OMG…Nightwish!

I’ve just been introduced to Nightwish – the love child of heavy metal and opera – and I’ll be listening to more of their music in the future. For now, I just want to save this song to my blog so I can find it without relying on memory, or searching Youtube for hours.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Nightwish:

I know this kind of music won’t be to everyone’s taste, but look at those faces in the crowd! So young and so turned on to the music. They know the lyrics, just like the crowds at a ‘normal’ rock concert. It’s wonderful to see, because they are the ones who may advance the evolution of opera into a vibrant art form for the future.

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised as Evanescence was a huge phenomenon. This is from eleven years ago:

One of the things that always drew me to Metal was that it was melodic. Melody with a driving rhythm equals passion to my ears.

Anyway, it’s Monday morning, and Nightwish has given my day a fabulous start. I hope yours starts, or ends, as well. 🙂

cheers

Heavy Metal Opera…Epica

Blame Matthew Wright for this post. He’s a mad, Kiwi historian and author who just introduced me to a European phenomenon. I love it. Tell me what you think!

The two faces of Epica:

And then this:
