Are you more the new Nightwish fan or you prefer the old Nightwish or both?

If you want to fight who is better Anette or Tarja then it's not the right place..So no fights just comment please Smile


I like both eras. There is no point to fight who has better voice Anette or Tarja IMO. They have completely different voices and I think they both have very nice ones. Tarja and Anette both are beautiful too. And the band is still the same, same sound, beautiful orchestra and choir parts same band members. Still there are Tuomas lyrics and Marco's vocals, Emppu guitar solos and Jukka playing drums. Very Happy Ok yes the singer is other but we have nine wonderful years with Tarja and many great albums with her. In the other hand we have one cool sounded album with Anette and there will be many more great albums to come you can be sure about it Very Happy

I only like the old era of NW. I'm a big fan of Tarja as well. I don't like the new era because I dont like Annete's voice.

I'm more of an "old Nightwish" fan. The new album just doesn't do it for me. The only song that sounds like a Nightwish song to me is The Poet and the Pendulum. I don't think Anette was the right fit for the band either. Her voice simply isn't strong enough to match the music. That is probably why Marco has more vocal parts than ever. So basically, for me, the magic is gone.

I love both eras....honesty,I think they had a few eras

I Angels fall first era-power metal with lots of acoustic songs

II Oceanborn and Wishmaster era-bombastic symphonic power metal,dramatic songs,grunts in a few

III Then things change with Century child.Songs are more soundtrack-oriented,you have more lovesongs,but there are still traces of old style in End of all hope,Bless the child.Marco is in.Tarja started singing normal,operatic vocals started to dissapear

VI Once and Dark passion play-now,old Oceanborn/Wishmaster style totaly vanished,we have something new.Power metal is dissapearing from their songs,they are going progressive,traces of industrial metal in WIHAA and BBB.

I like both eras myself. I do prefer the second half of the first era when Marco joined more than anything though. If you compare the two halves of the first era then you realise you could never really hear Sammi on bass. To me, it was like he didn't want to be heard but Marco is the complete opposite.

I really like the new era but I can't help but prefer the old era still. I shall probably come to accept it more once I see them in concert on the 29th March.

We shall see Razz

I like both...but I think I might be leaning more towards Anette now. Sometimes I feel like Tarja's voice is too overpowering for me..I like how Anette and Marco's voices mix so well together in the new album. Sure, it's a competely different sound to what we're used to, but I'm more than willing to give Anette a chance. Maybe it's cause I only discovered Nightwish AFTER Tarja was fired...

I love BOTH eras in NW, I appreciate and admire both singers too ( and I can find positive things in both singers for the band) because I'm a fan of the band inself, not singer's fan Razz

I think most people are like that. You do have to look at the whole band in Nightwish though else you only see a small part of them if you focus on the singer.

In fact I think NW is the only band I love the band itself...I mean if I'm listening to Epica I'm really not so fond of band as I'm fond os Simone's voice... Razz But yeah if thing comes to Nightwish. I really listen and I look for the band and the singer Very Happy

I am a bit torn between the old and the new. There is no doubt that Tarja is a fantastic singer but so is Annette, but in a different style. Annette is more of a rock chick whilst Tarja is a diva! No disrepect to Tarja was meant by that remark but I think that Annette has breathed new life into Nightwish.

I like both :]
Anette is very good live, she is nice and NW with her is very different. I still love Tarja solo, and I dont gat it, why fans think that with Anette it isnt real Nightwish. Guys are the same, and it's still fantastic band. When I read about Tarj's leaving my love to her become smaller. She is diva and her solo career is better to NW.
Now NW is a BAND not vocalist + others!

It's just gonna take time to adjust properly to Anette. Tarja was with them for 5 albums whilst Anette only has 1 album under her belt. People will come round to her with time and if they don't then they aren't really Nightwish fans but Tarja fans instead.

After listening to annette sing the old NW songs as well as the new NW songs at tuesday's london gig, I can safely say that although she can't hit the top register as well as tarja did and when she tries it comes out a little whining, she knows what range she has and that was apparent: especially during dark chest of wonders, the words "so long ago" in the song.
Her voice and marco's suit each other even better in live mode and I think she completes the band now. Tarja is gone, no harm in being fans of her and the band.
