Man, it's so hard when we are talking about my favorite power metal band, Nightwish. They are definitely unique with their gothic influenced orchestrated power metal and because they have the world's most talented female singer Tarja Turunen on their side. The album Wishmaster is the follow-up to Oceanborn, which was released 2 years ago. Over these 2 years, Nightwish has definitely evolved as a band and because of it this album is much more mature than any other album this far. But what is Nightwish all about?

I think that Wishmaster may be my favourite album. It really is an awesome album with "Fantasmic" "The kinslayer" "Crownless" "She is my sin" "Wishmaster" and "Wanderlust". And the other songs don't stay behind

Such a great album. From beginning to end. Every now and then I go on my Nightwish binge, and this is album is so cohesively arranged, both in its lyrical and musical content, that I have to listen to its entirety. Bad Ass.

I think I can hear Holopainen doing backing vocals in the courus of FantasMic. There's definatly a male voice behind Turunen's, and I'm sure it really sounds like Holopainen's.

Great album and, I think, the darkest one in Nightwish discography (including Tuomas' own requiem - Dead Boy's Poem).
