Hello my name is Christoph Altmann. I am 15 years old and I would like to tell you something about my favourite band called Nightwish.
At first something about the band members:
The keyboarder Tuomas Holopainen, the front man.
The new singer Anette Olzon (2007) before Tarja Turunen
The guitarist Erno "Emppu" Vuorinen
The bassist Marco Hietala

Now something about the history of this band and the success:

The band a Finnish Symphonic Metal band from Kitee.
The keyboarder Tuomas Holopainen, Tarja Turunen and Vuorinen have created this band in 1996. The international breakthrough came in 1999 because their album Oceanborn was a big success. Between 2001 and 2005 the band had no commercial success although her singer Tarja Turunen had a beautiful voice.The commercial success came in 2007 with their new singer Anette Olzon. The band released the Dark Passion Play album with her. In my opinion it is the best record of Nightwish.

The band brought out 7 albums:
Angels Fall First (1997)
Oceanborn (1998)
Wishmaster (2000)
Over The Hills an Far Away (2001)
Century Child (2002)
Once (2004)
Dark Passion Play (2007)

I think Nightwish is one of the best bands ever, because they have really good live performances with many special effects and they make great song.
For example:
Amaranth, Nemo, Over The Hills an Far Away
