The band Nightwish was founded by the keyboard player Tuomas Holopainen in a small Finish town Kitee. He dreamt to create a band that would play the songs that close in their style to the songs are usually sung sitting by the fire. The problem was that classical opera vocal of the singer Tarja Turunen was too powerful for acoustic accompaniment. Eventually they foun the following solution – substitute acoustic with electro and play power-metal. Nightwish recorded demo version and forwarded it to studios. At the beginning 1997 their bands was expanded by the drummer Jukka Nevalainen. The band signed the contract for two albums with the label Spinefarm Records. The first CD Angels Fall First was released in the same year. Despite all critic reviews Nightwish were friendly accepted at homeland. The band wanted to have a album promo tour but it was hard due to Turunen’s studies. Moreover the drummer Nevalainen and guitarist Emppu Vuorinen were in the army at that moment. But this did not prevent Spinefarm from Nightwish potential evaluation and prolong the contract for one more album.
