(Prog) Nightwish bassist Marco Hietala insists the band isn't a dictatorship. Despite mainman Tuomas Holopainen overseeing much of the band's output and direction, Hietala says he and the other members play an important part in the decision-making process.

Hietala tells Planetmosh: "Every democracy has their president and Tuomas, he's not a dictator or tyrant - everybody has their say.

"Obviously Tuomas writes most of the songs and lyrics but there are four or five songs on the latest album where I got music written, a couple where I got some lines of lyrics written, and then when we get together to rehearse and arrange, everybody has their say.

"When you write songs with keyboards you cannot really tell if something is uncomfortable for a bass player to play, so sometimes things will have to be changed that way, but there's also the fact that we have really free sharing of ideas in the rehearsal room so anybody can come up with something and we'll try it out and see if it works."
