Tune In Tuesday: Rock Opera

Tune in Tuesday at GReads is hosted by Ginger at GReads Books and showcases music. Each week we can post a new or old song in hopes to gain more interest. Let's help her in spreading the love of music!

So as August is a regular Tune In Tuesday month, this week I'm going to feature big voices bringing it center stage in a rock band.  That's right everyone.  I'm talking about... Rock. Opera.  Oh, yeah.  Who better to start out with than one of my favorite bands, Nightwish.  

Now, this is their original vocalist, who is pretty awesome but sometimes a bit tough to understand in the way of the lyrics.  Still, "Wish I Had an Angel" is one epic song.  The actual video's a wee bit on the freaky side, so I'm linking one with the lyrics.

And this is their current vocalist, which I have to say is pretty awesome, too.  "Amaranth" was the first song featuring the new vocalist, and I think she really blends well with the band.

Last is another band I've grown to love dearly, Within Temptation.  Their songs really do tell stories and you can just imagine what those stories look like.  My favorite has to be "Hand of Sorrow."

I hope you enjoyed, dear readers.  ^_^
