First single from upcoming album "Master of Fears". "Head in the Clouds" video directed and shot by Tuomas Kaisti. Editing, color grading and effects by Tuomas Kaisti. Shot on April 19, 2019 at Sompasaari in Helsinki, Finland. "Head in the Clouds" song & lyrics by Mikko Järvenpää, arranged and performed by Arkadia.
The song originates from the more energetic and joyful end of the upcoming album, musically taking the band back to its roots of clean vocals and rambling guitar and keyboard melodies. With the release of the single from the full-length album Master of Fears (to be released Fall 2019) the 16-year-old band seeks for wider audience and is hoping to have versatile cooperation with labels, promoters and fellow bands in the following years, enabling making a tour in Central Europe reality.
Since 2003, Arkadia has created melodic metal in it’s own terms, thrown 130 gigs in Finland and the Baltic States, and released two full-length albums in 2014 (Unrelenting) and 2016 (Aspirations & Reality), both typically reviewed as "good" or "excellent” in European and American media. In the spring of 2019, the band released its third album, Master of Fears, which includes 10 tracks that will take you deeper and further into Arkadia's diverse world, where melodic, energetic and melancholic elements combine with clean and growl vocals. The band's most influential influences have come from the Scandinavian death metal (including Sentenced and Soilwork), the more recent American metal (including Killswitch Engage), and the 80's British heavy metal (Iron Maiden).
