    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I really wish there was only one release of theirs people could just anticipate with excitement for once. Look how little information there is and controversies are already piling up -- makes you wonder about the storm that will be unleashed once the first single drops. I get that it's "part of the hype" and all that, but come on tune it down a little bit. Saying associating yourself with Greta Thunberg (a 17 year-old girl who effectively just told people to cut it out with evironmental issues) would be the "WORST DECISION IN HISTORY" actively made my stomach hurt. Even completely ignoring the reasonable improbability of that scenario, how is associating yourself with a peaceful climate activist the worst decision in history? It would at least be odd and weird and out of nowhere, granted, but their collaboration with Dawkins, was far more risky in terms of controversy and was well recieved by *most* fans. You know what actually was the worst decision in history -- putting pineapple on Pizza, that's just pure insanity right there. Well done, discrediting anything but the point he was trying to make -- makes for great discussions. Nevermind he didn't at all claim Greta Thunberg and Sharbat Gula share the same "life experiences".

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Now, there's just hoping the mastering will be just as -- if not even more -- dynamic (and overall well done) as EFMB and Decades were! And I hope there will be Instrumental/Orchestral versions again, I really dig those!

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I think the owl is the same one from the Decades compilation album (the small one in the very center). The only thing I find a little weird is the colour palette -- purple and green just don't mix that well -- everything else is just fine (though I think it would have looked a lot better if they made the circle bigger and put logo and title inside of it like they did before). The circle itself has 8 spikes, might be because of the 8 albums released but it could just as well be a coincidence ...

    Heard it because it is on Spotify already, really nice tune! Let’s see anyway, just to keep this dead horse beat into the ground until it breaks the gates of hell and then some: Songs The Night Sings . Anette on vocals . Lyrics about dreams, stories and fleeing reality . eerie orchestral intro with bell sounds . poppy upbeat tune . about exactly 5 mins runtime Escapist . same . same . *literally* the same . same . same (doesn’t really matter to be honest but lists look a lot nicer with 5 points rather than 4)

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    No, not at all; just look at the tour trailer:

    Decades World Tour 2018

    They could record and release another song for a change, we already have 4 (now 5) recordings of GLS with Floor alone.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    On the risk of sounding like a broken record I still don’t get why people care so much about what random people trying to make a quick and cheap buck out of a band’s popularity have to say about their respective singer. Like anyone, especially fans, needed to be told Floor was a great singer. And why do they sometimes look like a deer about to be hit by a truck in the thumbnail?

    Within Temptation II

    I am of the opinion that this rant is unnescessary and the exact opposite of how to deal with a discussion. Seriously, what is even going on? I thought this thread was about the band and not the definition of an ethical standpoint? Besides "bigot" being the right term used in this given context (those who are intolerant of the opinions of others, i.e. those who are intolerant of the idea of sexual freedom) this whole thing seems to have grown into a discussion just for the sake of it (given that it seems the people involved all share the opinion of sexual freedom hence agree with the sentiment of the band). So, what's the point (other than calling someone out, publically, also probably just for the sake of it, given it's for such a relatively (no offense) random comment)? This is probably a joke, in these days that's always a possibility, so maybe I didn't get it right away, but if it's not, there are some serious issues to fixed regarding debating style and the like ... (Anyway, I shall continue to type the word FACTS only in uppercase letters from now on; this is way too funny). //end of my unnescessary rant, so let's go back to topic so we can all be friends again?

    Something tells me this whole endeavour is rather dead.

    2020/2021 Tour Setlist

    They should retire Ghost Love Score at least for a while, though;
  12. Adrn_2810

    Avantasia

    I think the same, but they should really work with a real orchestra again, the “strings” in Ghost in the Moon for example sound really, really artificial … Aaaand if they wouldn’t brickwall the shit out of the whole thing, that I wouldn’t mind either. Some tracks are real close to Dark Passion Play in terms of compression and clipping; it’s not a fun listen in that regard …

    Reaction videos (to music)

    You literally just have to record yourself watching and reacting to it. It’s hysterically close to being as minimalistic as possible.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    hm I think it is an improvement. Not a big fan of Jay-Z at all, but I like the idea of that kind of service at least being around. I can see though, why this is somewhat niche. I highly doubt that it is anywhere close to noticeable, from what the spectrogram suggests, the files they use actually are a good bit better than those of a CD. That said, nobody could possibly tell anyway just by listening. > Just saying though, I don’t care if no one does. Anyway, I don’t feel like advertising; I just remembered someone aked about high-res Nightwish some time ago, so there is that.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    This is funny, there is this online service called Tidal that claims to offer high res music files and I thought it is kind of bollocks given that there no *better* version to buy that the 24bit/48kHz version of EFMB but they actually seem to offer the original master files with 24bit/96kHz for streaming. No idea why they are not for regular digital purchase but this is legit awesome. Someone asked where to get high res files some time ago, so I guess this is the place to go. You have to rip it with Audacity though, I guess.
