Most everyone into the European metal scene knows who Nightwish is. They blend a rich, atmospheric, keyboard driven metal style with the smooth operatic vocals of Tarja Turennen. When I say keyboards though I dont mean super speedy fast soloing like Sonata Arctica or Children of Bodom instead keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen plays with a more "soundtrack" feel much like movie scores. Lately though on their newest cd Century Child Tarja has begun employing more "normal" type singing instead of her usual operatic flare which I personally enjoy alot but, if you want to know more about Century Child check out the review done earlier in the year.
