Vocals done!

And finally all the vocal recordings for the new CD are done! 🙂 🙂

This is already enough good reason to open a bottle of wine to celebrate, as the feeling is that we are almost there…

I always love to experiment new things with my voice and this last song we recorded with my engineer in Buenos Aires, Mario, was not an exception.


This song I decided some time ago that it will be the closing track of the album. It was challenging to write about the story of “Medusa”.

Just before travelling to L.A. to work with Jim the orchestra and choir arrangements I run into Eugenio’s studio to take new promotional photos.



With love, Tarja

  12. 03/24/2013

    I can’t wait to hear your new cd Tarja! I love to hear you sing so much. I know I’m going down a dead end road but I pray you and Nightwish will somehow find it in your hearts to forgive and forget. Unfortunately I discovered you guys after your departure but my favorite to watch is End Of An Era. Never again will there be a performance with the magic and heart like you guys did in that one. No matter what I’ll always be a fan. Best wishes from the east coast of North Carolina…”Hugs” 🙂

    I’m glad to see it, I’m waiting to hear a new album from this Great Singer. Tarja has an increadible voice and talent. Much more happiness for you, family and her work partners!

  21. 03/24/2013

    Minha querida Náiade, mal posso esperar por essa nova obra. E quanto a música Medusa, não precisa lembrar que será perfeita. A letra quando vira música a partir da tua voz se converte em arte. Sou e sempre serei teu fã. Boa sorte e sucesso! ^^

  22. 03/24/2013

    Jukka : We finished the show, and Tarja leaves away without talking with us ! That’s one thing that makes me furious !
    Emppu : It’s better to turn off the camera. We’ll scold her a little…

    Tuomas : If I could make a request to God, I wish it was invented teleporters at airports.

    Cameraman: Do not forget to give me that, later.
    Tarja: 🙂

    God: Everything that is perfect must die. This is the end of Nightwish.

    Bruno : God, you’re making a mistake. Tarja need to has a child, even if it is a boy, because she is an excellent representative of women.
    God: I know. In fact she already had a daughter. In secret.

    God : Tarja has no master to show where her voice can reach.

    God: The members of Nightwish can not die with remorse each other. This can not happen. Do something.

    God: In the Tarja’s next album will be the presence of the rampant – the Medusa !

  23. 03/24/2013

    Tarja eres maravillosa, mi inspiración para cantar. Muchas Gracias, y aunque se que nunca tendré la potabilidad de conocerte ni decirte lo que has significado para mi, solo te digo gracias por tu hermosa voz.

  24. 03/24/2013

    U are the best! I love u Tarja! Good luck! 🙂 <3

  47. Juan Pablo (80XxbelialxX08)

    Martin: creo que Tarja se refería al personaje de la mitología griega, Medusa, no a las medusas del mar… XD.
    La historia de Medusa es bastánte trágica y oscura, seguramente Tarja le hará justicia a ese hermoso mito <3

  48. 03/24/2013

    Hola! Soy de Mendoza, me encantaría que vengas en tu gira de rock, ya que de seguro asistirá mucha gente! Gracias por todo!
