Symphonic-metal superstars Nightwish soar from their native Finland to the Congress Theater on unflappable wings of worldwide success, immersing fans in dense operatic soundscapes, skull-pounding riffs, and hypnotic gothic anthems. Heroes of Finland's fabled hard-music scene, where breakfast is always eaten off an anvil, the band pile-drives the imagination with multiplatinum-selling explorations of otherworldly arias that haunt dreams and fill the devil's iPod. In support of its latest album, Imaginaerum, the flocculent band of shredders envelops chanteuse Anette Olzon’s English crooning in black and purple melodies that pierce the ears.
Opening act Kamelot preps audiences for a night of melodic power metal with over-the-top rock ballads. Thomas Youngblood’s intricate guitar work mingles with Roy Khan’s operatic vocals as the group shreds through tracks from its 2010 release, Poetry for the Poisoned—praised by AllMusic for "taking heavy metal into the majestic and wide-open spaces of classical music"—and its upcoming album, Silverthorn, scheduled for release in late October.
