NIGHTWISH: First Trailer For 'Decades' Compilation

NIGHTWISH: First Trailer For 'Decades' Compilation

Tuomas Holopainen's three-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 eight million records sold — NIGHTWISH is 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 9.

"Decades" will be available as a 2CD jewelcase, 2CD digipak, 3LP box (different colors) and 2CD earbook.
