    Ask Nightwish 2018 - Announcement

    Oh, I didn't know that. Weird...

    Ask Nightwish 2018 - Announcement

    I bet the band has been very busy last and this year, either with Nightwish or with their own projects. I wouldn't be surprised if they just didn't have time to answer/didn't feel like doing it on their spare time as family naturally goes first. I understand this well, they don't owe us anything. As a savonian finnish person I state: "they either will answer or they will not". Both options are fine to me.

    Nightwish and humor

    Funny stories? Well, this is more about the awkward me but the situation was funny. I met Marko couple of years ago in Helsinki. I was eating a cupcake. When I'm nervous I blabber like blablabla, very fast. So I was blabbering to him with my mouth full of cupcake. I was like "my mouth's full of cupcake but I can't swallow it!" Marko just laughed at me when I tried to swallow my cupcake and that didn't help at all what a warm laugh he has!
  4. Ohh yes. Couldn't agree more. Especially Tutankhamen. Floor would totally nail it. I already hear it in my head. But I must stop torturing myself. What are the odds they'd ever play this one? There are none. So I'll cry myself to sleep. Every night. and then I wake up and start crying again. O Tutankhamen... take me with you through the stargate!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I watched a Black Mirror episode called "The White Bear" which Tuomas mentioned when he answered our questions in 2016 (?). Now I really want a song named after that episode. I got a panic attack when I watched that thing it REALLY went under the skin.

    The Old Era

    I don't remember almost anything... I was 9-10 years old back then and my earliest memory of NW is when I heard that Tarja was fired on the radio. The next memory is that my mom bought Century Child. And the next memory is that we bought all the other albums. But I can't remember the first time I actually listened to them!

    The Floor thread

    I'm a hunter myself and I agree with Floor. I know much about the mass production of meat through my studies and I'm strongly against that thing. I eat meat, yes, but I rarely buy it from stores. I mostly eat just moose that is shared with the members of our hunting group (there are many moose where I'm from so we shoot about 14 of them every year - that's lots of meat just to be buried or burned). Also my parents have a farm where they raise cows. They are not dairy cows but an original Finnish breed, and owning them is just a hobby for my parents. We eat some of the bulls, but just as @Eilennamentioned, I'm okay with that 'cause our bulls can live almost natural life before they are eaten - they grow with their moms and have plenty of space to live, fields and forests. There can only be one dominant bull in the herd as you can imagine, so the others have to be taken elsewhere when they grow up. And that means they are either eaten or sold somewhere. I understand well that some people don't want to eat meat even if an animal has a natural life before being killed. The killing part is something not everyone has to accept and that's totally fine, I respect that. I personally don't have any better explanation why killing is okay for me in these cases, than I just want to eat something that is from as near as possible. When I eat a bit of moose or bull I don't have to buy some other protein source which is possibly transported from somewhere further.

    The Old Era

    Haha, reminds me of a day when my friends tested if I could name all the Nightwish songs they played to me. I recognized all the songs by their intros immediately, of course - except Dead Gardens I was like "what the heck is this!?" I knew the melody but I just couldn't remember the title. Enough said about that song.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Agree with you, and in my opinion they seemed even more confident with each other than on EFMB tour. That's why I enjoy being in the front row even though sound quality isn't the best - it's so fun to see their faces and how they enjoy being on stage.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    @GreatEye Yeah, I can try to find it. But Tuomas also did two hour-long interviews on Finnish radio stations so that quote may be found from either of those There's much material to search... But there were so interesting discussions on those radio interviews that I'm happy to listen to them again. No dull questions that have already been asked hundreds of times before!

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Tuomas has actually said (don't remember where, a Finnish interview I believe) that his neck is a bit injured because of all the headbanging. I just hope he won't make it worse 'cause he's still headbanding like crazy

    Nightwish Off Topic

    Tuomas said that he's been in contact with Tarja, but that wasn't about End of an Era since Tuomas knew nothing about the release I bet it was about Decades considering that Anette knew about that release as well.
  14. TheSnowyOwl

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Yeah, but we have to remember that certain old songs might be boring for Tuomas and Emppu (and possibly Marco) to play since they have played them already in the past. Back then they didn't have so many songs so there was little possibility for variety. By the way, I just found out that they have played Moondance once some time during Oceanborn era what a performance it must have been, haha!

    Eturivistä katsoen näytti, että Flooria alkoi itkettää. Ilme näytti siltä. Mutta eipä mitään, siitäkin selvittiin
