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.

Nightwish Unveils Dates/Locations For “Decades” 2018 European Tour

It was just the other day that I posted about the European Tour being mapped out by the band Within Temptation (seen HERE), and while this was not a common practice for me since we are in the USA, when it happens to be a band you really enjoy you make sure to spread the word. That said, I was excited to find out the European plans getting unveiled by the Finnish Metal sensation known as Nightwish. Take a look at the bands statement along with the revealed dates. I’ll close out with a light editorial addition so read on.

The Press Release:
In 1996 Tuomas Holopainen made a three-song demo that eventually lead to his first recording contract with his brand new band NIGHTWISH. Fast forward 20 years, over 2000 concerts and 8 million sold albums later, the band are the biggest female-fronted European metal band that will now celebrate their 20-year career with a 2CD compilation (out on Nuclear Blast worldwide in March 2018) and with a nine-month World Tour with a special setlist full of surprises.
