Thread: Nightwish

  1. #1

    Nightwish

    I saw that there's a Metallica thread so I decided to make a thread for one of my favorite bands. The first song on their first album is about LOTR so I'm guessing some Nightwish fans love Tolkien as well. I often use Nightwish references when naming my mounts, pets, and weapons in this game. And Alphemel is the Sindarin translation of "Swanheart", a lovely song from the album Oceanborn.

    Here's a really cool fan-made music video for the song Elvenpath, with clips from the LOTR and Hobbit films.

    The song came out in 1997. Like I said before, it's the opening song on Nightwish's debut album. The spoken bit that says "long ago, in the early years of the second age, the great elven smiths forged the rings of power" is audio from the 1978 cartoon I think. Here are the full lyrics:

    "Hearing music from the deepest forest
    Songs as a seduction of sirens
    The elf-folk is calling me

    Tapio, Bear-king, Ruler of the forest
    Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad
    Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path

    The way to the lands
    Where as a hero I stand
    The path where Beauty met the Beast
    Elvenpath
    It’s the honesty of these worlds
    Ruled by magic and mighty swords
    That makes my soul long for the past
    Elvenpath

    The moonwitch took me to a ride on a broomstick
    Introduced me to her old friend home gnome
    Told me to keep the sauna warm for him

    At the grove I met the rest - the folk of my fantasies
    Bilbo, Sparhawk, goblins and pixies
    Snowman, Willow, trolls and the seven dwarves
    The path goes forever on

    The way to the lands
    Where as a hero I stand
    The path where Beauty met the Beast
    Elvenpath
    It’s the honesty of these worlds
    Ruled by magic and mighty swords
    That makes my soul long for the past
    Elvenpath

    As I return to my room
    And as sleep takes me by my hand
    Madrigals from the woods
    Carry me to neverland
    In this spellbound night
    The world’s an elvish sight
    In this spellbound night
    The world’s an elvish sight"

    This song is very whimsical, however Tuomas has matured a lot as a songwriter through the years.

    I stopped liking Nightwish after Tarja left.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
    Continuing the never ending battle to keep Lobelia Sackville-Baggins in check

    Do you listen to Tarja's solo albums then? I love those as well. My Winter Storm is great.
