Gearing up for the release of their eighth full length studio album, entitled Pariah's Child, Finnish power metal experts Sonata Arctica have released their first single and accompanying music video from the album. Entitled "The Wolves Die Young", the song contains all the elements you'd expect to find in a classic Sonata Arctica song and has the potential to become an instant fans favourite. Don't take Scribes word for it though, have a watch and a listen for yourselves below:
Sonata Arctica frontman Tony Kakko had this to say about the song:
"The Wolves Die Young was pretty much born to be a single. And it is. It also paved the road for the rest of the album. Set a mood in a way. It just felt real good to start with. 2014 is the year of the wolf."
Pariah's Child will be released on the 31st of March 2014 through Nuclear Blast Records. The track listing and album artwork can be seen below:
