Sonata Arctica

Sonata Arctica were born ‘at the edge of the world’ as they say on their homepage, in the north of Finland. 1996 saw them starting as a band in the name of Tricky Beans, changed later to Tricky Means, until in 1999 while recording a demo the powermetal side of the band was finally discovered and Sonata Arctica was born and baptised.
