Finland-based symphonic metal storytellers NIGHTWISH have just released the fourth “Making Of” trailer for their as-yet-untitled eighth studio album, to be released via Nuclear Blast, featuring new Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. Watch Episode 4, “The Beginning of the Summer Camp,” on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel, below:
“You have to remember that the last time we played together was about 11 months ago,” commented longtime drummer Jukka Nevalainen – who is sitting out on the recording sessions due to health issues – about the band’s first rehearsal. (Kai Hahto [WINTERSUN, SWALLOW THE SUN, TREES OF ETERNITY] is replacing him.) “It’s been quite a while, so all things considered out, initial stabs were pretty okay.”
“You start to get into the songs when you rehearse them,” adds NIGHTWISH guitarist Emppu Vuorinen. “We played a heavier tune, and it did get me moshing a bit. I don’t know if it has something to do with age – but the need to show off has diminished even more. It’s more like you want to do justice to the song and not strut your stuff.”
NIGHTWISH members are in the wilderness of Hattula, Finland working on new song demos with producer Tero “TeeCee” Kinnumen. Previous album trailers include:
