Initially Nightwish was famous for following a fantasy-like theme in all their lyrics and music. Their songs were also influence by nature and had traces of metaphysics. This can be proved by a few singles that were solely dedicated to Tolkien and Disney such as “Elvenpath” and “FantasMic”. The band also produced a song in the memory of the massacre at Columbine School called “The Kinslayer”. Most of the songs written and released by Nightwish are not your traditional songs about love, partying and anger. Though the band did release a few love songs and songs about sexuality such as “She is my sin” and “Come cover me”, a majority of their songs were very different, about more serious topics and issues. Such can be supported by their song “10th Man Down” which is about a song from a soldier’s point of view. Another song named “Creek Mary’s Blood” is about Native Americans of the nineteenth century.
