This is really arb, but today while I was at work the whole day I was listening to nightwish (with the new lead singer)... and I watched some of their videos (like amaranth and the islander and bye bye beautiful)... I've fallen in love with that sound... those guitars!!!.... I wanna learn to play like them!

For some reason I Just can't get enough!

I agree, I love Nightwish biggrin.gif
For some reason, I even love the new Nightwish more then the old one... I've got nothing against Tarja (the former singer), but Anette (the new one) definetly brought something new to the band...

And we can't talk about Nightwish without mentioning Marco Hietala (bassist, singer, and who I have wrote a Wiki about tongue.gif ).. He's just awesome!!!

Love Tarot. Especially their latest album: Crows Fly Back. Ofc the music they create would be quite medicore if Marco did not sing in it smile.gif

And it's really good that in the new era of NW the lead guitar gets more and more role in the music. Until now it was just basic powerchord stuff and some galopping while Tuomas did all the music on the synth. For example I really like the solo of 7 days to the wolfs (on the new album) cool.gif

I actually don't like the old nightwish because of work: one guy at the office had his speakers on loud all day, everyday and kept playing like 1 song OVER and OVER.....

Nightwish with Tarja eventually gave me a headache, while listening to Annete reminded me of Disney pop singers.

hmmmm....

i think the new nightwish is cool and all but i miss the old singer...

i always loved the opera based vocals...the new one has a voice a little too "punky" for my tastes


but the new singer is very very pretty...i mean that will the most respect possible.

oh well...out with the old, in with the new i supposed.....oh and the bye bye beautiful music video also had a lot of pretty women...very different for metal, thats for sure but i like, its new.

I think the new and old Nightwish shouldn't be compared as the style is pretty different in the two albums. You can of course still hear that it is Nightwish, but there are things that have changed.
Though, Nightwish will always be an important part of my life as it was that band along with a few other artists that brought me into metal, transcribing, composing and classical biggrin.gif
