PostSubject: Sonata Arctica   Mon 14 May 2007 - 23:50

There must be a topic about the kings (ok, maybe not all of you consider them kings, but for me they are the best Very Happy , no offence, guys, I still love you Smile ) here!
Noticed that in the game someone (sorry I don't remember the nick, I'll need some time to learn who is who here...) mentioned them, also Altaria, which are a side project of their guitarist Jani Liimatainen, so probably you've heard them or, even better, you like them. Razz
I hope we can form a good discussion about them here, since I am keen on knowing what others think about their music. Smile

We talk about Sonata Arctica in the french page Very Happy

We know them and I really like them! Altaria is a really band, but it WAS Jani's Side Project, he left the band and play with them only sometimes ^^

Unia is something completely different from what we've heard so far from Sonata, definetely. You may not like it... I didn't like it the first time I heard it, but then it sounded.. tempting, then good, then veeery good and now it seems to be on second place after Silence and Winterheart's Guild. I have an illegal copy of the album, cause I could not wait for the official release, but I'll buy it when it gets out.

Btw, the vid for Paid in Full is NOT what I expected... it seemed so... ordinary. Reminded me in a way of the DSAW video, which I don't like at all. Rolling Eyes

@Megamuerte: You are not weird... or at least you're not alone in your weirdness.

At the begining, I was not a big fan of Unia... But now I really love it!!! The melodies are very amazing and I find there is sometimes a relation with some other kinds of rock and metal. I find there is a big relation with Queen, with a lot of variations in the music, a lot of Opera, and a relation with progressive metal like Dream Theater, with new musical effects... But it still keep a "Sonata Arctica's Soul" Very Happy

@Winterland-Adrien: Agree Smile

@Guillaume - Winterland: It won't fade... hate it... from almost every album there's a song I don't like or hate.. this is from Unia.

At least, in my country, Spain, Its said: "have the monkey" when you let taking a drug...and you fell bad.

"dont can take the monkey or her back" must mean than she cant left the drug and the feeling than She needs more.

If you want to uderstand Sonata's lyrics you have to know a lot about a lot of things, or do a REALLY lot of googling... (my case was googling)

Tony uses a lot of symbols amd metaphores in his lyrics and that makes them beautiful and so powerfull. At least that's what's I find really great about the lyrics.

We used to talk about Tony's way of expressing himself in poetry a lot with a friend of mine and we both concluded that though he's not a poet, he is one of the best writers ever... of course, that's personal oppinion...

...and sorry for the inadequate post, but I'm extremely tired...

This one is even harder......
Can someone tell me about what "the boy who wanted to be a real puppet" means? Shocked
sounds like "be carefull if you want to be a rock star like me, because it's not as happy as you think"
and...if the sense is that..... omg....its a really perturving lyric Shocked

It's the opposite story of Pinnochio (or however it is written...). And the song kinda carries the message "Careful what you wish for." and Tony says it at the end - Careful waht you wish for, wishes might come alive. Smile
