Marko Hietala comments:”Hi everyone! What a sorry state we, the civilization on planet Earth, are in. Everyone everywhere feels it this time. For a lot of us, this has already become a personal issue in the worst possible ways. For my part, I’m just grateful that my lady got back to me from the other side of the world in time. There’s a trusted hand to hold in this isolation. I was lucky. Patience, courage, strength & love to all. Marko. And here’s one more live video from Z7, Pratteln, Switzerland. This one’s ‘For You’.”

Regarding the goal behind his solo album, Marko Hietala comments, “Well, let’s put it this way: NIGHTWISH is without any doubt my main band, and thanks to income from that direction, I don’t have to be that commercially aware…what I mean is that when I was coming up with the musical thoughts for this solo record, I was able to do simply anything without limits. So if I had a goal, it was to not have any kind of limits, but to prepare an unpredictable, spontaneous, adventurous, ferocious and intimate solo record. And now when I am listening to the final album by myself, I can say with my hand on my heart that I – or rather we – pulled it off…The record is a really diverse musical roller coaster ride that takes eager listeners into a world of strong emotions and deep feelings!”

Hietala’s voice has barely faded away, and he is already honouring his skilful bandmates. “Even if ‘Pyre Of The Black Heart’ is definitely my solo album, I didn’t compose everything on my own. When the songwriting process was really in full swing, I kept sending all the ideas to my long-time collaborators Tuomas Wäinölä [guitar] and Vili Ollila [keyboards], and this ingenious two-some came up with great additions and arrangements, one after another. Drummer Anssi Nykänen – who is simply a wizard behind his set – completed the line-up like no other.”
