Friday Sinema – Nightwish

Happy Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious? I didn’t even realize the significance until I got ready to prepost this. *bwahahaha* This new-to-me group seems a little perfect for today. Must have been kismet! Y’all can blame The Only for my newest musical obsession. She’s the one who turned me on to this group. Who–or what–is Nighwish? When I first heard/saw their videos, I thought they were a Celtic/Viking/Metal band. Turned out I was pretty close. From wikipedia: Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen. Wikipedia
Genres: Symphonic metal; Albums: Endless Forms Most Beautiful, Dark Passion Play, Once, More; Lead singers: Tarja Turunen (1996 – 2005), Floor Jansen (Since 2013), Anette Olzon (2007 – 2012)

I put them on Spotify. I’m not that big a metal head but sometimes, it works. And the Cetltic overlays can be sweet! Not like…sugary but like…awesome. 😉 So anyway, their videos are a bit bizarre but on a Friday? Why the hell not?!? Check them out.

And this video, officially recorded at a concert, shows more of their blend of metal and Celtic. Cool stuffs. Just sayiin’… Have a great weekend!

  1. This is our second Friday the 13th this year. And I was getting ready to release a book then, too. Coinky-dink? Yeah, pretty much. I wanted Dying Embers to release on Valentine’s Day and that there was a Friday the 13th right there just put icing on the cake. This time, I want BloodFlow to release on 11/24 (in time for people to read while they’re waiting for Thanksgiving dinner or while in line on Black Friday) and have it available for pre-order today (which will end up being tomorrow). Not superstitious – just aware of dates.

    It’s too early for me to listen to Celtic metal. Maybe I’ll come back later for the thrashing.

Got something to say?
