Reminds of a song that would be played in a D&D movie, Harry Potter or something. I like it

blyej: I prefer the earlier stuff. Wishmaster is my favorite and then probably Oceanborn, then Century Child.

love the folk theme in this song. Folk metal has become fairly popular lately.

i was stuck in a pop-rut before i went to a TSO concert and added them to my playlist here on pandora... the first song that popped up after that was Nightwish's "Last of the Wilds"... i left the pop garbage behind pretty fast...hehe

@beltran: so i agree with you... yes musical exploration is a wonderful thing indeed. :)

I love this song...I usually listened to thrash nu and harder types of Metal, but Nightwish is truly a great band that introduced me to symphonic and Goth metal. Musical exploration, such a wonderful thing

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Helped me start to expand out and listen to slower music. Lyrically it's beautiful as well.

So, ariellajem, what albums are your favorite? Mine are Century Child and Once.

Scara nailed it.

One of the few redeeming songs on this album. Feels like pre-Century Child Nightwish.

I like Nightwish, but am I the only one that's reminded of 'Stonehenge' from Spinal Tap when they hear this song?
