What Lies Beneath is the new album from the Finnish multi-platinum singer Tarja Turunen, best known as the original vocalist of Nightwish and the most successful female singer from Finland ever.
Effortlessly fusing metal, classical and pop-rock, What Lies Beneath was recorded and produced by Tarja and mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, The Cure, Robert Plant), Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Bullet For My Valentine) and Slamm Andrews (Scores of Angels & Demon, Pirates of The Caribbean, Gladiator).
The album debuted this week at #4 on the German charts and Noisecreep recently detailed the videos for the first single, “Until My Last Breath,” and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, which can be seen below:
Special guests on What Lies Beneath include Phil Labonte (All That Remains), Joe Satriani, Jason Hook (5 Finger Death Punch), Will Calhoun (Living Colour), The Slovak National Symphony Orchestra and Choir and more. About.com said the album features “tons of melody to spare, and Tarja’s soaring soprano all over the place” while RockSound extolls, “this remains very much a distinctly classy showcase for Turunen’s utterly flawless, inimitable vocals, strong songwriting skills, and admirable desire to neither rest on her laurels, nor confine herself to any particular style.”
