传记

Sonata Arctica (北极奏鸣曲) 组建时间: 1996年

国 籍:芬兰 风格:Power Metal(力量金属)

Sonata Arctica于1996年,在世界的边缘——北芬兰的一个叫Kemi的小镇上成立。乐队最初以Tricky Beans为人们所知,乐队用这个名字制作了三首demo(Friend till the End,Agre Pamppers和PeaceMaker)并在Jyrki举行过两次演出。经过1997年的一些人事变动后,这些人把乐队又改名为Tricky Means。在金属乐圈子里乐队最早被认为做实验性音乐,与重金属相去甚远。

1999年乐队在他们家乡的Tico Tico录音棚里录制了一首新的demo名叫“FullMoon”,从此乐队的历史翻开了新的一页。录音时乐队的阵容包括:Tony(主唱和键盘),Jani(吉他手),Tommy(鼓手)和Janne(贝斯手),这首新的demo是乐队对于重金属音乐的首次尝试。从此乐队以迅疾优美的旋律和以键盘为主导的重金属配以清澈洪亮的嗓音而闻名于世。在命运的驱使以及Tico-Tico录音棚的Ahti Kortelainen帮助之下,“FullMoon”这首demo被芬兰优秀的金属品牌——Spinefarm相中。同时乐队也从Tricky Means改名为Sonata Arctica。

1999年夏天Sonata Arctica为我们带来了他们的第一单曲碟——UnOpened,这同时也是1999年Metalliliitto发行的compilation版中的主打曲。单曲蝶中的两首激烈的单曲——UnOpened and Mary-Lou,标志着Sonata Arctica开始向能量金属范畴发展。在第一次压制单曲碟UnOpened时,第一首单曲UnOpened录制中不小心被放慢了节奏。在第一批CD发向各音像商店后不久这个失误才被觉察出来。这第一批销售的EP大概有200来张,如今已成为收藏者们稀有的宝物了。

1999年的秋天Sonata Arctica发布了他们第一张完整的专辑——Ecliptica。最初在芬兰发行,接着是其他一些国家。由于Ecliptica全面的成功,乐队有幸在两张tribute专辑中贡献两首翻唱曲——“I Want Out”在为Helloween的“Keepers of Jericho”和“Still Loving You”在为Scorpions的“A Tribute to the Scorpions”,这两首翻唱曲与原先版本相比都有出色的表现。

Ecliptica发行后不久,乐队的核心Tony Kakko决定专攻主音,而非象从前那样主唱兼任键盘手。Mikko Harkin(来自Kenziner)便加入了乐队来顶替以前由Tony担当的键盘手空缺,这也保证Tony能在舞台上更自由的发挥。这种变化使得乐队的现场演出更为充满活力,从此Sonata Arctica涣然一新——同时拥有两位键盘手,为现场表演更增意想不到的新鲜效果。

1999年末至2000年初乐队的人气依然保持激升状态。在专辑Ecliptica发行后,Sonata Arctica在15家不同唱片公司下超过32支乐队中脱颖而出,一举被Stratovarius选为欧洲巡回演出的友情乐队。这场演出开始于2000年四月,还有Strato和Rhapsody的倾情献艺。演出持续了两个月,Sonata Arctica在此期间在10个国家里登台表演30多次,行程超过1000公里。

    It's so great, that SA are back with such a great album like "Pariah's Child". Their best work since "Reckoning Night"!

    Yeah, me too. I love to listen to music through Spotify, it's an amazing programme, except from the wrong tags now and then. I hate to open iTunes just to listen to that one album : \\...

    I'm glad that this place is fairly active. It's the best place to discuss the band, since the moderation on the official forum has caused it to turn into a dull and completely utter joke.

    Hmm, Cloud Factory is a massively fun track and it has elements that sound like the SA of my teenage years. Stones might have been a complete miss for me, but I'm rather excited for the next album :)

    Oh, no need to apologize at all, I agree with you, I get tired of those reactions as well. But I also get tired of reactions in which people assume that someone who doesn't like some new album (not just SA's new one) must by definition be some closed-minded metalhead. I'm not counting your reaction among this last group though, don't worry :P

    @MetalWolf_: I know, I know, that's the only way it is! I just get so tired of reactions like: They are just a bunch of sellouts now that write mainstream music that has nothing to do with what they used to be. I wish Jani would come back! Since he left, they just suck!' Everybody has the right to like what they want, but saying it sucks, just because it isn't your thing, I get so tired of that xD Sorry!

    Of course I would complain if they released 8 albums which sound exactly like Ecliptica or RN or anything. I'm glad they try out new stuff... Of course when they do there will be a chance that I won't like it, which unfortunately was the case with their last 3 albums. But a band should always write songs they want to write, not songs the fans want them to write. I wouldn't want them to write a different album than they intended to write, just to please me

    I love first 4 albums because there was THIS for what i loved this band - a pure power metal with magical climate and some secrecy. I really don't like TDoG (ok Flag in the Ground is epic) but i don't tell they get worse. They only play a different kind of music on the each album.
