Soon after the release of Over the Hills and Far Away , Nightwish met what has been described as one of their hardest points as a band.
According to their music teacher, Plamen Dimov, he and Holopainen have totally different characters, and thus difficulties were expected to arise.
Later, Holopainen confessed that, at that time, he seriously started thinking about breaking Nightwish up. After a gig in Russia, he sent a text message to fellow musician Tony Kakko of metal band Sonata Arctica, telling him that he did not think he had a band any longer, and asking him what plans he had for next year.
He told them he might produce another album, but he'd never perform another show with the band.
The same message was also written on the band's message board. Straight after the last gig, Holopainen went on a week-long hiking trip to Lapland with Tony Kakko.
During the hiking trip, they talked about the band and Holopainen decided he could not break up Nightwish that easily.
To continue with Nightwish, Holopainen decided some changes were in order. Beside choosing Ewo as their new manager, he also asked Vänskä to leave the band.
He would later cite musical differences as another reason for the breakup. In addition to playing bass guitar, Hietala would also perform male vocals.
Holopainen has since said publicly that he and Vänskä still keep in touch, contrary to rumours saying that they have not met since.
However, they are not interested in making another project together. The song was repeatedly played in concerts until vocalist Tarja Turunen was replaced with Anette Olzon , whereupon the band announced that they would never play the song live again.
Century Child was certified gold two hours after its release,  and platinum two weeks afterwards. It set a record on the Finnish album charts as well: Never before had a first place album been so distant from the second place.
The chosen track was " End of All Hope ". It tells the story of the band in Holopainen, Nevalainen and Tapio Wilska's words for two hours.
Vocalist Tarja Turunen got married during the summer of , and there were rumours that the band was about to be dissolved.
These rumors were, at the time, proven to be false, as the band continued to play concerts for another year and released another album.
Tarja's marriage later played a part in her dismissal from the band in the autumn of A new album, Once , was released on June 7, , along with its first single, " Nemo ".
The single topped the charts in Finland  and Hungary,  and reached the charts in six additional countries.
Once utilizes a full orchestra in nine of the eleven songs on the album. Unlike Century Child , Nightwish decided to look for an orchestra outside of Finland this time, choosing the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Once has sold triple platinum in Finland,  platinum in Germany,  and Gold in 6 other countries, it also reached No.
Besides the commercial success, Once was also well received by critics, with many positive reviewers drawing comparisons with Oceanborn.
On top of all this, the production cost of "Once," totaled approximately , euros over 1,, including video production making it Finland's most expensive recording in history.
Though, the band would go on to break this record again later in their career. The success of the album allowed them to perform the Once World Tour , taking them to play in many countries the band had never visited before.
Besides "High Hopes", a remake of " Sleeping Sun " from Oceanborn was included on the album and released as a single. A video for the remake was shot, featuring a medieval battle, and can be found on the German release of the single and as a separate DVD released by Spinefarm.
The four other members of Nightwish had decided that it was best to continue Nightwish without Turunen. After a concert in the Hartwall Areena Helsinki on October 21, , recorded for the live DVD End of an Era released June , they expressed their decision through an open letter which was given to Turunen by Holopainen, and afterwards posted on the band's website.
The main justification given in the letter for Turunen's dismissal was that the band felt that both her husband Marcelo Cabuli an Argentine businessman and commercial interests had changed her attitude towards the band.
Turunen responded to the incident twice, during press conferences in Finland and Germany, saying that her dismissal came entirely as a shock to her, given that she had not been notified before the letter was given to her.
She expressed these feelings through her own open letter, which was published on her personal website,  and through various TV, magazine, and newspaper interviews.
To find a replacement for Turunen as the female vocalist of the band, on March 17, the band allowed vocalists interested for the position to send in demo tapes as an audition for the spot.
In September , the band entered the studio to record their sixth studio album, Dark Passion Play. Holopainen has said in interviews that he did not wish to reveal her identity until new material was available because he did not want fans judging her by nothing more than a picture, or past work.
It was awarded double platinum in Finland the second day after its release  and took the number one position on the charts of Germany,  Finland,  Switzerland,  Hungary  and Croatia  and got in top in other 16 countries, including the United States.
Before the band found the new singer and the album was recorded, Marco sang on all the demo versions. Holopainen also sang on the demo versions of "Bye Bye Beautiful" and "Master Passion Greed" but these songs have never been released.
The third single of the album was " Erämaan viimeinen ", a previously unreleased vocal version of the instrumental "Last of the Wilds".
