BREAKING NEWS: Nightwish announces new vocalist

Post by NordicStorm » Sat Apr 01, 2006 10:03 pm

Found this on Blabbermouth:
Helsinki (AP) - Fans of Finnish metal band Nightwish can breathe a sigh of relief. After many months of turmoil, the search for a new singer is over.
"After the break-up with [singer] Tarja [Turunen], we decided Nightwish needed a new direction," says band leader and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen. "It became clear to us from the very start that the singer had to be a diva. And when I say diva, I mean a real whiny bitch. Michael Kiske was the obvious choice."

For Kiske, who currently lives on a park bench somewhere in downtown Hamburg, it was an easy decision to accept the job offer.
"I fucking hate metal. It fucking sucks. My God, I will never work on another metal album," says Kiske. "Avantasia? What does that even mean?"
Kiske continues, "Nightwish? Yeah, I needed the money."

Reactions to replacing Turunen, a classically trained female opera singer, with the apparently male Kiske, were mixed, but sales on Nightwish bath robes, Nightwish mugs, Nightwish flags, Nightwish condoms, Nightwish suppositories and Nightwish whatnots remained as brisk as always.

"Pink Bubbles Go Ape? What the fuck was I thinking?", concludes Kiske.

But still, having Kiske as their singer would have rocked.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't Blabbermouth be sued because of that? Just wondering, because it's so easy to sue people nowadays, at least in the USA. I don't think even Nightwish likes that kind of publicity.

I actually thought that those news have never really been on Blabbermouth and NordicStorm just came up with that on his own. If that shouldn't be correct, maybe Blabbermouth really got problems, and as you can see, you can't find these news on Blabbermouth now anymore..

Alot of what happens on Blabbermouth is just rumors,and gossip. And some of the people who post there can be quite malicious. :roll:

Hmm, that's not my opinion as all the new Guns'n'Roses and Iron Maiden news were said previously on there before being confirmed on the official websites...

But yes, a lot of gossip. I remember one particularly funny incident between Nile and Monolith Deathcult that was actually nothing, blabbermouth just hyped it.

I do not regard it a reliable source of metal news.

I thought the same too. Let's sue Nordic! :D (South Park again :roll: :D )

BTW, Nightwish already has a male singer, so why another one? :)

Maybe because the frontwoman was considered a bit like the spirit of Nightwish (without forgetting the others though) not only an image but also a voice..:wink:

Exactly! Tarja was like Tuomas' mascot, as Dickinson is Harris' one. Nobody could imagine Maiden without the Air Raid Siren...nor NW without Tarja. But, that happened and that's a sort of great occasion for people to try their chance with Tuomas & Co. 8)

I wouldn't go so far as to call Bruce Steve Harris' 'mascot'. He's written a lot of songs for Maiden, and many many lyrics. Poor analogy.

Well, that wasn't said in a bad way. I wanted to say that Dickinson is like the oil which makes the Maiden machine to work...Do you see what I'm trying to say?
