Today is a great day to be a Heavy Metal fan my friends because not only has the mighty Judas Priest released their 18th album with “Firepower”, but the ever-inspiring Nightwish has delivered their greatest songs compilation “Decades” AND offered up a fourth Behind The Scenes trailer about it. As I’ve shared the previous three, it was a guarantee that I would continue the process so let’s look at the next chapter about this album and how it came to be.
The excitement continues to build for the brand new Nightwish album “Decades” and its subsequent tour and with this being the case, the folks at Nuclear Blast Records are continuing to deliver a series of “Behind The Scenes” clips. So far we’ve seen “Origins” and “The Evolution Of Nightwish” – Now it’s time for the third installment in this series that discusses “Song Choices”. Take a look.
As the excitement for the brand new Nightwish album “Decades” and its subsequent touring amps up, the fine folks over at Nuclear Blast Records have begun a series of “Behind The Scenes” clips. The first one was “Origins” and can be examined HERE in case you missed it. Now let’s all enjoy the second clip which is entitled “The Evolution Of Nightwish”. I’ll return at the close with a brief thought.
As the excitement for the brand new Nightwish album “Decades” and its subsequent touring amps up, the fine folks over at Nuclear Blast Records have unleashed the first Official Trailer about the recording. Let’s take a look below and talk some more afterwards.
About The Clip: Tuomas talking about ‘DECADES’ a collection of essential Nightwish tracks.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to lie to you, Nightwish is one of my very favorite bands and as I’ve mentioned time and time again over the years was very instrumental in the beginning of this journalistic passion of mine. Hearing about the process involved in deciding what songs make up this release of “essential tracks” is of great interest to me so I will be sharing the chapters as they come out. You might remember that I shared numerous installments when Nightwish gave us “Behind The Scenes” views about “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” and there were a LOT of those clips. If you didn’t see them and have some time to kill just click HERE for a rewind through time. I don’t have much more to add about this but I am very excited about the compilation and of course the tour which will be making a stop in my Metal Metropolis. I’m going to be there for sure. What did you think of this clip? I’ll be posting more as they get released so stay tuned.
I’m pretty excited about the upcoming double live concert DVD and Blu-ray coming from those Symphonic Black Metal giants in Dimmu Borgir and earlier today, Nuclear Blast Records unveiled the first trailer from the release. Since I love putting trailers up on the website I figured you would enjoy it. The video is below and the full press release follows.
The Press Release:
On April 28th, Norwegian symphonic black metal giants, DIMMU BORGIR, will unleash their highly-anticipated double-DVD Forces Of The Northern Night upon mankind. On this brand new release you can witness two different live shows: The legendary concert in Oslo, showing DIMMU BORGIR on stage with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and a bombastic choir, as well as the entire performance at Wacken Open Air with almost 100 musicians in action. These monumental live rituals mark the beginning of the band’s epic return planned for 2017. Watch the first trailer for Forces Of The Northern Night here and take a look behind the scenes of this ambitious orchestra production on the Nuclear Bast YouTube channel!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to keep my thoughts to myself for the time-being and hold them until I get myself a copy of the album to offer up a review of it. I hope you don’t mind that but you can add your excitement or indifference about this one in the comments below. You know I welcome both sides of the opinion coin. See you next time.
