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

Colombian doom-gothic metal 4-piece Charm Designer released their first music video “Never After” on Friday, April 7th, 2017 through Inverse Records’ YouTube channel and the band’s own Facebook page.
The clip for Never After was shot in their hometown by local director Gustavo Carvajal, and it portrays both the concept of a multiple characterization of mortality and Gustavo’s bet on a “fashion film” inspired visual aesthetics and the interplay of light and shade.
Never After is the second single from Charm Designer’s 2016 album “Everlasting”, which was produced and recorded by Waldemar Sorychta (Tiamat, Samael, Moonspell, Lacuna Coil, etc.). Previously and as anticipation for the album, a lyric video for the title track, which featured the artwork and animation of renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, was released as a first single.
Everlasting was first released by Finland’s Inverse Records on CD and also for download and streaming through digital platforms.
