cover sonata arctica xmasFinnish melodic metal heroes SONATA ARCTICA release a very special Christmas gift for their fan base today: The new single called »Christmas Spirits« is out now via Nuclear Blast. »Christmas Spirits« is available as digital download and as a limited edition EP, only available at the Nuclear Blast Online Shop.

The band commented on it:

“Hello everyone out there!
Christmas is just around the corner so we decided to cheer you all up with a nice Christmas story. “Decided” might be a bit strong in this context since the ‘Christmas Spirits’ song has been around for about ten years now, we just never had the time to record it. Finally during the »Pariah’s Child« sessions we managed to do the basic tracks and this autumn we finished the song. I guess the main reason for the delay was getting the lyrics done, it’s nearly impossible to get into the Christmas mood unless it’s actually… you guessed it, Christmas. Hats off to Tony since he did it anyway, this autumn, and without any snow, we might add. Be that as it may, here’s our latest piece of art: ‘Christmas Spirits’!

Merry Christmas to everyone & cheers,
SONATA ARCTICA”
