About a year ago, Finnish symphonic metal act Nightwish made the surprise announcement that they had parted ways with vocalist Anette Olzon. Shortly after, Floor Jansen came on board as their touring singer and now the band has revealed that she will remain a permanent fixture in the band. In fact, Nightwish have expanded their official lineup to a six-piece ensemble, also adding touring member Troy Donockley on pipes, whistles and vocals.
Finnish symphonic metal masters Nightwish have been working on a film to complement their 'Imaginaerum' album, which was released to critical acclaim. Along with a new trailer for the movie, Nightwish have just announced that they will be creating Imaginaerum wine to bring the experience to a completely new sense.
As the 2012 Wacken Open Air festival winds down in Germany, the 2013 lineup is already being announced band by band.
