Swanheart69 (Nightwish_fans) =)

Yesterday I had the chance to walk into the studio for the first time and see the set-up, props and dresses, and meet the actors. I was blown away by everything I saw, from the dedication of the people working there to the otherworldly atmosphere of the different stages. I had my make-up tests and dress fittings done, and truly enjoyed seeing myself as a gray and wrinkled 50-year-old. Ha!
4 years in the making, and finally Imaginaerum is coming alive in a most beautiful way. I can't help feeling completely awestruck and grateful for the chance of doing something that was nothing but an insane (but sincere) idea a few years ago.

The Seer of Hundreds of Seas

A newborn poetess
on a fantasy ship
on the waves of the underworld
What is this silence
which vanishes to the blue?
Its a peace of the homeless
only for the time of a falling star
Beautiful, calm

Ill choose one sea
and a strange boat,
which will row me away
The island is waiting
for the widow of life,
the seer of hundreds of seas

I get drunk from the magic potion of sea
and become its child
Only miracles,
loneliness, believing faces,
theme parks of first dreams,
sides of spruces, magic winters
For the time of a beautiful song
pain drowns

Ill choose one...

The bondless chokes
to the bowl of beauty,
to the frozen world,
to the absence of love
I walked under the waves
and was able to drown for good
my songs sung by the others

I chose one sea
and a strange boat,
which rowed me away
The island loves the widow of life,
the seer of hundreds of seas

Nightwish at Angel Studios, London 14. - 20.2.2011

, 20 2011 . 15:59 +
Swanheart69 (Nightwish_fans) We arrived at Angel Studios in Islington, London in the evening of Valentine´s Day and had a most friendly welcome from studio engineers Steve Price and Mat Bartram. They`d already set up everything for next day`s recordings, which would include 3 three-hour sessions with a 53-piece orchestra, most of the players being familiar faces from the Once and Dark Passion Play - sessions. Pip (Williams, the orchestral arranger) joined us at the hotel and we were all excited and ready for a week of long days and for witnessing some superb musicianship.

A heartwarming feeling of reunion and nostalgia filled the air when we met the session musicians on Tuesday morning. We started off with Goat`s Liver (working titleprobably), followed by a couple of more epic pieces and all the rest that required a large orchestra. The musicianship of these people never ceases to amaze me. They`ve never heard the songs before, they haven`t had any rehearsals, and still they nail all the songs, even those in the hardest imaginable key, after just one or two run-throughs. Their prima vista - playing is something out of a science fiction story Respect.

Mr. Thomas Bowes did a fantastic job as our orchestra leader, Mr. James Shearman was a most superb conductor, and once again, Pip topped himself with the arrangements. We had put much more effort and thought into them than on the previous two albums, too.

On Wednesday we continued with the orchestral recordings, last of the day`s sessions being with a 20-piece string / harp - section. Some new working titles were also born, such as The Birdie Song, Teriyaki and Haunted Mansion Ride.

Thursday was the day for percussion and ethnic drums. This time we decided to record all the rhythmic instruments separately from the orchestra to make it easier for the mixing process. Because some of the sounds the percussionists came up with would literally blow your eardrums off.

The highlight of the day was when we let loose Mr. Paul Clarvis & Mr. Stephen Henderson with their ethnic percussion arsenal. Paul`s 350-year-old taiko-drum really did the trick for me, as did the 5-foot hammer and a dustbin. We put all this into a one 3-minute instrumental, and the result is breathtaking and madly passionate.

Friday was booked for choirs. Again that sensation of nostalgia when The Metro Voices entered the building. We had 13 titles to sing and they did it in less than seven hours, prima vista. Utterly gorgeous stuff!

A childrens` choir is something we haven`t tried on a Nightwish album before and its turn was on Saturday morning. The Young Musicians London, led by the wonderful Mary Poppins - like Lynda Richardson were simply heartbreaking. These kids have immense talent, they are future superstar musicians and we are proud to have them on our album. Their sound was beautiful, innocent and in parts very, very scary. And that`s exactly what we were after.

During the evening we had two more guest musicians, Mr. Dermot Crehan (of The Lord Of The Rings - fame) with his hardanger fiddle and Mr. Dirk Campbell with his zurna. Both performances were stunning and added a nice little ancient touch to two of the songs.

Our most humble thanks to all the session musicians, the Angel Studios staff, Pip, James, Thomas, Lynda, Dick the music copyist and Jenny the choir mistress. It was a huge honor to work with you all and to have such talent and spirit captured on Imaginarium!

We miss you all dearly already and try to be faster with the next album.

Tuomas, Hilton Islington 20.2.2011

ONCE UPON A NIGHTWISH BOOK - !

ONCE UPON A NIGHTWISH BOOK



Meet Nightwish - the "shitty band with shitty equipment and no commercial potential" from Kitee, Finland, that turned out to be a Platinum-selling, trend-setting international musical phenomenon. This is their story, as told by Tuomas, Tarja, Emppu, Jukka, Sami, and Marco themselves; a tale of a Disney dreamer and a drama queen; of frowning Finns, exhibitionist roadies, eccentric producers, cursed bassists, faith healers, death threats, behind-the-scenes battles, managerial mayhem, fame and fortune, loss and lament - and music that captured the hearts and minds of the world.
Mape Ollila is a long-time music editor and a Metal fan who has followed the career of Nightwish from the beginning and travelled with the band all over the world. Over four years in the making, Once Upon A Nightwish lovingly but revealingly chronicles the triumphs and tragedies of the first nine years of this unique band, their on-the-road antics as well as their silent, personal musings - and the true reasons behind Tarja's departure.
"The story of Nightwish is full of high drama, and Mape Ollila certainly makes the most of it". (Jarkko Jokelainen, Helsingin Sanomat)
"Extensive, professional, colourful, and brimming with detail, (...) the book perfectly covers the career of this magnificent band." (Jussi Mäntysaari, Rumba)
