Sonata Arctica - Flag In The Ground
Sonata Arctica is a Finnish power metal band from the town of Kemi, originally assembled in 1996. A few days ago did Sonata visit Stockholm again for a show, this was the last gig on "The Days Of Grays Tour" so it was a little special. They toured with Winterborn (Another Finish Band) and Delain (Dutch Power Metal Band). It was great day/evening with loads of pranks, so it was lots of fun. Same crew as the last 5 times (i think) i have done Sonata, so that was great, chatting, laughing and talking about ski resorts in Levi and how the color on the houses over there is done...lol. Had some time to take some pictures.
Some Sonata Fans.
