TARJA TURUNEN Interview

June 24th, 2013

Tarja Turunen

Interview by Ashlinn Nash

Photography by Jo Blackened

https://www.facebook.com/Altercarnated.Photography

The angelic soaring soprano, Tarja Turunen, is known as a musician who has brought mystery and elegance, to every song she has graced from her early career with Nightwish, to her own carved out solo adventures. With the announcement of a new album, “colours in the dark” which has been recorded between her busy touring schedules, is set to be another slice of excellence that is both hard hitting and accentuated with symphonic styles. After her phenomenal rock releases “My Winterstorm” (2007) and “What Lies Beneath” (2010), Tarja is back with her darkest  album yet.

TARJA: Finnish Songstress Announces First Single + Video From Forthcoming Studio Album; New Lyric Clip Posted

June 4th, 2013

tarja2008-2An evocative snare-drum seemingly derived from some mysterious place, the tender sound of an orchestra followed by a familiar and seductive oboe melody… When TARJA’s distinctive voice resounds through the speakers, her warm timbre fills the room. Her melody is full of tender emotion before the song explodes into an epic, heavy chorus:

 

“Hysterical, tragical

Victim of ritual

Cynical, critical

Victim of ritual

She’s a killer, killer

She’s a killer, killer”

- Excerpt of “Victim Of Ritual” by TARJA

TARJA TURUNEN To Release ‘Colours In The Dark’

May 6th, 2013

Tarja-blackFormer NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen will release her new album, “Colours In The Dark”, on August 23 via earMUSIC, the Hamburg, Germany-based international rock label which is part of Edel Group.

 

Despite her light and shiny personality, Tarja’s music has always been dressed “in black” — the color of heavy rock, of mystery and elegance.

 

With Tarja’s new album, fans will find out what happens when a splice of color is added to the mix. Or — better said — when the full-color spectrum enters the picture it does not cover the black but makes it shine through with many emotions and landscapes.

earMUSIC to release TARJA’s first ever solo live album and video in rock outfit ; “Act I” to be released August 24 – new track “Into The Sun” heralding single!

June 14th, 2012
Tarja Turunen

Tarja Turunen

Hamburg, Germany, based label earMUSIC, the rock branch of entertainment company EDEL, is happy to announce the release of TARJA’s first ever solo live album as a rock singer. “ACT I” will hit stores August 24th across the globe, featuring breathtaking theatre performances from Argentina in sound and vision. The release will come in various formats: as a 2CD, a 2DVD and a Blu-Ray version.

“ACT I” is Tarja’s first solo live audio and video product in her rock outfit. The main content was filmed and recorded on two show nights this March 2012 in Rosario, Argentina, at the Teatro El Círculo. The video products include plenty of extras – video and photo material.

With the elaborate track listing and its extras, “ACT I” provides the full-fledged bill of fare to either Tarja fan. The track listing consists of Tarja’s greatest solo tracks, Nightwish classics as well as some cover versions, such as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom Of The Opera” and marvellous Gary Moore’s “Over The Hills and Far Away” – or to make it short: a unique blend of music selection. The set up of these HD filmed concerts meant an incredible extra work and effort in the live production – with an impressive result, but also an emotional rollercoaster-ride. Says Turunen: “those two nights in Rosario were a huge emotional drive to me personally.” The artist herself admits, she “was many times ready to burst into tears.”

“ACT I”, as the title already suggests, is the vanguard in a sequence of live products at a yet to be determined point of time. Fans and media can actively follow Tarja at www.tarja-act1.com on the road to release day of “ACT I”.

While releasing “ACT I”, Tarja is already working on her next solo studio album. “ACT I” already features two brand new tracks by the Finnish Soprano: “Into The Sun” is the lead single for the live album, to be released up-front August 24th.
On the artist Tarja:

No other voice and artist influenced and basically created the female fronted symphonic metal genre as much as Tarja Turunen. A pioneer in Goth-and Symphonic Metal, the classically trained Finn rose to fame with the metal outfit Nightwish, whose face and voice she had been for 9 years. With a vocal range of a lyrical soprano, Turunen started her solo career in 2004. Releasing two very successful metal rock solo albums (2007 and 2010), awarded gold and platinum in multiple countries, Tarja Turunen has been constantly touring the world with her live band.

