News from 16.12.99 - 02.02.2000
the interview made by Ossi J. is translated and is now online. You can
read the English version directly here.
I found very nice and new interview from "Aorta-zine".
Aorta interviewed Tony from SA and there is something really nice things.
Find out yourself what, I won't spoil. Too bad is the thing that interview
is only in Finnish, my English is so bad that even if I would get permission
to translate it, You wouldn't understand it :). Finnish visitors, check
Also Jannes interview is now also
available as .MP3! Thanks to OssiJ about that, file is 1,4mb and can be
downloaded from here. [Download]
cause of me being lazy there comes much new stuff this time. First I have
to mention that I saw Sonata at Nosturi-klubi and woooooh! Read about the
gig at here! (Report by OssiJ)
made interview of the band at the same gig. Today it will be here in
Finnish and in some days also in English.
Also if you didn't already know, Tony
was replaced from keyboards by Mikko Härkin. Now when Tony could focus
only in singing, I can say the replacement was only positive, for the gigs
atleast. From Mikko, I'll write something soon.
Salter, the guy who made guitar-tab for UnOpened
made also tab for Blank File. Many
thanks for him! (Tabs made by listening songs, they might and probably
I had enough time to put the images from gig at Jesperi, Tornio by Dragonlord
to page, again thanks to her! There is now about 70 very nice jpg images
of the band. They can be found from Band section

Last day of 20th
tomorrow we'll change to next millenium (god I hate that word) and world
is dead cause of Russian nuclearpowerplants or for instance it will be
just as ordinary day as the one before it. Happy and creative new century
to you and Sonata Arctica!
well better late than never. I don't remember who was asking about Sonata
Arctica guitartabs but if he visits here, he'll find what he wants. Tomi
Salter has made tab to UnOpened and is now doing one for Blank
File. As he said, the tab isn't perfect and is made by just listening the
song but it is better than nothing. View the tab here [Click]
and please visit his website.
Saikkonen has taken very nice pictures from Sonata Arcticas gig at Jesperi,
Tornio. For now you can only find the pictures from her
own page bandpage (site contains also very good imagematerial from
many different bands) but soon they can be also found from Sonatas official
site which they are going to update pretty soon. At Januray pictures can
also be found at here, thanks to her!
a really really interesting link from Sonata Arcticas guestbook. Link to
their former website, from times when they were called as Tricky Means.
Seems that Stratovarius has had bigger influense for the band than I had
ever imagined, most of the guys wearing Stratovarius t-shirts in pictures
and so on. And now they will tour over Europe with their "rolemodels",
nice. Also you'll find out from the page that all of thse guys like pizza
and something else ;) though site hasn't been updated for while but still
it's worth a visit!
