Good song, though the choice of keyboard tonalities combined with the opening riff make it sound a LOT like Nightwish (Storytime particularly). Annette's voice seems a little fuller here than in Nightwish - maybe it's the mix. I didn't realize it at the time, but Jani is touring the US with Insomnium right now. Saw them last week and he filled in for Markus quite well. Great guitarist and good clean vocals. I really like seeing the basses with the splayed frets. Good tone, too.
That drummer, LMAO. He was so focused as if his internal monologue was repeating 'meat' and 'potatoes' on the 2 and 4. I just couldn't take him seriously, especially contrasted with Annette's joyous singing.

I think it sounds fuller because basically EVERYTHING is harmonized, especially with lower octaves. It's a decent song but I don't personally really enjoy her vocal lines that much. Not bad, just not checkin' the boxes for me.
