The fifth “making-of” album trailer (“More Campers”) online!
01.10.2014

Hereby the fifth album trailer, check it out here: http://youtu.be/On9V0QBoFW4

 Commented Troy Donockley upon his arrival at the NIGHTWISH Summer Camp in July, the hottest time of summer (Uilleann pipes, low whistles, vocals): “It’s hard to describe, the peace, the stillness, the geology, the biology of the place. And a strange insect on your hand. I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s a wondrous place.”

 Added vocalist Floor Jansen: “I am very sensitive about environment. Don’t put me in the middle of a city and maybe super shiny, fantastic studio and keep me inspired for weeks. But a place like this does. I love nature and I love calm. We can work for hours and then you can relax.”
