3. Once 4. Wishmaster 5. Dark Passion Play 6. Century Child 7. Angels Fall First 8. Endless Forms Most beautiful

    Exit Eden

    Exit Eden is a new project featuring Amanda Somerville, Clémentine Delauney (Visions Of Atlantis, Serenity), Marina La Torraca and Anna Brunner. Their debut album "Rhapsodies In Black" will be a mix of metal cover versions from among others Rihanna, Madonna, Adele, Depeche Mode or Lady Gaga. This sounds strange (and a little bit similar to the Northern Kings project from Marco) and the reactions so far differ but I think it sounds cool in a way ;). "Rhapsodies In Black" will be released on August 4th 2017 and there are already two video clips online, I'm curious what do you think about that :). This will be the tracklist: 1. A Question Of Time (Depeche Mode) 2. Unfaithful (Rihanna) 3. Incomplete (this could be a Backstreet Boys song ) 4. Impossible (Shontelle) 5. Frozen feat Simone Simons (Madonna) 6. Heaven (I'm not sure about that, maybe a Bryan Adams song) 7. Firework (Katy Perry) 8. Skyfall feat. Simone Simons (Adele) 9. Total Eclipse of The Heart feat. Rick Altzi (Bonnie Tyler) 10. Paparazzi (Lady Gaga) 11. Fade To Grey (Visage) Who the musicians are (from their facebook page): Amanda Somerville: Amanda is a rock-solid authority of the music scene: both as a solo artist and sharing success and the stage with bands like AVANTASIA, EPICA and KAMELOT. Though her US-American roots are based in Pop & Rock, she fell in love with the Metal scene and made it her home. She has toured with Alice Cooper, Ian Gillan and many more legends with her commanding voice and fronts the projects TRILLIUM and Kiske Somerville (with HELLOWEEN icon Michael Kiske). All this, combined with her wide range of experience, grants her a unique edge and a permanent address in the Metal world. Clémentine Delauney: Clémentine was born near Paris 30 years ago. She has been a multi talent since her childhood days – no matter if dancing, playing the piano or singing – she enchanted her audience. At the age of 16, she joined her first Metal band, is currently fronting Symphonic Metal outfit VISIONS OF ATLANTIS and also worked with SERENITY and MELTED SPACE. Another of her career highlights is the participation on Kai Hansen’s (HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY) first solo album, released in 2016. Thus, Clémentine has carved her way into being one of the great performers of the scene. Anna Brunner: A natural talent, Anna began at a very early age with singing. As a daughter of a German father and an American mother, she grew up bilingual and founded her first Rock band as a teenager. Due to a music study that lead her through different parts of the world, she garnered a multitude of experience and it became crystal clear to her: music has to rock – and vocals need to be emotional – just like a passionate scream. Marina La Torraca: Hailing from Brazil, Marina was born with rhythm in her blood. As the auspicious singer of several Brazilian Metal bands in Sao Paulo, her path quickly led her to perform with AVANTASIA and her up-and-coming band, PHANTOM ELITE. For several years, Marina has been living in Germany and honing her musical craft. For her, being close to the crowd is what counts – no problem for her and her naturally convincing character!

    Beyond the Black

    According to the tracklist (published on, and there is only the re-recorded "Forget My Name" version on the best of, the other songs seem to be the original versions: 1. In The Shadows 2. Lost In Forever 3. When Angels Fall 4. Beautiful Lies 5. Songs Of Love And Death 6. Hallelujah 7. Love's A Burden 8. Unbroken 9. Written In Blood 10. Night Will Fade 11. Love Me Forever 12. Forget My Name (Re-Recorded) 13. Shine And Shade I will never understand this kind of re-release policy, I don't care if it's Beyond The Black, Nightwish or any other band, for me this is just a rip-off...

    Ich dachte ich eröffne mal einen eigenen Thread zu Amorphis, mit "Under The Red Cloud" hat die Band einmal mehr ein großartiges Album veröffentlicht und seit einiger Zeit ist man ja gemeinsam mit Nightwish als Toursupport unterwegs. Nächstes Jahr kann man wohl davon ausgehen dass auch eine eigene größere Tour folgen wird, als ich Amorphis vorige Woche in Wörgl gesehen habe wurden schon mal entsprechende Planungen geäußert, demnächst werden wahrscheinlich erste Daten bekannt gegeben. Neben der derzeit noch laufenden Tour mit Nightwish spielen Amorphis übrigens am 20.12.2015 auch noch ein eigenes Konzert in Köln (Essigfabrik), diese beiden Berichte vom Wörgl Konzert sollten zeigen dass sich ein entsprechender Konzertbesuch lohnen sollte : Hier übrigens mal die Videoclips die man zu den neuen Songs "Sacrifice" und "Death Of A King" gedreht hat:

    Wie lange seid ihr schon Nightwish Fans?

    Tja ich bin so wie es ausschaut wiederum einer der wenigen der seit dem Einstieg von Floor und den ersten gemeinsamen Album "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" immer mehr das Interesse an Nightwish verloren hat. Floor's Stimme überzeugt mich weder auf dem Album noch live, sorry aber die Art und Weise wie Floor die alten Nightwish Songs singt erreicht mich emotional nicht so wie die Interpretationen von Tarja. Auch mit Anette's Stimme konnte ich - so skurril es auch klingen mag - weitaus mehr anfangen, mit Floor ist Nightwish einfach nicht mehr mein Fall....
