    I would also assume fall 2020 release. My guess is that they'll go to studio in spring but we will have to wait and see. Even if they release in fall 2020 it will be four years after THP. That's quite a long time for them but I hope it means they are more inspired now to write new music. I'm interested on how the next album will sound. TQE was an easy to listen, catchy, more up tempo album. THP was kind of a mix between RFTI and TQE, being darker and slower, with bigger production but the songwriting was a bit hit and miss for me. I personally would like the next album to have more dynamics (not all the time turned up to eleven) and maybe something a bit less formulaic. But it will be an interesting year for symphonic metal if we get both Nightwish and Epica.

    I mean when a band goes through that many singers in such a short time, then maybe there is something wrong with the guys. We might never know the whole story, but I do understand the fans questioning them. I enjoyed Theater of Dimensions, the band had grown to be quite good if still pretty much a clone mixing Epica and Nightwish, but lost all interest in them after Dianne left. Pretty much haven't listened to them since then.

    Yes, my a large margin.

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Not a real guy. I don't really remember the story but it was some kind of a nickname/pseudonym of the guy who founded the festival. And it was voted as the best festival in Finland last year and probably again this year. But the capacity is only 5000 people per day so might be a bit small for Nightwish.

    Pitfalls is amazing. I Lose Hope is my favorite. The bass is super groovy and the whole track is so catchy. There really aren't any bad songs, although Foreigner sounds a bit like a track that wasn't good enough for Malina. Overall the album might be on my top 3 this year, but my AOTY is still going to Swallow the Sun.

    This one. The bass is so groovy, and the whole track is super catchy. The whole album is great too.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Oh, that's cool. Also sorry for off topic.

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Oh, now I noticed that Rockfest is in the beginning of June. I probably can't go then but we'll see. As a student I can't plan my life that far anyway. Would love to have Nightwish at John Smith rock festival but that's probably too small for them? This year's headliners were Amaranthe, Arch Enemy and Amorphis, so quite big but smaller bands. But the festival area is really nice and I personally like a smaller place. And there are buses from Jyväskylä. Thanks for the other tips as well. Raskasta Joulua isn't really my cup of tea. That Tarja concert seems cool, but pretty hard to go to.

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Well, I for one haven't even seen Nightwish live. They are not my favorite band (Amorphis and Swallow the Sun are), and I wouldn't pay 70€ to see them. I'm counting on seeing them at some festival sooner or later. I personally joined this forum a few years ago when I was getting into metal and Nightwish was one of my gateway bands. I still listen to them from time to time and follow this forum as it's nice and active. This might be an option, Tampere is only one and a half hours away from me. Gotta wait for more band announcements though, and I'll likely end up going to John Smith festival again, can't beat that!

    Agreed, he is very low on the mix.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Levykauppa Äx definitely has a goofy/funny approach to social media. But I don't think this necessarily "looks like them". The motorcycle thing sure doesn't look like Nightwish either.

    Children of Bodom

    Then why did the leaving members get a trademark for Children of Bodom just a month ago? But yes, we don't know the actual reasons yet and will probably hear more news soon. Also there had been rumors about this upcoming tour being their last months already a few months ago. Pretty much from the time they applied for the trademark aswell if I remember correctly. That might of course be just a coincidence.

    Children of Bodom

    Also the three guys leaving just got the trademark for Children of Bodom a month ago. So it seems they are trying to stop Laiho from going on without them. There is an article in Finnish, but the point is pretty much just that the company owned by the three guys now owns the rights for the name Children of Bodom for the next five years.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I think it's more about the mastering being too loud. It takes the space and punch away from the sound.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Sound is much better than Wembley, but too compressed and loud.
