Sonata Arctica (FIN)

Sonata Arctica

Sonata Arctica has been preaching the gospel of Finnish metal abroad for decades. They have released 10 albums of which the latest The Ninth Hour is a return to more straightforward power metal and ballads after experimenting with genres such as musical, opera, progressive rock and 80's heavy metal. This versatility is, of course, a wonderful asset live. However, the best thing about Sonata Arctica is probably their sincerity: swaying eyes closed or going full speed ahead, they always wear their heart on their sleeve.
