While currently on yet another successful World Tour, this time to support their latest studio-album 'Pariah's Child', Finnish Melodic Metal heroes Sonata Arctica swung by the studio to re-record their debut album 'Ecliptica', which was released 15 years ago.

Henrik "Henkka" Klingenberg comments: "When it first was suggested to us by our Japanese label that we'd re-record our debut album 'Ecliptica', it felt a bit weird, but somehow the idea grew on us, Being that only Tony and Tommy played on the original one, we thought that it would be a fun thing to do, to give these great songs another run, We're definitely not trying to re-write history, the original 'Ecliptica' is the starting point of this band and a very special album with a certain feel of innocence and enthusiasm which cannot be recreated as such since we're not teenagers anymore, Having said that, this new version is more of a tribute and an update on how these songs sound when played by our current line-up, We wanted to stay true to the original album as much as possible and not turn this into some weird re-arranged project where you couldn't tell which song was being played.

So here it is, the 15th anniversary version of 'Ecliptica', Hope you enjoy it, we certainly had a good time digging into these songs and laying down the tracks."
