    Lacuna Coil

    Ah, thanks! I just know (and have seen live thanks to NW) Alissa.

    Within Temptation II

    Oh gosh, that's part of that DVD?! - I watched it like 12 years ago and tbh, I can only remember the JAVA Island concert. I think I need to go back watching it again over the upcoming holidays!

    Within Temptation II

    Wow thank you for sharing that video! I have never seen that one before and it's in excellent quality (for that time). She sounds flawless and she's very energetic during the whole set. The only negative aspect: 24 minutes is way to short! Even for an opening/supporting act.

    May I ask... Who's the blonde woman?

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    I really liked watching the interview. She seems to genuinely happy about the album and it makes me even more excited about finally listening to it this week. It's interesting to know that she still had some creative input when it comes to changing the vocals, melodies and parts of the lyrics. The question concerning NW was fair and it wasn't uncomfortable to watch. I think she did answer it in a fair, honest and friendly way. It's indeed a bit sad for NW fans because Anette turned me into a fan but that's life, I guess.

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    I admit it: Sometimes I'm a basic bitch. I love the latest single. Probably one of my favourite songs by the Dark Element! Can't wait to listen to the album when I'm back in my home country.

    House of the Dragon

    Now it's official: HBO produces a prequel series of "Game of Thrones" titled "House of the Dragon" and is based on the events of George R. R. Martin's "Fire & Blood". Finally, the Targaryens are getting what they deserve!

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Thank you for your comments! - I guess that Tarja and Within Temptation releasing new albums helped in creating more buzz around them. I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same with NW.. I mean the Upcoming Album thread is very active & I'm still excited about the new record... I still hope that Floor will win me over because I don't want to be one of the nay-sayers and just worshipping the old eras of NW - She's selling songs like "Ghost Love Score" and "The Greatest Show On Earth" to me but I guess that you're right @Figment-of-me I simply prefer "clear" voices when it comes to female lead singers. That's probably also the reason why I've become quite addicted to Epica lately. Floor is an amazing, skilled vocalists, basically a valkyrie on stage but I have always wondered why I couldn't get into her.. "her singing like a dude" is accurate but such a surprise to me! I'll probably end up getting a ticket for their show since they're basically playing 15 kms away from my home but I really need to get back on track first (I've listened more to WT, Tarja, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Beyond The Black, Evanescence, Lord of the Lost this year than NW.. which is strange).

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Thank you for sharing & translating! It was indeed a very interesting read. I wonder which song has moved Floor so much that she was almost not able to finish recording the track. I guess, we won't be hearing the song live then.

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    I have already seen Nightwish live (2x with Anette and1x Floor). I'm clearly a fan and love them but, tbh, they aren't my favourite band (that's Within Temptation). I registered on this forum because of it being quite active and I love the idea of having such place for (Symphonic) Metal lovers. My friends usually listen to pop music only. I'm the Black sheep of the pack and this forum helps me to interact with other people enjoying Symphonic Metal as well as getting news from bands which aren't easy to get + I even get introduced to new music. I love NW + Tarja and NW + Anette and even though I consider Floor to be an amazing vocalist, her voice doesn't really do it for me (in the sense that I'm not blown away by her tone). Also, "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" is my least favourite NW album. Thus, I will wait for the material to decide on the upcoming tour. In the meantime, I'll be attending my first Tarja concert next spring (excited!) and I already pre-ordered Anette's upcoming The Dark Element release.

    Beyond the Black

    Unfortunately, Beyond the Black had to cancel their concert in Paris due to Jennifer being sick. Apparently, she has already struggled with her health in the last two days and needs some rest. After taking a look at the tour dates, I've wondered if something like this will happen. They basically have almost no days in between to rest a bit. Such a tour schedule must be incredibly exhausting. I hope she will recover and feel better soon!

    Coldplay

    Coldplay just released the title track of the upcoming album and it's clearly my favourite one so far - when it comes to the new project. Also, they have announced two special concerts in Amman to launch the release of this album! I'm excited!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I'm sorry that you don't appreciate these changes. Personally, I think it couldn't be better

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    I will wait for them to release the upcoming album. If I end up enjoying it more than EFMB, I might buy a ticket for one of their concerts. I'm not thrilled about the support either.

    Beyond the Black

    Yeah, Beyond The Black did struggle at the beginning but I think that they've found their place among other Symphonic Metal bands and if you see them live, you can't tell the difference between WT, NW or Epica in terms of harmony. The band members work together as a whole and it feels natural (I can't compare it to performances of BTB 1.0, though). There's clearly a shift in terms of narrative and perception regarding the band. It has become way more positive now: Here's an article/review by metalhammer I would like to share which sums it up perfectly:
