NIGHTWISH – »Endless Forms Most Beautiful« - 2015-03-27

2015-03-27 - Today is the release of the new studio album »Endless Forms Most Beautiful« from Finland-based symphonic metal masters NIGHTWISH.

The worldwide media feedback is overwhelming; more than 20 cover stories praised this epic masterpiece, which caused enthusiastic reactions:

„The album is the most metal record they have done in a decade, and Floor has no trouble cementing her place in the band.”
METAL HAMMER (UK), Tom Dare,

“Excellent music cocktail! That’s NIGHTWISH like you wish – heavy with a taste of the »Once« album, bombastic, but more metal, this is true NIGHTWISH, a soundtrack of themselves!”
SPARK (CZ), David Havlena

“The combination NIGHTWISH & Floor – its magic. With this new unbelievable, bombastic, dark, orchestral record, the band completely fulfills my high expectations. An album that every NIGHTWISH-fan will cherish!”
AARDSCHOK (NL), Anita Boel

„This album sounds like the ceremony of the opposites for NIGHTWISH, it’s like their entire carrier is concentrated in one album, it’s like I have eaten too much of my favorite dish.“
ROCK HARD (IT), Emanuele Biani

“An amazing surprise with new blood and on the other side beloved elements as orchestral grandness, folky storytelling catchiness and – GREAT! – more heaviness then before!”
ROCK TRIBUNE (BE), Vera Matthijssens

"Maybe the heaviest album from Nightwish: guitars are back high in the mix but the evolution shown on "Imaginaerum" hasn't been forgotten. Bombastic, epic and catchy, this album contains all the elements of Nightwish universe in 11 tracks. Including the most ambitious piece of the band's history: "The Greatest Show On Earth".
ROCK HARD (F), Guillaume Fleury

“The album sounds extraordinary, and definitely like anything Nightwish ever done before. Floor's voice fits perfectly to the mood of very expanded compositions, and what is one of the strongest virtue of the album - the lyrics really make us THINK. A great step to start a New Chapter in Nightwish's musical journey." –
METAL HAMMER (PL), Paulina Magdalena Mazur

»Endless Forms Most Beautiful« will be the first NIGHTWISH studio album to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. Longtime drummer Jukka Nevalainen wasn’t able to take part in the recording sessions due to health issues but Kai Hahto (WINTERSUN) kindly stepped in and looked after the drumming duties for him.

NIGHTWISH also revealed the famed evolutionary biologist and writer Professor Richard Dawkins as a guest on this eighth studio album. The detailed cover-artwork was created by longtime collaborator Toxic Angel.
