On Monday Sonata Arctica Revisit Ecliptica For 15th Anniversary was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Sonata Arctica have re-recorded their 1999 debut album, Ecliptica - even though keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg admits the idea felt "weird" at first. The new version, entitled Ecliptica Revisited: 15th Anniversary Edition will be released via Nuclear Blast on October 24.
Klingenberg says the idea grew on the Finnish outfit when they considered that, from the current lineup, only singer Tony Kakko and drummer Tommy Portimo appeared on the original work.
He reports: "We're definitely not trying to rewrite history. The original Ecliptica is the starting point of this band, and a very special album with a certain feel of innocence and enthusiasm. That can't be recreated since we're not teenagers any more.
"The new version is more of a tribute and an update on how the songs sound when played by our current lineup." more - here.
