Unlike the negative definitions sent in under the word look up of 'Metal
', Nightwish isn't about "someone being tortured and beaten, and the sound of people stomping on small animals."
They combined something unique. Symphonic, classical music and opera combined with parts of power metal.
Okay, so the "Ocean soul" part has been overdone a bit, and so is the sea motif put in almost every song. But Nightwish is still a good band. That's just Tuomas thinks. His thoughts are in a "Sea of Thoughts", and writes them down and turns it into a song.
