Nightwish – Tribal (live)
Nightwish’s album tour Human. :||: Nature. has ended, but the group is thinking of its fans and sharing at the end of the year a live version of the rhythmic and energetic “Tribal”. This is the opportunity for the Finnish symphonic metal group to keep fans waiting before the release of their 10th studio album, scheduled for 2024. The group clarified that the latter would not be the subject of a tour.
Deicide – Bury The Cross… With Your Christ
The pioneers of American death metal are offering a Christmas treat with “Bury The Cross… With Your Christ”.
