Have you guys heard Nightwish "Amaranth"? It was released August 24th though.. and it has different versions that was released on the 31st of August. For the benefit of those who doesn't know yet, "Amaranth" is the band's first single from the album "Dark Passion Play". The single was released ahead of the album. And they have a new singer here.. Anette Olzon (formerly of the group Alyson Avenue) who replaces Tarja Turunen.

The album "Dark Passion Play" will be released officially by the end of September via Nuclear Blast Records.

So you guys must listen to the single first and tell me what you think about it. Because when I first heard "Eva".. i was kinda worried hehe. Because Anette sounds like more of regular pop singer. God, I still love Tarja! But don't get me wrong here.. I'm not saying I don't like Annette, her voice is ok. Anyway, it's not about's not about the vocalist, it's about music. As long as they make Nightwish music together.. then I will forever like Nightwish.. Although it was still amazing with Tarja.. So far I'm not disappointed with Annette.. there might be a little difference with the vocals.. but it's not that bad. I just hope they don't go pop. Hehehe.

See Amaranth video.

  1. I definitely prefer Tarja's voice and style. Annette will never replace Tarja in my heart, but I like Amaranth and Eva well enough.
