NIGHTWISH Issues Seventh In-Studio Video

Wednesday, 12th November 2014

Finnish symphonic metal masters NIGHTWISH have released the seventh in a series of in-studio videos documenting the creation of their new album. The album is due in early 2015 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Commented keyboard player and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen: “We are actually ahead of our schedule. Incredibly, Floor [Jansen] has sung about two songs a day. Marco [Hietala] cut the final bass parts in one and a half days and Emppu [Vuorinen] did the rhythm guitars in a week. I think it was because everything was so well-rehearsed this time. We’ve tried to work more like a band.”

Added Jansen: “Tuomas challenged me, using everything I have to offer. High, low, soft, whatever, but definitely lower stuff and very soft and intimate things. Something that more by coincidence was something that I kind of missed doing. Something I haven’t explored much and Tuomas wrote parts where I have to use this completely, where I have to go into it entirely. I’m very happy with what came out there.”
