All rhythm- and lead guitars are now recorded! Missing just a couple of solos, to be recorded after the vocals (hard to shred with that mutant right hand, anyway…see first picture). Truly fantastic job, Emppu! On to keyboards and vocals next.

“I’d like to be able to explain myself one day how tremendously much the first 13 years of my life meant to me. When I close my eyes, I can still think about some of those childhood Christmases, my childhood home, and all the little details about different occasions. I still get an incredible kick out of that. Cold shivers. That’s what my paradise looks like. When I die, I want to go there, return to those times. I have no words - and apparently not even music - to describe how much my childhood meant to me and how happy it was.”
1 Favorite Cover Song ↪ 01/01: High Hopes[Pink Floyd Live Cover - End of an Era DVD]
There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps, Running before time took our dreams away. Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground, To a life consumed by slow decay.
This is, in my opinion, not only one of the best covers they’ve done, but one of the most underrated Nightwish performances, period. I chose this one for that particular reason. Although I love their covers of songs like Phantom of the Opera, that would be way too obvious of a choice.
