Nightwish - Begin Recording New Album


Finnish metallers Nightwish have officially started recording the follow-up to 2007's Dark Passion Play. Drummer Jukka Nevalainen has issued the following update on the band's official website:

"After spending an intensive summer camp on Finnish countryside and putting a final touch to the demo, we started recording the drums for our next album. We gathered together yesterday and set up the drums and all the recording devices. Today was mostly spent just perfecting the sounds. Just like with our last album we got some back-up from Mr. Kai Hahto (Swallow The Sun & Wintersun), who is known to be able to conjure godly sounds by tuning the drums. The legendary duet of Mikko Karmila and TeeCee Kinnunen are taking care of the engineering again. Tonight ended with a complete take of the first song, so the recording session has now officially started!"

Excellent! I hope Anette's voice will improve her first attempt with Nightwish. Something gives me the feeling that she will be like Ramón Lage in the Spanish band Avalanch, at the beginning he wasn't accepted by the fans, but now he is loved for all of us., all because he has taken the direction to improve in his voice quality, and Anette has told that her vocal level is also soprano, and with practice she will be better, I hope so, for Nightwish's sake (even when I enjoyed greatly the Dark Passion Play)

And also, I hope more Marco's vocal parts

Hell yes! I can't wait for this new one to come out. I like all of Nightwish's work from Oceanborn to DPP. In my opinion, they have so much more potential with the new singer though.

I agree. Dark Passion Play was just straight-up more interesting for me than their previous albums, and that was their first attempt at writing an album with the new singer so given their incredible songwriting talent we can expect something even better. Like DPP ++

I'm wondering how they're gonna do this time. ''Dark Passion Play'' was a really alluring cd.

I wish I was I excited about Anette as most of you are... Musically the last album was very good, but her vocals left me with a feeling of weakness and lack of power from her part. But either way I'm exited about this, and I hope her voice will improve.

I'm interested to hear it, but I must admit I'm a little saddened because it means there's Nightwish recordings, a couple of world tours and a whole buttload of other promotion to get through before the next Tarot album

Not really thinking about this yet. Will probably be about a year till we get a finished album. Then we will get six months of Tarja lovers complaining how pop it is, while the rest of us enjoy Tuomas' genius.

Never been sure about Tuomas being a genius, but the inevitable message board wankery that will doubtless ensue will be a royal pain in the arse. I'm not either side of the fence, I'm equally irritated by the Tarja-loyalists and the Annette lovers. Plenty of badly spelled, over the top forum posts from both camps over the next 12 months I'm sure.

I'd wish them good luck, but looking back on their previous releases, they don't need for the recording process. I just hope Tuomas put effort into all of the songs on the album this time, because I don't want to have to listen to three mediocre songs after an awesome song before getting to the next awesome song as in - "Poet and the Pendulum" ("Bye bye whatever" Amawhatever, Cadance of whatever), Master Passion Greed". You had the time Tuomas, you'd better deliver your first real masterpiece.

Yeah and that is a sweet-ass album. It's kind of like the weekend - we're now at the point when it's the longest time until another one!

You've got to remember that when DPP was written, there was no singer with the band. This new album will be written knowing Anette's range and ability.

I really like DPP, but I must admit not as much as Century Child or Once. I'm still looking forward to this one though.

The appeal of this band always eluded me. I guess I will never understand how such a boring band can become so popular and draw so much attention.

The same way some of us can't understand how "puking in a microphone" can be appealing to some