Adored by many fans as their “Goddess”, the Finnish Soprano has the skill to take her fans just by her presence. Probably more than any other female artist in this very genre. When classic meets Rock and Heavy Metal, this inevitably leads to Tarja.

NIGHTWISH

10′TH of MARCH, 2012

ICE HALL, HELSINKI

Symphonic metal quintet Nightwish, the most successful Finnish band abroad at the moment, played a show in front of over 7000 people in Helsinki’s Old Ice Hall. The show was a part of the bands six day Finland tour which was a great hit when all shows were completely sold out. It seems that Nightwish is now having the time of their career although their future was at stake following former vocalist Tarja Turunen’s departure in 2005. Swedish vocalist, Anette Olzon, was chosen to replace Tarja in 2007 the band’s latest two albums DARK PASSION PLAY and IMAGINAERUM have received both critical and commercial success across the globe.

TARJA TURUNEN Writing Songs For New Album

June 17th, 2011

Former NIGHTWISH vocalist TARJA TURUNEN checks in with the following update:

“I had a true pleasure to perform in Samara, Russia a few days ago. I never thought the local people would welcome me so warmly there though. Most of the bands were Russians and I was a bit nervous how my music would fit in at this Rock on Volga festival. When it was time for us to start our show, people were shouting my name and my doubts were gone. Our show was great and the people in Russia were beautiful to us.

The organization of the Festival confirmed that there were 242,000 people watching my show that night!!! That is more than 4 football stadiums all together! It was very difficult to see the people far back at the end. This was an overwhelming experience for all in the band and one of the nicest moments in my career. Something I will never forget.

I got a chance to sing in Russian with KIPELOV and that just topped everything I had experienced so far. I had the lyrics in front of me, but not even once I needed to check them out! I was so proud of myself. Ha-Ha. Russian is definitely very difficult language, but I wanted to learn it well. Let me tell you, it was a hard work, but I am a hard worker!

Today I woke up in the morning and found out that I am on a beautiful island where the sun is shining and the breeze of the sea is tender. It’s really amazing to realize how happy one can be just when there is silence around. Well, now there is a little lizard keeping me a company and a bird came to say hello too.

Now I am writing songs again for the new rock album. I am sure the environment I am having around me at the moment helps me a lot with it. Oh, the nature is very inspiring here.

Next time you will see me in Serbia and I am truly excited to travel there again. It has been way too long since my last visit.

With love, Tarja.”

TARJA TURUNEN: “What Lies Beneath” Out Today + “Making Of” The Album Video

September 14th, 2010
Tarja - International Cover

Tarja - International Cover

What Lies Beneath is the new album from the Finnish multi-platinum singer Tarja Turunen, best known as the original vocalist of Nightwish and the most successful female singer from Finland ever.

Effortlessly fusing metal, classical and pop-rock, What Lies Beneath was recorded and produced by Tarja and mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, The Cure, Robert Plant), Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Bullet For My Valentine) and Slamm Andrews (Scores of Angels & Demon, Pirates of The Caribbean, Gladiator).

The album debuted this week at #4 on the German charts and Noisecreep recently detailed the videos for the first single, “Until My Last Breath,” and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, which can be seen below:

Special guests on What Lies Beneath include Phil Labonte (All That Remains), Joe Satriani, Jason Hook (5 Finger Death Punch), Will Calhoun (Living Colour), The Slovak National Symphony Orchestra and Choir and more. About.com said the album features “tons of melody to spare, and Tarja’s soaring soprano all over the place” while RockSound extolls, “this remains very much a distinctly classy showcase for Turunen’s utterly flawless, inimitable vocals, strong songwriting skills, and admirable desire to neither rest on her laurels, nor confine herself to any particular style.”

Purchase What Lies Beneath digitally on iTunes and physically through Amazon.
