Seeing is believing (Ghost Love Score - Nightwish)

February 2, 2014

I'm a strong believer that seeing and hearing is believing. Nightwish's "Ghost Love Score" is a signature piece that most fans point to as one of the best known archetypes of the epic, heroic, bombastic, and cinematic aspects of the Symphonic Metal genre. Listen and decide for yourself.

I know a lot of Nightwish fans can get catty about the different frontwomen.  I encourage anyone new to Nightwish not to prejudge Tarja, Anette, or Floor.  In my view, each is unique and brings to the table different talents, abilities, and voice that have positively shaped the sound of Nightwish.

Nightwish - Ghost Love Score - Floor Jansen (Official Live Video) at Wacken Open Air 2013. This is IMO one of the most iconic performances of this song.
