NIGHTWISH - BAND DISCUSS THEMES AND INSPIRATIONS FOR 'ENDLESS FORMS MOST BEAUTIFUL' IN NEW ALBUM TRAILER



NIGHTWISH's forthcoming album 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful' will be the band's first studio album to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen and is set for release on 30th March 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The band have been posting a series of trailers documenting the making of the new album and today sees the release of the 12th episode. Watch as the band explain the themes and inspirations for the new album:



Main man Tuomas Holopainen comments: “There’s a kind of scientific approach to a lot of things on the album. Songs like ‘Shudder Before The Beautiful’, ‘Endless Forms Most Beautiful’, ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’ or ‘Alpenglow’ all somehow reflect the bliss of existence. It’s temporary character. Evolution…Maybe you could even talk about the poetic nature of science. Natural science and its paradigm – seem to represent something cold and boring to a lot of people. Hopefully we can illustrate with this album – that science can even be something profoundly spiritual.”

Stand-in drummer Kai Hahto adds: “It’s a perfect theme to an album. Like, how did we come to be? And when our time here is done, what kind of mark do we leave? It’s a pretty amazing theme.”
