Nightwish's Eva & new singer....

Post by nepi » Wed May 23, 2007 6:23 pm

Nightwish will inform 6 days earlier who the new female singer is. There was a leak in the net so they have to bring the news out earlier as planned.

Also is a small part of EVA online:

Question: Who is she?
IMO she sounds similar to Amy from Evanescence

Well, to my opinion, she has a nice voice (better than mine anyway), but does not have the "special little thing" that the former signer had. She sounds American to me. We shall see.

For having a voice like that (nowhere near bad, but it's not anything special as Martine said) she must look way too beautiful. :D

Yea i'm with martine, she sounds american, which in my opinion, is very bad. Within Temptations new single went the same way. Love them too but it was just eurgh! :yuk:

She's beautiful. And has a wonderful voice. But, I don't know. ??? That would be good, too, IMO!

I am not saying that is good or not... but I have listened to the whole song. And the voice is so similar!

She didn't sound American to me ... So I agree with this:

It is either her or some unknown female singer ...

There have been lots of rumours saying that the new singer is Liv Kristine. Since I don't listen to any of the bands where she sings, I wouldn't know, but that's the strongest rumour so far.

Definitely not Jenn. Got an e-mail from her confirming this a few weeks ago. I believe that
the Saana thing is probably her current priority, and suspect that project will probably have at least some NW type of influence.

Michelle was asked by Tolkki to record a demo of some NW cover just prior to the auditions in Atlanta last year.

Wish I had time to do some real recording with my friends, since I have some very polished demos with very elaborate arrangements. Unfortunately, current workloads prohibits this though. :(

But for now, I am still stuck in the database repair dungeon. :x

Same opinion here. Have heard lots of about that after the ex Tristania singer rumour. But I am in the same situation that doesn´t recognize Liv´s voice as I don´t listen the bands she has been involved.

I've seen Liv Kristine live at the Kamelot gig and her voice sounded very different. After reading all those posts above I am totally wrong....

I hope she ain't Liv, and she doesn't sound like her. And I don't like her anyway. :P

Seriously, it's just a new singer, I don't know why there is so much secrecy.

Just finish the album so I can go and get it and see if it good or bad, regardless of the singer!

'Cuz we all know that none will be better than Tarja dammit.

By the way, 'tis is the new cover art for "Eva"

Have any of you heard Liv Kristine singing before? The singer on this Eva track is definately not the wonderful Liv Kristine!

Can't believe you used the word "wonderful" before THAT name.
But you're right, they do not sound alike.

And hey, different tastes. ;)

Come on guys, this isn't Liv Kristine. Even me, who has just listened to a few songs of her projects, recognizes that it's certainly not her, she a very remarkable voice.
Shame on Sony, btw, who leaked the song..

alternate version of the cover, btw:
