The fine tuning and trimming of the new Nightwish album will be soon over. Holopainen, Kinnunen and Karmila got all the tracks of the forthcoming Imaginaerum mixed and several test masterings have been done during summertime. In the end of May we had a listening session at Finnvox together with the band (without Anette), Karmila, Kinnunen and Stobe Harju & Petri Alanko working on the movie score. Tuomas brought some champagne and Finnvox took care of some salty and sweet snacks. There will be still some work with instrumental-, orchestral- and surround versions, and “stop press” the album will come out before Christmas!
Arto Tuunela received a gold record of Astronautti by Pariisin Kevät. This means 10.000 sold albums. Finnvox congratulates it's own "golden boy". Pariisin Kevät has toured all summer for wide range of audience. Especially at Himos Festival one was able to spot - delightfully and perhaps strangely - heavily tattood guys in addition to young girls fighting the space in the front row and singing along to all the tracks. The rock 'n roll guys have been more typical sight at Major Label, the other band of Arto's, gigs. We have great news for the fans of both bands. Arto with his band mates are writing new material for both upcoming records.
