Nightwish: “Decades” Compilation Details Revealed


Long-running symphonic metal masters Nightwish hit the twenty-year mark in their career in 2016, and in 2018 they will release a compilation album honoring their career.Decades will be available as a 2CD jewelcase, 2CD digipak, 3LP box (different colors) and 2CD earbook on March 9th via Nuclear Blast. Here’s what the band previously said on the upcoming release, “July 6th, 1996 was the exact date marked on my family’s summer cabin guestbook. On that date, by a campfire, a decision was made to form a band of three members, playing atmospheric acoustic music led by a female voice. 15 months later, this group would release its debut album, and more than two decades later, it would release a compilation including songs from 8 studio albums and from the very first demo which gave the band its name. The infinite freedom and potential I found from songwriting back in the day took me right back home, offering a place to feel free and meaningful. So the roller coaster ride begun, adventures from all sides of the spectrum ahead, making a pit stop at this place and age from where we`re greeting you now. Looking back, the voyage has been nothing short of spectacular.
