Nightwish's "Expensive" Dark Passion

Posted by MY on 18/06/07

According to the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, Nightwish's upcoming "Dark Passion Play" CD could very well turn out to be the most expensive album ever produced in Finland.

"The final cost of the album was around 500,000 euros [approximately $670,000]," stated band leader Tuomas Holopainen. "We didn't make any compromises that were money-related. Nothing was held back so there is nothing we could've done better."

"The videos cost a total of 270,000 euros [approximately $362,000]," Tuomas said. "We saved time and money by doing two videos in one session."

The total amount invested into "Dark Passion Play" so far is almost 800,000 euros [$1.072 million] but it doesn't concern Tuomas. "I am not scared," he said. "We have done the best we could. There was absolutely nothing we could've done better so it has to be enough."
