How can one album win so damn hard? IT BOGGLES MY MIND.

If you like Nightwish, get this album. Now. Seriously. Run out, buy it. Download it. Something.

If you don't like Nightwish, get it anyway.

It's very different from the early stuff - It basically takes the style they developed on Century Child and Once farther.

It can be described as a better thought out, better executed and more powerful version of Once.

It seems to be getting very mixed reviews - But that is to be expected. Those that hated Once will hate this. On Metal Archives, all the reviews are 90%+, or below 50%.

I cannot express in mere words how awesome this album is. The singer isn't as good as Tarja, but the rest of the album makes up for that completely.

Nightwish is a horrible, blasphemous abomination witch feeds on emo kids who dont know what metal is. Their singer is crapp and should slit her own wrist along with the rest of the band.

You didn't actually have to open this thread, you know.

I'm not emo, and I usually listen to speed metal and death metal. I know what metal is. And I love Nightwish.

Yes, I'm responding to a troll, I know, but replace "Nightwish" with "Evanescence" and you'll probably be slightly more accurate. Wink Nightwish is not remotely emo.

/yes, shoot me

Evan 'please cut my head off im in pain' essence is also emo, but nightwish is emo too. They dress emo 'life sux so we have to dress in black, wear back makeup and look sad' and sing emo songs. Their videos are a joke too. There is nothing about them thats not emo.


And it was not a troll btw it was an ATTACK!!!

By definition, trolling means intentionally trying to incite anger by disagreeing violently and absurdly with as many people as possible.

For example, walking into a Linux convention ranting about how much you like Windows Vista.

Or posting in a Nightwish thread about how much you hate Nightwish.

Unfortunately for your forum access, trolling happens to be against the rules.

Posting in a public forum thats open to anyone and voicing your opinion is not a troll as long as its backed by an argument. Trolling would be to go to the official nightwish forum and post that they are crap, not posting in a thread on a games forum. By posting something here, you must accept he fact that others may disagree with you. You dont have copyright on the use of the term so dont go throwing it about left and right.

If you refuse to accept this, maybe you should reconsider your music taste preferences. And you would not have taken any offence unless there was a hint of truth in what I wrote.


As far as the 'quality' of nightwish, feel free to ask anyone with the slightest knowledge about music/human voice what they think. And when I say 'slightest knowledge' I do not mean a record company/managers that manufacture bands just to make money.

Here's a thought.. let people listen to who/what ever they wish.. I listen to anything from Frank Sinatra to Linkin Park.. I dont give a flying fu.. if some random guy on a board thinks they are loosers or Emo .. accually I normally even care to respons to such childish reply's but hey I had 1 minute to waste before going to work.. oh and to stick the subject.. anyone know if there are songs/videos from the new album up on youtube (or anywhere) yet? would like to hear some before I buy.

Exactly my thought too. If someone wants to start a thread about some new rap album, I'm not going to come barging in and whining throughout dozens of posts about how much I hate rap. I'm just not going to post there, because I don't like rap, and therefore I cannot have anything positive to contribute to such a thread.

Hi there, I am a educated bassist, I've been studying music theory for about five years now, and I'm also studying singing. I spend most of my free time playing, listening to, or writing music. I am a professional musician, and I earn my paycheck through music. You could say that, as a educated musician and a learned singer, I know a bit about music/human voice.

Nightwish is a interesting band, with a very good singer. The music is for the most part well written, and the singer is both skilled and has a good voice. Sure, there are better singers, but calling her bad is just plain wrong. All in all, it is a interesting band that displays proficency above what most metal bands today show.

Go back under your bridge.

Attack people? Stop putting words in my mouth. I attacked the band. Nothing contructive dont say anything at all? I said something constructive, I said how horrible they are.

Hi I'm napoleon!

Sure there are better singers...who sings Opera. The singer sounds like she once tried to become an opera singer but was kicked out of the academy because she had no talent what so ever.

Well said. I love all kinds of music, metal more than others. And Nightwish is NOT crap. You can argue emo this and emo that...who cares. I listened to The Cure back in the day as well as listening to Metallica. So what if it's emo or whatever? What difference does it make? It's better than all the nu-metal thats being played on crap radio, and at least these people PLAY their instruments instead of all the crap bands out today.

SO give it a break. I mean, after all, you lack the imagination to come up with a decent name anyways Mr. level80uberruler, so you shouldn't talk Rolling Eyes

OK OT: Yes there are videos for Amaranth on YouTube and Dailymotion (Dailymotion is better, at least they don't take their stuff down because of being sued by Viacom), and Amaranth is my favorite song of the bunch. I still liked Tarja but this girl is pretty nice.

I'm starting to like the album lots myself, Anette (the new singer) isnt too bad for having been in an Abba cover band previously.

Big test will be when I see them live next year, I saw one of the last gigs before Tarji got the boot, and it was amazing.
