Winterheart's Guild is the third studio album by the power metal band Sonata Arctica. It was released in 2003 through Spinefarm Records. In a 2014 interview, vocalist, keyboardist and songwriter Tony Kakko said inspiration for writing The Ruins of My Life came from the film Braveheart. In 2019, he would refer to the album's recording process as a nightmare because he only had two or three songs ready when the band went in the studio.

To some, Sonata Arctica's Winterheart's Guild may be everything that's wrong with power metal. To others, such as myself, the album is a fabulous offering from one of Finland's top power metal bands. It's a ton of fun to listen to, whether it be because of the passionate vocals, the exciting riffs, the interesting song writing, or the impressive keyboard solos. Sonata Arctica is always a band I enjoy listening to and it looks like they have a bright future in store for them. If you're a fan of this type of music and do not own thiswell what are you waiting for . The third Sonata Arctica album is probably the best they have ever released and these guys are getting closer and closer to Stratvorius , but I think Strato will always remain the number one band in the melodic metal genre. read more. werner van b June 23, 2003 19:14. Like many, I was waiting in anticipation for this new Sonata Arctica release, almost 100 sure that it would offer the same quality as its two predecessors. Now that Ive listened to the album multiple times, I havent changed my mind. Sonata Arctica Format: Audio CD. Please retry. Considering all aspects of Winterheart's Guild music, lyrics, production, etc. I honestly can't think of any flaws. It is some of Sonata Arctica's best work that I've heard, and makes me want to get the rest of their CDs as fast as possible. Love Sonata Arctica and this is a good album. Not on my favorites list as of yet but with a few more listens it might get up there. Read more
