    Jukka forced to take a break

    And this day has come. I'm sad for Jukka's departure because he was such a strong presence on stage, though Kai is a hell of a drummer and I think we'll have an incredible sound on the next album. Good luck for both of them!

    Nuevo Álbum 2020?

    ST/ST = ShowTime, StoryTime Coincido totalmente. Estaré atento a todas las actualizaciones, pero sin generarme expectativas.

    Nuevo Álbum 2020?

    No es cuestión de expectativas altas o bajas, sino de no tener ninguna expectativa, sin más. Cada uno de nosotros tenemos una idea en la cabeza de lo que nos gustaría escuchar en el próximo disco y, con toda seguridad, serán ideas distintas dependiendo de lo que más nos guste a cada uno. Pero los que van a hacer el disco son Tuomas y compañía y harán lo que les apetezca, sin más. Yo siempre escucho un disco nuevo con la mente en blanco, sin prejuicios porque, salvo que mi mente y la del autor coincidan (algo bastante raro) acabaré llevándome un chasco si no me dan lo que epero. Supongo que será por eso por lo que EFMB no me decepcionó en absoluto, de hecho, es uno de los discos que más me gustan de la banda.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    @Magnus Great observation! Seems obvious now you point it out. Adding to this previous post... My initial reaction to Nightwish: sun in my eyes and ringing in my ears from inspecting and tracking every gesture and sound Floor made. Even so there were just enough brain cells left over to: a) partially continue breathing; and b) notice she was backed by great band that was rocking the hell out of it. Now there are no ringers. It's a full strength lineup of accomplished, committed musicians with great chemistry. And Floor is teasing her own excitement! So there must be something to it ( ...right? )

    Nuevo Álbum 2020?

    ST??? Me siento igual, tal vez la clave es ir con la espectativa baja. Si supiera como dominar la espectativa, claro, porque soy medio inestable en este aspecto, veo en instagram que @Teeceerrmb sube una foto intrascendente de un arbol random del summer camp y estoy cerca de tatuarmela en la frente.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    With Kai becoming a permanent member of the band, I also think he'll leave a bigger mark on the next album. On Endless Forms Most Beautiful it felt like he purposely kept the drumming true to Jukka's style, in order to leave the door open just in case.

    I think bittersweet is the best way to describe this feeling. I am equally as sad about Jukka officially stepping down, as expected as it was, as I am thrilled about Kai joining the band full-time. He's the perfect replacement. Big thank you to Jukka for all his amazing work in the band through the years!

    Jukka forced to take a break

    We kind of knew this day was coming. I'm happy he's feeling better, that's what's most important. He'll still always be part of the Nightwish family one way or another. Very grateful for his wonderful contributions to the band. Kai is an excellent replacement though, so I am very glad to have him announced as a permanent member of the band.

    Well, this was expected. I think it's surprising that it took this long to make Kai a member, it's been one album and two long world tours already. Or maybe Jukka really made the decision just know when the preparations for the new album are starting. I personally still miss Kai in Swallow the Sun. There is still hoping that Nightwish starts to make us of Kai's skills on the upcoming album but we'll see. But personally I'm kind of sad that he left one of my favorite bands for Nightwish. But I guess money speaks.

    Nuevo Álbum 2020?

    Diría Yours is an Empty Hope y TGSOE, pero ningún otro. Sigue siendo algo bastante loco que la nueva vocalista tenga solamente 1 disco de estudio y 3 en vivo. No me parece malo, yo contento con cada lanzamiento en vivo, pero pareciera advertir que la banda se enfocó más en salir de gira que en la creación de nuevo material (aunque sigue siendo más complejo, ya que esa responsabilidad cae únicamente en Tuomas al ser el principal compositor). Eso me pasó después de ver Showtime, Storytime (y haber ido a la gira del 2012 con Floor el año anterior). La banda era puro fuego en ese DVD. Y cuando llegó el material nuevo, nos dieron... Élan. Lindo tema, pero lo ponés al lado del DVD anterior y se lo come crudo cualquier tema que elijas de ese recital. La versión en vivo de Élan me resulta igual. Conecto a lo que dije antes: por eso no quiero hacerme altas expectativas. Esperaba el mismo fuego de ST, ST y me dieron un chasquibum (?) (Disfrutable el chasquibum, hey, pero si tengo que comparar con trabajos anteriores.... se me queda atrás :/ )
  16. Comunicado de prensa de Nightwish / 15 de julio del 2019 (Foto: Timo Isoaho) Nightwish ha comenzado a trabajar en su 9° disco de estudio que será lanzado durante el otoño del 2020. A continuación, les dejamos un comunicado de Jukka Nevalainen, quien ha sido el baterista de la banda desde nuestro primer disco en 1997 “Angels Fall First”: “Ya han pasado cinco años desde que tomé la difícil decisión, debido al insomnio grave, de apartarme del Vehículo del Espíritu de Nightwish. Esto incluyó el disco de estudio anterior y la gira que le siguió. Como esperaba, resultó ser lo correcto. Este último tiempo me sentí fantástico, y casi ni tuve que lidiar con los problemas de sueño. También me empecé a dar cuenta de que al tener más tiempo para enfocarme por completo en las cosas relacionados a la banda detrás del telón, estaba haciendo la diferencia. Dicho esto, he decidido no tentar mi suerte regresando a la banda. Mi querido amigo, Kai Hahto, tomará mi lugar como miembro permanente de la banda. Yo seguiré ocupándome de los asuntos detrás de la banda, ¡y espero ansiosamente las próximas aventuras que la vida tiene para ofrecerme! ¡Mi sincero agradecimiento a la banda y a los fans por el glorioso tiempo que compartimos!”.

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    A while ago I found music like this far too "boring", but nowadays it's the best thing to just leave playing in the background while being preoccupied with something else.

    Jukka forced to take a break

    I can only agree with what everyone has written here. Thank you Jukka for your contributions to Nightwish! I am happy to hear that his health is improved and that he will continue his work for the band in the background.

    Jukka

    Jetzt ist es also offiziell, dass Jukka als Drummer aussteigt. Natürlich ist es keine Überraschung, aber nach all den Jahren ist es doch etwas traurig, dass er nicht mehr hinter den Drums sitzen wird. Er hat das Bild von Nightwish gerade live sehr geprägt. Kai ist aber ein super Ersatz und ist schön ihn als permanentes Mitglied willkommen zu heißen.🙂

    Great to hear that Jukka is feeling much better these days. So why, indeed, push your luck. Health should come first, indeed.

    All respect to Jukka for the foundational work and wonderful spirit he brought to the stage. The Waken 2013 show was my introduction to the group. His presence and commitment behind the kit was one of the things you just had to notice. Right for him and right for Kai to be made a full member. And Jukka will be involved in an important way that lets him stay well! A while back I finally listened to a Wintersun track (not sure why it took so long) - those boys can rock! I had no idea what to expect. Seemed very technical to me. I'm sure Kai can give what they need of him and if they go that way (more drum focused), even more!

    I'm kinda sad, but knowing that Jukka is pretty much still working behind the scenes makes me happy. Besides, Kai Is a drums god.

    No big surprise. I expected it to happen way earlier though. Health is always the most important thing and Kai is also an amazing drummer. Besides, Jukka will still be involved with the band in the background like he did the past years. Seems to be fine for me. Still going to miss Jukka behind the drums.

    Yeah, we all knew it, but it's kind of weird seeing it officially announced. But I'm ok with that, Jukka hasn't been in the band for exactly 5 years now. And I'm really interested in seeing Kai's input as well.
