The Sonata Arctica book is now available in english e-book, buy and download:
The Book tells the story about Kemi’s most notable musical export.
With the voice of the band itself and the people close to them Sonata Arctica tells the story about the bands rise to international fame. It´s also a story about the luck the band had in the beginning and the lucky coincidences that rarely happen to bands.
In the book there’s also a complete discography and a lot of previously unreleased pictures spanning the bands whole career.
There will be also a short story The Key in the book by Tony Kakko himself.
As told by themselves and those close to them, SONATA ARCTICA is the story of an internationally successful rock band, its people and their success. It is a personal growth story of a group of musicians and an honest-to-God account of a career filled with amazing strokes of luck and grueling hard work; musical oddities and skyrocketing success; the story about a band’s metamorphosis from a group of green-horned oafs to seasoned professionals with an unbroken string of Gold Records under their belts.
This is a heart and soul account of a close-knit but turbulent fraternity with all of their joys and sorrows; about painful but unavoidable line-up changes; a tale of beating all the odds and about music as a calling often not quite as glamorous as hyped.
The book includes the debut short story by the singer of SONATA ARCTICA, Tony Kakko.
