Everyone take a moment of silence to remember Britain's Owen Brown, who passed away at the ripe old age of 87. He was a thousand times more metal than you. Brown passed away in his home in Herefordshire on Saturday, August 24, though he'll still be kickin' it in the afterlife come his final funeral …

Metal Blast recently conducted an interview with former AFTER FOREVER frontwoman and current NIGHTWISH touring singer Floor Jansen about her REVAMP project as well as her time with NIGHTWISH. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Metal Blast: Is singing for NIGHTWISH any different than what you used to do with your other bands or it was more like a familiar ground?

Floor: It was more of the familiar. Even though I was asked and directed a little bit, I do have the freedom to give my own ideas. When you start doing it, you have to give a part of yourself, so I couldn’t done it differently. I can’t just imitate the previous singers. It was wonderful to see that the songs really grew on me. I don’t feel like I’m singing someone else’s music anymore. It really feels natural for me.

Metal Blast: By the way, how was the show and filming you did with NIGHTWISH at Germany’s Wacken Open Air festival at the beginning of the month?

Floor: Oh that was so amazing! That was the biggest show for all of us, and with the DVD filming, it was also very exciting. It was such a perfect night. The weather was crazy, but the band was great… We’ve been playing well before, and I don’t want to sound arrogant or something like that, but, I mean, there are times like this when you just know that the band has a good vibe, you know that your sound is locked and you all have this feeling of yes… So that was all there. Add to that the massive sound of a 70,000 audience and it makes you… Wooh, it took me days to come down to earth after that show. [laughs]

Metal Blast: I understand it’s too early to reflect on your time with NIGHTWISH, but how was the ride and experience so far?

Floor: It has been magical and really amazing. I mean, we know each other for ten years, but you never figure when you start working more intensively if it would work or not… Especially since I stepped in a very weird moment, no one knew how things would be, but to see that there’s such a personal and musical connection, that everything is smooth without us trying to force it, it’s just… No one had the time to make any expectations, it just started abruptly and roughly and boom there we are! We were all in the same situation, we had to make it work — and we did! I don’t know if it’s because we started like that or if god knows why, but it has been working really well ever since. I don’t know how the future looks like — none of us do — but I can tell you that whatever happens I’ll be super proud and happy and still very privileged that I’ve been able to work with such wonderful and intelligent people.
