Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen is our guest this week. We discuss the band's new album, Human. :II: Nature., whether there were any concerns about releasing it during the quarantine, working with a real choir and orchestra instead of using samples, and finding her vocal timing in the studio, as well as how COVID-19 has taught people to slow down in life and why not doing concerts is the safest way to take care of fans. Floor also shares a story about the time Vinnie Paul showed up at a Nightwish concert, her experience performing at a venue with a bowling alley next to the stage, what it was like to become the first band to ever film a video at London's National History Museum, and having a new species of beetle named after her.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss the new concert safety guidelines that don't permit moshing or crowdsurfing, MS co-founder Vince Neilstein's article on age defining your taste in heavy metal, and Serj Tankian’s comments about how his new EP will consist of songs he wrote for System of A Down.
Songs: Nightwish - “Noise," “Tribal," Killswitch Engage - “To The Great Beyond”
