Nightwish May Change Musical Approach On Next Album

(Prog) Nightwish could move away from their heavily-orchestrated approach to music on their next album, says Troy Donockley. The multi-instrumentalist says they're looking at ways to explore a stripped-down sound without fully abandoning the complex arrangements they've become known for.

Asked about the possibility of an acoustic tour, Donockley tells CarlBegai.com: "I think if we went out with a skeleton crew of three woodwinds, a string quartet and the band, it would smooth over the edges of doing something that people might freak out over.

"It would still retain the orchestral elements, but strip it down to a chamber band. I think it's something we should get onto." He adds: "We're got plans for the next album - really loose plans - but some things are heading in the direction. Our fans are very forgiving." Read more here.
