SARDIN

Welcome to SARDIN. SARDIN is a website designed for all the Sonata Arctica collectors out there. Here you can find information about most of the releases, pictures of them and even some interesting details. The list is probably never perfect (see the FAQ), but at least a good start. In case of you have information about some releases not listed here etc., feel free to contact since all help is appreciated.

Choose the album to view a list of all versions. Click the catalog number to get further information about the specific release. Here's only official Sonata Arctica releases, ie. no bootlegs or demos. Also, compilation albums, guest appearances, side projects etc. were dropped since it would be nearly impossible to list all of them. This list concentrates strictly on Sonata Arctica releases.
