Nuclear Blast Presents: Nightwish “Harvest” Official Lyric Video

nightwish logo

When we last discussed the Finnish sensation known as Nighwish, it was to reveal their very brief US tour dates (seen HERE) which was done not long after our overview of their debut single and video “Noise” (seen HERE) from their upcoming album “Human Nature”. The song is called “Harvest” and is a lyric video as opposed to a regular one but let’s have a look at it down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Much like my posts about “teaser trailers”, I don’t really feel there is much to say about lyric videos. I will save my song thoughts for a proper single review which I will attend to shortly for good measure. I did find the presented scenes behind the song to be very nice though and think that most of you will enjoy them. Stay tuned for the song narrative, see you then.
