Oh LULZ, this brings back memories.
I'm pretty sure my first album I bought with my saved allowence was ORGY's "candyass" or Goo goo dolls. Oh, 12yr old Sweetdeath. XD

I think the first ever album that I bought myself was this:



Most of the other music I got was either recived as b-day gifts or xmas gifts or loaned from the local library....

Yeah, Wishmaster is one of the best album's from Nightwish, and I think I have almost all of them, apart from the latest two (no, I'm not one of those Anette haters, I just haven't had the money or the intrest to buy them yet :P ).

Now, I didin't buy it but the next best album was definately Sonata Arctica - Winterheart's Guild. I usually had one or the other of these playing on the background when I was in my room ;D

And I still have both album's songs on my computers music player as "favorites" ;)

I'll have a look at that. I got Nightwish's End Of An Era live dvd - that's great - I don't think the new singer is up to Tarja's standard so I haven't bought any of the new stuff. I really like Sonata Arctica too - I got Winterheart's Guild and the live dvd.  Good stuff!

It sounded pretty interesting, will have to listen  a bit more...

I alse recomend Celesty. Their apparently not that famous but I love their Vandetta album, it has a bit of old Sonata feel to it... ;D

An example: Celesty - New Sin

On another note, guess who named his Space Marine Chapter Templars of Steel. ;) :P And I'm not so sure about Saxon, but Korpiklaani, Ensiferum and Turisas are awesome And Sabaton too ;D

Nice one - I saw Saxon play Falmouth earlier this year with Wolfsbane supporting.  Brilliant night, I was well chuffed.  As for Wolfsbane, it was good to see that Blaze Bayley has stopped trying to take himself too seriously - the first time I saw Wolfsbane about 20 years ago Blaze was a complete arsehole.

Hope you enjoy the gig!!  :)
