NIGHTWISH – Release Second “Decades” Trailer

Nightwish - Decades

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 will release a brilliant best-of work, called “Decades”, on March 9th via Nuclear Blast, which 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 releases their second trailer, in which mastermind Tuomas Holopainen talks about the band’s musical evolution. Watch it now:

Tuomas commented: “I can see the evolution of the music. It’s a wonderful thing, because it doesn‘t matter which album or song you take – you can immediately recognize that it’s NIGHTWISH. There’s always something new and something familiar, no album is repetitive. And that’s what I’m proud of the most.”
