Some other exciting news: a new Nightwish documentary is in the works, courtesy of YLE television in Finland, which will be made BY Nightwish fans, FOR Nightwish fans! OSA is among the handful of several fan clubs asked to participate in this special project, which will be called Fellow Imagineers.

We all know that Nightwish are beloved in their home country of FInland, but now there is also a museum in their hometown of Kitee to commemorate their storied past; where you can see all sorts of items pertaining to Nightwish history! The museum was created by none other than Tuomas' mother, and is now open to the public. So if you have ever considered making a pilgrimage to Finland, now is as good a time as any!
