Band: Nightwish

Home Page:

Nightwish is a pretty straightforward power metal band from Finland. Well, with one exception: Vocalist Tarja Turunen is easily the best operatic vocalist in metal today. With her vocals and some solid songwriting, Nightwish have become one of the more popular bands in metal. On their debut "Angels Fall First", they also utilized clean male vocals, but unfortunately the male vocals weren't very good and only detracted from the overall sound. They wisened up and stuck to using Tarja's beautiful voice exclusively after that release.

After releasing "Century Child", the band took nearly a year off to allow Tarja to return to school and train her voice even more. The band is currently looking for a new singer/front woman.

New fans should start with Oceanborn or Wishmaster and then work their way out from there.
