i dont think you understand quite well what i said, or what contradiction means, but no, i didnt contradict myself at all. the genre metal is a sausage fest, the band nightwish has a larger female following than most other metal bands. nightwish alone doesnt shape the genre. i never said they werent metal, i just implied that i didnt like them and that they have a lot of female fans.

most is not synonymous with all, by the way. and the term "ive" means that the following statement refers to me.


You don't like nightwish, so why are you posting in here? why did you do it in the first place?

Just leave, you made your worthless point of letting us know you dont like nightwish,


ANYWAY


To be back on the topic, who here has seen nightwish live? i saw them on once upon a tour and it was awesome.

is there a rule that says we can only make positive posts, i didnt remember seeing one in any rules/faqs i saw but i could be mistaken

what kind of post has worth? is your who saw nightwish on tour trivia somehow meaningful? explain what makes a meaningful post in a way that could make a nihilist understand, wait... thats impossible

Great live band, it was a very good show, superb playing/singing, good setlist althouh I missed a few songs there (Over the hills, anything from Oceanborn...)

Just shut up and leave, kid. You don't even know what nihilsm is and then noone wants to read posts like yours. Be constructive, talk about music here and if you don't like the band then don't come here. Thank you.

i love you. talking down to, and insulting a person is a great way to get them to listen to your suggestions. your logic is impeccable. i feel a great urge to be constructive and talk about music or leave now. impressive. are you like a psychology major? do you have a phd? if not i really think thats your calling.

und, du kannst mich mal am arsch lecken.

oh yeah and when you try to tell people what they do and dont know, using commonly misspelled words such as "noone" which should be no one doesnt make you look very credible. just looking out for you friend

that was great.

Btw, I read that they are already recording and mixing new songs... I wonder how Tuomas does that without even knowing the voice of the new singer....

They tried but didnt have some permit so... went home again... I dunno, maybe they have since then. (not so useful)

Sigh. I realise that as possibly the most nightwish-obsessed person on UG I am gonna be the only person to keep resurrecting this thread (flogging a dead horse, whatever) But I found this.... new drum recording for the new album....... what do people think?

(you have to get about 3/4 way through the clip to hear the drums)

Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

"Known some call is air am."

She's recording Finnish christmas music nowadays... pfft.

And the drumming sounds very typical for Nightwish, I'm not expecting a big difference in their instrumental parts.

Hmm... I dunno about this band. I can't remember what song it was, but my girlfriend had it on her MySpace. It was good and all, but I just think her voice was too high for the music, and it kinda irritated me... I dunno, I'll like into them a bit more, they'll probably grow on me later.

You get used to it I think in later songs the operatic stuff adds more atmosphere to it. I doubt I'll like whatever tramp replaces her

Lol, no worries man. I'll see if my girlfriend can bring around a couple of cd's when she comes around today. I'd like to try to get into them, I like the music, but the vocals annoy me.

#102
ah well, screw Tarja if she doesn't want to be in the band anymore. she never helped write any of the songs anyway, so bring on the new vocalist, and maybe a new potential songwriter.
#104
it isn't that she didn't want to be in the band. The band sacked her the day after they recored End of an Era, cause she was a bitch. They are going to have a hard time finding some one with a vocal range like Tarja. Good luck to them

^^^ It wasn't that she was a bitch, it's that her husband was a bit of a dick and cos she was naive he became her manager, and she's signed over pretty much everything to him...... he still gets a say in her music and lots of profit if they ever get divorced. After he became her manager he followed her everywhere and started being like 'Tarja won't play this venue, it's too small/smoky/tickets aren't expensive enough' and cancelling a gigs without even telling her about them so she could practice for her solo stuff. He forced the band to stop travelling by tourbus and get flights everywhere for tarja's voice, and started making her travel seperately with him so the band only saw her on stage, then they would leave straight after. Some people say he's got her in a slavery contract.... I'm not sure if she's that stupid... Anyway the band always hated him and they just got fed up of him thinking he could control the band just because tarja was the frontwoman.

16.01.2007 - The auditions for the new vocalist have ended
The auditions for the new vocalist have ended, with more than 2000 demos sent to us. (yesterday, 15.1. we received 120 demos!) A big thanks to everybody! So please don`t send anymore demos, since now we need to concentrate on finishing the album recordings.

The new vocalist will be announced at the end of May, together with the release of a new single.


huh? I missed that one. Well let's hope she's worth the wait. If the new album is good, we could even hope for a good tour?

Excellent.
#107
Even regular nightwish fans, not raging fangirls like me, will be interested so i bet tickets will be a bitch when they tour
#108
Since they're probably still signed with Nuclear Blast, they'll promote them well enough to get enough people interested. And yeah, tickets might become expensive. Well they were 35 when I saw them, so not too bad.
#109
mmm, only 12pounds to see them in london! I think they are still with nuclear blast so should be *****d pretty well..... cant wait......
#110
LOL, in the first band I was in, we ended up with a singer who was a big Nightwish fan. We did a cover of 'Over the Hills and Far Away'. It's a fun song to play, but it was shite with a male singer, haha.

Probably completely unrelated to the current topic, but meh, whatever.

And does anyone know where I could get the End of an Era DVD? Amazon has it at $40 (ripoff).
#116
I just discovered them not long ago. I really like their songs. And the vocals, for that matter. The first song I heard was Phantom of the Opera. That lead me to want to hear more out of curiosity, which led to Nemo, Wishmaster, Wish I had and Angel, Over The Hills and Far Away(I know, it was only a cover), and Nightquest.

Try NWshop.fi but i expect living in america you would have to pay postage that will make it about 40$, I dont know exchange rates but i paid 20 quid for mine i think thats about average priced?

So I did check out the store and use the converter and it's about $38

I guess it depends if I like Nightwish enough to cash out that much for one DVD or just get Therion - Celebrators of Becoming instead.
