3 stars A year before releasing "Angels Fall First", they gathered here for the launch of "Demo", which also features the song "Nightwish". A wolf howling under the moon, the cover was chosen. Only three tracks and only three members. You could say that everything began with: "Tuomas Holopainen," "Emppu Vuorinen" and "Tarja Turunen".

"The Forever Moments" as the very "Demo" have only as instruments, the keyboard and an acoustic guitar. The soprano voice "Tarja" with the fingerings acoustic guitar and keyboard arrangements create a good atmosphere for music. The letter somewhat fanciful and sorrowful at the same time is an attractive part. The letters were improved as the album although the band is not the best in art.

"Nightwish" continues the concept of indirect "Demo", the sense of loss indirectly mentioned in "The Forever Moments" here to stay, and death is the inevitable result, the end in itself.

"Etiäinen" ends the "Demo". We must move forward after reflection done in your own handwriting. Voice whispers, acoustic guitar and gentle sound of a keyboard. Thus closes this work, and so begins the band "Nightwish".

In summary, the "Demo" is very brief, showing quality in the compositions, arrangements and giving us an idea of what was to come. Highly recommended.
