Which genre is Nightwish? Aren't they power metal. Yes I know that they have(had) female half-opera singer. But they can't be gothic just cause of that. What is gothic anyway? Tristania for example. But I don't know if that genre even exists. Gothic should be just some feeling that band has.

Many people think that Children of Bodom are death metal. But they are not. They play some speed/power metal. They just have those death vocals. It's just vocal, not music.

The main thing is... can a band be called by this or that genre? Isn't every band a genre by itelf? Maybe Nightwish has a part of gothic, a part of Symphonic, a part of Opera Metal, and even more. About Children of Bodom I can't speak as I don't hear them... Of course that a lot of bands can be included in a genre or some genres, but as every band is different, it's hard to say the genre with no doubt.

For instance... which genre is Therion? I think that... "Therion Metal"  :P

They have nothing with black metal.

I think that people missunderstand symphonic. I think that symphonic refers to insfruments that for example Therion use and not vocals.

But usualy people put bands with keybords into Black-group, or sometimes industrial-group...

So, that is not correct. You could put Nightwish into black metal then.

This genre thing is all crazy!

It seems that nowadays everyone makes music and because of the use of combining different elements it falls into a genre that if it does not exist they make it exist! I have heard of this band call themselves Violet Goth Metal...wtf? now everyone can invente a genre! (Once I also heard that Therion was some sort of doom metal)  :blink:

I think every band falls upon the genres that once were  the ones that only existed some time ago: for example plain heavy, power, death, black, etc. That is were they all come from and I rather not complicate myself. So I prefer to label bands under those even though some band do have added some other flavor to their music.

The music is fine :smilies_musik04:
I don't know how to catalouge it, I would say it's a mix of Symph. and Black Metal.
Anyways, what I mostly care in Nightwish is not the music, but the vocalist Tarja Turunen :evil:

I'm not sure which(witch) category of metall Nightwish fall in all that i can say is that they actually have a unique sound and thus they contribute to the pantheon of metall  :thumbup:(unlike other so called metall bands) :evil2: oh and tequilla Tarja has much MORE than only a nice voice

Haha this is funny  :biggrin:

Now I want to know where goes Therion with their last album ?

is it  heavy-power-prog-symphonic-opera-sometimes-hard-rock-metal ?

or maybe....Iron like what they were talking about in the DVD ? or maybe a new one.... Aluminium ?

 Nightwish IMO is just metal, plain and really mainstream , bottom line, not worthy to classyfy, worthy to listen to sometimes tho
