This thread is dedicated to the most amazing and beautiful person on Earth: the unique Tarja Turunen.

Just like her looks, her voice reminds you of an angel, her heart is pure, her eyes jewels .

They say that angels fall first, Tarja did fall when she had to leave Nightwish but she wasn't dead to the world. In deep silent and seeking for a new reign, she worked hard and thank God it wasn't the end of our hopes.
http://ups.imagup.com/07/1266489383.gif

Listening to her is like walking in the air, with her damned and divine voice, she gives you a wanderlust.

Tarja you are true inspiration to your millions of fans and from the first time I laid my eyes on you, I saw heaven in your eyes.

Tarja is a mediocre soprano whose voice and looks neverthless suited well with Nightwish' escapistic fantasy style. She actually suited better to the band than their current singer. Best Tarja-era Nightwish album is Century Child, dark, heavy and atmospheric.

Unfortunately, Tarja and her husband have gigantic egoes which meant the band ceased to be functional until they were dumped. Sadly, without Nightwish and Tuomas' genious songwriting, Tarja is pretty much dead in the water.

I´m one of those that hates Nightwish without Tarja.
I gave it a try but I didn´t like it at all.


Nightwish became repetitive after Century Child, I´m sorry but while listeing to any alum after Century child is like listeing to the same album over and over again :shrug:

Toumas is a genious, but seriously, he has taken that poet and that Nightwish´s sould things far to seriously.
sometimes I think what the hell was Toumas smoking :o

Toumas said that he can´t write more songs for Tarja to sing, and damn he was right, his lyrics have stopped being fantastic and become somewhat an attempt to be a great songwriter (poet he would say).

Still Nightwish remains as one of my favorite bands (with Tarja only)


I wouldn´t call Tarja a mediocre soprano, true she is not the best soprano in metal for sure, but she is definitely not mediocre :shrug:


I love Tarja :inlove: :worship:

Actually Tarja is an awesome metal soprano, but that's largely because there are very few real sopranos in metal. For example, Sharon den Abel is a mezzo-soprano. What I meant that compared to bona fide opera sopranos, Tarja doesn't compare.

About Nightwish later albums, both Once and Dark Passion Play suffer from being somewhat overdone. They are a mixture of very radio/MTV-friendly short songs, and massive epics with heavy orchestration. Both albums contain many good songs, but as a whole they come across as being somewhat disjointed and too 'poppy'. Also, Anette's voice is bit too 'thin' for most Nightwish songs, and she can't sing some of the Tarja-era songs.

Having said that, I still eagerly await their next offering. Perhaps Anette can do better in that: she had no input for Dark Passion Play, the album was already done except the vocals. As soon as she joined the band, she was given the songs "Ok, sing these." Not the best way to start...

Bonus: 8Pjh0visgJI

'Bless the Child' is a great example what Nightwish is/was at its best. Tarja soaring, song with trademark Tuomas hooks, energetic playing by the band.

MaBaker
Feb 19th, 2010, 03:23 PM
Unfortunately, Tarja and her husband have gigantic egoes which meant the band ceased to be functional until they were dumped.
Tuomas' ego ain't that small either. Tarja wanted to go solo. She gave them 2,5 years notice and Dark Passion Play was supposed to be her last album with them, but he decided it was better just to dump her on his own terms.
What I meant that compared to bona fide opera sopranos, Tarja doesn't compare.
Of course, but there is a difference between her voice at the beginning of Nightwish and now. It suffered a lot, but she chose what she did/ still doing instead of concentrating on opera only. I agree that Century child is their best album, though her voice was definitely at its best on Oceanborn and Wishmaster. I won't comment on NW with Anette...

Like in many bands which are dominated by one person (see: James Hetfield, Steve Harris, Tony Iommi), Tuomas goes crazy if everything is not done like he wants. He also had lots of problems with guitarist Emppu. At one time all the frictions got so bad that Tuomas thought Nightwish was finished and actually asked Sonata Arctica's vocalist if he had any job for him...

Yes, Tarja planned to go solo anyway at some point. The problem was not so much Tarja, in fact, but her husband, who was REALLY disruptive and basically saw the Nightwish as a tool to promote himself and Tarja.

TARJA TURUNEN Issues Update On New Solo Album - Feb. 17, 2010
Former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen recently entered Petrax Studios in Hollola, Finland to begin recording her new solo album, "What Lies Beneath", for a late 2010 release. She writes on her blog, "Some of you were wondering that 17 songs is quite much for an album. Not all the songs are going to end up on the actual album. We need bonus tracks and b-sides for different territories and singles. In the worldwide release, there are always countries asking for bonuses. On my album you can expect to have around 11-12 songs. I am lucky though to have more than enough material."

She adds, "The band recordings are pretty much done now. We still need the keyboards and cello parts. These two instruments are not going to be recorded here at Petrax, but both Christian (Kretschmar) and Max (Lilja) are recording in their home studios.

"We had some guests in Hollola today. Max helped us to contact musicians from Lahti Symphony Orchestra to record a string quartet. Max played himself the cello parts and did the arrangement for the quartet. The recordings went really well and the sound I was seeking for was accomplished.

"I read in the blog that many [fans] were surprised to see how fast the recordings are progressing. Have in mind that we have been working, discussing and living with these songs for nearly two years in some cases. So at the moment of the actual recording, everything is very clear already.

"Tomorrow the vocal session will begin, so wish me good luck."

Turunen previously stated about "What Lies Beneath", "The process for my second album started back in June 2008. Among the first songs that my friends and I composed at that time, a character called Naiad was born. The fantasy story of Naiad gave me the idea for the album title and for the whole album concept: 'What Lies Beneath'.

"It has been wonderful to be able to brainstorm again and decide the direction the album is going to take. I hope that you will be surprised again by my work; because that's the way I like it."

Turunen will perform a special "Classic and Divine" opera rock show with a symphonic orchestra and choir on June 12, 2010 at the Miskolc International Opera Festival at at the Miskolc Ice Hall in Miskolc, Hungary. Tarja's two-hour set will include a selection of the best-loved songs from her "My Winter Storm" solo album, classical gems, unpredictable rock covers, tracks from her career with NIGHTWISH, and songs from her upcoming album, "What Lies Beneath". She will be accompanied by her own band, a symphonic orchestra and a choir.

Turunen recently recorded three songs for a Finnish Christmas album, produced by Olli Ahvenlahti. According to Turunen, this was "a charity project for missionary workers in Finland."

Tarja's last album, "My Winter Storm", was re-released in January 2009. This double CD "extended special edition" was packed with 32 tracks, including the CD "My Winter Storm" with the addition of the song "The Seer" in its original version. The bonus disc presented several new tracks, remixes and live recordings. Among them, the new song "Enough" and "The Seer", this time featuring a duet with German rock star Doro Pesch
