Band Name Origins:

  • 'Nightwish' was the name of one of the band's early songs, which was never released on a full-length album. Tuomas Holopainen, the founding member of the band, thought that it gave a good description of what the music was about, so it became the band's name. Submitted by: Nanotechnology

Although there are no lyrics (apart from screams and crazed laughing) the instrumental music is very good and not at all boring throughout any of the 13 minutes.

"Ghost Love Score" Length: 10:00
Longest song they made. Also, throughout the song they keep genre-switching. Symphonic Metal to New Age to Metal to New Age to Symphonic Metal.
Submitted by: Leila
"The Poet and the Pendulum" Length: 13:53
This was even played in the radio many times when the album came out (even on pop stations and this is a metal song) since Nightwish is a huge band in Finland, where they come from.
