The great symphonic power-metal music band Nightwish is headed to Tel Aviv. The Finnish group, formed in 1996 in the town of Kitee in eastern Finland, will take the stage at Hangar 11 at 8 p.m. on October 6. Nightwish is considered one of the bands responsible for the development and rise in popularity of symphonic metal (i.e. Evanescence) at the end of the 1990s. Although the band has been prominent in their home country since the release of their first single in 1997, it did not achieve worldwide fame until the albums Oceanborn and Wishmaster, which were released in 1998 and 2000 respectively. The band recently announced an upcoming album, Dark Passion Play, to be released on September 28.
