NIGHTWISH - OCEANBORN
reviewed by Erlend
This awesome band from Finland plays some kind of symphonic power/progressive metal, but unlike most other power metal bands, they use female vocals.. and damn, what a voice! She sings like opera all the way. Anyway, the music is awesome! Really majestic, powerful and melodic, with lots of synth and piano making it sound very orchestral.
Favourite tracks are the opening track "Stargazer", "Gethsemane", "Sacrament of Wilderness" and the instrumental "Moondance". One some tracks , especially "Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean" we can hear a male voice too... not grunting, but very low.
This cd is really awesome!! If you don't mind having female vocals, you should absolutely get it!
