A lot of news over the weekend and today, from D.R.I. working on new material to Dave Lombardo touring with Suicidal Tendencies. We are gonna focus on a sad story, however. Violence against someone in the metal community and a chance to put healing energy back out there should always take priority over other band news. Heck, all we have is one another.

Former Nightwish singer Anette Olzon deserves some get well wishes. Send her some nice comments at her Instagram, please.

The Shine singer was attacked randomly and some people even watched and failed to help her. That is wack!

 Today changed rapidly from a good day into a horrible day when I got beaten down and robbed by a junkie on my way home from my car. In the hospital now cause she hit me hard and I fell backwards in the stony street with my back head and I am quite shaken and bruised and the worst thing of it all was that there were two adult men standing one feet away watching me get beaten doing f-ckin nothing! Cowards!! Thank god a girl ran after and then finally two REAL men took the junkie down and she is now with the police! Drugs people are making people really dangerous!! I’ll write more after the dr but please be careful out there!

Album Review: Anette Olzon – Shine

I tend to really root for singers as soon as they exit Nightwish. Without wading too far into the bog of eternal stench that is the ongoing debate over ex-Nightwish and current Nightwish vocals, I will say that I believe Anette Olzon (like Tarja), probably got a bit of a raw deal. Nightwish are known for screwing over their singers and treating them as disposable. People always debate different eras of the band. No one sounds like the operatic Tarja (who in my experience has always been humble and very cool/down to earth), while new singer Floor Jansen is top notch and a real rocker who I wish was just in ReVamp cuz I am just plain biased against Nightwish and dont trust their press statements regarding singer’s “exits”. Second Nightwish singer and Tarja replacement Anette Olzon had her work cut out for her. A little more frumpy, not as big a range but a lot of heart and talent in her own right, Olzon tried valiantly to fill the biggest shoes in symphonic metal.

Some people worship early Nightwish so much that they don’t care if the band were dicks to Tarja and now seem willing to overlook Olzon claiming she was fired for a 3rd pregnancy (makes sense since the band never liked that she had a kid when she first wanted to join), while others say she was a diva without great fashion sense or was too poppy, blah blah. Every time I have seen a picture of her she is smiling or looking like she really enjoys the music she gets to make and she has also spoken well of Tarja or other “rivals”. She just doesn’t strike me as a careerist, uber bitch! People should give Anette a chance on her own merits re: Shine. Stand out track “Lies” promises real potential for growth and the feeling of freedom to the track makes this whole effort worth it. You can’t hear that intro and not feel your heart soar a little bit.
