Fans of the Finnish band Sturm und Drang were in for a treat at Tampereen Ylioppilasteatteri, when Jeppe Welroos and André Linman played some of their best known songs in an intimate acoustic set. We really enjoyed finally being able to listen to these songs live again.

Album Reviews

After Volume 1 of ‘Acoustic Adventures’ came out in January via Atomic Fire Records, its follow up wasn’t far behind. Volume 2 focuses more on the faster tunes in Sonata Arctica’s catalogue, but is just as filled with tender emotions.

Dawn of Solace recently released a 4 track acoustic EP ‘Notes of Perdition’ via Nobel Demon Records, which solely focuses on the emotions it’s trying to convey. There’s no extras, nothing unnecessary. While it’s not the most creative record it’s of high quality: raw, simple and yet very emotional.

Sonata Arctica immortalized the acoustic versions of some of their classics on the new album »Acoustic Adventures Volume One«.

Magnus Pelander, the man behind Witchcraft, made ‘Black Metal’ completely on his own, turning it into an extremely minimalist acoustic adventure.
