In all the Marko Hietala news earlier in the year about his retirement, I tripped over a bit of info that I missed previously. He released a solo album last year.

This song is "Stones" by Marko Hietala from his January 2020 solo album Mustan Sydämen Rovio (Pyre of the Black Heart), though this song was released as a single ahead of the album.


  1. I forgot to mention that Marko Hietala has been the bassist and lead male singer for Nightwish for the past 20 years or so.

    1. And it seems I may have been misinformed about the date of the album. Mustan Sydämen Rovio is listed as 2019 while Pyre of the Black Heart is listed as 2020.

      It may be that he released an English-language version of the album. More research on my part is required.
