Can't wait! Especially cause I'm gonna get to see them live in September.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

Looks like they're ditching the mirror-image S and A from their logo for the new ones... bummer.

And I gotta say, I think their website is the only legitimate .info site on the internet..

i'm excited!!! i suppose i'll have to actually buy this one..

Has anyone else even heard the new album yet? I guess it was leaked on the internet but its pretty damn good. It lives up to my high SA standards. Can't wait to see some of the songs done live \m/

Really? Paid in Full and Caleb are both amazing in my opinion.

I just listened. first listen only, but not particularly memorable, like fallout said. seemed too... produced. like not enough peaks and valleys, just some wavy ground. But enjoyable of course, and perhaps with louder speakers and more listens i will increase my opinion

I think the levels and the mixing screwed up somewhere. You can hardly hear Kakko singing in some of the songs, and his voice is the highlight of Sonata for me.

Not enough catchy guitar riffs, lacking in crazy keyboard action, no real memorable songs.. Quite dissapointing actually.


EDIT: Ok, it's kinda catching, after listening to the album a few more times. "The Vice" has quite a good guitar riff.
