REVIEW: Tarja – ‘From Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a Dark Christmas)’

Live Metal

Review by Jeff Maki

I was a fan of the Tarja Turunen-fronted Nightwish but hadn’t followed her since her 2005 departure from the groundbreaking symphonic Finnish band. Her classically trained, operatic voice paved the way for the subgenre. I finally took notice of her solo careeer with her 2016 heavy rock album, “The Shadow Self.” Time will tell, but this album is bound to be her biggest success since her former band.

Between touring for her solo release, Tarja managed to record a “dark Christmas” album while in the Caribbean. The album features 11 classic Christmas songs reworked into beautiful, dark gothic versions, plus a new Tarja original.
