"See me ruined by my own creations"~Tuomas Holopainen, Nightwish
Personal quote: "For good or bad, everything is a matter of perspective"
If someone asks me how I can draw with ballpoint pen, I ask you,
how the hell can people draw with pencils?
There’s a comment by a user on the video that I think sums up perfectly and beautifully the experience of unexpectidely hearing Chester’s voice again:
Can’t believe i’m listening to “new” music from Chester right now…Feels like he never died…
It’s precisely that. It’s the strangest mix of disbelief, bliss, sadness and nostalgy.
To hear his voice, his raw emotion, again, feels unreal, but it is real and that makes it so much better.
It makes me feel like some cycle exists. That people, emotions, hopes and dreams, can still find you again eventually. That some hope can always be found. That’s something I’ve fought so hard to believe in my every day life. And then this song is revealed and feels like the testament to this truth. There is hope.
You’re so powerful, Chester. You’ve always been, and always will be. Thank you man, seriously. I hope you knew how much you helped people, because you seriously did. So much so that your voice from beyond the grave still heals and guides people. Thank you man.
Thank you Mark Morton, for making an album that seems to be amazing, but most of all for giving and granting us the opportunity to feel helped and strong again.
I'm feeling emotional right now so I'm even less coherent than normal
