Sonata Arctica reveal artwork for new album, Pariah’s Child

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 9th January 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

31st March will see the release of a new Sonata Arctica album entitled Pariah’s Child. It is the band’s eight studio album and the follow-up to their successful release Stones Grow Her Name. Today the breathtakingly beautiful cover artwork, as seen above, for Pariah’s Child has been revealed. Vocalist Tony Kakko explains the thoughts behind the album title and the artwork:

As always it’s pretty hard coming up with a name for the new baby. I tried to approach it from many angles; how this is our 8th album and how easy it would be to abuse that fact. All the symbolism of figure eight, eternity and so on. But that just did not feel right as it’s been done so many times. Then I started to think how we’d in ways abandoned our “totem animal”, the wolf and all what comes with the territory. As the music on the album is bowing more towards the “old” Sonata, meaning more power metal style elements and wolves in many of the songs in one form or another, it was clear we need a wolf on the cover. An abandoned wolf. A pariah. Or Pariah’s child, actually. The new generation to bring the old logo back.

Following the release of Pariah’s Child in March, Sonata Arctica will be touring once again. Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg commented:

It’s been a while since we last toured Europe, so I’m very happy that we can announce our first tour with our new album. Since the album will be out in March 2014, we don’t want to waste any time but will head out for a full European Tour. Our tour will start in Eindhoven, NL on April 10th, 2014. The whole band is really looking forward to play some new songs for you and introduce our new bass player, Pasi, for all our fans. He’s a monster live, you’ll see.

CENTURIAN set to record new album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 27th January 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

The Dutch death metal formation that are CENTURIAN will start recording their third full-length album, titled Contra Rationem, on April 27th together with producer/sound-engineer Jo Peeters (Aborted, Heaven Shall Burn, Severe Torture) and Ralph Timmermans (Mindpark) at the We Are (Music) Junkies recording studio in Eindhoven. The album will be released by Listenable Records and will be the first studio release after 11 years – way to make us wait for a new release, eh?

Rob Oorthuis, founding member and writer/composer of CENTURIAN, commented: “The new record should appeal anyone who is prepared to die for his stands. Believe nothing, dare all!”

A few song titles include: Judas Among Twelve, Adversus, The Will Of The Torch, Thou Shallt Bleed For The Lord Thy God, Antinomian, Feast Of The Cross.
