Nightwish - New Album Update


Nightwish continue working on their new album which will feature the new members, singer Floor Jansen and Troy Donockley (uilleann pipes, low whistles, vocals). The band's mastermind Tuomas Holopainen recently posted an update about the progress of the new Nightwish album. So far, there are 12 new songs and some demo recordings. Their plan is to have the album ready in January next year.

Here is the update by Tuomas: "Demo update: A big hello from Hattula, Finland. Tero ("TeeCee" Kinnunen) and I have been here for the past 2,5 weeks recording a demo for the new Nightwish songs.

"It has come together beautifully and we have a total of 12 songs to work with. We are all very eager to finally get together and start the rehearsals in July. If everything goes as scheduled, we should have the ready album in our hands by the end of January 2015.

"It's still too early to analyze the material more closely, but the album will once again explore all the ends of the spectrum, bringing the very best out of the newcomers Floor and Troy. And stealthily the album ended up having a theme running through it. Excited beyond words now! Best wishes to you all."

Tuomas Holopainen recently released his first solo album The Life And Times Of Scrooge. Apart from that, he also wrote the music for "Lohtu" (with lyrics by Tuomas and Simo Jurek Reunamäki), created to help raise funds for the Finnish Live Aid 2017 project to build a new Children's Hospital.

I hope Floor will sing most songs in operatic style. Not in love with her non-classical vocals timbre to be honest.

Floor is the best female vocalist and Nightwish the best symphonic band. Expectations are going to be VERY high. It is the metal dream team. The bar has been raised with Epica, Xandria, Delain and DiM new albums.

Usually I'd agree, but ever since they first put Floor on as a tour replacement I've been waiting for this news so I'm glad to see it finally confirmed! Also, with how bands market these days, I'm sure we'll get at least a couple trailers and songs by the end of the year anyway.

I hope she will use all her vocal abilities (even the growling ones ), and will be great to hear her voice along with the Marko's one making duet in some songs

It's impossible to tell anything from trailers. But yes, I suppose you're right about this instance because of the lineup change

I would have agreed if you had used past tense when you mentioned Nightwish... the potential is huge though, I give you that
...but also are the chances for a big let down
