It figures that I was just saying that I didn’t much feel like talking about the new Nightwish album because it just wasn’t intriguing me much and then the band goes ahead and releases not only a song but a video to go along with it. The track is ‘Storytime’ off the upcoming Imaginerium album due in January and let me tell you if the rest of the album is like this, we’re in for a New Year trainwreck. It’s like a combination of behind the scenes filming of the movie that is to coincide with this thing and just flat out hamming it up performance stuff. All of the chaotic nonsense in the video aside the song is just not doing it for me. This will be the first album where Annette is involved in the creation of the music and this is doing nothing to change my mind about her as a metal vocalist. Somebody on Nightwish’s Facebook page said they just heard the reincarnation of Abba and funny as that is it’s kind of true. It’s like if Abba had become a metal band or something. Check out the video for yourself and let me know what you think of Annette looking psychotic while eating apples.
