It is indeed and undeniably 'Nightwish' as we know it!! My fears that this time we would be faced with something entirely different did not materialize. But this very same and familiar style is presented with an added edge to boot. Darker, more direct, a tad louder than before. There is a distinct or - shall we say - pretty heavy use of symphonic and folk elements that is another hallmark of their 8th full length studio album 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful'. So, undeniably 'Nightwish', but refreshingly different from their last record 'Imaginaerum'.
