Welcome to the Oceansouls of America (OSA) site! If this is your first visit here, OSA is the North American fan club of the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish. Here you will find all things related to the band, especially points of interest to fans in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. We are just around the corner from our 13-year anniverary, which is possible because of fans like you, and we hope to continue serving the Nightwish fan community for many more years to come! You can now stay even more in touch with the OSA site through our brand-new Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr pages; watch some of our favorite videos through our Official YouTube Channel, or look at some of our best onstage Nightwish photos on our new Flickr page! Hover your mouse over the "OSA Community" option on the menu to see all the various ways to keep up-to-date with OSA!

As we move into the second half of 2016, Endless Forms Most Beautiful is still captivating fans all over the world, as the band continues to tour around the world. Nightwish returned to North America this past winter, and have plans to return with new music sometime in 2018. Until then, OSA will be keeping busy with a new website server and major changes to the overall look and feel of the website. Stay tuned!!!

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 To Nightwish, With Love. Go to our "Storytime" section to learn more about this fan-made documentary from fans all over the world, slated to be aired on Finnish television sometime this summer!

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!

Nightwish themselves are not the only ones with big news to announce! On October 15th, 2015, OSA celebrated our 12- year anniversary! It's hard to believe sometimes that we have been at this for so long, but there are other times where it feels like only yesterday that we started. We have seen many changes in our community and in the world of Nightwish over the past dozen years, but one thing is for sure: it's people like you who keep us going! We strive to be a community built by fans and for fans; and as we reach yet another anniversary, we will continue to make good on this promise to you. So thanks to all of you out there for spreading the word about our small but strong community, and for all the love and support you have shown over the years. To further commemorate this milestone, our Facebook page recently reached 1,000 Likes! All this from word-of-mouth advertisement and the help of fans like you who believe in what we're doing and have supported us at every turn. We couldn't do it without you!!!
