I’ve been listening to Nightwish’s album Once. It’s alot heavier and darker than Century Child. Century Child is more dreamy/longing. It doesn’t have as much of the strong guitar riffs. I really am liking their style more and more though. If I were to make a band, it would likely end up sounding similar. Blind Guardian was my original inspiration, but I find that the music I write tends to sound more Nightwish-esque.
And, I found a wonderful picture of Tuomas Holopainen... The lighting... I just have to draw him. He can be an elf. Maglor maybe. And did you know he was born on Christmas? Hehe.
Oh how I wish For soothing rain All I wish is to dream again My loving heart Lost in the dark For hope I’d give my everything
