Bringing back some topics from the old forum... Discuss here how you first heard Nightwish, what made you a fan, the first song/album you ever heard, so on and so forth. For me, I first heard of Nightwish back in '01 when I started visiting the Stratovarius forum. I noticed every time anyone would come to the forum and ask the fans to suggest new music to them, time and time again the name "Nightwish" was brought up. This was back before I knew how to download music, so I did not have an instantaneous way to check them out. Eventually, a few months later, in July of '01, I was at one of my favorite metal shops in San Diego, and noticed a copy of Angels Fall First and Over the Hills and Far Away being sold. Since I only had enough money to buy one, and since Over the Hills looked to be an EP, I bought Angels Fall First because it was a full-length album. I had never heard a single note of their music, but it was one of the best impulse buys I had ever made! Now everyone else, post your stories!
