Finnish symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH have uploaded a new video blog, featuring footage of the band at Abbey Road Studios in London, England working with arranger Pip Williams and conductor James Shearman on the orchestral parts for the group's new album, due later in the year. Check it out at this location. Photos from the sessions can be found here.NIGHTWISH is accepting demo submissions until January 15, 2007 for its vacant singer position. More information is available at this location. NIGHTWISH fired its original singer, Tarja Turunen, via an "open letter," which was given to the singer immediately following their final concert together, which took place on October 21, 2005 at the Hartwall arena in Helsinki, Finland. The Helsinki show was filmed and recorded for the "End of an Era" DVD and CD, which entered the German chart at a No. 3 and has been certified gold for sales in excess of 25,000 copies. "End of an Era" was also certified gold in Finland the day after its release. In addition to the live footage, the DVD includes a slideshow of pictures from the Hartwall show and a 55-minute documentary, "A Day Before Tomorrow", featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the band in the 15 days prior to the Hartwall Show. The documentary was edited by Timo Halo, who also edited and directed the "From Wishes To Eternity - Deleted Scenes" and "End of Innocence" movies that were released on previous NIGHTWISH DVDs.
