After „Unia“ Sonata Arctica release another album. Oh wait, the band’s called Vision Divine and hails from Italy but like the men around Tony Kakko the guys have committed themselves to progressive power metal. The album “The 25th Hour”, which is appropriately released on the 25th of June, was produced by none less than Timo Tolkki (Stratovarius) and thus the musical connection is re-established. And as it should be for a Prog record there’s of course a concept behind und thus the songs deal with the diary of the man who already appeared in Vision Divine’s 2004 album “Stream of Consciousness”. For those who like Prog Powermetal a la Sonata Arctica or Dream Theater this record, which with 45 minutes is astoundingly short, is just the right thing.