It was released in Finland only on December 5, The single includes yet another bonus track, "Escapist", which is also included on the Japanese version of Dark Passion Play.
It was released over a month after the release of its music video, shot in late in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. The Dark Passion Play tour turned out to be Nightwish's longest tour yet, lasting from late to September when it ended with a concert in Hartwall Arena — the band's second concert there — with the band Apocalyptica.
The eight live tracks were recorded during the " Dark Passion Play World Tour" in —, and the album also includes one b-side from the " Bye Bye Beautiful " single, one b-side from the " Amaranth " single, a previously unreleased demo version of "Cadence of Her Last Breath", and a bonus-DVD with three music videos as well as a minute documentary called Back in the Day is Now.
In the June edition of the Finnish magazine Soundi , Holopainen stated that he had started work on a new Nightwish album.
In October , rumors about the new album's name were going around with the title Wind Embraced , but lead vocalist Anette Olzon listed the rumors as "not true" and said that the songs for the new album had not yet been completed apart from three songs written before May On February 1, , Olzon stated on her blog that Holopainen had nine songs ready for the new album.
In April , Holopainen revealed on the Nightwish homepage that he had finished writing the songs,  and on June 2, it was announced that he had finished recording the pre-production demo.
The band announced in late that more information on the album's actual content would be released in late January,  but on February 1, the official website bore a statement written by Holopainen that because of the schedule changes he can't yet give away as many details as he would have wanted, but more information will be out after a couple of months.
Announcements continued throughout On February 10, Nightwish announced on their website that the new album title would be Imaginaerum.
They also declared that the band had been preparing a movie based on the album, which would be released in and directed by Stobe Harju, who previously directed the music video for " The Islander ".
On September 2, the group announced on its website that the new single called " Storytime " would be released on Friday, November 11, and on September 9, Nightwish revealed the cover and tracklist.
On January 11, , Nightwish announced on its website that the second single, " The Crow, the Owl and the Dove ", would be released on February On October 1, , Nightwish announced via its Facebook page that they were parting ways with Olzon.
Nightwish used replacement singers from the opening band, Kamelot , and Olzon later expressed her disappointment, saying "I was never asked if it was okay that they used Elize and Alissa in the show [Friday] night [ But I was very ill and this decision wasn't mine.
On January 11, , Olzon announced on her official blog that she was pregnant with her third child, due in spring , which she claimed was a contributing factor to her being dismissed.
She also added that she was against Jansen joining the band in her period of maternity, mainly because of the difference in their vocal styles.
In a interview, Holopainen said the band "emerged stronger" from the line-up changes it went through. In an interview with Metal Hammer in November , Tuomas Holopainen stated that they already had a rehearsal place booked from July to September , but before they began rehearsing the band members would be taking a break from Nightwish for several months.
At that time, the band had already announced that it would contain Nightwish's longest song to date. At the end of November, the band released the live album Showtime, Storytime.
Despite the recording happening when they were only tour members, it is the first Nightwish release to feature Jansen and to have her and Donockley credited as band members.
The album also carries a documentary containing the behind-the-scenes of Jansen's first days in the band and the process of replacing Olzon.
In May , Tuomas updated his official website, stating that he and producer Tero "TeeCee" Kinnunen had been recording 12 demos and possibly three bonus tracks for the new album in Hattula , Finland.
It's still too early to analyze the material more closely, but the album will once again explore all the ends of the spectrum, bringing the very best out of the newcomers' Floor and Troy.
And stealthily the album ended up having a theme running through it. On August 6, the band announced that founding member and drummer Jukka Nevalainen would not be part of the upcoming album due to his debilitating insomnia.
Evolutionary biologist and author Richard Dawkins was announced as a guest star on the album, with Holopainen stating that he had "been so enthusiastic about this kind of literature for the past few months, and will be for the upcoming months, that it's going to come out somehow.
Professor Richard Dawkins not only narrates the introduction to the album's opener, "Shudder Before the Beautiful", but also the album's closer, "The Greatest Show on Earth", which takes its name from his book on evolution.
In its first week, the album sold 18, copies in the US and debuted at 34 on the Billboard , making it Nightwish's third album after Dark Passion Play and Imaginaerum to chart in this category.
In the Czech Republic, the album debuted atop the charts and received gold-status after just two days. The album charted in the top 10 in other countries as well, including Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Austria, and Mexico.
