FaceCulture recently conducted an interview with Dutch singer Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH, REVAMP, ex-AFTER FOREVER). You can now watch the chat in three parts below. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On what her role in NIGHTWISH is going to be now that she has been upgraded from a touring singer to a full-time/permanent member:

Floor: “I guess that’s something that needs to be seen, how I can grow into my role within the band, because I have been a guest musician for the whole ‘Imaginaerum’ tour. So, of course, I knew I was gonna stay, but the whole concept of all that was already there. So for the upcoming album, I don’t know how that will grow. I, of course, have my experience, and so do the guys, and I can’t imagine myself, with my personality, sitting back and saying, ‘Yeah, do whatever and I’ll follow.’ But on the other hand, they know exactly what they’re doing — they’ve proven to be able to write great songs and to put out something that totally… where all the pictures match and where the whole concept is one. And I guess it’s a process to see how I can add with my creativity and how my input is gonna be there. I can imagine, I have my feelings and ideas about stage outfits, but also with the songwriting, Tuomas [Holopainen, NIGHTWISH keyboardist] is definitely the master of the writing process, he’s the guy in charge, but Marco [Hietala, NIGHTWISH bassist/vocalist] also writes and the whole band comes together and makes the puzzle work. So somewhere in that puzzle I’ll get my share.”

On whether she will be moving to Finland from The Netherlands in order to be closer to NIGHTWISH‘s home base:

Floor: “Out of practical reasons, I don’t have to move to Finland. I mean, it’s quite nearby, and you’re there always for certain periods of time, for either a show or now for the recording period and there are facilities there where I can stay. But I’m studying Finnish, and it’s one of the five most difficult languages in the world. And the more I learn, the more I realize that’s definitely true. [Laughs] So I might move to Finland, at least for a while, to learn the language a bit better, ’cause you don’t learn any language better than in the country itself.”

On why she is studying Finnish:

Floor: “Well, imagine being in a group of 25 people. There are 20 Finnish people, there’s one German, there’s one Dutchie, and there’s one… Or 20 people, let’s say… And there are only two or three people who do not speak Finnish… whether it’s a group of German people, Dutch people — wherever you’re from. You always speak the language you hear most. So if there are 20 people, and 18 of them are Finnish, most people will speak Finnish amongst each other. Regardless of how well the NIGHTWISH guys and everyone involved speaks English, and they’re very willing to translate, they still need to translate. And I feel if I wanna be part of the whole circus even more, be more involved, understand everyone better, even now that I’m studying, understanding the culture a bit better, in the long run, it’s gonna make me feel like I fit in a little bit better. Even though they have welcomed me with open arms and I already feel at home — I call them my brothers and my family — I think being able to speak the language makes the unity even bigger.”

Ex-PAPA ROACH drummer Dave Buckner rejoined his former bandmates on stage on September 14 at the the Aftershock festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California to perform the song “Last Resort”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.

PAPA ROACH was sued in 2008 by Buckner, who claimed that he had not been receiving his fair share of the group’s earnings and that he had not received a complete accounting from the group or its management. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix told The Pulse of Radio in early 2009 that the suit was being settled, and that his feelings about Buckner had not been affected by it. “Legal is legal, you know, but it’s like the essence of the lawsuit is to dissolve his business relationship with us, which is completely understandable,” he said. “But as far as like personal goes, I, you know, we wish no ill will on him.”

PAPA ROACH permanently split with Buckner at the beginning of 2008, following a year-long period in which he went to rehab twice. He was replaced by ex-UNWRITTEN LAW drummer Tony Palermo.

Fit For An Autopsy released a new song called "Thank You, Budd Dwyer," and it sounds exactly like you wouldn't expect a song thanking someone to sound like. I made my feelings about the band pretty clear on their first single off Hellbound, and it holds pretty true to this one as well; heavy but pretty …

Portugal’s Thee Orakle has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it a day: “We want to inform our friends, fans, and followers that the band Thee Orakle officially came to an end. “The decision happened this week, but it was only the conclusion of an ending that had already been planned in last September. For so long on a standby mode, there were many different feelings from artistic incompatibilities and even personals between its members, negativity involved or even bad luck and obstacles that seemed to follow any of our steps.

Randy was found not guilty in his manslaughter trial earlier this year

The Czech Republic High Court have upheld the verdict that found Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Not Guilty of manslaughter, meaning that the case has finally come to a close.

The verdict was passed on March 5 after Randy was charged following the death of a fan in Prague after a Lamb of God gig in 2010.

Randy posted an extremely poignant blog concerning his feelings on the court case a few weeks back, with LOG set to return to the UK for the first time since his arrest when they headline the Saturday night of Bloodstock in August.
