Nightwishin entinen laulaja Anette Olzon muistelee 13 vuotta täyttänyttä ”Dark Passion Play” -albumia: ”Olen erittäin ylpeä albumista”

Sinfonista metallia soittavan Nightwishin ”Dark Passion Play” -albumille tuli syyskuun 26. päivä mittariin 13 vuotta. Bändissä vuosien 2007–2012 välisen ajan laulanut laulaja Anette Olzon on julkaissut omassa Instagramissaan kirjoituksen albumin merkkipäivän kunniaksi. Kirjoituksessaan Olzon kertoo olevansa erittäin ylpeä albumista vielä 13 vuoden jälkeenkin. Olzon kertoo albumin toimineen hänelle erittäin ”avartavana albumina”, koska hän pääsi keikkailemaan ympäri maailmaa ja näkemään, millaista elämä ammattimuusikkona on. Voit lukea muistelun tästä:

”So I’ve seen some of you sharing that it’s 13 years ago today since the release of ’Dark Passion Play’. Can’t believe it’s been so many years now but this album is of course very dear to me. It was what made me able to live on my music finally at the age of 36 and it’s been my dream since childhood to be a singer full time and the dream came true when I was chosen to sing in NIGHTWISH.

”The recording was 3 weeks for me where me and Tuomas [Holopainen, NIGHTWISH keyboardist/mainman] lived in the forest during Finnish winter time. We recorded songs, we had fun and it was a great time we had. I didn’t know the boys that well in that time but the tour that came with the album was massive and I got to see the world. It was both an exciting time but also a stresful time since I had no idea how big the band really was when I joined and I had never been on a long tour so it was heavy job both mentally but also physically.

”I have so many nice memories and the thing with this album was that it was so much loved by the non metal fans too. It was played in the radio here in Sweden and was number one in the children’s top list and we won the amazing Echo award with it. So I will always feel so blessed to have been on this album and I am proud of my performance on it. The songs were not written for me and it was challenging many times to record them. But thanks to all of you who have bought it and for all the support we got with it.

”Happy birthday to me, the other NIGHTWISH boys and of course to ’Dark Passion Play’.”
