NIGHTWISH Release First 'Decades' Trailer





Tuomas Holopainen's 3-track demo earned him his first record deal with his freshly founded band NIGHTWISH back in 1996. 20 years later, with over 2,000 shows played and more than 8 million records sold - NIGHTWISH are the biggest European symphonic metal band. Reason enough for Nuclear Blast to celebrate this huge anniversary by releasing a 2CD compilation titled Decades, on March 9th, 2018.

The band have released their first trailer, in which mastermind Tuomas Holopainen talks about the songs that made the cut for Decades. Watch the clip here and below: https://youtu.be/CeWMrytEH7I



Tuomas comments: "Actually, for me personally, it's not a 'best of' because I think the more correct term would be 'the most essential ones' [...] If a person who has never heard of NIGHTWISH before would like to get an idea of what this band is about and has been about for the past 20 years, he would get the perfect picture on 'Decades'! That was like my philosophy in gathering those tracks."

INGESTED, DEAD WITCHES, CYPERCORE, FORGOTTEN REMAINS and more join already announced headliners DECAPITATED, BLEED FROM WITHIN, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, CYTOTOXIN and more, making up another utterly devastating line up for the festival.

DECAPITATED headline MAMMOTHFEST 2018 and are now joined by an arsenal of stunning other live bands!

Focused brutality at its best, their fourth chapter, THE LEVEL ABOVE HUMAN available via Unique Leader records sees the band tour the world extensively and so it was only right we got them back as main support to DECAPITATED on Saturday 6th October 2018.
