Sonata Arctica - New Video Online

The second video off Sonata Arctica's newest output Pariah's Child, released on March 28th via Nuclear Blast Records, is now online. After "The Wolves Die Young", the song chosen this time is the ballad "Love". Check out the video below and tell us what you think.

Tony Kakko commented: "I've been at times asked how all Sonata Arctica love songs are just cruel and sad and something is or goes always wrong. Well: Happiness is boring. That's why all the TV series are full of drama. 25 seasons of fucking sunshine and ice cream does not sell. Anyway, this is my attempt to navigate the uncharted waters of Happy. Sometimes you see these really old couples, who walk hand in hand, like they've done since they were mere kids. 'Love' is a song about that life long love we all would deserve. It's just beautiful. And rare."

Keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg also commented on the album making it to #1 in their Finnish home country again: "Somehow it never gets old to get your album to be #1. We're of course very pleased and want to say a huge thank you to all our fans for making this possible! Apparently people seem to be awake in other countries as well and we're very happy that our album is doing well all over the world. At the moment we're touring in Europe, playing the new stuff live has been really great and we're looking forward to tour into 2015 as well. See you all at the shows. Cheers!"

That exactly. Although I do love the usual cruelty and sadness than Tony usually puts in a love ballad.

Reminds me of the old Glam ballads of the 80's... Guilty pleasure for sure. The intro is a bit much though.
pewpew.. gotcha

Normally hate Patrick Ullaeus videos, but that brought a tear to my eye.
Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct
