Taken from the tribute to brunettes thread. Sounds like Dutch would be up my alley, but I have not listened to Dutch, Epica, Sirenia, or After Forever. Currently listening to Amon Amarth (great band), Callenish Circle (too bad they broke up) and Sienbenburgen (their comeback album isn't the greatest). Tristania is a great band and I'm interested to see what they can do with their new singer. Any thoughts you can provide would be much appreciated, Don. Don't post too much here during the day, so might not get back to this until tonight. Originally Posted by Don Giro: "VERY similar to Nightwish, but I like WT better.

The US release only has half the concert on the CD, but the DVD half has the whole show, and, OH, what a show it is...I can't WAIT for the import Blu-Ray. Check out that link in my last post, it's one of my all-time favorite songs (I have some lyrics in my sig). Put it this way, I listened to Nightwish's "End of an Era" CDs CONSTANTLY over the last six months. Now I listen to "Black Symphony" over and over... Maybe we should move this to the music thread, because something tells me that you don't know about Epica, Sirenia, and After Forever, either."
