NIGHTWISH update from an unhappy-sounding Tuomas Holopainen

"In the excitement of Yuletide magic I wrote there would be secrets revealed at the end of January. There are big things happening within and around the Nightwish camp but the Big Boys and Bosses just sent me an ultimatum to keep my mouth shut for a couple more months, or I would wake up with a horse's head in my bed.

I truly am very sorry about needing to keep future plans and sights still in secrecy. The purpose is not to annoy anybody or cause a carefully planned hype over the matter. Due to the changes in the schedule things will be revealed later during the spring.

The recordings continue, I'm off to E-Major Studios next weekend to put together all the files for the orchestral and choir sessions in London. I'm in daily contact with Mr. Pip Williams, going over the arrangements and new ideas for the songs. The demos he has sent me sound simply otherworldly! Beautiful, twisted, tribal and cinematic stuff. And with a theme album coming up, the mood changes seem to be more present than ever before.

Yup, it still is the Burton-Gaiman-Dali - amusement park we are about to enter.

More coming up once the mobsters grant me permission."

I don't recall Tuomas ever being happy. So there's no change there.

Last I heard it was gonna be this fall when the new album gets released. So if he's recording right now that still looks like a strong possibility.

Yeah, makes sense that it's part of his persona to act dark and brooding, since Nightwish largely appeals to melodramatic teenage girls.

Interesting observation considering I saw them twice on the last tour and both shows had a good range of people of different ages and a good amount of males in the audience.

Sorry but fake mainstream emo bands put on a dark persona to appeal to teenage girls but not Nightwish. Have you ever heard a Nigthwish song? Because when Thomas writes dark lyrics they are true from the heart. I've loved Nightwish for six years and never once thought of them as a melodramatic band that appeals to teenage girls.

Dude, I've heard like 4 full Nightwish albums, and I even consider myself a fan of the last one.

My claim about Tuomas was mostly a joke, but the statement about melodramatic teenage girls was certainly not. I went to high school with tons of girls who absolutely loved the shit out of Nightwish, constantly going on about how deep they are, and how much they identify with the emotion in their music. And yes, all of them were melodramatic teenage girls.

Wow, that sounds weird as hell. All the Nightwish fans I know up here are either really into power metal or MMORPGs. Often both!
