First single ‘Closer To An Animal’ released and album tracklist revealed!

After announcing the new album »The Ninth Hour«, due on October 7th, the Finnish melodic metal quintet SONATA ARCTICA now presents its first single and lyric video ‘Closer To An Animal’.

“‘Closer to an animal’ was a song that our vocalist Tony sent to the studio somewhere around the middle of the sessions with the words: ‘This will be the album opener’,” keyboarder Henkka Klingenberg remembers. “After checking out the demo, we all just had to agree. I would say that musically this is a ‘metal meets 80’s’ type of song. We wanted this as the first single, since it gives quite a clear picture of what you can expect on the upcoming album, or at least some of it. I’m really looking forward to opening the shows on the next World Tour with this track!”
