SONATA ARCTICA – Who Failed The Most

Today, melodic metal titans SONATA ARCTICA herald the start of the cold season as the group releases their 10th studio album Talviyö (Winter Night), via Nuclear Blast. To mark the occasion, the Finns have launched a brand new music video for ‘Who Failed The Most’, which was produced by renowned director Patric Ullaeus (rEvolver Film Company; DIMMU BORGIR, ENSLAVED, IN FLAMES etc.).

Keyboardist Henrik ‘Henkka’ Klingenberg states, “The wait is finally over, now all of you will hear what we’ve been working on for the past year or so as we present our latest album »Talviyö.« It was quite an experience getting this album ready for you guys and for the first time ever, we had some outside help from our very own Mikko Tegelman who produced the album. We focused on playing live this time and I think the album really captures how SONATA ARCTICA sounds like today. It will be a blast to go out and perform this new music alongside selected cuts from our catalogue. See you soon and meanwhile we hope you enjoy the album as much as we did making it.

“It’s also time for the second video of »Talviyö.« ‘Who Failed The Most’ is one of the more approachable songs on the album and we worked with Patric Ullaeus once again to create the video. We took advantage of the nice Finnish summer and shot our performance outside for a change, which turned out quite cool. You’ll probably hear this song throughout the »Talviyö World Tour« that’s starting right now in North America and from there we’ll continue to Europe and the rest of the world. Cheers!”

Talviyö is available to order on the following formats:
CD/CD-Digipack
2LP (black, blue, clear) Vinyl
Box set: CD-Digipack, 2LP Marbled Vinyl, puzzle, poster + photo card

Talviyö was recorded between September 2018 and May 2019, produced by Mikko Tegelman and SONATA ARCTICA in ‘Studio57’. Additional recordings took place in various other places. “Mikko produced the album and he really managed to push us to do our best, even with the more experimental stuff. Working with an outside producer was the biggest new thing we tried this time”, says Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg. The mixing was done by Mikko Tegelman and Pasi Kauppinen and the mastering was handled by Svante Forsbäck for ‘Chartmakers’.
