I wasn't really that big on them before DPP, and before that I only had Once and Over the Hills and far away. I only heard the earlier stuff for the first time a few months ago, and I still haven't listened to Century Child.

You have to listen to Century Child. It was their best album Razz

Yeah a lot of people have said so, my friend bought it yesterday and she's coming round tomorrow with it, I'm looking forward to it! I've heard a few songs from there, like Everdream and Slaying the Dreamer and that's got me thinking it's a good albulm already.

I personally think it's darker than the other albums for how it sounds.

It just sounds darker. It's still what you'd call Nightwish, just a darker version.

I've been listening to it for a while now, some of my favourites on there. Good cd, still feel bad for Tuomas being depressed though...

In 2004 one of my friends was listening to "Phantom of the Opera", she looked really into it so I asked her which band it was. She told me it was Nightwish, a metal band with an amazing opera singer. I was intrigued so she made me listen to it and I hated it lol. Razz Several weeks later I was still obssessed with the concept so I bought "Once" and by November, I was hooked! Laughing

Nightwish was gifted to me by the Shiny Metal Gods of Metal.
I was leaving my house after my annual Halloween party when my friend noticed a huge cd wallet on the side of the road. Knowing it must belong to one of my neighbors I took it back to the house to see if I could find it's home. But first, of course, I wanted to listen to what was in it.
I picked a disk at random and lo and behold twas Nightwish - Once. It blew my mind. I'm from Texas and the Femmetal just doesn't get much air play here, so it was like nothing I'd heard before. By the time the cd came to Creek Mary's Blood I knew I was forever changed. That magical cd wallet also had Angels Fall First and Oceanborn, because my Metal Gods love me.
I did find the neighbor and returned the wallet. Then ran quick as I could to ebay to find some of my own. Oh yes, my collection is now vast and last year I saw them in San Antonio. Then I willed them this year to come to Austin and they did and I've got meet and greet tickets and am so excited I could squeak.
They has forever won my geeky fandom.

Hm...it's tough to remember...I believe it was through listening to Within Temptation, when I was looking for as much female fronted metal as I could find. Maybe someone recommended them... don't know honestly, it was a long time ago. My first CD was Once.

My cousin heard me playing some Within Temptation stuff, and he suggested that I listen to Nightwish. So I downloaded Wishmaster, Wish I Had An Angel and Walking In The Air. I listened to them a few times, but I really wasn't a fan. So after a couple months, I decided to get a few more songs form them. Now I am a super fan. So...I'd like to say thanks to my cousin for getting me into Nightwish and metal.

Re: Who or what got you into Nightwish?

I got into Nightwish right about the time Tarja was fired, after Evanescence had first lead to me find bands like Within Temptation. I ended up wanting more music in the same style, but at the time I didn't really know where to start or what to look for, and Nightwish was one of the only few bands that kept coming up.

I listened to some samples on Amazon.com and initially didn't like it at all, but a friend of mine, who was also searching for new bands (although in a slightly different direction) had actually ended up with some Nightwish music. She didn't particularly like it at the time (now she likes them too), but I asked her to bring what she had over so I could hear some full songs.

The songs were Ever Dream, Gethsemane, She Is My Sin, Bless The Child, Lagoon, and Phantom Of The Opera - and I absolutely loved each of them! I don't know why I hadn't liked the samples before, but I was completely blown away by the music then. I think the look of amazement and rapture on my face actually scared my friend. tongue

It was odd though, because at first I felt really uncomfortable with liking Nightwish - like it was something bad or inappropriate. I used to sneak onto the computer when no one was around and just sit there and listen with headphones on as kind of my guilty pleasure. I don't know why that was - maybe it was the "Gothic" tinges to the music or just that they were my first metal band. I of course eventually realized that was just stupid - even my mom likes Nightwish now and I listen to them casually almost everyday, but looking back on it is funny. Laughing

My uncle gave me a Nuclear Blast CD which had came free with some magazine and it had Wish I Had An Angel on it Smile This was in 2005 so not long before Tarja went Sad I used to listen to that track over and over again Razz Then began searching for other songs. Also when they were on the cover of Kerrang back in 05 got me even more interested Smile

I do not remember...I just remember that I heard something beautiful
As a little girl I liked pop latino-rap music...
Thank you God I am a metalhead now...
Many thanks to that girl 'cause she is the one who got me into NW...
As I was getting older...I saw a pic of them and tought "WOW! That guy with beard is cool....that girl has beautiful green eyes(Anette)"..and fell in love with NW.

And now...people are going crazy when I say the letter N....'cause they know I will say NW