In July , it was announced that Sonata Arctica 's vocalist Tony Kakko would replace Jukka Nevalainen as the band's special guest at the edition of Rock in Rio.
The Tampere and London shows were filmed for a live album release known as Vehicle of Spirit. On August 20, , the band played a special 20th-anniversary show at Himos Areena in Finland.
Holopainen said that the band would continue between the years of and , with another album that would continue the themes explored in Endless Forms Most Beautiful.
On June 9, , the band announced that March 9, , would mark not only the debut of a nine-month world tour titled Decades: World Tour , which had concluded in December that same year, but also the release of a new compilation album, titled Decades.
The tour featured "rarely heard material" and a special set for fans; on the North American leg of the tour, every audience member was offered the Decades album for free.
He stated that the inspiration for the new album came from the completion of the self-titled debut album of Auri , a band he created with Donockley and Johanna Kurkela the previous year.
Recording would start in July , with a planned spring release. The band would "use the [orchestral] instrumentation in a different way than before", with Holopainen stating, "You want to search for some new ways of using it so that it doesn't end up sounding the same as before".
On July 15, , it was announced by the band that Kai Hahto would be permanently taking over for Jukka Nevalainen as the band's drummer.
In a statement, Nevalainen explained that while he was managing his insomnia very well and having few issues, he did not want to 'push his luck' by returning to the band as a full-time member.
He did confirm, however, that he would continue in his role of taking care of band-related business behind the scenes. On October 31, , Floor Jansen confirmed that recording for the new album had been completed.
The new album's cover and tracklist, along with its title, Human. Nightwish announced on March 11, , that they had joined a partnership with an international conservation charity organization named World Land Trust.
With their announcement was a video that promoted the organization, which in turn features the song "Ad Astra" from their ninth album.
They're a great organisation. They work to preserve our planet by buying up areas of land and preserving them. But at the same time, we really do need to save the rainforest or we're facing a climate crisis.
The World Land Trust works with governments to find alternative financial outlets for local people to stop logging and deforestation.
You need to consider the human impact, then the environmental one. Nightwish performs symphonic metal with soaring female operatic vocals.
The band's music is also known to be complex  and layered. The usage of a female vocalist has become a sort of trademark, though less so since the outbreak of new female fronted metal bands in the mids with the popularization of bands such as Evanescence and Within Temptation as well as several gothic metal bands mixing female and male vocals, such as Lacuna Coil , Tristania , Epica and After Forever.
Bassist and vocalist Marco Hietala describes the style of the band's music as "melodic symphonic metal;"  though this is not a view shared by all members of the group,  including band composer Tuomas Holopainen ,  who describes the band as simply symphonic metal.
Critics observed that her vocals became less operatic with the release of Once. While the music of Nightwish is centered around a female lead singer,  the band has also featured some male vocals on their albums ever since their debut release Angels Fall First.
In the beginning, Holopainen mainly wrote about mythological and fantasy themes,  and often used references to "metaphysics and nature".
Songs such as "Wishmaster," "Elvenpath," and "Wanderlust" make fairly clear references to fantasy novels, in this case the Dragonlance series and J.
Tolkien 's The Lord of the Rings. Through the years, the lyrics became more personal. It expresses a lot of myself. Turunen thinks that the lyrics do not anymore deal "with the dreamland we were used to, but with the brutal reality of life.
Imaginaerum tracks has different lyrical themes. For example, the song "Ghost River" themes "a duel between the Devil and Mother Gaia", while "Scaretale" themes "childhood nightmares and monsters".
Although the lyrics of Nightwish generally are serious with dark meanings, they have also produced several less serious songs, including the bonus track "Nightquest", which talks about the band members' the three original members as well as Nevalainen connection as musicians, and the "quest" of Nightwish.
Nightwish's debut album Angels Fall First had one song in the Finnish language, but since then the band has only written songs in English, with the only exceptions being " Kuolema tekee taiteilijan " from the Once album , the single " Erämaan viimeinen " , which is a vocal version of the instrumental "Last of the Wilds", and "Taikatalvi" "Magic Winter" from Imaginaerum Holopainen thought that he was very uncertain about the lyrics of "Erämaan viimeinen", because he is of the opinion that writing in Finnish is rather hard, and has said that "Finnish [could] quickly sound really cheesy.
Tuomas Holopainen, writer of most of the band's lyrics and music, says that he gets most of the inspiration for Nightwish's songs from film music.
Holopainen has also said that film music is the music he listens to for leisure. Nightwish has also been noted as a source of inspiration for other bands.
