Those of you who didn’t know it already will not be surprised to learn that there is a Finnish symphonic rock outfit called Nightwish. They have recently sacked their soprano lead, so, if that’s your bag, now’s your chance to put on your horned helmet and boob-armour and record a demo for them. This YouTube video will give you something to work from. For the rest of us it turns a live performance of one of their goth-tastic songs, Wishmaster, into five minutes of rib-tickling entertainment. I particularly enjoyed the rendering of the guitar solo approaching the three-minute mark.
