XANDRIA — Valentine | Napalm Records

ORDER NOW -- Limited Digipack incl. Bonus Track! http://shop.napalmrecords.com/neverworld-s-end-ltd-digipack.html

An Epic Symphonic Metal Jewel. First Orders will receive a FREE EXCLUSIVE A2 XANDRIA Poster. Following a break of several years, Xandria returns with "Neverworld’s End". Since their shot-to-fame debut "Kill the Sun" and the successor "Ravenheart" with its ever-popular hit "Ravenheart", the band has attracted an ever-increasing fan base. Further outstanding releases such as "India", as well as successful tours, secured Xandria’s top position within the music scene. The new album also continues the impressive trajectory. Both the opening number, "A Prophecy of Worlds to Fall", and "Valentine" confirm that the band has stayed true to its original sound, while tipping the scales in favor of more metal. Heavy guitars and a driving double bass meet symphonic elements and captivating melodies. With one highlight after another, fans will have no other choice but to submit to Xandria’s allure. Manuela Kraller’s refined and appealing vocal performance will convince even the most hard-bitten of skeptics. She understands how to express an entire range of emotions and is an incredible asset to the band. The new album was recorded in the noted Principal Studios and its impressive production delivers both heaviness and clarity. "Neverworld’s End" delivers the perfect union between metal and magnificence: a symphonic metal album full of sensual and breathtaking moments.

Stop comparing Xandria with Nightwish. Xandria are more aggressive while Nightwish has a certain elegance to their songs, especially the ones with Tarja. But in the end they are both great bands and it only comes down to everyone's personal preference.

Xandria-defending time. A lot people who have heard the symphonic metal band Xandria say they are simply a "not-bad" or "Hm... It's close as quality" clone of Nightwish. Now, that I learned more about soprano types and thought and analysed even deeper, I can even better argue with this opinion.
For me, Xandria is an "upgraded" version of Nightwish. They are way more epic. Now I will explain why.
1/ The vocal harmonies are more intense, bigger, wider, with more voices, more often and more accented. (e.g. especially the 3:41 part of Nightfall, the Pactum Fraudis part in Valentine at 2:31. You can't see that intense, epic, powerful and high-pitched vocal harmonies in any Nightwish song, right? And it’s only one part of one song that has a few more parts like that, while there are around 2 more douzens of songs that are around the levels of Valentine or even MORE intense and epic than Valentine (e.g. nearly the basically whole Nightfall except the guitar solo literally doesn’t let you breathe because of that kind of vocal harmonies))
2/ There are some occasional choirs and they have a gothic hint in a big part of their songs. (e.g. A Prophecy of Worlds to Fall; We Are Murderers; Cursed; Burn Me; Nightfall; Stardust; Betrayer and more). The gothic hint make them also more variable than the nearly only symphonic power metal-based Nightwish.
Before we go to №3, I have to explain the differences between the soprano types. Lyric soprano is a soprano that has enough power to only be heard over the orchestra but doesn't really shine with power, epicness, intensity. They are best at spinning out long, delicate, lyric lines. This is usually calmer, right? A dramatic soprano is usually a soprano with a bit lower/smaller range but has a REALLY powerful voice and sends shivers down the spine and makes you full goosebumps with thoughts like "WOW, this is unbelievably epic, powerful and intense". They are best at punching out very dramatic passages. A spinto soprano is a soprano that is between the 2 and combines the characteristics of the 2. Spintos can both easily hit the high notes of a lyric soprano, yet can be "pushed" on to achieve dramatic climaxes without strain.
So here we come to 3:
3/ Tarja is a lyric soprano. Dianne van Giersbergen is a spinto soprano (I thought for a long time she was a dramatic one but this is actually better because it is both Tarja and epicness at the same time). So, in terms of epicness and intensity:
Dianne van Giersbergen >>> Tarja Turunen ANY DAY. Manuela Kraller seems as a dramatic soprano to me, so the same can be said about her with even bigger confidence.

