No other voice and artist influenced and basically created the female fronted symphonic metal genre as much as Tarja. A pioneer in goth- and symphonic metal, the classically trained Finn rose to fame with the band Nightwish, whose face and voice she had been for 9 years. Tarja, whose vocal range goes as far as three octaves, started her solo career after stepping out of Nightwish in 2004.
The official music video to "Bless The Child", taken from the 2002 album "Century Child".
"I was born amidst the purple waterfalls I was weak, yet not unblessed Dead to the world Alive for the journey One night I dreamt a white rose withering A newborn drowning, a lifetime loneliness I dreamt all my future, relived my past
And witnessed the beauty of the beast" Where have all the feelings gone? Why has all the laughter ceased? Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child How can I ever feel again? Given the chance would I return? Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time I've never felt so alone in my life As I drank from a cup which was counting my time There's a poison drop in this cup of man To drink it is to follow the left hand path Why am I loved only when I'm gone? Gone back in time to bless the child Think of me long enough to make a memory Come bless the child one more time Think of me long enough to make a memory Come bless the child one more time "Where have all the feelings gone? Why is the deadliest sin to love as I loved you? Now unblessed, homesick in time Soon to be freed from care, from human pain My tale is the most bitter truth Time pays us but with earth and dust, and a dark, silent grave Remember my child, without innocence the cross is only iron Hope is only an illusion and ocean soul's nothing but a name The child bless thee and keep thee forever"
It is possible that this epic story of Nightwish 1996-2005 was deep down a love story between those two. The deepest source of inspiration and motivation for Tuomas maybe was Tarja and his lasting yet unfullfiled, burning love for her, while Tarja was somehow connected to him but unable to feel that same love. Maybe that is why the music was so brilliant and the whole thing couldn't help but explode and be forgotten like a dream..
===================================================== Oh god this was such a pain to complete, i spent over a month in making this video. I watched the whole TFA Serie to get the scenes i needed for my tribute to Blackarachnia. Took me just two days to watch the whole animated three seasons serie. Sense the wiki couldn't even mention her appearences i had to watch the whole serie. Do i regret watching this serie? Mostly yes... but honestly not that much, it wasnt a bad serie i just watched it cuz of my huge interest Blackarachnia. Anyway i think i will take a break after making this tribute. These tributes are not easy to make, they take a lot of time. work and energy to complete. Anyway i hope you all enjoyed my tribute to Blackarachnia ;) ===================================================== #Transformers #Blackarachnia #Tribute ===================================================== Scenes used in this video: Transformers Animated (2007) Transformers Beast Wars (1996-1999) ===================================================== Song: Whoever brings the Night by Nightwish ===================================================== Check out my other Music Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPP1xgfOJU7PRbi3Fm2frOETk6RtDjPS4 ===================================================== I own nothing used in this video all the rights goes to their original creators and respective owners.

During their "Decades" tour they had the chance to catch up with Tuomas in Nuremberg from the Finnish metal legends Nightwish.
They talked about their new record, how they chose the track list for it and what we can still expect from them after twenty years. Further, Mr. Holopainen gave an update on the songwriting process of their new album and gave an outlook on his new project Auri!
Of the commentary: "Tuomas is so nice and polite and so humble. A founder of one of the biggest bands currently on Earth, and he is still down to Earth and is not losing any creativity and I just admire him so much. Nightwish music is a big part of my life and I even had the honor to join their biggest indoor show which was Prague before exactly a week. Absolutely stunning, precise, incredibly detailed show that left me breathless. This band really is something else." -Dutchman Callypso
