2x Blu-Ray Pack!

With every year that we move further away from our childhood, we lose more of the fascination for the world and forget our initial sense of beauty. The world grows duller, gets swept by everyday routine and a work-sleep-eat-repeat-rhythm – but every few decades, a bunch of musicians are able to break down these grey walls of concrete. And those who've seen Nightwish live since their inception in 1996, know that they are the ones to shine a little light with magic, intensity and melancholy into the corners of the one's mind that seemed long lost and forgotten.

After exactly twenty years of band history, the Suomi Symphonics around visionary and keyboardmaster Tuomas Holopainen have reached their best shape to date and this current energy is unleashed in the sextet's new live release 'Vehicle Of Spirit.' This live pack does not only contain the two most special shows of their last world tour, but leads through the entire career of Nightwish with its diverse setlists and hand-picked bonus material.

After eight genre-defining studio releases, Nightwish are among the most successful metal bands of our time and the multinational act surely doesn't have to prove anything to anyone anymore. However, they did. It was the first tour with Floor Jansen on vocals and Troy Donockley on the pipes as permanent members of the line-up and together with Wintersun's Kai Hahto on drums, filling in for founding member Jukka Nevalainen after his sudden illness. But the Finnish-Dutch-British-combo already seems like a well-established team, united for decades. The line-up disagreements lay buried in the past and the dark moments are dusty and forgotten, so let's celebrate the present day and the beauty of reality – but not without little tricks in their sleeve:

Intense pyro technics, raging wind effects and hypnotic video screens transform Nightwish's shows into an incomparable force of Nature. But even though their production is at the biggest level of the band's history, they never blindly rely on massive show effects or neglect the initial spirit of a live performance – eventually they still turn out to be the enthusiastic and fragile music lovers from Kitee. Looking at Tuomas Holopainen behind his keyboard arsenal, you still see the shy boy with his beloved biology book shimmering through.

On both shows, the band delivers a setlist that will leave their loyal fans breathless – in London, they fly from the epic "Ghost Love Score" to "The Poet And The Pendulum" and the reborn version of "Stargazers," while Tampere cheers over Floor's unique performance of "Sleeping Sun" and reaches its bombastic ending with "The Greatest Show On Earth." After three hours of colourful live wizardry, the spectator's life will surely be and stay a little brighter.

The bonus material consists of several additional live clips from different shows and a short interview with the biologist Richard Dawkins, and in the end, 'Vehicle Of Spirit' raises a monument for the band years 2015 and 2016. A monument for symphonic metal, for the sake of science and evolution - and the boy with the biology book.
