Like any music fan I always look forward to new music from my favourite artists. Sometimes the anticipation is almost palpable. But as per usual it never rains it pours.
The next 2 weeks alone will see the release of new music that I will most likely purchase the first day it comes out.
The first will be the new album from Tarja Turunen. Tarja was the original lead singer of Finnish symphonic metal act Nightwish. Her solo career has been almost as successful and her highly anticipated new album “Colours In The Dark” is rumoured to be her heaviest yet.
The second is the new Nine Inch Nails album “Hesitation Marks”. Trent Reznor has been playing coy in recent years by claiming that Nine Inch Nails were on indefinite hiatus. He has kept himself busy with soundtrack work such as for the film “The Social Network” as well as with his wife’s band “How To Destroy Angels”. All the while he was secretly writing Nine Inch Nails material.
I anticipate these two albums will both be on high rotation at my place from the moment I obtain them!
