I never went to shows at all until last year mainly because, while I liked music, I never felt the need to see artists live plus got the impression that the recorded version was better. That and I didn't have anyone to go with.I usually never go see live bands by myself, but after missing Opeth and Gojira last year because all my friends decided to pass, I promised myself I would now go by myself if it came down to that. I'm glad I did.
They've always had pre-recorded tracks for anything that's not a guitar, bass, some random keys or drums and now bagpipes with the addition of Troy.I've seen Nightwish live 3 times.
Floor is a great singer and it's well worth going just to see her.
The rest of the band are great musicians, but they tend to get a bit stale.
IMO they have started to rely too much on pre-recorded backing tracks.
You would be quite disappointed how much backing tracks are used today with every band that tours. I hate trying to mix it in on the small gigs that I do to make the balance of actual instrumentalist and the recorded instrument of theirs.IMO they have started to rely too much on pre-recorded backing tracks.
They've done more consistently radio friendly metal before (without such hip hop elements). But I do like their use of three vocalists. Here's one that's still in regular radio rotation.Just came across Amaranthe via my Youtube recommended videos..... Probably because Minniva just dropped a cover on Friday.
Haven't listened to anything else yet, but I'm not so sure about this. Its like metal meets hip hop (at least thats what the vocals in this song remind me of) and I don't know how I feel about that.
