    Haven't seen many threads about bands that are actually good so here's one. I absolutely love everything about Nightwish. I love all of their albums but my favorite would have to be Once, and Gethsemane is my favorite song.

    Nightwish is pretty amazing. They're like the one band I still love even though they've changed singers twice. That could ruin a band but they pulled it off well. I really want to see them live next time they tour in my area. If you haven't heard of them, you should check out Kamelot. Nightwish and Kamelot were my favorites back when I heavily listened to Symphonic/Progressive Metal.

    I do believe Nightwish is a Starter band, when we were young, feeling like absolute badass metalheads listeing to Nightwish, Girls singing like Tatja and boys like Marco..

    Is one of the bands you grow up with and will always define your way up to the music world.

    Their tunes turn me back to my Adolesence..

    At least that's what hapened to me.

    I would not consider a band with 10 minute songs a "starter band"

    What I mean by "a started band" is that people new to metal can come across nightwish easier than Agathodaimon for example, they're more popular. They "discover" the genre of symphonic metal through them and After learning this sound they try to fid more bands like this. That's what i mean a starter band.

    Actually the first time I listened to them I didn't like their sound. Well I did a little, the only song I really liked was Amaranth.

    I only like old Nightwish. I like all the albums they did with Tarja. My favorite album is Oceanborn. Then they went went all symphonic pop metal when Anette took over. Sadly I never got to see them live back when Tarja was their vocalist. I saw them with Anette and I hated the show. The vocals were barely audible. They sound much better now with Floor Jansen singing.

    I was excited when floor Jansen took over. She's brilliant. Anette quit on them in the middle of the tour. Tarja was amazing, I don't like her solo stuff but I saw her at Prog Power. Her husband is apparently a giant douche.

    I'm forever sobbing I never saw them live with Tarja. I did with Annette, not my style. Floor is okay!
    Favorite album is Once! I can't wait for the new album to come out tho.

    One of my best friends loves Nightwish and has seen them live more than a few times.  I do like their famous live cover of Phantom of the Opera a lot.
