However, the songwriter soon realised that the group's main vocalist, Tarja Turunen, was better suited to a more powerful
style of music - and thus they decided on a major change of direction. Built around dark lyrical themes, the band released
a string of albums in the late '90s and early '00s which were well received in their native country but made little dent elsewhere.
