    Nightwish is a great band!!!!!!!! Heavy metal with an orchestra, and an amazing singer. A great combination.

    It's a shame they kicked Tarja Turunen, I got their album with their new singer, she isn't as good. Tarja just released her new album this year. It's good, her new band can't compare to Nightwish though.


    Once is their best album by far to me. Planet Hell, Nemo and Dark Chest Of Wonders are all wicked songs. I also love their cover of Gary Moore's Over The Hills And Far Away.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    Hey! It's nice to see a thread devoted to Nightwish here, as of late they have become one of my favorite bands with and without Tarja. I highly recommend anyone reading this to pick up Once and Dark Passion Play. They are coming back to the States sometime in the spring or summer I believe and I'm gonna make sure that I get to check out one of their shows. Oh and also check out End of an Era their live DVD or just look it up on youtube.

    I've seen clips of that live DVD on You Tube. It looks great! Can you buy it in stores in the US or Canada?

    Not sure if you can pick it up at Best Buy or some place else, but I do know you can get if off of Amazon.

    I found the live DVD in a store for 30 bucks. It comes with two CD's as well. It's a great concert! Dark Chest Of Wonders, Nemo, Planet Hell, Over The Hills And Far Away and Wish I Had An Angel are my favorites from it. It's just a shame it is their last concert ever with Tarja. Her voice is a huge part of their unique sound.

    It is a shame that it is their last show with Tarja, she did give them a very unique sound, not that they aren't in their own right. I do really like the new disc with Anette Olzon. She most definitely sounds more like a pop singer, but good none the less. I've actually been listening to Dark Passion Play non-stop lately.

    Picked up End of an Era yesterday at FYE for $23, not too shabby for the DVD and two CD's. Before this all I had been doing in looking up the show on youtube, but having the whole show on hand is way better, obviously. And I have to say it, after watching the DVD Nightwish is quickly replacing VH as my favorite group. (At least VH IV, saw them but not the same for me)

    It is a great concert. I watched it every night for two weeks straight.

    I read a lot about Tarja leaving Nightwish. It seems one reason was Nightwish's keyboard player Tuomas had feelings for her and she married her manager instead.
    You can read Tarja's husband talk a lot about why she left band here....

    Well, Tuomas is not only the keyboard player, but also the mastermind of Nightwish. The band kicked Tarja because they thought that she more and more became a diva and seperated from the band. Tarja denies this.
    IMO, the main reason is the lack of understanding of the band what Tarja needs to do to keep her voice in shape during the tight tour schedule.

    I checked out the link you posted the other day by Tarja's husband, sounds like the group as a whole had some issues since they never talked to each other. I know I've heard about more than a few bands that work like that but it just seems odd, but it sounds oddly familiar to the VH issue with Alex's brother in law as manager.

    I' ve been listening to Dark Passion Play lately too, I really like Amaranth and Bye Bye Beautiful. Anette is a good singer. I still hope they get Tarja back though.

    The new video for "The Islander" I thought it was a pretty damn good video and I've liked the song a lot since I first heard it.
