Marco >> biography
"Guardians of the halls of heart
When we from my homeland depart
To challenge the gods of emptiness
May the quest begin!"
"Hietala has fit himself well into the band's concept. Far from simple, with strong dark heavy accents, his voice often gets close to operatic inflexions, making a brilliant duet with Turunen." Mape Ollila
"Marco, I love him a lot. And we all love him a lot. It was very good to have him with us. And it’s working pretty well the work we are doing together. We are enjoying live performances; we are enjoying the music we make". Tarja Turunen
