brought me back to my metal roots

It has been a while since really finding a band that I can get into. This album was my introduction to Nightwish and I am glad I found it. I have since checked out the other stuff by them including with the prev singer. I like the old and new and find that they are able to keep a really unique sound that is sweet to hear.