I hate that people keep comparing this to Nightwish, as well as the two vocalists.
It's not fair that everyone has to be a "Nightwish wannabe" or "copycat." Yes, Nightwish created something great, but that doesn't mean that nobody else can have a similar style. In that case 98% of all musicians would be "copycats." Everyone gets inspiration from SOMEONE, and I don't see why being like Nightwish would be a bad thing anyways. Besides, there are several bands with this style, it's just that only a few have been recognized. It's a great sound, so please act like adults and enjoy it.
They're both good, no, great. Quit comparing the two.
Samhein 25 декабря 2018 года в 18:10
DamnationDesire, You have to admit that it IS the same music... not even the same KIND. There is a difference between "inspiration" (for example Within Temptation inspired, among other things, by Bjorg , celtic music, Kate Bush, Slayer, Tool : they mixed it all up to create something awesome and unique ! Same thing with the creation of Nightwish) and "doing the exact same thing", like here where - not watching my screen - I had the impression of listening an unknown song of Nightwish... I don't spit on the performance, though, this is great, but she's imitating Tarja.

Desolate Soul 12 января 2018 года в 21:14
Very true Desire. If you want to get technical, in the past decade or so, Nightwish would be considered a ripoff of Evanessence who made Gothic Rock popular, or mainstream if you will. Nightwish is an awesome band, but that doesn't mean that everyone wants to be a copycat. ALL music is a ripoff of someone. Get over yourselves folks. No one is trying to "steal" anyone's sound. Music is an influence of the next artist and the artist after that.

Stop comparing Manuela with Tarja, PLEASE. They may sound a bit similiar but it doesn't mean that "Oh Manu tries to sound like Tarja Xandria is a copycat" NO ONE CAN CHOOSE THEIR VOICES.
gredangeo 09 января 2015 года в 09:12
It's an Opera voice. They're going to sound quite the same anyways. Singing notes pure does that. Less uniqueness.
Steelhead1986 09 марта 2016 года в 01:09 3
Out of the many opera-style metal vocalists that I know only two are really special: Tarja and Manuella. I don't get what is the secret maybe it's a mix of things like a very rich timbre, great range and skills or personal style but they have a kind of "luxury" or "splendour" in their voices.
Gabe Lopez 19 октября 2015 года в 01:34 206
Manuela has a distinctive "Power" in her style, like a queen giving orders at the battlefront. Diane, in contrast, reminds me more of a playful princess, or faerie guiding a troop of warriors.
CharlesCarabott 23 августа 2018 года в 20:17
I prefer dianne
iowa406 06 мая 2018 года в 01:36
No. Manuela, like Tarja are goddesses. Dienne, like Simone, Vibeke, Floor, are queens.

Mikhail Cazi 01 мая 2015 года в 05:07 5
Wow, this is the first Manuela song I've heard of Xandria, and I'm loving this! Definitely better than Nightfall, which is the only other Xandria song I've heard.
Vincent Bar 09 мая 2015 года в 13:16
I like nightfall more, but it could be that it was the first one I listened to.
悪夢のハンター 30 декабря 2014 года в 21:45 16
Just because Tarja is best known than Manuela, doesn't mean she is better. I think that Manuela is one of the best classical singers in metal bands. In other words, I guess that Manuela is better than Tarja. I love both, but Manuela is unique. In fact, Neverworld's End is my favorite album from Symphonic Metal.

Though I love Neverworld's End and Sacrificium equally and Manuela and Dianne equally.

They sound nothing alike. Comparing dianne in nightfall to tarja makes more sense, but even then is only certain words have a similar accent. Nothing alike
Георги Пеев 01 сентября 2018 года в 21:12
No. Manuela Kraller is a dramatic soprano, Tarja is a lyric. Dramatic sopranos are more powerful, intense epic.

I'm going to say it, Manuela is better than Tarja.

Her entire performance on Neverworlds End was phenomenal. She would have been the perfect person to replace Anette
Andrés Mera 27 октября 2018 года в 04:21
I completely agree. Manuella must have been the next Nightwish vocalist after Tarja

I love Manuela's voice so wonderful. Diane is also absolutely amazing and I love her work with the band too. I know everyone wants to compare them to Nightwish. Both bands are amazing, there is no need to compare them. I do prefer Floor with Nightwish, and I love Tarja's work since she went solo. Still all four of those women have amazing voices.

