NIGHTWISH releases their ninth album trailer. In this episode mixing engineer Mikko Karmila, as well as mastering engineer Mika Jussila give an insight into their work on »Endless Forms Most Beautiful«.
Tuomas Holopainen commented: “I guess mixing an album can be compared to editing a movie. We have to arrange the clips into a dramatic arc and find a good balance.”
