"Kuolema tekee taiteilijan" is the third single released from the album Once by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish. It was released on November 24, 2004, by Spinefarm Records, together with the platinum edition of Once.[1] The single was never released outside Japan and Finland.

"Kuolema tekee taiteilijan" is Finnish and means "Death Makes an Artist" in English. During the end credits on A Day Before Tomorrow, the orchestral/instrumental version of "Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan" is audible.