Xandria-defending time. A lot people who have heard the symphonic metal band Xandria say they are simply a "not-bad" or "Hm... It's close as quality" clone of Nightwish. Now, that I learned more about soprano types and thought and analysed even deeper, I can even better argue with this opinion.
For me, Xandria is an "upgraded" version of Nightwish. They are way more epic. Now I will explain why.
1/ The vocal harmonies are more intense, bigger, wider, with more voices, more often and more accented. (e.g. especially the 3:41 part of Nightfall, the Pactum Fraudis part in Valentine at 2:31. You can't see that intense, epic, powerful and high-pitched vocal harmonies in any Nightwish song, right? And it’s only one part of one song that has a few more parts like that, while there are around 2 more douzens of songs that are around the levels of Valentine or even MORE intense and epic than Valentine (e.g. nearly the basically whole Nightfall except the guitar solo literally doesn’t let you breathe because of that kind of vocal harmonies))
2/ There are some occasional choirs and they have a gothic hint in a big part of their songs. (e.g. A Prophecy of Worlds to Fall; We Are Murderers; Cursed; Burn Me; Nightfall; Stardust; Betrayer and more). The gothic hint make them also more variable than the nearly only symphonic power metal-based Nightwish.
Before we go to №3, I have to explain the differences between the soprano types. Lyric soprano is a soprano that has enough power to only be heard over the orchestra but doesn't really shine with power, epicness, intensity. They are best at spinning out long, delicate, lyric lines. This is usually calmer, right? A dramatic soprano is usually a soprano with a bit lower/smaller range but has a REALLY powerful voice and sends shivers down the spine and makes you full goosebumps with thoughts like "WOW, this is unbelievably epic, powerful and intense". They are best at punching out very dramatic passages. A spinto soprano is a soprano that is between the 2 and combines the characteristics of the 2. Spintos can both easily hit the high notes of a lyric soprano, yet can be "pushed" on to achieve dramatic climaxes without strain.
So here we come to 3:
3/ Tarja is a lyric soprano. Dianne van Giersbergen is a spinto soprano (I thought for a long time she was a dramatic one but this is actually better because it is both Tarja and epicness at the same time). So, in terms of epicness and intensity:
Dianne van Giersbergen >>> Tarja Turunen ANY DAY. Manuela Kraller seems as a dramatic soprano to me, so the same can be said about her with even bigger confidence.
馬克Marco 14 февраля 2017 года в 07:43
Actually, Tarja is a lot better....not all of them sound the same! Laura Fygi is great, for example, but a Taiwanese singer named Chyi Yu sounds better singing "Windmills of Your Mind"....just like EVERYONE sounds better than the original when covering a Bob Dylan song!
FreezingEmbrace 14 февраля 2017 года в 06:55
because tarja is nothing special so all operatic singers sound the same
馬克Marco 11 января 2017 года в 05:11
Better vocal quality, however... Still, this is a decent look-a-like...

I found this band by accident while searching for a different one and I clicked it out of curiosity. I am glad I did because she has a stunningly beautiful voice and I love the way she dresses. I'm not usually into metal (it is metal, right? sorry, I'm not always sure what genre a band fits into) but I like them. Maybe the lead vocals being female has something to do with it, I don't know. But I always enjoy finding new music that I end up liking.

Comments of a Nightwish song are like: Tarja vs. Anette ve. Floor
Comments here are like: "They sound like Nightwish" "Nightwish wannabes"
Come on, can we act our age and just enjoy the music...

Well folks, it appears we now have the next big debate among symphonic power metal fans: Manuella vs Diane.
Георги Пеев 23 августа 2018 года в 14:03
+Zombie Clown Waiting to include the third symphonic metal vocalist so stupid people can finally claim them as copycats of NW... (Tarja vs Anette vs Floor)

Nightfall is so amazing! someone uploaded the song. Go check it. If Valentine is good, just wait to hear Nightfall
Mike Greenwalt 22 апреля 2014 года в 22:55
It's a shame, really.  I met Manuela at PPUSA 2013 and she is the sweetest person.  But there is no debate.  New singer, new style, new sound.  I for one love the new singer from the excerpts of Sacrificium I've heard.
PrisPrisca15 19 апреля 2014 года в 07:15
Too bad Manu lasted for only one album BUT we got Dianne as lead singer. Dianne's singing is so awesome!!

This is really looks like compilation of a few old Nightwish songs.

All people talking about who vocalist is better or comparing them and nobody writes about the message within. This is not pop or regaetton. There are messages in metal songs so please, don´t act like another regaetton useless fan. THIS IS METAL, BE A METAL FAN.

