Sonata In Excelsis,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stones Grow Her Name (Limited Digi) (Audio CD)
Without a doubt Sonata Arctica's most mature and `musical' effort to date. Sonata Arctica have transcended the genres of power, prog and melodic metal with this gem but don't panic metalheads as it is still METAL ... breathtakingly awesome metal! Always a talented band Sonata have taken the next step and one time comparisons with countrymen Stratovarius (who I love, don't get me wrong) are now irrelevant. Nobody makes metal like this - support this band now and buy this album!
