NIGHTWISH

10′TH of MARCH, 2012

ICE HALL, HELSINKI

Symphonic metal quintet Nightwish, the most successful Finnish band abroad at the moment, played a show in front of over 7000 people in Helsinki’s Old Ice Hall. The show was a part of the bands six day Finland tour which was a great hit when all shows were completely sold out. It seems that Nightwish is now having the time of their career although their future was at stake following former vocalist Tarja Turunen’s departure in 2005. Swedish vocalist, Anette Olzon, was chosen to replace Tarja in 2007 the band’s latest two albums DARK PASSION PLAY and IMAGINAERUM have received both critical and commercial success across the globe.

Nightwish – Tuomas Holopainen

November 6th, 2007

Nightwish - Tuomas Holopainen

Written by Simon Lukic
Transcription by Mike ‘Fucking Hostile’ Holmes

One of Metal’s biggest headlines was the “open letter” served to Tarja Turunen by Nightwish band leader Tuomas Holopainen. It not only bought an end to one of the genre’s greatest pairings, it also would cause a great deal of concern amongst Nightwish fans as many felt the band would never be able to find a worthy successor. After going through some 2000 applicants a replacement was found and everyone should now be aware of Anette Olzon – a 36 year old Swede who managed to impress the band the most. While opinions regarding Anette are still divided, the release of DARK PASSION PLAY seems to have reinvigorated the band and the interview I had with Tuomas highlights the fact. I trust you will enjoy our discussion and appreciate Tuomas’ honesty and dedication to his band.

Nightwish´s whole history so far as a successful band, is like a fairytale story only a few of us could ever dream of. The band has sold over 2,5 millions albums worldwide, done several successful tours and overall become one of the most followed bands in the world.

However, almost every fairytale tends to gather some dark clouds above the horizon at some point, I guess that´s what happened to Nightwish as well when they fired their previous frontwoman Tarja Turunen in the end of 2005. After this news reached the public´s ears, the band went through a merciless crossfire that really tested the grounds of the band somewhat heavily. With all the strenght and faith they had in the band, they struggled forward, found Anette Olzon from Katrineholm, Sweden to unite the Nightwish´s troops, making it a stronger and tighter package than ever before. Nightwish is ready to conquer to the whole world again.

I met a good-humored, always friendly and ruminative Tuomas Holopainen and the new, lovely frontwoman of Nightwish, Anette Olzon at Hotel President in Helsinki on May 30th 2007 – and we talked mainly about ´the hot topic of the day´ Anette herself, the band´s forthcoming 6th yet-untitled studio album, and their upcoming world tour that quite surprisingly, starts off in Tel Aviv, Israel on October 6th 2007.
