Finland's Nightwish released the part eight in a "making of" documentary series for the upcoming, yet untitled, new album, which set for release in 2015. The clip features the band is visiting the rainy city of London to record the choir, orchestral parts and percussions for their new album at Angel Studios.

Commented keyboard player and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen: "This must be the sixth or seventh time we’re working with these people. We’ve realized what they can do during these years. So it’s really not a surprise anymore but it hasn’t ceased to amaze me. The level of professionalism is just unbelievable. But even more importantly, they clearly like what they’re doing. The guys we’ve worked with for over 10 years are still up for it."

Added session-drummer Kai Hahto (Wintersun): "The professionalism is amazing. We were recording ethnic percussion yesterday. Some of the guys had played on Star Wars movies – and done Hans Zimmer soundtracks. I thought of myself as a humppa drummer. It was pretty amazing. They know their prima vista. You give them the notation, and they’ll nail it in no time."

Nightwish previously revealed the famed evolutionary biologist and atheist writer/leader Richard Dawkins as a guest on the album.

The clip was produced by Ville Lipiäinen. Check it out here:

Nightwish will embark on a massive North American tour with Sabaton and Delain in April-May 2015. For dates and venues, head on over to this location.
