Does anyone else know or listen to this band? Sure there will obviously be a few people but over here in England no one seems to know about them! They're one of my favorite bands so it kinda sucks that no one else knows them.

Awesome band. Seeing them September 12th.


There is a Sonata Arctica thread already, though.

Sorry didn't know! Should have searched really......


I'm seeing them in November in the UK, can't wait

I can't stand them because a friend always listen to it at school, and then he says that they've got the greatest musician around, what a moron

Looking for a new sig!

I only like their cover of Fade To Black. They are good, i just dont like their style.

When I first heard the new album, I didn't really like it at all. After a few more listens, though it grows on you and you realize it's a good album.
#17
^ exactly that's why I didn't like it. The more I listen to it, though I think it was the right move in a way, just cause the fast sing-alongs would get a little tiring if they continued.
#18
yeah it was a right move in my opinion, but I think they got a bit carried away... But I still love them and am curious how the new songs are gonna work out live (gonna see them again in oktobre...)
#19
I think on the new album they should have done half and half, half slower songs and half nice fast catchy ones like their older ones - maybe if they do another album it will have some fast ones on it, who knows

Utter cheesy garbage. It's like emo themes except in a power metal body.

I like them a lot, but unlike other bands, I cant remember particular songs when I think of them. All their stuff is pretty similar, but I think that happens a lot with bands that use keyboards heavily, it makes the ambience of the songs hard to differentiate between.

EDIT: Oh yeah, did anyone hear about the RPG based on the band? They have their own characters and wrote the soundtrack to it. Its a proper 3D game, gonna be released this winter I think.

Winterheart's Guild is the game you're talking about. I'll definitely pick it up when it comes out. You're supposed to be able to unlock unreleased Sonata Arctica tracks.

I like them a lot, and hopefully I'll be going to see them when they come to the Palladium in Sept.

Edguy are cheesy shit and aren't really even power metal. Just pop.


Get the hell over that SA doesn't sing about dragons, doesn't make them emo.

The only song of theirs I have is "The Cage" and it makes me laugh. But I like it.
