Listing Detail Tabs

Endless Forms Most Beautiful is the upcoming eighth album by Finnish symphonic power metal band Nightwish. It is also their first album without drummer Jukka Nevalainen, who had to take a temporary break from the band due to suffering of strong insomnia, leading him to step away from both the album and its subsequent tour. All the drum parts of the album were consequently played by Kai Hahto from Wintersun and Swallow the Sun; due to this, this album features only five Nightwish members, despite being their first album released with the band being a sextet.

The album was primarily inspired by the work of naturalist Charles Darwin. According to Nightwish's main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen, the album found its main inspiration from a famous quote from Darwin's 1859 h­ighly influential book On the Origin of Species. This quote included the words “endless forms most beautiful”, used by Darwin to describe the evolution from one common ancestor to all living organisms, that were subsequently chosen as the title of the album.
