New Nightwish Vocalist & Song
« on: May 24, 2007, 10:57:16 am »
Eva is out and they are annoucing the name of the new vocalist today. Anyone else listen to the song yet?

I think it's awful. Sounds like some horrible attempt of immitating the new Within Temptation release. Ugh. Even the mastering sounds all distorted and crappy. It physically hurts to listen to - it's that bad, honest.

Isn't the new Within Temptation just...Evanescence?

Listened.
Sounds like Once for the symphonic parts.
The voice is pretty... classical. Nothing special.
But there's no relation with Within Temptation, for me.
About the mastering, I wonder if it's not the quality of the file you got, more than the real quality.
For the music itself, it misses a bass, drums and guitars during the main part of the song.

(Anyway, excepted some pieces on Oceanborn, Nightwish isn't that great (imo), but I hope for some evolution. I can dream, I think)

I don't like her voice, it sounds poppy and not operatic at all. I can't believe on lastfm some people think she is better than Tarja.

I wasn't too fond of the new song either but then again I only like a few songs by Nightwish in the first place.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

Personally, i dont think you can replace the original lead singer of a band. Just ruins things. :(

I haven't bought Nightwish album since Wishmaster. And I won't probably if they don't improve and lot. It was quite a fall from Oceanborn to Wishmaster. Wishmaster was still album that is worth several listening sessions - barely. After that they have just made "listen once and then forget" music, imo. I hope that this new singer upgrades band's energy and creative potential to new heights. I might be in minority here but I always thought that Nightwish with Tarja had walked it's path long time ago (well - from times of Oceanborn, that is). Only time will tell if this change in lineup will improve dynamics of band. Their first mutual album might not tell everything 'bout their potential so I will wait to second one as well. Now I just have to try to listen their songs somewhere...
