Tarja and Sharon: New BBFs

Symphonic metal fans around the world are set to lose their shit as it’s been revealed that the new Within Temptation single will feature none other than former Nightwish singer, Tarja Turunen!

Paradise (What About Us?) will land later this month and will be the first new Within Temptation track to be released from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled new album, due out early next year.

“When we had written the first version of Paradise and listened back to the demo we’d recorded and the epic power of the song, we thought of Tarja instantly,” says WT’s Sharon Den Adel. “How well this track would fit her classical voice and how extra special it would be if we sang it together. The more we thought about this wild idea, the more excited we got about it!

“Of course I didn’t know what to expect from Tarja, as we’d never actually met in person ’till June this year. Our first encounter was via a Skype call we’d set-up to discuss the collaboration and we immediately clicked, not only creatively but personally. After we’d spoken, it felt completely natural that we would do this together!”

Within Temptation: Back in the studio, soon back on the road

“It was very nice to finally meet Sharon and the Within Temptation guys,” adds Tarja. “I truly appreciate the invitation and the opportunity to work with them on their song ‘Paradise’. So wonderful that they thought of me! I hope our fans will like this ‘girl power’ duet!”

Within Temptation will return to the UK in early 2014 for a string of dates that includes a stop at Wembley Arena! You can catch Sharon and the boys at the following venues:

JANUARY 2014
FRIDAY            24                    O2 ACADEMY BIRMINGHAM
SATURDAY     25                    WEMBLEY ARENA
MONDAY         27                    O2 APOLLO MANCHESTER

Oblivion vocalist Nick Vasallo's solo project is a thrash metal concerto. He just released a crushing 17 minute video of the track "Black Swan Events." I've never heard symphonic metal this heavy. Oblivion's Victor Dods and Luis Martinez perform guitar and drums respectively on the track.

Floor at work

Current Nightwish singer Floor Jansen – who has been fronting the Finnish symphonic metal heavyweights since the shocking departure of Anette Olzon last year – has spoken on the possibility of her joining the band full-time.

“If they would ask me, I would be very flattered and I would love to do it,” she tells Ghost Cult. It will be a major overhaul in my life and my career as a singer, but then again, we’re not rushing things.

Nightwish with Anette Olzon

“Both the guys in Nightwish and I have experiences with previous band breakups and all emotions that come with it. It’s almost like dating. Things feel good and it’s going well, but we’re not in a rush to tie the knot, so to speak.”
