Logo - Nightwish

This past Summer one of PiercingMetal’s staunchest advocates attended the Tuska Open Air Festival in Helskinki, Finland. The incredible Nightwish would be the show-stopping closing act of the festival and Samuel offered up his images to the website to entertain their Metal minds. Check them out below and while sharing is caring, these may not be altered or published elsewhere without our direct permission. Enjoy.

I’ve noted in many articles on this site how Nightwish was the band that actually started me down this journalistic path and as result they have remained one of my very favorite live experiences. Seeing these images made me wish that I had been there doing a proper show report with the PiercingMetal DSLR. Samuel made sure to tell me just how good Floor fit into the material citing how she could handle all of the stuff that Tarja used to do with apparent ease. I cannot wait for them to bring the band back over here but I guess it will not be until there is also a new album to support. This festival sure looked interesting and let’s see if I can get myself over there next year if the lineup is loaded with groups we don’t easily see in these parts. “Kitos” again Samuel for the use of these photographs.
