Finnish melodic metallers SONATA ARCTICA have uploaded the fifth video installment of a series featuring behind-the-scenes footage from their recent South American tour. Watch the video clip here or below:
SONATA ARCTICA’s February 27, 2011 concert in Milan, Italy will be filmed for the band’s second live DVD, to be released in late 2011. According to a recent statement, “[SONATA ARCTICA] will perform a pretty unique show of at least 120 minutes. Next to songs of their latest albums, The Days Of Grays and Unia, they also will perform some of the older songs from previous albums plus some very rare songs they didn’t play live during the last years. For sure this will be an unforgettable event and a journey from the beginning of their career as one of the most popular Finnish metal bands until now — you definitely shouldn’t miss it.
“The DVD will be released through Nuclear Blast Records and Marquee Inc. in Japan and will, next to the show in Milan, contain another show, recorded 2009 during the SONATA ARCTICA Open Air Festival in their hometown Kemi, Finland. And of course, there will be massive bonus material such as the ‘making-of,’ interviews, and plenty of video footage the band recorded the last few years during their career on tour.”
