Spoiler

14. Somewhere in the Finnish wilderness, Lapland is the only idea coming to mind (I know, it's not very specific)

15. Kinslayer (and not Kingslayer lol)

16. 9+8=17 (unless you consider All The Works... as a single song with multiple themes then 9+1=10)

19. Hartwall Arena Helsinki, October 21(?) 2005.

20. End Of An Era

21. Sleeping Sun

22. Pharao Sails To Orion and Devil and The Deep Dark Ocean

23. Ugh I don't remember! It was in South America but other than that I have no clue.

24. Wacken Open Air Germany, I'd say July 2013

25. Once?

Oh? I wasn't aware of the connection! I suppose this happened around 2007-2008 when they toured together and collaborated?

Yeah I guess so! I think that Tuomas might have been the one who translated some of Indica's lyrics in English, too. I actually saw them on tour together, it might have been my first Nightwish show ever. 🤔
