Product Description

Product Description

2007 digitally remastered UK reissue of the third full length album with three bonus tracks from Finland's popular gothic metal band featuring Tuomas Holopainen of Nattvindens Grat and vocalist Tarja. This album peaked at #1 on the Finnish charts in May 2000 when first released in Europe. Tarja vocal style operatic and powerful with the deft ability to deliver heavy rockers and dreamy ballads. This edition includes three bonus tracks that didn't appear on the original issue: 'Sleepwalker' (a bonus track from a previous reissue), 'Wanderlust' and 'Deep Silent Complete'. The package includes an extensive booklet with new sleevenotes, photos and details about the band. Spinefarm

Finland's Nightwish steps to the head of the atmospheric-metal class with their third album. The regal quintet blends the brooding qualities of goth and propulsion metal with the gorgeous operatic singing of Tarja Turunen. Thanks to musical prowess and the skilled hand of composer-keyboardist Tuomas Holpainen, what could be a ponderous and pretentious affair is a vibrant metal romp. Nightwish walks that fine line between heavy-rock bravado and classical pageantry without tipping too much in either direction; the balance of aggressive guitars and flowing keyboards is just right, and the multitracked female vocals and guitar harmonies are glorious. While some may find the lyrics a bit flowery, Wishmaster bumps atmospheric metal up a notch in the right direction. --Bryan Reesman

I recently became hooked on Nightwish... a mere 3 months ago when I picked up the latest offering, "Once." That album was SO damn good that it prompted me to go back and start buying the rest of the catalogue. My third purchase in the line is "Wishmaster", and it's more of the same great stuff! Having bought "Oceanborn", and liking it, I nevertheless felt that it sounded a bit too much like traditional Symphony X, just with a female singer. "Wishmaster" seems to strike a perfect middle ground between that overly neo-classical style, and the hard metal edge of "Once." This is one of Nightwish's best offerings, so DO NOT let the cover art fool you!
All of the musicians are brilliant with their respective duties, and you'll find that this album is much more rhythm-guitar driven, which traditional metal-heads will find irresistable (the excellent double-kick drumming and odd-time in 'The Kinslayer', and the fist-in-the-air crunching guitar in the latter half of 'Wanderlust' are perfect examples). This isn't thrash or speed metal, and isn't anywhere near as brutally heavy as my other newfound favorite band, Children of Bodom, but the level of complexity in the songwriting, and the mixture of beautiful melody vs. hard-rocking metal is MORE than a reason to give this album a chance! My best advice is to listen to this album four, maybe five times before you pass judgment. Like most albums in this genre of music, there is a LOT being thrown at you in one sitting, and the more you listen to them, the more you love them. This is an excellent starter album for those curious about Nightwish. By the time you're done listening to it, don't be surprised if you can't get the catchy intro to the album's title track out of your head!

In me the Wishmaster!

Ah, Sergio...please do not think you are the most "varied" listener there is and pretend to be so "cultured" in your review. Sergio, for those who don't know, is the reviewer whose review you will find somewhere around mine. Sergio, check out my reviews - I listen to every (and I mean EVERY) conceivable variety of Rock and Metal, and also Jazz, Funk, African, Blues, Classical, Reggae, Afro-Cuban music,'s that for variety? And I happen to think that Nightwish is one of the best bands EVER. And, believe me, I have heard LOTS. I am also a musician, and I have been playing for 12 years,and I really find nothing to fault here - Nightwish have achieved the perfect balance of melodious grace and hard-hitting power. This is definitely their best album. With them, I have not suffered the "first-listen" syndrome. This is a curious condition which causes you to almost always like the most the first album that you listen to of any given band. The first one I owned was "Oceanborn", which is their previous album. But, I must say that "Wishmaster" is slightly superior to that other brilliant masterpiece. So they might have a melody here and there that you might call "accesible" (such as the chorus on "Bare Grace Misery"), but so what? Of course, if you want utter inaccesibility and harshness, get a dose of Cannibal Corpse (one of my faves), or in Jazz, the deliciously brutal sax player Albert Ayler, but in a supremely melodious and beautiful music such as this, a nit-picker like you might find a "too pretty" melody for his/her taste, and denounce it as "accesible." God forbid! Sorry, man. I just love Nightwish too much, and I get a bit violent. I mean, if you don't like it, fine, just say it isn't your cup of tea.Read more ›

Wishmaster (2001). Nightwish's third studio album.
Over the last year or so, I've come across and listened to many power metal bands which are popular overseas. Some like to show off virtuoso musicianship by packing in the guitar/keyboard solos and pounding double-kick bass drums. Others are just 3rd-rate clones of better bands. After a while though, I begun to realize that while it's good to hear bands go for the old-school heavy metal sound, a lot of power metal bands lack in the songwriting department and offer nothing unique to add to the old-school sound. In other words, a lot of it doesn't really stand out and there is little variety between certain bands. Helloween, Gamma Ray, and Stratovarius are just a couple of examples.
The good news is that there are many diamonds in the rough, some incredibly talented bands that stand out leagues above the others. Symphony X, Kamelot, Sonata Artica, Blind Guardian, and Iced Earth are among the elite bands of the genre. But we're here to talk about another exceptional power metal act: Nightwish. Comprised of female vocalist Tarja Turunen, keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, drummer Jukka Nevalainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and bassist Sami Vanska, Nightwish opts to create a very melodic, epic, and romantic atmosphere with their music. Usually 'beautiful' is not the word that comes to mind when one thinks of heavy metal music, but with Tarja's soaring operatic vocals and Tuomas's grand orchestral keyboard textures accompanying the rest of the band, Nighwish proves to be VERY convincing in that regard. I'm not a fan of opera, but Tarja sings in a very tasteful opera style, and in time she can grow on all people who give her a chance.
