NIGHTWISH's new album, "Dark Passion Play", has been certified triple platinum in Finland for sales in excess of 90,000 copies. The CD has sold 20,000 copies in the United States since its October 2, 2007 release.

In an interview with, NIGHTWISH keyboardist and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen broke down why so many people have embraced NIGHTWISH's music: "Our music is very diverse. There's the real heavy stuff, there's a lot of ballads as well, and the hybrid of orchestra with guitars, so it's a little bit for everybody, I guess.

"I think it's the honesty of the music. We've never followed any trends. We've always done things our own way. People have inner feelings when they sense what's real and what's not. Even though we are kind of childish and kind of a naive band, there is a lot of honesty, and that's what people can appreciate."
