pariahsnew1Slated for North American release on April 1st, the track listing for Pariah’s Child, the eighth studio album by Finnish melodic metallers SONATA ARCTICA, is:

Sonata Arctica – Pariah’s Child
01. The Wolves Die Young
02. Running Lights
03. Take One Breath
04. Cloud Factory
05. Blood
06. What Did You Do In The War, Dad?
07. Half A Marathon Man
08. X Marks The Spot
09. Love
10. Larger Than Life

Overwhelmed by the results, SONATA ARCTICA frontman & lyricist Tony Kakko shares:

“There are some instant SONATA-Greatest-Hits songs there, which feels good. I think we reached the result we had in mind, each of us in our own field. We went on to create the next SONATA ARCTICA power metalesque album and I think we achieved it adequately. I have to say that I had drifted pretty far away from those “Days Of Thunder,” that speedy happy-go-lucky attitude. I was happy to notice this style can still make me smile. It’s good. Music has to do that to me. It also shows the other older songs in a totally new light for me. I can now understand and appreciate why the fans enjoy what we did in the early days.”

Pariah’s Child was recorded and produced by SONATA ARCTICA at Studio 57 in Alaveteli, Finland. The mix was done by Marko Paasikoski – the band’s new bass player.

Five in-studio episodes with each member will be released every week. Part 1 features SONATA drummer Tommy Portimo:
