Metal Blast recently conducted an interview with former AFTER FOREVER frontwoman and current NIGHTWISH touring singer Floor Jansen about her REVAMP project as well as her time with NIGHTWISH. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
Metal Blast: Is singing for NIGHTWISH any different than what you used to do with your other bands or it was more like a familiar ground?
Floor: It was more of the familiar. Even though I was asked and directed a little bit, I do have the freedom to give my own ideas. When you start doing it, you have to give a part of yourself, so I couldn’t done it differently. I can’t just imitate the previous singers. It was wonderful to see that the songs really grew on me. I don’t feel like I’m singing someone else’s music anymore. It really feels natural for me.
Metal Blast: By the way, how was the show and filming you did withNIGHTWISH at Germany’sWacken Open Airfestival at the beginning of the month?
