    Nightwish Off Topic

    There is quite some stuff to read in that book, I bought my copy (not signed unfortunately) last year and I like it a lot. I'm going to re-read it again when I have the time. For me it has been far more enjoyable than Dark Passion Gallery (okay, that book consists only of pictures and a foreword) or Once Upon a Nightwish (sure, reading about the early days was very interesting but the tension towards the end... the good old NW soap opera drama).

    Game of Thrones

    It looks like Sansa is not very pleased to have Dany in Winterfell. Which is understandable because she propably sees in Dany the daughter of the Mad King and doesn't really trust her. I'm more than curious how this scene will continue and what will happen if Jon gets to know the truth about his parents. Can it not be April already?!

    The Old Era

    Haha, don't worry. It seems like I haven't seen this gem before either. It already looks like something you should drink with care. Besides, it looks like something I wouldn't drink at all. Love the face expressions of this very special "wine tasting".

    Food to die for

    That stuff, the rolled ones but without whipped cream, is a traditional food around the new year here as well. We call them Eiserkuchen or Piepkuchen. What is the Dutch name for it?

    Der musikalische Jahresrückblick 2018

    Ist es denn schon wieder soweit? Erstmal ein frohes neues Jahr euch allen. Top Alben 2018 Amorphis - Queen of Time (einfach nur gut, mein Lieblingsalbum des vergangen Jahres), Northward - Northward, Dark Sarah - The Golden Moth, Korpiklaani - Kulkija, Elvellon - Until Dawn Flop Alben 2018 Sirenia - Arcane Astral Aeons (die werden irgendwie von Album zu Album langweiliger), Powerwolf - The Sacrament of Sin (irgendwie das gleiche Problem wie bei Sirenia) Beste Songs des Jahres Unter anderem Cellar Darling - Insomnia, Arion - At The Break Of Dawn, Northward - Storm in A Glass, Amorphis - Message In The Amber, Beast in Black - Sweet True Lies, Santiano - Mädchen von Haithabu, Amaranthe - Countdown, Wardruna - Völuspá, Follow The Cipher - Valkyria und Dark Sarah - Trespasser. Schlimmste Songs des Jahres Wie immer der Standard Radiokram?! Obwohl ich bin mittlerweile dazu übergegangen, das ich wenn ich mal Radio höre, WDR 4 höre, das geht noch von der Musik her. Neuentdeckungen Wardruna, Arion und Elvellon Bestes Konzert Nightwish in Oberhausen Bestes Festival Gilt das MPS als Festival? Darauf freue ich mich 2019 Neue Musik von Delain und Eluveitie. Anscheinend kommt auch ein neues Sabaton Album. Dann hätte ich gerne auch noch was neues von Sonata Arctica und Epica. Speaking of Epica, freue mich sehr sie wieder live zu sehen. Zwar erst im Oktober aber Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude. Und das erste Konzert des Jahres ist auch schon in Sicht - Korpiklaani und Turisas in Tilburg (NL) nächsten Monat. 2019 wird interessant.

    Last Sunday we actually had some snow and not just a few snowflakes. Spent most of that day outiside with visiting a christmas market. Unfortunately it was all gone on the next day. In the next days the forecast says that there will be plenty of rain. It is always the same around christmas. Grey, rainy and temperatures around 10 C. The best thing about christmas apart from the food is that I don't have to work neither to study which is a great relief because the last weeks were insane.

    The NW Songs Commentary

    The Meadows of Heaven also appear in My Dying Bride's Sear MCMXCIII from the Turn Loose the Swans album which is one of Tuomas' favourite songs. Aaron Stainthorpe seems to be quite fond of that term and now Tuomas seems to be as well.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Good to hear that people enjoyed the Wembley show. Next Saturday will be the final gig of the Decades Tour already. I wish I could go there but unfortunately it is impossible. They should keep Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean for the next tour. I mean, the song is so much live, Floor just sounds amazing and Marco is also doing a good job with the vocals.

    Spent the weekend with baking a lot of different christmas cookies. Unfortunately the weather isn't really winter like at the moment but that doesn't surprise me at all. My guess is that we won't get a white christmas this year either. I have a couple of exams in the next weeks and there are a lot of other things to do. I'm looking forward to have a break in a few weeks because work is really, really exhausting. The best thing right now is my advent calendar because it is a tea advent calendar. Way better than a chocolate one.

    Epica

    Epica are going to do some special shows for the 10th anniversary of the Design Your Universe album next year. I'm going to see them in Oberhausen, just bought my ticket today and I'm already looking forward to see them live again. Design Your Universe was my first Epica album and I still like it a lot.

    The Old Era

    Well, after almost twenty years, Floor should also have some knowledge about the business and she doesn't seem to mind going on tour. Anette should have been aware of the fact that being a member of Nightwish means a lot of touring and if you can't deal with that, you are clearly the wrong person for the job. After reading those parts from Marco's biography, I didn't even know that the mood in the band with Anette was even worse than during those weeks before firing Tarja.

    Eure nächsten Konzerte

    Das erklärt dann, warum das so teuer war und das auch die Shirts von Beast in Black genau so viel gekostet haben wie die Nightwish obwohl BiB nur die Vorband waren und bei weitem nicht so bekannt sind wie Nightwish. Was ich mir nächstes Jahr definitiv anschauen möchte (wenn ich eine Karte bekomme) sind Epica in Oberhausen im Oktober. Die geben ein paar besondere Konzerte zum 10. Geburtstag vom Design Your Universe Album und das ist das einzige Konzert in Deutschland. Und Epica live macht auch immer wieder Spaß.

    Ladies and gentlemen, first snow of the season today. Winter is here. Actually it is more like a mixture between snow and rain accompanied by a strong and icy wind. Still not enough rain though because the past months have been way too dry and the nature still needs rain. Anyway, the current weather makes want to hide under a blanket with a hot cup of tea and a good book.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    It was a great show, even better than the last one I saw three years ago at the same location. Too bad that there was still no Deep Silent Complete. I would have loved to hear that song live. But apart from that I really liked the setlist. The Greatest Show On Earth brought me close to tears again and Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean was amazing. It is supposed to be the Decades tour, so, why wasn't there any song from Dark Passion Play? Or did I miss something in my excitement? Anyway, I made it to the second row again with a perfect view on the stage, especially the keyboards. What can I say? Nightwish concerts are great fun because you will always meet great people there who enjoy the same music like you.
