SONATA ARCTICA Announces 'Clear Cold Beyond' Album

Sonata Arctica unveil first details on forthcoming studio album Clear Cold Beyond

New digital single 'A Monster Only You Can't See' to become available on December 8, 2023

SONATA ARCTICA are back in full force! Fueled by enthusiastic reactions to their recent digital single 'First In Line,' the melodic metal quintet are pleased to provide the first details about of their long-awaited new studio album, titled Clear Cold Beyond, which will hit the shelves on March 8, 2024 through Atomic Fire. The album contains 10 tracks reviving the band's penchant for power metal-esque tunes following their trip to acoustic landscapes during the pandemic.

Clear Cold Beyond is packed with strong songs and fuses the best of all periods of SONATA ARCTICA's multifaceted work: From high-speed anthems such as the aforementioned '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 West; RAMMSTEIN, KORPIKLAANI, DELAIN, THE 69 EYES, DEATHSTARS etc.) who has also been part of other SONATA ARCTICA productions.
