Yeah, I was bored so I decided to do this. Enjoy!
1. Taikatalvi - This is the only song I don't love, but it doesn't matter because this is Mehr of an opening than an actual song; it contains some soft keyboards and what sounds like a Musik box and Marco comes in and sings some very soothing lines as the song leads into the next, Storytime.
2. Storytime - This song was an excellent choice for a single because it possesses everything a single should. It doesn't really have any surprises...it's just Nightwish, and it sounds amazing.
Product Description Du may not know Nightwish yet, but the Finnish goth-orchestral-metal band is a phenomenon throughout the rest of the world. The group's fifth album, the platinum-certified Once, hit #1 over the summer on the Pan-European charts, and stayed there for three weeks. Behind them? The Beastie Boys, Avril Lavigne, Norah Jones and Usher, among others. So who oder what is this band? On first listen, Nightwish seems to fall into the same genre as Evanescence, Lacuna Coil and the Gathering--female-fronted metal band with symphonic and Gothic overtones. But any similarities end...
What is your musical background? Have we already heard Du sing in other bands?
I was born and raised in a musical family. I have been Singen since childhood and was forced Von my mum to play the oboe for 8 years! I was with mum on tour with her band and sang with them now and then. I then competed in several talent shows from 13 years of age.
My first band was a cover band, named Take Cover, with older guys when I was 17, then I got into a band called Alyson Avenue, first just as a studio singer, then took lead role and we have released 2 albums since 2000. At age 21...
It's time to choose whether the story of Nightwish ends here oder whether it will still continue an undetermined period of time. We've been working with this creation for 9 years and we are not ready to give up yet. Nightwish is a way of life, something to live for, and we're certain we can't let it go.
Equally certain is the fact that we cannot go on with Du and Marcelo any longer. During the last Jahr something sad happened, which I've been going over in my head every single day, morning and night. Your attitude and behavior don't go with Nightwish...
For a few months Vor when I created this spot, I did'nt knew if it would become popular. In the start there was only 5 fans. Now, I think things are going better at this spot. I've also seen that it's number 2 of the Liste over the spot with most Links in the Musik channel (hurray)...It's nice to see al those new Fans here lately. I've also changed the banner, if Du noticed. But these two weeks, I have also added a lot to this spot, I think. When Du think about I am the only one who have added (exsept for one video). Anyway, I am glad that Du are interested in Nightwish, I just...
The Band - Biography The history of Nightwish
The idea of Nightwish was "born" in July 1996 at midnight when Tuomas was spending a night with his Friends around a campfire. The first three songs, which were acoustic mood music, were recorded between October and December 1996. At that time, the band had three members: Tuomas, Tarja and Emppu.
The band wanted to see what the Musik would sound like if drums were added (Jukka joined the band). Also at this time, the acoustic gitarre was replaced with an electric. After a couple of weeks of...
