Welcome back to another installment of the continuing series of mini-documentaries that follow the creative process of the Finnish band Nightwish as they work on album #8. The bands behind the scenes look has been very interesting so far and with Episode 7 they give us a chapter called “Almost There”.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Some cool stuff here and one has to wonder how many more episodes there will be since we are told its “almost there”. Hmmm. I don’t know about that at all but oh well, I’m certainly building up one of our categories as a result too which is never a bad thing right? If you are just now joining us on the website, be sure to click on THIS LINK to get to see all of the preceding episodes presented on a new browser window. Until next time.
Before I get into this one, I should stress what the clips themselves are doing and that is stating that there is NO new Nightwish music from the forthcoming album to be found in them. A little bit of a shame for sure but we are only up to Episode 6 which is entitled “New Hometown” so here we go.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I am still keeping rather quiet on these, this one was rather charming as we watch singer Floor Jansen shopping and adventuring around her new hometown of Finland. I still haven’t picked up any words that I knew here and oh yeah don’t forget to watch these clips from the beginning if you have somehow only just joined us. That can be done on THIS LINK.
Whew. Nightwish is hard at the task and keeping many providers of online journalism busy with a continuing series of video shorts that bring us behind the scenes in the making of their brand-new album. We are up to Episode 5 and this one is entitled “More Campers”. Enjoy.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve been keeping mum about these for the most part, I am really enjoying the latest one since it brings both Floor and Troy into the films as they begin their parts. Hopefully you readers caught the post from a few days ago where we announced the bands 2015 North American Tour and if you didn’t see that summary yet, please click HERE to be up to speed with the rest of us. I am VERY excited about that bit of concert news. Don’t forget to click onto THIS LINK if you’ve missed any of the earlier films. I’ve got them tagged properly for your ease of discovery and I think that there is still some ways to do. Part of me wishes that I thought longer about individual posts as opposed to one but I digress. Until we meet for the next one of these. Adieu.
We are four installments deep with this post about the upcoming Nightwish album and if you’ve been watching these little videos so far, you can see that they are hard at work to give us something extraordinary. The call this one “The Beginning Of The Summer Camp”. Here we go.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: These are probably even better if you actually understand Finnish, but of course we get the sub-titles which prevents us all from being lost. Have you learned any phrases during the course of your enjoying these behind the scenes looks? I must admit that I have not yet added to my own Finnish lexicon of five words. Oh well. Hey if you are behind on these videos remember to click onto THIS LINK to bring the whole bunch so far onto a new browser tab. See you next go round.
Welcome back everyone, it’s nice to see you here once again for this little video series presentation. For those just joining the program, its “The Making Of” the brand-new album by Nightwish and they’ve been giving the world these little peaks into the process. Part Three is called “Inside His Head” and in this we get subtitles which is a good thing since all the talk from bandleader Tuomas is in Finnish. Here we go.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Before I get too ahead of myself, I did want to make sure that everyone checking out these clips was aware that while he is in the first few chapters, drummer Jukka has stepped down as the bands drummer to deal with some health issues. I summed up the whole story in a post that can be found HERE in case this is somehow news to you. Moving along, as I’ve said before I’ll be abstaining from larger commentary on these but have to say that after seeing the first two, really think I need to visit the beautiful country of Finland. I certainly know enough people over there. It’s a goal and if you didn’t see those two clips yet, click onto THIS LINK to pull them all up on a new browser tab. See you at Part Four whenever they go live with it.
