Nightwish reveal album mix video

Nightwish have released another studio video documenting their progress on eighth album Endless Forms Most Beautiful.

Tumoas Holopainen and co last week confirmed the follow-up to 2011’s Imaginaerum would be released on March 30 via Nuclear Blast – and lead single Elan will appear on February 13.

It’s their first with vocalist Floor Jansen, and their first with piper and whistler Troy Donockley as a full-time member of the band. Drummer Jukka Nevalainen was replaced by Kai Hahto in the studio as a result of ongoing health issues.

In the clip below, Holopainen says: “I guess mixing an album could be compared to editing a movie – we have to arrange the clips into a dramatic arc, and find a balance.”

Nightwish’s next world tour kicks off on April 9 in North America, with dates confirmed until February 2016, and more to be confirmed between those shows.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
