IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOME WITTY AND UNNECESSARY BLOG ENTRY A LA NIGHTBOX STYLE, THEN YOU HAVE COME TO THE WRONG PLACE
This time I need to be serious.
I'm writing this to try to find some kind of closure to this whole drama that's been going on for the last few weeks. I've been struggling to find words that describes my feelings circling around this. So I kind of need to start at the beginning of my Nightwish journey.
It was a warm day in May... nah too boring for you guys :D
2007 the year was for sure. Maybe in May, I'm not sure. After listening to bands like Evanescence and Within Temptation I continued to search the Female Fronted Metal tag. Why Evanescence was tagged like that I have no idea.
Anyway, I found a band called Nightwish
. Searched for the video to Wish I Had An Angel and after that moment my life changed.
I bought all the albums, learned all the lyrics by heart and tried to live with the knowledge that Tarja had been fired.
I was heartbroken to say the least.
I, like all the other NW luvers, waited and waited for any news regarding the new singer.
And then, when I was derping around on the internet, it was right there. The new video. I hesitated at first, since I thought I was going to be disappointed. Then I finally brought up the courage and clicked the link.
*sigh* me and all the other Nettie fans against all the Tarjaholics, what a mess!
I could finally breath again at the beginning of 2009, it was then my addiction got out of hand *cough*
I followed Anette's blog every day and got so excited every time she made a post *__* I even managed to win a bracelet, a ring, an autographed card signed by all the NW members and a personal message from Anette in one of her raffles!
Best x-mas gift evar^^
The second album came out. Dark Passion Play was really, really good. But Imaginaerum... oh wow! It took Anette's voice to a whole new level.
And now, well...
So why did she leave? I can't really believe that she was fired, just that it is what they said: a mutual agreement
Anette was sick, wanted to be with her children, maybe she even felt a bit excluded from the guys and maybe she couldn't take the pressure anymore from the notorious Tarjaholics. So now you a-holes, you got what you wanted.
I feel that the Anetteholics soon will rise!
A lot of people got a lot of different theories about why she left. And I'm still not sure why. From my point of view I just believe that she was just tired of it all.
Oh Tuomas I tought you learned from the last time!
Oh well it's getting late AND NO, I WILL NOT WATCH A VIDEO WITH FLOOR SINGING NW SONGS! GAWD!
Anette started updating her blog again, I'm just floating right now *squeal*
Sorry for the fangirling in this post. No wait I don't care.
She's back, SHE'S BACK wiiiiieee :P
