Good thing today was a slow week, or else I might have been in some trouble. I’m still working on that end of the year list goodstuff, and last night was Krampusnacht here in Pittsburgh, so I’ve been a little busy.

New Releases

Nightwish, Decades: Live In Buenos Aires (Nuclear Blast)

Live album. Kitee, Finland. Symphonic metal. Recorded live in Buenos Aires, Argentina during their 2018 Decades world tour, a tour notable for including songs not played live by the band in many years. I caught the show in Pittsburgh and it was amazing. Only complaint was that there was no opener, so even with a full Nightwish set it felt like a pretty short show.
Live videos: “Slaying the Dreamer” “Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean
