The NIGHTWISH crew recently assembled to make a start on the band’s forthcoming album. The yet-untitled record will be the first NIGHTWISH studio album to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen and is set for release in Spring 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
The band recently revealed a trailer showing the crew preparing for the recording and today sees the release of the second trailer. In today’s clip the band and crew give fans an insight into recording demos of the songs, all of which is done by ‘the lake’:
Tuomas Holopainen commented on recording in the great outdoors:
“This is the third time we’ve opted to demo the songs in the wilderness. It’s proven to be a very effective arrangement.”
Added bass player and vocalist Marco Hietala:
“There’s stuff that sounds excellent already and stuff that clearly needs some work still. We have such a strong belief in the end result that we know if will work like alchemy: Scheiße will turn to gold.”
