Their second, “Oceanborn,” in 1998, started to gain them popularity in other countries including the United States, while their third and fourth albums, “Wishborn,” in 2000 and “Century Child,” in 2002, cemented their status in the symphonic metal genre.

After the departure of lead singer Tarja Turunen in 2005, Nightwish recruited Anette Olzon, and released their most successful album yet, “Dark Passion Play”. In 2012, Olzon was replaced by Floor Janson whilst on tour – thanks to Janson’s outstanding performance, she has remained a permanent member of the band ever since.
