Power metal messiahs at two concerts in Poland. Who will appear alongside Sonata Arctica?

Concerts in Poland will take place in Warsaw (Proxima, October 11) and Poznań (Tama, October 12).

Called the “messiahs of power metal”, the Finns from the group Sonata Arctica released the album “Clear Cold Beyond” at the beginning of March, in which they reach back to their roots.

“After two unintentionally lighter albums (2022 acoustic material), we have felt for some time that it was necessary to play heavier. Returning to metal feels like a new beginning, and we had a lot of fun composing and recording these songs. More speed and songs that people will want to sing with us,” he announced before the premiere Tony Kakkovocalist Sonata Arctica.

“Clear Cold Beyond” was mixed at Finnvox studio under the supervision of Mikko Karmili (they worked together on the first two albums). He did mastering at the Chartmakers West studio Svante Forsbäck, who has been cooperating with Sonata Arctica in this matter for many years. The author of the cover is Niko Anttila.

The Greeks will also come with new material Firewind. Commanded by a former guitarist Ozzy Osbourne Gus G on their tenth album, the group successfully combines hard rock with power metal, and the guitar solos perfectly match the vocals Herbie Langhans (Avantasia).

Founded by former musicians Helloween, Blind Guardian, Visions of Atlantis Whether Ted Morose the band has released six full albums, and the last of them, “Vengeance is Mine”, was released in February 2022.
