    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I disagree here. Music is a great way to discuss political and societal issues, and it does not at all have to be "preaching". It can ask questions, make you think. Present you with perspectives. I feel like most people who accuse bands of preaching are misunderstanding the intent of the lyrics because they're getting way too defensive about the topics. This I agree with. Greta is simply a puppet, and so is every "climate kid". No child has enough knowledge and understanding to grasp the complexity of these issues. They're just yelling what the people behind them are telling them to yell. And that's sad. Kids should never be used this way.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I'm pretty sure that's a global thing. I read that between 2014 and 2019, the global market for DVDs and BluRays has been reduced by half

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    How do people not have a bluray player yet? It's been around for 13 years and became the industry standard for HD disks 11 years ago. Also, if I had none, I would just buy the bluray disc and pirate myself a digital download

    The Floor thread

    Floor just clarified that it isn't sure yet that Henk Poort will be there with Nightwish next year. She says the ambition is there, but they haven't discussed it yet (with Nightwish, presumably). https://www.ad.nl/show/vanuit-de-hele-wereld-reacties-op-floor-jansens-phantom-of-the-opera~abd349fc

    True, I think a large part of the reason for that is that Marco is playing his bass guitar, so he can't fully focus on vocals and can also not walk around on stage and interact with the other singer

    Lacuna Coil

    I just found this Sounds like we're lucky that Cristina didn't die when she was 12 o.O

    The Floor thread

    I'm seeing claims all over the internet that in January Floor is going to do shows without her band for the first time. People claiming that have not done their research. I've always loved recordings of the shows she did with a string quartet near the end of After Forever's lifespan:

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Haha, people on the internet can be like that. I have to say though, one of my first thoughts was also that it's not my favorite collection of Nightwish songs. But "Decades" in general is not, so I saw that coming.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I think you're reading things here that are not there. The person you quoted isn't "bashing pop" at all, he's merely stating that trying to please as many people as possible leads to the type of music we call pop music.

    Within Temptation II

    Random comment, but I only found out about this track years later, I think after Hydra was already out, because it wasn't on my CD (the only bonus track was "The Last Dance"). I love it though! Was a great day when I found out that music from The Unforgiving era existed that I had never heard yet.

    Lacuna Coil

    I am absolutely blown away by "Veneficium". Unbelievable, did not expect that from Lacuna Coil. Also, I've only listened to about half the album, so I look forward to finding any other potential gems Edit: Sword of Anger is definitely another favorite of mine!

    Interesting part there about her solo shows: Wat ga je precies doen tijdens die solotour? „Het moet een avondvullend programma worden, met natuurlijk de nummers uit Beste Zangers, maar mijn hele geschiedenis komt aan bod. Ook After Forever, ReVamp, Northward en Nightwish, maar dan aangepast, wat kleiner. Geen heftige, scheurende gitaren. Nou ja een beetje dan, het zou raar zijn als die helemaal ontbreken bij mij.” Translation: What exactly are you going to do during that solo tour? "It's supposed to be a full evening program, with of course the songs from Beste Zangers, but my entire history is covered. After Forever, Revamp, Northward and Nightwish too, but adapted, somewhat smaller. No tremendous, ripping guitars. Or well, a little bit, it would be strange if those were entirely absent in my show." Sounds pretty much like what I expected. Can't wait

    Epica

    I have a version with the wrong track too, but always found it kinda funny. I see it as a collector's item, the faulty first pressing of the CD I got the right version of the track as digital download from Nuclear Blast as soon as it become available. I remember being amazed at how big it was in file size, like they really gave people the highest quality imaginable... though I personally don't hear the difference with a regular MP3

    Alas, "Beste Zangers" didn't win the award tonight. It got 31% of the votes, earning it a 2nd place while the winner had 55%. I guess music TV isn't everyone's thing.

    Tomorrow after 20:30 CEST we will be able to vote for "Beste Zangers" here: avrotros.nl/live I looked for restrictions by country or something, but I'm not seeing anything, only that it's 1 vote per IP... so appearently you will all be able to vote
