Sonata Arctica


After 18 years as a team, the wolf pack has moved from classic Power Metal to more progressive shores, but went back to their initial roots on the last release Pariah’s Child. Sonata Arctica have alwaus been up for a little surprise here and there, hence every one of the band’s 9 full-lenght releases carried its own charm that always added a fresh new touch to the genre, placing them on top of the melodic metal Olympus next to bands as Nightwish or Startovarius. On recently released The Ninth Hour the band once again concentrated on writing epic hymns with energetic melodies, dominated by fast guitar solos, catchy keyboard melodies and Tony Kakko’s unmistakable vocals.
