Nightwish To Release “Vehicle Of Spirit” DVD In November

Nightwish have announced that they will be releasing a new Blu-ray/DVD titled “Vehicle Of Spirit” on November 4. You can read more about that in the below press release.


NIGHTWISH will release a live DVD/BLU-RAY package ”Vehicle Of Spirit”
in November 2016
After touring for a year and a half throughout almost every corner of the world and leaving fans of all nationalities breathless, the time has come for NIGHTWISH to immortalize their “Endless Forms Most Beautiful World Tour 2015-2016” on DVD. Therefore, the symphonic metal visionaries are set to release their new live milestone »Vehicle Of Spirit« on November 4th, featuring not only two full concerts, but also plenty of bonus material.
“The title “Vehicle Of Spirit” came from a friend of Troy’s, who after seeing our show a few years ago defined NIGHTWISH as ‘A vehicle of spirit that defies category’. That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title,” states keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen.
Sold out arenas and spectacular shows with never before seen pyro effects, wind machines, video screens and of course NIGHTWISH’s incomparable melodies are the elements that made their latest tour so unique.
Special highlights for the band have been two particular shows though: The one in London, where they not only played their hymns such as “Élan” and the majestic “The Greatest Show On Earth” to more than 12.000 fans, but also welcomed the world famous scientist Richard Dawkins live on stage with them.
Richard Dawkins´ works had a massive impact on the thematical orientation of their latest studio album ”Endless Forms Most Beautiful”. Finland’s Tampere show however was a home run for the band and never before NIGHTWISH had such an immense stage production with them:
“I would say the main part of the DVD are those two shows, both Wembley and Tampere. Wembley is mentioned first due to its recognizability and legendary status. I remember the show being very special, both a goal achieved, and a starting point. The crowd was heartwarming. The presence of Richard Dawkins on stage was mind-blowing. The overall Wembley experience was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill ride!
The show in Ratina Stadion, Tampere, was a home crowd specialty (for 4/6th of the band) with the biggest stage production we’ve ever had. A lovely atmosphere throughout the concert, with many same faces in the front row as there were 15 years ago. Heartfelt.”
When it comes to the final artwork of the DVD, NIGHTWISH decided to walk different paths this time and come up with a little alternative idea, as Tuomas explains:
“We didn`t want to include a traditional band shot for the cover, as on the previous DVD release »Showtime, Storytime«. So we started brainstorming on different options and the idea of a classic silent movie era – Hollywood visuals quickly came up. With those classic slogans the cover has a little tongue-in-cheek-touch to it, but it’s still classy and eye-catching in its simplicity and originality.”

Liv “Sin” Jagrell (Sister Sin) Signs With Despotz Records

Liv “Sin” Jagrell (Sister Sin) has signed a new deal with Despotz Records. She will release her debut solo album through the label next year.

Here’s the official press release:


LIV SIN Signs Record Contract with Swedish Label Despotz Records

Former Sister Sin vocalist LIV SIN is currently in a secret location working on her debut solo album which is being produced by longtime U.D.O. bassist, Fitty Wienhold. The as yet untitled album sees Liv working with two Swedish musicians in Per Bjelovuk on drums and Patrick Ankermark on guitars. The album will see a worldwide release in early 2017 through Swedish label, Despotz Records, with extensive touring expected after the album is released.

Liv says of the signing, “To me, signing with Swedish label Despotz feels great because I know they work a lot both internationally and here in Sweden. I think Despotz will give me the best start for my new band and for a successful future”.

Omer Akay from Despotz adds “Liv Sin’s presence as a strong front woman and her unique voice didn’t go unnoticed here at Despotz, and now it´s finally a dream come true to work with Liv Sin and take her music beyond the masses”.

From the dark beaches of south Sweden, Liv ”Sin” Jagrell emerged as a major force as the vocalist for hard rockers Sister Sin. Throughout their 13 year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of albums and toured the world with high profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Mayhem festival tour, as well as being a part of the Revolver magazine ”Hottest Chicks in Metal” tour. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.

When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to give to her fans. From this, LIV SIN was born.
