Nightwish have released a full trailer via Iltalehti.fi for their upcoming film Imaginaerum, the same name as their latest album.

As of yet, no US release date is planned. You can watch the trailer below.

Fans of the band Nightwish got a huge shock earlier this week when it was announced that the band had split with singer Anette Olzon. The band announced that their current touring schedule would NOT be affected as the band had landed a temporary replacement singer: Revamp‘s Floor Jansen (ex-After Forever).

But in order to take full advantage of this voice, you need a band that can back it up. So the question begs, does the self-titled debut release from ReVamp measure up?
