Delain: Live at Paradiso

Last year I contributed to a Pledge Music campaign by the Dutch band Delain to help them release a 10th anniversary concert recording staged and filmed in December 2016. The gig happened and it was very exciting to get news snippets. This month I’m super-excited because the Blu-Ray/DVD package is finally being distributed. I haven’t yet received mine in the UK but I can see from the Pledge Music website that some lucky fans have started receiving their copies.

Upcoming: Kroh

I have read about this band in Metal Hammer and have watched a few videos on YouTube. I am excited about the band, they have a unique sound largely due to their Polish vocalist Oliwia Sobieszek (I have no idea how she pronounces her surname but I assume Oli-via is how you say her forename). The band are from Birmingham and have a doom laden sound with ethereal vocals. Their album Altars is out. They are playing the UK’s Bloodstock festival in August. I look forwards to hearing and reading more about this band.

Vehicle of Spirit: Nightwish

I finally pre-ordered my Blu-Ray copy of the Nightwish live concert film for the Endless Forms Most Beautiful tour. I am looking forward to the release on 16th December. It will tie in well with my annual leave this Christmas. I have bought a few CDs recently and a music DVD I should have posted about. I will endeavour to write something soon but life has been very busy lately!

Nightwish news

Well yesterday was the day the wonderful news broke about Floor Jansen having a baby. It is really great news for her. She has my best wishes and I’m sure many many fans of her music will wish her and the baby the same blessings.

The other piece of good news, from a Nightwish fan’s perspective is that in November the band are releasing a live DVD – yay! I can’t wait. The DVD will feature the London Wembley convert and the show at Ratina Stadion in Findland. Two very special shows I’m sure you will all agree.

The DVD will be called Vehicle of Spirit and I will be getting my pre-order in for that very soon. It will also include some extras but the exact set lists and details have not yet been released. It’s going to be a classic though, I can tell already!
