The Finnish symphonic metal storytellers from Nightwish are currently working on their upcoming new album.
The band was recently recording the orchestra at the London based Angel Studio's, along with Pip Williams. Floor Jansen commented about this experience:
"This was the first time I witnessed the recording of an orchestra and it was so enchanting! I was stunned by the professionalism of the players, the conductor, the studio engineers and by the amazing arrangements Pip made again. To hear it all come together is amazing, goose bumps all the way through!!!"
The yet-untitled creation will be the first Nightwish studio record to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. Longtime drummer Jukka Nevalainen will sit out on the recording sessions due to health issues; Kai Hahto (Wintersun, Swallow The Sun) will replace him. The album is set for a release in Spring 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
