Nightwish Share The Secret To Success In Music


(Prog) Nightwish have offered advice to young bands trying to get a foothold in the music industry. The group have been instrumental in promoting symphonic metal since they formed in Finland in 1996 - with their most recent album Endless Forms Most Beautiful being favorable received across the world.

And when asked what help he'd offer bands starting out their careers, keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen says having the "fire" and the "passion" to make music is paramount.

He tells The Cut: "Do music for the right reasons. You really need to have the passion and the fire inside of you to either write songs or play - but that needs to be there.

"After that, find a big bunch of trustworthy people who take care of the side of the business that you don't want to dive into. Don't try and control everything."

Singer Floor Jansen reflects: "I would like to have told myself to be patient and to realize what aspects of what I do are my best and to focus on that - and to acknowledge the things I'm not so good at and to let that be done by someone who is." Watch the full video here.
