Customer Review

on 14 July 2007
Although this is Sonata Arctica's first album it's the fourth of theirs I've actually purchased and listened too.

It's potent, inspiring and uplifting. The album cracks along at a frantic pace though there are quieter moments and it never gets too heavy or discordant. There are plenty of guitar solos which easily give Gilmour a run for his money.

Stand out tracks for me are "Full Moon" and the ballad "Letter to Dana". The final track "Destruction Preventer" moves between sections of almost poetic beauty to full on riffs.

I kind of found my way into Power Metal after hearing Nightwish and the experience just gets better the more I explore. Sonata Arctica are probably up there as my favourite band in the genre, along with Nightwish and Within Temptation. Heavier than Edenbridge but certainly more accessible than Therion, even if you're not a fan of Power Metal or Heavy Rock this is well worth a try.
