I love computers / about the sonata album & all kinds of shit

Posted on February 24, 2012 at 4:00 PM


so what's been up ? Well at least I know what's been down and that's the SA website, the SA webshop and these pages. Quite a lot within a few weeks. Anyways everything is back in order and here's a rundown on other matters:


Last weekend we held a listening party for the press (at the Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki), showcasing our new album. We even let them participate on some "hey" shouts for the song Shitload of Money. It was interesting to see the look on peoples faces when they listened to the stuff for the first time, and I'm sure you'll be surprised too :-) ...later on we did some interviews before we headed out to the FME to do a signing session. As you can imagine being home for the last 6 months left it's mark meaning once again yours truly was in a happy state of mind (=drunk). Nevertheless it was a lot of fun and this week we've been fine-tuning the songs, finalising the album cover and next up is the mastering and after that we're done with the album. Then of course we get to shoot a video, I have a bunch of programming to do, some band rehearsals and a lot of interviews before we're ready to get into touring mode, starting with the festivals. The first one is in Belgium in the beginning of April if I'm not mistaken. I'm really looking forward to playing the new stuff live...it's been too long without any shows. Meanwhile check out my solo album (as some of you thankfully already did)....and I'll make another one as soon as I get to it. I'll be on two other albums that should be out this year (the before mentioned Silent Voices album) and another melodic metal thing....as always I'll keep you posted.






and, just to have it all in one post, here's where you can get my solo album as well as the new Mental Care Foundation single.

Yay, I'm so pleased your page is back! :D So strange how all the websites went down almost at once, but at least it's all resolved now.

I'm glad to hear there's going to be a video, but I'm sad it's not shot yet! I'm guessing that means it won't come out until after the album. Unless there's going to be a video-less single, this means that I won't be able to hear *anything* from the album until I get my copy... As amazing as you guys are live, I want my first listening to be of the studio versions :)

Again, glad to have you back! :)

Henkka, I have a very serious question for you: do you sleep? Because man, you've been BUSY.

Not that I'm complaining of course, not while I'm currently holding my Special Edition Six Pack Attack that I've got this morning! :D You're amazing. I can't wait to see you guys (shoulda come to FME but, alas, no money)

hey Henkka!
glad to see that your website still exists. its been out for quite a while and i started to worry that interesting blog entries were a definite thing of the past... so thanks for proving me wrong :P

Can't WAIT till you guys play the show in Belgium, though i will not be there (and most likely not on forces of Metal in NL either. boohoo :( ) but i'm so friggin anxious to hear the new stuff played live and i'll be stalking youtube like a boss around that time XD
Hope you announce a European tour soon also. I MISS ALL OF YOU SO MUCH!!!!

So far what I've heard from the people who were at the listening party the new album sounds very promising. You have no idea how anxious i am to hear the final result!

Anyhow.. enjoy home-time while it lasts and have fun on the festivals
