NIGHTWISH Release First ‘Decades’ Trailer


unnamedNIGHT

Tuomas Holopainen‘s 3-track demo earned him his first record deal with his freshly founded band NIGHTWISHback in 1996. 20 years later, with over 2,000 shows played and more than 8 million records sold – NIGHTWISHare the biggest European symphonic metal band. Reason enough for Nuclear Blast to celebrate this huge anniversary by releasing a 2CD compilation titled Decades, on March 9th, 2018.

Today, the band releases their first trailer, in which mastermind Tuomas Holopainen talks about the songs that made the cut for Decades. Watch the clip here:  https://youtu.be/CeWMrytEH7I


Tuomas comments: “Actually, for me personally, it’s not a ‘best of’ because I think the more correct term would be ‘the most essential ones’ […] If a person who has never heard of NIGHTWISH before would like to get an idea of what this band is about and has been about for the past 20 years, he would get the perfect picture on »Decades«! That was like my philosophy in gathering those tracks.”
