So… I love Nightwish to bits - all albums - with Tarja, Annette, Floor.
All good, in different ways…
I also love Auri - the Nightwish folk/metal offshoot…
But… I struggle to find any other similar bands that I like… I have tried to like Epica and Within Temptation, but neither worked for me - compared to Nightwish. Just too many ‘Metal’ Guitars - and not enough ‘contrast’ like there is in Nightwish… If that makes sense…? (Nightwish IMO is really Keyboard heavy - not Guitar heavy).
So… Ladies & Gentlemen of the Forum… Make your suggestions… I will - at least have a look and listen via YouTube…!!
(I have been looking & listening to Battle Beast today. Also from Finland… like NW.
Great singer - but maybe still too many Guitars…?)
PS. The (only) other ‘Metal’ band I like is Evanescence.
