  • Vocal Coach ANALYZES Sonata Arctica Tony Kakko Analysis


    EDIT: Sorry about the 'cons' list not showing up. There is a glitch in my editing software that has caused this to happen more than once now. I'll try to make sure it doesn't happen again. List of cons:
    1) Relies on force and pressure on top end of range
    2) Uses nasality to combat the excessive pressure
    3) Physically forces vibrato, rather than letting it be a byproduct of good technique

    Thank you so much to my Patron Samu for supporting me! He requested Tony Kakko, and here it is! I hope you all enjoy. Tony was an interesting singer to analyze, as he fits incredibly well in Sonata Arctica, but also possesses what I feel to be a very unique skillset.

  • Dark Sarah feat. Tony Kakko - Light In You


    Dark Sarah feat. Tony Kakko - Light in you is a last song of the Behind the Black Veil album. Released 2015 through Inner Wound Recordings.

    The story of Light in You:

    Sarah hides her self from Dark Sarah into the woods. She feels confused and alone, even the moonlight has left her. Suddenly Sarah sees a light, she falls down in awe of the silvery light in the sky. The moon has come (Tony Kakko). He tells Sarah that he has come to guide her to a new path in her life and he still sees the light in her. In the white wilderness they fall in love. However there is a shadow upon them - the moon fades away when the day comes. They can only wait for the sunrise.

  • STILL ALIVE by Black Sun


    Black Sun's new song 'Still Alive' featuring various Finnish legends marks the band's rebirth.

Producer NINO LAURENNE arranged Finnish metal legends and talents like TONY KAKKO, LORDI, NOORA LOUHIMO, PASI RANTANEN, and ELIAS VILJANEN (Sonata Arctica), NETTA LAURENNE (Smackbound), JUKKA PELKONEN (Omnium Gatherum) and ASIM SEARAH (Damnation Plan / Wintersun) to feat in this powerful and catchy metal hymn.

  • Tony Kakko - Ruling The World


    Into The Light was made by RAGE composer and multi instrumentalist Victor Smolski. It was him who composed, arranged and recorded the album, with all in all ten songs based on a thrilling, solid Power Metal foundation. But the real highlights are the participants behind the microphones: Victor gathered a conglomeration of ten singers whose bands have been signed to NUCLEAR BLAST in the past 20 years or still are on the label's roster, among them Hansi Kürsch of BLIND GUARDIAN, NIGHTWISH's former singer Tarja Turunen, EDGUY's Tobias Sammet and HELLOWEEN'S Andi Deris. And here are the song played by Tony Kakko: Ruling the World

    Song: Ruling the World

  • Nightwish & Tony Kakko


    Nightwish & Tony Kakko ( Sonata Arctica ) - Beauty And The Beast


    Remember the first dance we shared?
    Recall the night you melted my uglyness away?
    The night you left with a kiss so kind
    Only a scent of beauty left behind

    Ah, dear friend I remember the night
    The moon and the dreams we shared
    Your trembling paw in my hand
    Dreaming of that northern land
    Touching me with a kiss of a beast

    I know my dreams are made of you
    Of you and only for you
    Your ocean pulls me under
    Your voice tears me asunder
    Love me before the last petal falls

    As a world without a glance
    Of the ocean's fair expanse
    Such the world would be
    If no love did flow in thee
    But as my heart is occupied
    Your love to me now has to die
    Forgive me, I need more than you can offer me

    Didn't you read the tale
    Where happily ever after was to kiss a frog?
    Don't you know this tale
    In which all I ever wanted
    I'll never have
    For who could ever learn to love a beast?

    However cold the wind and rain
    I'll be there to ease up your pain
    However cruel the mirrors of sin
    Remember, beauty is found within

    ...Forever shall the wolf in me desire the sheep in you...

  • The vocal range of Tony Kakko


    This video contains outdated research and some inaccurate note pitches and terminology. Visit for the latest discussion and information.

    Tony Kakko is best known for his singing in Sonata Arctica and Northern Kings. He is a great high baritone with an incredible raspy timbre in his high register, a silky-smooth mid-range and booming lows. He has the ability to sing in many different styles; from aggressive, to soothing, to even yodelling.

