Since the release of their debut album, "Ecliptica," twenty years ago, Finland's, Sonata Arctica has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the most beloved names in symphonic metal. Their latest album, "The Ninth Hour," is a prime example of their thought out arrangements and well researched lyrics, dealing with a number of subjects, while incorporating several different influences.

At their recent acoustic show in London, supported by Witherfall (with whom you can see an interview with here,) I caught up with keyboardist Henkka Klingenberg and bass player Pasi Kauppinen to discuss "The Ninth Album," progress on a new album and why the band has always been connected with wolves. You can watch the interview in full below.
