Nightwish ruined my life » Favorite Lead Singer [1/1]: Tarja Turunen
Choosing between two of my favorite vocalists, both whom I have been listening to since my teenage years, was really difficult. But then, this is a Nightwish meme. And I feel that in this context I could have made no other choice. Back in 2004, when I listened to Nightwish’s music for the first time, I was really impressed by Tarja’s beautiful and powerful vocals, which at times gives their songs an energetic and bombastic feel, or a deep and intense atmosphere at others. To me it was, and still is, an intrinsic part of the band’s earlier unique allure.
