NIGHTWISH - »Decades« OUT NOW! - 2018-03-09

2018-03-09 - Let's be honest; it doesn't take any overstated words to present this exceptional band to the world out there, for they are the undisputed pioneers of symphonic metal and the icons of a whole genre. Their virtuosity is consummate perfection, their inspiration lived passion! NIGHTWISH truly understand how to captivate and enchant within seconds. Since the beginning of their career which started on a mild summer night in July 1996, they have been regarded as the epitome of the most demanding, compositional music art and innovative sound ventures.

Now it's time to take a look back and review the last 20 years in a musical way. In keeping with their upcoming 2018 world tour, NIGHTWISH release a brilliant best-of work, called »Decades«, TODAY via Nuclear Blast! This record unites the most important songs of the band on two CD's in their original versions. The Suomi sound makers have always been recognised for their exciting journey of discovery and as a tribute to all that, this release presents a phenomenal cross-section of this formidable career through the lens of their grandiose evolution!

Today, the band also releases their fourth trailer, in which mastermind Tuomas Holopainen tells about how the idea of »Decades« was born. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/A6iaR-MDK70


Tuomas commented: "It was already a few years ago that Ewo, our beloved manager, came up with the idea of 'How about after the »Endless Forms...« tour you take a year off as discussed and after that we spend the next year celebrating the 20 years of NIGHTWISH so that you would be playing mainly the older songs?' and we just thought that this is a brilliant idea. Then, at some point, the idea of this compilation together with this tour came along."
