I’ve been a Nightwish fan for a long time now. I’ve been with them from the beginning. Wishmaster, Oceanborn. The band was absolutely stunning. With Tarja as lead vocalist, the band had something I always wanted in Music… A Metal band with an Opera twist. Metal goes brilliantly with violins an Orchestra, and the voice of Opera. Then came the bombshell… Tarja is leaving the band!
Today I learned that once again the band is dropping the vocalist, Anette. I am not sure what the reasons are, but it sounds like there was a clash in direction for the band going forward.
So once again I am sitting with one of my favourite bands without a vocalist… I hope they can pull through this one… for the better!
