Sonata Arctica keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg was recently interviewed by Rock Overdose (Greece), in which he revealed some information on the direction of the next Sonata Arctica Release. The following Q&A represents an excerpt from that interview:
Q: So you are in the studio right now?
A: "We're going into the studio next month. We have one week of rehearsals left. We pretty much know the songs already."
Q: I suppose you know the direction of the album. Will it be similar to the previous one?
A: "No. I think this one will be a bit different from anything we've done before. It's not going to be so progressive as the two last ones were. That's for sure. Also I think this one will be more hard rock than our other works. It's hard to tell. I know how it will sound but it's hard to describe it."
Q: So it will not be so metal like the previous releases. It will be more hard rock?
A: "Well yeah. Of course it's going to be metal. It's not going to be like BON JOVI or something like that."
Q: Will you use symphonic elements?
A: "Well, probably not. We tried that on the previous album and it worked really well but the sound for this album doesn't really need symphonic elements."
Q: When are you planning to release the new album?
A: "Well it should be out before the summer of 2012. Somewhere around April or May."
