    Hey everyone. :wave:

    I know it's been "all quiet on the Western front" around here, but hopefully this good news will kickstart some life back into this place. ;)

    As of yesterday, Tuomas has made a post that could only be considered our first real bit of news regarding the next Nightwish album.

    Thanks to our friends at Tuomas Holopainen México, here is the scoop directly from Tuomas himself.

    Sounds like good news to me!!! :kickass:

    ^Yes, Tuomas did say something of that nature in some interview a while back.

    It's official: Nightwish summer camp has begun! Thanks to Enigma for providing the following information. :)

    Here is a photo of the guys jamming away; according to an interview that Marco recently gave to Soundi magazine in Finland, they are "way ahead of schedule"; already working on 3 songs. Floor recently joined the guys over the weekend, and Troy will be along shortly. Things are moving right along!!!

    What wonderful news after not being here for a while!

    Maybe they will release some studio sound clips to wet our appetite!

    Bah!! I want samples!!!

    I wonder if they don't, is because other bands might copy their riffs?

    Or they just like to keep it a surprise I guess. Sigh....

    I'm like a kid waiting for Xmas again.

    From the looks of the videos, they're going as far back as last winter, so it could be a while until we hear some bits and pieces. According to one of the last updates, Pip is still working on the score, and things are still in the rehearsal/demo stage. So I'm sure we'll get them, it will just take a little while! ;)

    I know it's been quiet around here lately, but here's some good news: the new album will be here in the U.S. on March 31st, and it is called...

    ENDLESS FORMS MOST BEAUTIFUL

    The band's official site offers the following statement regarding the theme of the new album. No tracklisting available just yet, however.

    Last but not least, here is the album cover!

    There is a song of 24 minutes on the album?! well... i expect it to be epic (like ghost love score) but 24 minutes is somewhat way to long for one single peace of music!

    This thread will now be designated as the *SPOILER-FREE* thread for Endless Forms Most Beautiful. This will be the thread where discussions about the album can take place, but please do not post spoilers for those of you who have heard the album in advance, out of respect to those still waiting for their copies and wishing to wait for theirs to arrive before listening to the album. There is now a "spoiler" thread where all those discussion can take place, so please refer to said topic when you want to discuss the album in great length or post spoilers about the songs. Thanks!
