Nightwish - Video Bonus Track Online


The following message was posted on Nightwish's official website:

"The video of the track "While Your Lips Are Still Red", written by Tuomas as the main theme track for the upcoming Finnish feature film "Lieska", is now available on YouTube from the link below. The track features Marco on vocals, Tuomas on keys and Jukka on drums. Though "While Your Lips Are Still Red" is not exactly a Nightwish-track, it will be included as a bonus track on Nightwish's forthcoming "Amaranth" CD-single.

The movie "Lieska!", directed and written by renown Finnish movie director Markku Pölönen, premiers in Finland during September 2007. Watch the video here."

The single "Amaranth" will precede the album on August 24 (Nuclear Blast) and August 22 (Spinefarm/Universal). The album "Dark Passion Play" will be released on September 28 via Nuclear Blast Records (most of Europe), September 26 via Spinefarm Records/Universal (Finland) and September 28 via Roadrunner Records (USA).

Just want to say that this song absolutely restores my faith in Tuomas' songwriting skills - in fact it's one of the best songs I've heard lately. And Marco's vocals are very different, but he sounds amazing here! The video goes very well with the song, too.

i only think, that singing in this song will suit better to female vocal than to "soft" Marco's voice...but anyway it is nice one

Do I dream or does it sound exactly like "Eva" ? Listen to the piano...
And they forgot they were a metal band...
Hopefully, Marco's voice sounds quite well...

It do sounds exactly like Eva in some places, like the chorus. I don't know if it's on purpose or something, like a male version of Eva? 'Cuz otherwise it's pretty dull if one ask me.

That is by far the wimpiest metal video I've ever seen. The song is REALLY promising, though, looks like I might even be buying this album.

I like Marco's vocals here, the song, overall, is good, one thing that bothered in the video is the Tuomas's tag along behind Marco, it was simply silly!

@Bararey: Not only Tuomas, but one can actually see Anette there in the beckgroudn too But I thought it was great, everything about the video was great. And the music really sounded like the music in a Nightwish ballad. I love Marco's vocals. Hail Nightwish \m/

You're right! I can barely see her though, she is over-shadowed by Tuomas!
(was this one of the requirements of the new singer, that she does not steal attention from Tuomas? )

Doesn't do much for me (just like Eva doesn't). The movie looks great, however! This video would have been much better if it eliminated the oddly creepy facial expressions of Marco and Tuomas behind him. In fact, just only having the movie scenes would have been better for me.

Then it would be a new band since Marco can't sing the old Tarja songs.

Who knows! Maybe he can use the infamous "castrati" (when the vocalist cuts his balls off to sing like a chick, best example is Detonator from Massacration) technic! Lol just playing

Well do you think this chick can sing the old songs?! HELL NO! Her voice is just like Sharon's (from Within Temptation)....

Still think that they are better off with Marco

But Nigtwish has always been a female fronted band. And don't be so certain that she can't sing the old songs. I've just heard some samples and whole Eva, and that song doesn't really show all her capacity.