How beautiful is the voice of Manuela? *.*
Holger Brunken 11 октября 2017 года в 23:29 2
The best album of Xandria. Manuela pushed the whole thing to a new dimension. Reminds to old Nightwish. Just Silent Elegy now left as a new hope.
Desolate Soul 12 января 2018 года в 21:32 3
For those who are all about Nightwish: Let me remind you that if you want to get technical, Nightwish would be considered a ripoff of Evanescence. Nightwish is an awesome band, but that doesn't mean that everyone wants to be a copycat. ALL music is a ripoff of someone. Get over yourselves folks. No one is trying to "steal" anyone's sound. Music is an influence of the next artist and the artist after that..
Никита Пушкин 19 ноября 2018 года в 08:43
Are you crazy? Evanescence is your typical radio pop music with just a run-of-the-mill singer, while old Nightwish was a great power metal band with a marvelous Tarja's voice. And yeah, Nightwish inspired lots of copycats with their sucess, like this band Xandria. It's not a bad thing though, since modern Nightwish is really uninspired since Once.
Mike Santos 30 августа 2018 года в 16:13
Nightwish a ripoff of Evanescence? I don't think so... Evanescence started in 95 and Nightwish just a year after. Evanescence released their first EP only in 98, while Nightwish was releasing their second album (Oeanborn) by that time. Listen to Evanescence's early EP's and compare to "Angels Fall First" or "Oceanborn". It's completely different.

I've listened a little bit of this new band (or older according to wikipedia) and IT SOUNDS SURPRISINGLY GOOD. A Gothic band with symphonic metal and rock metal. I like this and I will certainly follow them more closely.
Luis Humberto Niño Alvarez 04 марта 2014 года в 01:24 3

Duncan Buchanan 21 февраля 2018 года в 13:04 2
This is a high quality symphonic metal band. Yes she sounds closer to Tarja than Floor, but her sound is genuine and unique. I would happily go and see them. They are VERY VERY GOOD. I can say this as Nightwish fan.
Shotgun Arms 11 августа 2014 года в 22:31 4
I'd love to be content playing generic music while remaining faceless behind the female lead of the group.

Damn, they should've done whatever they had to to keep her. This is one of my favorite albums since Tarja left Nightwish. Hopefully Floor will pick up the slack.

Like Annete from NW? Nederlads ones better - both in NW and in Xandria. Herman Wirth was right))
Чем то похожа на Аньку, с ночной нужды. Голладские вокалистки лучше и там и там. Герман Вирт явно что-то знал)
CelticArchangel 19 февраля 2015 года в 03:12 3
Heads up! I'm one hell of a Nightwish fan and have been for yyeeaarrss, so baring that in mind, don't compare Xandria to Nightwish. It's roughly like comparing Ferrari to Lamborghini. Both are super cars.. but both are totally different. Xandria has qualities LIKE Nightwish of old, but NW is going in a slightly different direction now. Xandria very much has their own sound. 
Xandria is excellent and I recommend them to anyone who likes this genre. They have a fantastic sound. The symphonic world is happy to have this band. :)

David G 29 апреля 2018 года в 06:53 2
Too bad she didn't last long. Her voice is perfect for this band.
David G 02 мая 2018 года в 00:39
Charlotte Johanna You obviously know more than I do since I recently getting into this genre so I'll take your word for it. I have noticed they sound more like Nightwish and Therion now than in the beginning. What I have noticed is that Xandria's sound changed a bit following the original singer's departure. They used to use more subtle changes in the music and different styles of playing while emphasizing different parts at different times then they seemed to begin placing more emphasis on operatic vocals, heavier guitars and more dramatic orchestration while sacrificing dynamics amongst the instruments starting with Manuela here with it increasing slightly over time. To be fair, the guys likely had more say in the musical direction than she did since she was the newest member.
David G 29 апреля 2018 года в 17:36
Charlotte Johanna Copy of who? She was replaced right after this album with Dianne. If anything, Dianne's albums were a copy of the sound established with this singer.

Omg! She sounds soo much like Tarja! They should do a duo! :D
Георги Пеев 01 сентября 2018 года в 21:08
No. Manuela is a dramatic soprano, Tarja is a lyric soprno. Manuela is more powerful than Tarja, so - more epic.
But yes, I agree about the duo.
