_ed_ Posted December 9, 2022 Share Posted December 9, 2022 Hi everyone - just a quick message to introduce myself. My name's Richard, I'm 36 years old and live near the top of the North Island of New Zealand. 🙂 I first became a Nightwish fan almost 20 years ago, when I stumbled across Century Child during my last year of high school. But then the group of friends I hung around with at university for the following few years didn't seem to think that metal was very cool, and I kind of forced myself to like what they were into so that I could fit in. As a consequence of that (and an expensive rental property I was living in at the time in Auckland), I ended up missing Nightwish's only New Zealand show to date in 2013. It's gonna take me a while to forgive myself for that! But since 2014 I've been living with a partner who loves metal (although she's more into stuff like Pantera, Metallica, industrial etc, but she still enjoys the symphonic stuff too), I've finally come back around again. I can't believe how long it took me to realise that people should just listen to whatever sounds good to their ears! But better late than never, I guess. This looks like an awesome community, and I'm happy I found it. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
