Just in case they haven't made it to the thread


I dunno but I just really dig this song. I just wish they'd have made the full video that they're "shooting" in this video. lol

So glad that she is out of the band now. I saw them live with Tarja and with her and she was horrible, I also thought the band dynamic was effected by her they seemed to be less awesome. Oddly though I really liked the first disc she was on but not the second one. Very happy that Floor J will be the new singer, she's amazing.

I havent really listened much since Century Child which was really their last great record IMO. Dark Passion Play was good, don't get me wrong, but it just didn't grab me like Oceanborn and Century Child. To me Nightwish just isn't really Nightwish without Tarja, so I won't comment on their latest release. I will say though that the last Xandria record really reminded me of how much I loved those earlier Nightwish records.

Nightwish is in my top 3 bands. I loved the feeling Anette brought to the band, so I'm sad it's over. It was a kind of childlike wonder, and I know it probably flowed from Tuomas but Anette channeled it so well. Was Tarja better? I don't know, but I enjoyed them both.

I saw them live with Floor, and she's a great replacement. I hope she stays. She has a more... Classy, refined, mature feeling, yet has enough playfulness that I imagine Marco and her will be very entertaining working together. Not necessarily better, but different, and certainly welcome.

I remembered these guys this morning. When I first discovered them, I didn't know whether to be repelled or intrigued. Now I love it. A capella metal. You read that right. Oh yeah.


They occasionally do the self-aware cheesy, over-the-top kind of metal that I love so much:


They did a cover of Primo Victoria with the singer of Sabaton, Blind Guardian cover, and even did a Nightwish cover.

I'm such a bad metal fan....I can't keep track of who's in and who's out of which bands.

Also. I definitely gotta keep an ear out for that Van Canto certainly a unique way to perform.

I love this thread. What I love more is the amount of metal that I go for is in it. hehe

Just thought of a little metal related gem. The movie


For what it is, it's a pretty decent supernatural horror flick. It wasn't until about half way through that I remembered why the monsters looked so familiar.

I know. Lordi's kinda cheesy. But they do it pretty well. I was a fan once I realized they titled something "Arockalypse" and used the word "rockening". lol

Old school here.
Judas Priest, Iron Maiden...etc.
Cookie Monster is what ultimately turned me off.

Been playing guitar forever though and now build high gain tube amplifiers.
Guitars?
Jackson, Charvel, Kramer, LP homebrew, homemade Bich, Hamer Phantom, Aria LP Custom, and the wife has a Squier Strat.
Too many amps to name, as mentioned I'm a tube-aholic.

Long live rock!
