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 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 9th, 2018.