    Time for some notes! Starting with the mid-highs:

    1. 0:00 - Great G#4 sliding up to B♭4. Song is Letter to Dana (live).
    2. 0:30 - Melody from Wacken performance of Gravenimage, top note is B4.
    3. 0:53 - A looooong G#4 from a sound check.
    4. 1:09 - Powerful singing from Northern Kings song Killer. Top notes are B4.
    5. 1:26 - Incredible C#5, then sustained B4 from a live performance of It Won't Fade.
    6. 1:46 - High passage from Wildfire in which Tony hits a falsetto A5, some G#5s and a quick full F#5. A nice sustained B4 comes afterwards
    7. 2:13 - Strong, sustained B4 from live performance of Draw Me.
    8. 2:25 - Singing up to C#5 in Shamandalie.
    9. 2:45 - E♭5, then C#5 in Ain`t Your Fairytale.
    10. 3:00 - Great screamy F5 and E♭5s from live show of It Won't Fade.
    11. 3:11 - Raspy E♭5s from outro of a live show. Vodka's what we need!
    12. 3:22 - C#5s and E5s from live performance of 8th Commandment.
    13. 3:32 - Short E5 from Wacken performance of Gravenimage, followed by a raspy non-modal scream reaching G#5.
    14. 3:51 - Long E5 from My Land.
    15. 4:02 - Great E5s from an acapella version of Fullmoon
    16. 4:26 - Melody E5s in the chorus of Weballergy.
    17. 4:49 - Raspy E♭5 followed by sustained A4 sliding up to B4. Then some great singing up to a full F#5 and ending on a full E5.
    18. 5:20 - Chants with the crowd reaching F5.
    19. 5:32 - Short D5, followed by a melody-line F5! Song is White Pearl, Black Oceans
    20. 5:52 - Another crowd-chant, topping at E5.
    21 .6:06 - Short, head-voiced F#5 from Blank File.
    22. 6:11 - Singing up to a quick full F#5 in Destruction Preventer.
    23. 6:20 - Smooth gliding up to a full F#5, and falsetto G#5 in Destruction Preventer (there's an old live clip where he goes sharp on the F#5s, hitting a full-voiced G5!).
    24. 6:40 - Screaming up to a powerful raspy falsetto G5 in The Dead Skin, followed by a raspy F5.
    25. 7:03 - Sung F#5s and a quick, head voice-sounding G#5 in Blank File
    26. 7:22 - Unfortunately for you... this makes me your God... awesome raspy falsetto scream reaching A5 in a live version of Don't Say a Word!
    27. 7:45 - Falsetto A5 while messing around in the intro of Fullmoon.

    Now for some low notes!

    28. 7:51 - Soft singing down to B2 in Tallulah.
    29. 8:02 - More soft singing to B♭2 in The Misery.
    30. 8:10 - Strong E2 in Replica 2006.
    31. 8:13 - Strong lows down to E2 and B1 in live version of Juliet.
    32. 8:21 - Growly E2s in studio version of Juliet.
    33. 8:39 - Booming spoken lows in outro of live version of White Pearl Black Oceans. Lowest note is D2.
    34. 8:57 - F#2 and C#2 in the background of Deathaura
    35. 9:04 - The Word's Forgotten, the Words Forbidden, reaches C#2
    36. 9:15 - Strong F#2 sliding down to C#2 in live sound check.
    37. 9:26 - Tony sings an octave lower in Tallulah and achieves a strong C#2. Deep, bassy timbre here.
    38. 9:40 - Strong D2 sliding down to an A1 after some yodelling in a live show!
    39. 9:43 - Live version of Replica reaching C2
    40. 9:49 - Listen closely to the background for the repeated phrase behind it all..., with whispered B1s

    New info: Tony hits a B♭5 in the intro of Da Best Song Ever (watch?v=kS3HYU3TOiw)
    Also hits a (very random) C6 in The Vice, 1m 42s in.
    Also hits a G6 in a 'silly' cover of Hocus Pocus
    Hits full-voiced G5s in some old live performances of Destruction Preventer

  • Sonata Arctica- interview with Tony Kakko



    I've been listening to 3 metal bands each day since I was 12 years old. If I were sad, their music would lift me up. If I were happy, their music would enhance my feelings of joy. Even as a child I said that one day I'll be having interviews with these amazing musicians whose talents I admire so much. Tony Kakko of Sonata Arctica is one of those people whom I've been admiring for the last 10 years, so you can imagine how nervous I have been when my dream finally came true and I had a chance to conduct an interview with him... Felt like a seventeen year old, conducting my first interview all over again... Puzzled, muddled, nervous and happy all at the same time. Every time I have interviews with Sonata Arctica I disappoint myself as a journalist (but I can't help it... It's hard for me to stay focused and objective while chatting with them).
