Nightwish, Once

LP, Nocturne

C'est Loud! C'est Metallique! French too ... I think. I'm not sure whether Nightwish preceeded The Darkness or not. There's a high-pitched singer and acres of rolling thunder guitar and the name. Anyway, this is more Metal than The Darkness and is of the smoothly produced arena variety, and night-oriented names and acres of guitar are hardly uncommon in these circles. Some people will scorn this sort of thing but some people who don't wear black t-shirts to match lank, long black hair will think it's kinda fun. (thunderfinger)
