    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Sadly, I find myself agreeing wholeheartedly with everything you say in this post, although I wouldn't mind if the whole album dealt with the topic in some way (I love a concept album)

    Just watched the episode, thanks so much for the translation! Great concept for a show. And these guys really seem to have fallen for Floor. I have never heard Strong, but Emma nailed it.

Can't wait to hear his duet with Floor... 😎

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    Really enjoying the new single. Yes, it could easily have been on album 1, but why change it if it's working? Good luck to them I say, I'll be purchasing it and enjoying, their music is particulary good for running to....
