Sonata Arctica Recording In September


This September Sonata Arctica will hit a recording studio somewhere, to craft new tunes of melodic metal mastery.

I’m actually not a fan of the band, and always wonder if any of my readers actually are.

The stories I have posted in the past seem to elicit a rather abysmal response.

Fuck it, though. Maybe one person will care, and for that person, here’s the news.

According to reports, Sonata Arctica will enter the studio in late September to begin recording their new album for a tentative April 2014 release.

Vocalist Tony Kakko has written around 50 songs for the follow-up to 2012’s Stones Grow Her Name.

That’s a lot of melodic metal, folks. Maybe too much.

The band plans to track and mix the effort over a three-month period.
