Swan

It was about a month ago, I just had a walk at the park in Giessen, and I saw this guy (or may be this lady?) enjoying the day. The moment (s)he saw me, came closer and posed for some pictures. Here there are some of them:

Storytime

4 years ago there was “Dark Passion Play”. A new era has begun. Now, after quite a lot of waiting here it is, the new single, the new video, the hint for “Imaginaerium”!

It is very hard to say an opinion in one direction. “Storytime” is something which I expected, and still new and different. When you hear it for first time you KNOW that this is Nightwish. And it cannot be different. Every single detail is Nightwish. Somehow it reminds me of “Everdream”, although, it is totally different. Also there is the total atmosphere of “Dark Passion Play’. After I read a lot of interviews, articles and watched trailers on what it is coming I expected something huge. Somehow “Storytime” is not exactly what I expected. But same time it is exactly Nightwish. Exactly what I like about them, exactly what I expected in other sense. If I have to give a one direction opinion, I would say it is good. Anette fits more to the music, feels like one organism, not Nightwish and (or with) Anette.

I like it! And the costumes are great. I can’t wait now for the whole album, and of course the movie. There is so much more to come, I hope that this is really only a drop into an ocean, which is about to pour into us and take us to the “Imaginaerium” world. Something that no one had ever felt before, something that shows a brand new world. The world of our imagination.

Storytime

It was the night before,
When all through the world,
No words, no dreams
Then one day,
A writer by a fire
Imagined all of Gaia
Took a journey into a childless heart…

A painter on the shore
Imagined all the world
Within the snowflake on his palm
A dream of poetry,
I’ll tell is over
Cutting in,
Falling back in to the stars…

I am the voice of never, never land,
The innocence of dreams from every man,
I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the journey,
I am the destination,
I am the whole mad tale
That grieves you
Away to taste the night,
Free and loose we fly!
Follow the madness,
How do you know what’s real?

Imaginarium, a dream emporium!
Caress the tales
And they will read you real
A storyteller’s game,
Inside he flicks the gate
The calling heart
Is a limitless chest of tales…

I am the voice of never, never land,
The innocence of dreams from every man,
I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the voice of never, never land,
The innocence of dreams from every man,
Searching heavens for another earth…
