Opinions on the new Nightwish album

NIGHTWISH keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen recently spoke to Get Ready To ROCK! about the songwriting and recording process for the group's new album, "Once". Asked why they chose to record the orchestral parts for the album in London using the London Session Orchestra, Tuomas said, "Well the simple reason is that we really wanted to have the best, you know. It sounds kinda corny, but we wanted to have the best no matter the costs, and our record engineer Mikko Karmila, he had some connections with Pip Williams who is doing the arrangements and he recommended him to us. We contacted him and he was very interested in us and then he booked the orchestra for us. To be honest, the whole thing, the orchestra, it costs like twice as much as the whole previous album altogether. But it doesn't matter because the result is so awesome. So I'm very proud to be working with them."

Jokinen has directed music videos for such huge artists as CELINE DION, EMINEM and SHANIA TWAIN and is currently in Rome working as an assistant director on Renny Harlin's new film, "Exorcist: The Beginning".

The budget for the new NIGHTWISH video for the track "Nemo" will be biggest so far in NIGHTWISH's history. The storyboard of the video, by Tuomas Holopainen and Tero Kinnunen, is ready but Jokinen is said to have "permission" to change the story if necessary. "This is a very sad and heavy, ballad-like song," said NIGHTWISH manager Ewo Rytkönen. " video has a thin storyline which tells not so much of love but more like despair and hope."
