Within Temptation Covering ... everything?

To celebrate their 15th anniversary Within Temptation decided to do something a little different and released a new cover every week leading up to their celebratory live 15th anniversary performance in Antwerp in November 2012.

I am a big fan of metal bands covering more generic popular music and making them awesome and these covers are just genius.

Anette Olzon - Solo Project

Recently Nightwish parted company with singer Anette Olzon.  Soon after I went to see Nightwish in Manchester with the awesome Floor Jansen.  I have to say it was a treat.  However, Anette has been working hard since the split and it seems that she recently posted this to her official blog:

"I just finished writing my new song that I've been working on for some weeks... This time I am doing the lyrics in Swedish and it was a bit hard but also challenging to do that, and now I've just sent it to my friend Fredrik Bergh to see how it will sound after the music is added. Since I don't play instruments so well, I always need help with recording. That, and Fredrik is fast and really good at what he does.
