No other voice and artist influenced and basically created the female fronted symphonic metal genre more than Tarja Turunen. A pioneer in Goth-, Opera and Symphonic Metal, the classically trained Finn rose to fame with the metal outfit Nightwish, whose face and voice she was for 9 years. Releasing two very successful solo albums (2007 and 2010) afterwards, awarded gold and Platinum in many countries, Tarja Turunen toured the world with her new band, including Wacken Open Air.
The last roadtrip ended in South America, where Tarja filmed and recorded ACT I. The main content was filmed and recorded this March in Rosario, Argentina, in a beautiful theatre setting. The video-products include plenty of extras – video and photo material. Besides the Pledge products, a 2CD is available in regular retail just as well as a 2DVD and Blu-Ray version.
ACT I delivers the most intense, the most personal and most intimate Tarja performances and footage so far. The artist herself admits, she “was many times ready to burst into tears.”" With the elaborate packaging, tracklisting and its extras, ACT I provides the full-fledged bill of fare to either Tarja fan. Two brand new Tarja songs will be featured on the album, one of them is the first single out of ACT I, “Into The Sun”, which can already be purchased digitally. The remaining tracklisting consists of Tarja’s greatest solo tracks, many Nightwish classics as well as some cover versions, such as “Phantom of the Opera” or marvellous Gary Moore’s “Over The Hills and Far Away” – or to make it short: a unique blend of music selection. Impatient fans can have a first glance at ACT I right here
ACT I, as the title already suggests, is the vanguard in a sequence of live products. A successor live product is planned at a yet to be determined point of time.
While releasing ACT I, Tarja is already working on her next solo studio album.
