Finnish metal band Nightwish has released two new stills from their upcoming film Imaginaerum, which is based upon the band’s latest album of the same name. Filmed in Canada and finished in Finland, the film follows the dreams of a dying man. The stills can be seen below. The film is slated to come out in Finland on Nov. 23rd.

Keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen said that the band is, “…seen in two different scenes as a band, playing in the background. That’s something that I really emphasized to the director, ‘Please don’t put the band into the movie,’ because we want to do a believable story and we have no idea how to act. We are not actors so if your give us some lines and we tried to act, it would look goofy. He insisted to put us into the movie because it’s our brainchild, so we’re just playing in there as a band; it’s a good compromise.” [source]
