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。

    I've been using Google Music for quite some time now and I like the feature that you can upload to 20'000 songs for free. My brother told me this feature was coming to Spotify too. Can't confirm that 'cause I haven't used Spotify in like 3 years.

    I loved the fact that we had the world premieres of Blood and Half a Marathon Man. Both were great live. About PC, I googled. It's because of NB. Hmpf. Not only Sonata Has this. For some reason, Kamelot's Ghost Opera isn't in Spotify. Why that album? Every earlier album is there, and everything that came after that, too. But Ghost Opera? Nooooooooo, sir!

    Seriously? :( I dislike that, because some songs are so awesome and I would love to hear them too. (Why can't they just play everything? :D 4 hour long show xDD.) On the other side, I do like it. Bit of an exclusive show per evening.

    http://www.setlist.fm/setlists/sonata-arctica-43d683af.html It looks like every crowd is getting a different setlist...I think that's quite cool, actually :P

    Blood... Amongst the Top 10 best Sonata Arctica songs of all time? I think so.

    Also... ''TK : [... ]There is also the fact we are about to re-record our first album, Ecliptica later in the year, after a request from our Japanese label . We thought it would be weird but after all, why not? This is something I wanted to do for a while, repeat this album, correct errors, address the album differently, we were novices so we had no idea what we were doing. Some songs are not good at your example and I would be quite unable to sing it now, I already could not sing at the time but I did not care , I knew nothing and it does m had not crossed my mind that I had to sing live , or even that I could not stay in one place , static, but I had to move and do the show , a nightmare ! This is an opportunity to redo it all and all these factors combined led to this idea, this album, Pariah 's Child .'' Japanese label? So this is only going to be released in Japan? I wonder what it's going to sound like, the old songs with their current sound, though!

    Exactly! That's also what I like about X Marks The Spot. - And I want to have PC on Spotify as well! :(( (Also; Every time I see PC, I think Personal Computer - not Pariah's Child. D'oh! </geek>)

    Also. PC still hasn't returned to Spotify. What's that all about : \\?

    I liked the intro, too xD I like the priest the whole time. The way he talks is fantastic xD 'Testify, children, testify!'

    By the way, I laughed so hard when the priest in the outro said; Sonata Arctica has left the building. :')))))

    So many great songs on Reckoning Night and WHG they never play

    I think I Have A Right works quite well live, especially in the beginning, with that short a capella intro, but it becomes a bit repetitive at the end, so yeah, they should probably replace it with something from Winterheart's Guild, or Cinderblox / Take One Breath perhaps :P

  • CoenVen

    Hm, Sing in Silence would also be nice. I LOVE Paid in Full, but have seen it once or twice already, and I don't like it that much live, to be honest. But yeah, these setlists are way better. If they could only replace I Have A Right with something else.. xD Fun song, live, but... yeah.

    @wishmaster_666: True :P I also went to the Stones Grow Her Name tour, and this show was much more energetic.
