A LITTLE ABOUT NIGHTWISH

Nightwish is a Finnish metal band performing songs primarily in English. It was founded by Tuomas Holopainen in 1996 in the city of Kitee. The early work of Nightwish was distinguished by a combination of the female opera vocals of the former vocalist Tarja Turunen, a keyboard and symphonic arrangement and a heavy guitar base of power metal.

Rock of the 70s (part 2)

In the second half of the 70s, all young people were passionate about punk. Punks did not allow access to the stage, it was impossible to perform if you do not swear on the stage and know how to master the instrument. Therefore, in the second half of the 70s, heavy metal did not gain much popularity, and it flourished only in the first half of the 80s; all young people were swept by the heavy metal movement.

The band “Iron Maiden”, one of the giants of heavy metal, it was she who made heavy metal a popular movement among young people. The group was formed in 1977 in the UK. Along with some other bands, “Iron Maiden” was the so-called “new wave of English heavy metal.” Taking the sound of such groups of the early 70s as “Ice Zeppelin” and “Black Sabbet” as the model, “Iron Maiden” in a short time found its musical style, which, in turn, became a guide for other groups.
