"SONATA ARCTICA Unveils Haunting Music Video for 'Dark Empath' Ahead of Album Release 'Clear Cold Beyond' on March 8, 2024" ...

 

Leading the way to their highly anticipated new offering »Clear Cold Beyond« (to be released on March 8, 2024 through Atomic Fire), Finnish melodic metallers SONATA ARCTICA surprise fans with a brand new music video today. Their latest track, ‘Dark Empath,’ can now also be enjoyed in all its visual glory over on YouTube. Telling the story of a character being chased, both mentally and physically, the haunting result, which was created by a team led by director/script writer Miikka Lommi and producer Katja Jokinen, can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxwKBpdin0Y

ICYMI:

Singer Tony Kakko commented on ‘Dark Empath’“This track is part of a saga that started with the song ‘The End Of This Chapter’ on our second album »Silence« in 2001 — some even think it started on our debut album — and has many sequels and prequels already. Its stalker theme offers a frame to write songs in a certain style I like very much. People do not seem to mind this, fortunately, haha! It’s not a chronological story, but rather a theme with reoccurring, familiar characters that end up living through variations of the theme over and over again.”

Pre-order the album in the physical format of your choice, pre-save it on your favourite DSP or pre-order it digitally to receive ‘Dark Empath,’ ‘A Monster Only You Can’t See’ and ‘First In Line’ instantly now, here: https://sonataarctica.afr.link/clearcoldbeyondPR

‘First In Line’https://sonataarctica.afr.link/firstinlinePR

»Clear Cold Beyond« contains 10 tracks reviving the band’s penchant for power metal-esque tunes following their trip to acoustic landscapes during the pandemic. It’s packed with strong songs and fuses the best of all periods of SONATA ARCTICA‘s multifaceted work: From high-speed anthems such as ‘First In Line’ and ‘California’ to emotion-laden tracks such as ‘The Best Things’ and the closing title track, this record offers something for each and every SONATA ARCTICA fan. The album’s artwork, reminiscent of their early works, was created by Niko Anttila and the band returned to mixing engineer Mikko Karmila (Finnvox Studios»Ecliptica« [1999] – »Stones Grow Her Name« [2012]). Final mastering was handled by Svante Forsbäck (Chartmakers WestRAMMSTEINKORPIKLAANIDELAINTHE 69 EYESDEATHSTARS etc.) who has also been part of other SONATA ARCTICA productions.
