    Within Temptation II

    ^In Australia at least, the full version of the song is available on iTunes, though not Spotify. I quite like the track. I don't know if it's because we've heard enough tracks now to get a sense of the feel of the album, but this one feels like the first truly 'Resist'-era sounding song. The others seem to have their roots in other eras (not necessarily a bad thing).

    Remember Me - Edenbridge Probably addicted to the entire myearthdream album but that song in particular.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    I'm pretty sure I remember reading something about emails exchanged in the lead up to the Decades release. Also, there was definitely correspondence regarding the 10th Anniversary version of Once (the inclusion of an instrumental disc), which was ultimately shelved.

    AURI

    I find that the lyrics are a nod to many Nightwish songs. Is it a coincidence that it has Night in the title? There's The Islander, obviously, but the sentiment of the song also hearkens back to Turn Loose the Mermaids. Also: An apple for a thirsty bite - Passion and the Opera A clean slate, a newborn mind - Sagan Tonight I will make the leap - Elan (although this could refer to a different kind of leap) The calming mothers call - Our Decades in the Sun Back in time; I'm cleansed and bare - Bless the Child I may be reaching, and there are more, but they are a bit looser (Tuomas has, after all, covered a lot of territory over the years).
  6. I think Ahasverus was referring to the album after the album with a tentative release in 2020. Only if the trend of five years between continues, though, which it may not.
  7. I hope we get something like the video recordings (I know that the word recording can be taken a few ways) of the rehearsals we got with Anette - like Planet Hell and Romanticide.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I tend to think that the people complaining that Tarja and co aren't doing enough for charity are really complaining they aren't doing enough for them.
  9. A Facebook post by the band? Hmm, I might have to make an overseas trip. Hopefully they come to where you are, Moncho.
  10. I hope they announce Australian dates. There seems to be a bit of a break at the start of the European dates... Hopefully they'll squeeze a five city tour in there somewhere.

    Tristania

    I'd love for Tristania to release another album. The Darkest White was a really strong release. As good as Ashes, which is my third favourite (after World of Glass and Illumination).

    Within Temptation

    I think it's pretty fantastic that we are getting treated to both a Sharon solo album and a new WT album all within the next year or so. I hope that it doesn't spell the end for the band. I choose to remain optimistic.

    Anette Olzon

    This song is probably my favourite. The verses remind me of For The Heart I Once Had, which - unpopular opinion imminent - I think is a rather underrated song.

    Nightwish Confessions

    Yet Tuomas wrote the lyrics not as a parent but as a child, which everyone should be able to identify with. I get what Aniron and dragonprincess are saying - the lyrics seem... hollowed out? I had similar issues with Decades in the Sun, although not so much with the lyrics but the delivery itself. My biggest gripes are that the bridge section lacks a punch (musically and vocally) and that the children choir's vocal lines aren't very dynamic. The ending is magical though.
