Nightwish Wishmaster on 2LP
Nightwish is a symphonic power metal band from Kitee, Finland, formed in 1996 by songwriter/keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and former vocalist Tarja Turunen. Nightwish is Finland's most successful band with more than seven million albums and singles sold worldwide. Although Nightwish has been prominent in their home country since the release of their first single, "The Carpenter" (1997) and debut full-length Angels Fall First, they did not achieve worldwide fame until the succession of acclaimed albums Oceanborn (1998), Wishmaster (2000) and Century Child (2002).
The right place at the right time. Having spectacularly defined their style with the Oceanborn album, Nightwish now took things one stage further, delivering a record that - in addition to topping the charts in their native Finland - also made some serious inroads overseas. Word on the band was spreading fast and Wishmaster was yet another landmark outing; not only was the material consistently strong, but in "Dead Boy's Poem" it featured once of the best songs of their career to date!
