The Last Amazing Greys - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOB81YME8r8

The Last Amazing Greys (Orchestra Version) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbenZk5_KSs

Flag in the Ground - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZCFVbgVdHs

Flag in the Ground (Orchestral) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyK4zcLRPCI



The new album, which is scheduled to come out in Finland on September 16, will also have an optional digipack with "orchestral" versions. By the sound of these I'm definitely going to be getting those. I think this album sounds like it's going to be great!

I think byd will be pleased by this. I think it sounds a lot better than Unia so far.

I agree, but then I've always thought they were lame. Ludo from MH couldn't even convince me otherwise and he usually has decent taste in music.

The remedy for stuff like this is here though:

I love Rhapsody too, but I don't see how you can Sonata Arctica soft rock. Just because they release orchestral versions, or because they have a ballad, doesn't mean it's soft rock. I mean, f*ck, check these songs out

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKD0Q5LfSl8
I really don't understand how anyone could ever call this soft rock

i wasn't calling that song soft rock i was calling the first youtube clip that was posted soft rock "the grays" or whatever sounds like the mormon tabernacle boys choir covering a scorpions ballad.

lol they covered a Scorpions ballad.

I dunno, I like them a lot. But it's far from mainstream, and FAR from soft pop rock. Hell, music like this isn't even popular stateside

Tell me Kur, what makes a band mainstream to you? The fact that people who enjoy metal listen to it? The fact that it's popular among power metal fans? Or, the fact that is played on the radio every 10 minutes and a bunch of people who don't like metal at all listen to it?

Trust me, it's not mainstream. F*cking Justin Timberlake is mainstream. Nickleback is mainstream. Sonata Arctica is not mainstream.

So what? I'm pretty sure you could do that with any number of metal bands. I don't get your reasoning. You see, for some one to learn about this band they have to go looking for it. You can't learn about Sonata Arctica by turning on the radio, you can't learn about Sonata Arctica by watching mtv, and you can't learn about Sonata Arctica by talking to anyone except metalheads.

ok so Sonata Arctica is mainstream. I guess that means Cannibal Corpse is mainstream now, Burzum is mainstream (their arguably the most popular black metal band), Ensiferum is mainstream, and of course ColdWorld is mainstream because any one who likes this kind of music could tell you about it.

I guess if 1 person likes a band it's mainstream because they can tell you about it on an elevator. Hell, my friend told me about his new metal band, I guess it's mainstream too

your logic is flawed

well cannibal corpse is very mainstream

the elevator bit was a joke about them playing "elevator music"

all i'm even saying is that i don't like the grays song, you are blowing this way outta proportion

I get really passionate about music, especially when I think it's being insulted. But let's just drop this and listen to music

This is a definite improvement from Unia. But that isn't saying too much. If these are the singles, I'd think the album would be a low 7/10 for me. But man, I think their Eplicta days are over, but I still enjoy that album. The singer sometimes does these weird things with his voice comparable to Serj. But the singles are enjoyable to listen to, but I wouldn't download them. I remember how pumped I was for Unia only to be crushed lol

Oh yeah that makes sense.

Personally I just say some bands are well-known. That's usually immediately understandable and acceptable.

Wow it was hard to find a song on youtube O.o
Toby Knapp is a f***ing excellent guitarist imo.
Their second album is better but I couldn't find any clips of it.
