Angels Fall First’ is the 1997 debut album by Finnish symphonic metal group Nightwish, who would go on to become one of those most popular and prolific bands of the genre. Compared to later releases, however, ‘Angels Fall First’ sounds very raw, and at times, slightly disjointed and directionless, lacking the epic bombast that the band would incorporate on future albums. However, there’s still a clear vision here of what the band want to accomplish, and there’s no doubting the writing talents of keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen and guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and the potential they display.

An angelface smiles to me Under a headline of tragedy That smile used to give me warmth Farewell - no words to say beside the cross on your grave and those forever burning candles. Needed elsewhere to remind us of the shortness of our time Tears laid for them Tears of love, tears of fear Bury my dreams, dig up my sorrows Oh, Lord why the angels fall first. Not relieved by thougts of Shangri-La Nor enlightened by lessons of Christ I'll never understand the meaning of the right Ignorance lead me into the light.
