Nuclear Blast Records Unveils Nightwish “Decades” Trailer #1

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.

The Press Release:
AMORPHIS announce N. American tour w/ DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL and OMNIUM GATHERUM
Melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS will return to North America with a co-headlining trek with DARK TRANQUILLITY this September/October. Joining them are Portugal’s premiere gothic-metallic-force MOONSPELL, and Finnish melo-death contingent OMNIUM GATHERUM.

AMORPHIS will be touring in support of their soon to be announced new album, produced and mixed once again by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA). More details to be announced shortly, so stay tuned!

Guitarist Esa Holopainen commented: “We are extremely excited to start the world tour with new album from North America. There’s been lot of requests to hit the states again after our last tour spring 2017. This time we come over with a killer package. Touring with DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL and OMNIUM GATHERUM is almost like having a road trip with best mates around. Every band has a strong fanbase so there will be something for everyone.”

Dimmu Borgir Unveil The Art & Secrets Of Their Upcoming Album – “Eonian”

You might have wondered if we were going to be getting a new album soon after watching the recent “Forces Of Northern Darkness” DVD by the mighty Dimmu Borgir, and well its time to say wonder now more as the first details on this release have been issued. Read the full press release below.



The Press Release:

Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world‘s biggest black metal forge, DIMMU BORGIR, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. Now they finally mark their return with a vicious work of art that can be defined as timeless in the truest sense of the word: Eonian.

The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir.

The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak (GHOST, BEHEMOTH, MAYHEM).

This tenth full-length record will see the light of spring on May the 4th, and it will contain 10 new tracks, produced by the band itself and engineered by Jens Bogren. Emerging from the dark minds of the three songwriters, Eonian follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time:
