“I am very sensitive for environment,” confesses NIGHTWISH’s new Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. “Don’t put me in the middle of the city in a super-shiny fantastic studio and keep me inspired for weeks. A place like this does. I love nature and I love calm. We can work for hours and then you can relax, truly relax. That I think is super important to keep the vibe going.”
“It’s hard to describe what it’s like – the peace, the stillness, the geology, the biology of the place,”adds Troy Donockley, the man behind NIGHTWISH’s pipes, flutes, and whistles. “The place is just teeming, swirling with life… and there’s a glorious lake. It’s wonderous.”
NIGHTWISH members are in the wilderness of Hattula, Finland working on new song demos with producer Tero “TeeCee” Kinnumen. Previous album trailers include:

Hugely influential, unique, and unrivaled in the heavy metal pantheon, Finland-based symphonic storytellers NIGHTWISH continue to expand the breadth and scope of their artistic vision with each successive release. Their 2011 studio album, Imaginaerum, arrived into the world with a visual counterpart “Imaginaerum – The Movie,” an album-length film directed by Stobe Harju and produced by Solar Films which created a musical fantasy world in the vein of David Lynch, Neil Gaiman, and Cirque du Soleil. A journey between two different dimensions, the film tells an extraordinary tale of the power of imagination & memory and what is most important in life.
The keyboard-driven compositions from band leader & song composer Tuomas Holopainen surpass that of some of the most dynamic film scores and work brilliantly alongside their engaging and electrifying Dutch frontwoman Floor Jansen, who was announced as an official member of the band – along with British multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley – in October of last year. With more than 7 million albums sold worldwide and over 60 Gold and Platinum awards, NIGHTWISH continue to be one of Finland’s most successful rock bands to date.
Soaring emotion, divine melodies, haunting choruses, and grandiose orchestrations are all part of the endearing and enduring magic of NIGHTWISH.
