SONATA ARCTICA Release Third “Pariah’s Child” Trailer

Monday, 3rd February 2014

Finnish melodic metallers SONATA ARCTICA have released the third trailer for their eighth studio album, Pariah’s Child and is available for viewing below. The forthcoming record will be released on March 28 via Nuclear Blast.

Comments SONATA ARCTICA vocalist Tony Kakko: “There are some instant SONATA ‘greatest-hits’ songs there, which feels good. I think we reached the result we had in mind, each of us in our own field. We went on to create the next SONATA ARCTICA power metalesque album and I think we achieved it adequately.

“I have to say that I had drifted pretty far away from those ‘days of thunder,’ that speedy, happy-go-lucky attitude. I was happy to notice this style can still make me smile. It’s good. Music has to do that to me. It also shows the other older songs in a totally new light for me. I can now understand and appreciate why the fans enjoy what we did in the early days.”

Pariah’s Child tracklisting:

1. The Wolves Die Young
2. Running Lights
3. Take One Breath
4. Cloud Factory
5. Blood
