Nightwish/symphonic metal nerds? This one is for us.

We’ve been wondering a lot about Floor Jansen becoming Nightwish’s permanent singer – she’s boldly stepped into the breach to do replace Anette Olzon after her departure from the Finnish symphonic metal titans and done a brilliant job of it. ¬†Fans seem to appreciate her and Floor’s vocal range is more than up to the task. ¬†Conversely, she has her own band, ReVamp – which has just rescheduled their second album to Autumn 2013 – and might not want to join such a high-profile band on a permanent basis.

Seems that any decision on Floor becoming the Flying Finns front woman is a little premature – keyboardist/band leader/batty visionary Tuomas Holopainen is keen to just take things steady and leave any major decisions on the vacant singer’s position until 2014 at the earliest.

Now that, fellow nerds, is a poster…

Still, whilst we’re waiting for some news – there’s always the movie to look forward to.
