NIGHTWISH keyboardist/main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen was recently interviewed by Andrew Haug of Triple J's "Full Metal Racket" (based in Australia). Download the 12-minute interview in MP3 format at this location (5 MB).

NIGHTWISH was honored in the "Best-Selling Artist - Scandinavia" category at the World Music Awards on November 4 in Monte Carlo.

The World Music Awards (founded in 1989) is an international awards show that annually honors recording artists based on their worldwide sales figures, which are provided by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).

NIGHTWISH's new album, "Dark Passion Play", was recently certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 30,000 copies. The CD, which has already achieved triple-platinum status in Finland after selling more than 90,000 copies, has shifted 26,000 units in the United States since its October 2, 2007 release.
