SONATA ARCTICA - Unia (2007)



Formación: Tony Kakko (Voz); Jani Liimatainen (Guitarra); Marko Paasikoski (Bajo); Henrik Klingenberg (Teclados); Tommy Portimo (Batería).
País: Finlandia.
Estilo: Power Prog Metal.

Difícil disco el que se ha marcado la banda finesa en su regreso con un anunciado cambio de registro. Y cierto es que Sonata Arctica se presentan con un sonido nuevo, con leves recuerdos del sonido que les ha hecho importantes, ese speed metal melódico que hacía las delicias de sus fans pero, reminiscencias aparte, tratando de innovar explorando campos más progresivos, con estructuras más complicadas, juegos de voces, guitarras más afiladas y mayores ambientaciones, algo totalmente respetable si no fuera porque el disco resulta a veces demasiado forzado para resultar novedoso, demasiado premeditado para demostrar que no sólo son una banda de metal muy pegadizo, y en muchos períodos el trabajo resulta frío y transmite poco. Tras un comienzo aún esperanzador con "In Black Or White" y "Paid In Full" (con unos hipnóticos teclados casi góticos) o "It Won't Fade", que pese a las novedades siguen sonando a Sonata, con buenas melodías y todavía algo de velocidad (pero no esperéis las canciones rápidas de antaño), podríamos pensar que el cambio no es tan radical. Acostumbrados a que nos ofrezcan grandes baladas en sus discos, Sonata presentan aquí "Under Your Tree", quizá más aburrida y menos sentimental de lo que solían. Según avanza el disco, se alejan más y más de su sonido para adentrarse en lo que comentábamos anteriormente, devaneos progresivos, estructuras enrevesadas ad hoc, con temas como "Caleb", "The Vice" o "My Dream But A Drop Of Fuel For A Nightmare", esta última con coros y alguna que otra voz operística, "The Harvest", o la pretenciosamente teatral "Fly With The Black Swan". En fin, una apuesta arriesgada de la banda que no dejara indiferente a sus seguidores y que pese a ser un disco difícil de digerir, tras varias escuchas, eso sí, gana enteros porque pese a las críticas que se han hecho, incluido este blog, tiene momentos de calidad y buenas canciones.
