Tuomas Holopainen of Nightwish posted the following status update on "Imaginaerum The Movie":

"It`s Wednesday the 9th of November and the first single of Imaginaerum called "Storytime" is finally out today. It`s part 1 of a very long homecoming, 4 years in the making. Makes me feel a bit sad, fairly relieved and ultimately proud. Sad that a certain journey is finally coming to an end, relieved that everything worked out beautifully, and proud of the band members` and the fellow imagineers` effort in getting this colossal project together. Thank you.

I saw the first edits of Imaginaerum The Movie a week ago. Stobe and Mathieu have been working with the edits a few weeks now and the parts I saw were very convincing. The demo scores (by the tech wizard Petri Alanko) are working out wonderfully, even though we still need to toy around with them quite a bit. The special effects guys have also begun their work, so once we get all these layers together some truly mind blowing movie magic will be born. Basically now we just have to wait patiently and try not to breathe too much into their backs, and let them do their magic.

In the meanwhile, loads of promo and rehearsals still to be done.

Such exciting times,


The band recently released the music video for the first single "Storytime" at this location.

Nightwish also posted a video "About Storytime" that takes you behind the scenes, which can be viewed here:

The music was too fast-paced. I could not understand word one of it. If it wasn't for Jukka beating the Hell out of the drums, it would have sounded much like the music in Mama Mia!

Great costumes- finally forced Anette into some decent clothes. :-)

Over-all disappointing.

Well at least this is much better than the massive disappointment that was Amaranth.

Hmmm...I really dislike Annette...but I do think I'll give this a try when it's out. Maybe she'll grow on me? Doubt it but it's worth a shot for the rest of the music.
