Did you know that Tony wrote this song back in 1996?

I also thought that when I saw the video! :wink:

Btw, The production of the video reminds me a bit of Nightwish's Amaranth video. (The same type of colours, the band playing in a kind of cave with plants and stuff...) Does anyone know if it is from the same director?

This was the first time I heard the entire song and I have to say I like it a lot.
From folkish intro to top-notch lead parts to very traditional Sonata-chorus that'll surely grow on me even more after more listenings it's just what I was hoping for. :)

I couldn't find info about the director, but I doubt it's Antti Jokinen, who has probably been too busy directing his Hollywood-debut The Resident.

I think, really, that this album will be good!
Through the storms we've wandered
Many mountains we have climbed
But all the bad times are behind
The road is free - I'm coming home

Great, but I decided to wait for the album to be released before listening it, the same goes for Ensiferum and Epica, cant wait to hear all those albums!

I really dig those supermelodic power metal anthems with a very serene interpretation. They are getting more and more common these days - bet they are actually a pretty new invention? A great, pleasant song anyway, yeah. Maybe I should buy the album after all if they're gonna release stuff like this (and much more... I'd take those "hard" Sonata songs as a challenge. So far I've succeeded in Power of One that's become easily my favorite Sonata tune).
