Power metal fans know that some of the best metal in the world comes from the colder regions of the planet. Many of the
metal scene's most renowned artists call this area home. Artists like Sonata Arctica, one of power metal's hottest players
in the scene. If you were hoping to pick up your concert
tickets to a memorable metal show, don't pass up the opportunity to see Sonata Arctica! If you're a fan of prog metal
bands like Rhapsody of Fire or Isis, this is one show you won't want to miss!
Sonata Arctica first formed in 1995 in the burgeoning power metal scene of Kemi, Finland. They weren't always performing
power metal, however. Sonata Arctica got its start playing hard rock in the clubs and venues of Kemi under the name Tricky
Bean. After changing their name to Tricky Means, the band's sound began to evolve. They released their first album, "Ecliptica",
in 1999 on Spinefarm Records, which was produced by Mikko Karmila of Children of Bodom fame. In 2001, they released "Silence"
on the same label. It's noted for its accompanying backing vocals by Timo Kotipelto, lead singer of Stradivarius. In 2003,
they released "Winterheart's Guild", an album that originally earned nine out of ten stars from the popular e-zine "Lords
of Metal". In 2004, "Reckoning Night" came out on the recording label Nuclear Blast and featured the debut of keyboardist
Henrik Klingenberg. 2007 brought the release of "Unia", which made the European list of top 100 albums that year. In 2009,
the group went back to their darker roots with the release of their sixth album, "The Day of Grays". As of 2012's release
of "Stones Grow Her Name", Sonata Arctica isn't showing any signs of slowing down. As with many metal groups, Sonata Arctica
is comprised of many members. The group's permanent lineup consists of Tommy Portimo, Tony Kakko, Henrik Klingenberg, and
Elias Viljanen to name a few. They were voted "Newcomer of the Year" by Hard 'n Heavy Magazine.
