Sit back and fasten your fairytale seatbelts, as of today NIGHTWISH reveal a first glimpse into their new album. The yet-untitled creation will be the first Nightwish studio-record to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. It’s set for a release in spring 2015 via Nuclear Blast.

Enjoy the ride, as Nightwish take you on a trip to where the magic happens: Settled right in the middle of the beautiful wintery landscape of Eno, Finland, band members and sound staff gather round the long table of “the Cabin” to discuss every aspect, relevant for the making of Nightwish album #8. So far the bands’ mastermind, keyboardist and visionary composer Tuomas Holopainen and sound engineer Tero “TeeCee” Kinnunen recorded demo version of 12 songs.

Tuomas Holopainen – solo album went gold in Finland!
05.06.2014
Tuomas Holopainen’s solo album »Music Inspired By The Life And Times Of Scrooge« debuted as # 1 in Finland on the release week and stayed in TOP 5 for several weeks after the release. Now, two months after the release date the album went GOLD in Finland.
Tuomas comments: "This is really unbelievable and a great day for Scrooge. I want to thank everybody for their great support for my "little solo project"."

Recording the album had been a distant dream for Tuomas Holopainen for over 14 years. And it really went out with a bang: Tuomas got Don Rosa himself involved to the album artwork and also to participate for the first promo video.
