No kidding. What the christ does 'Unia' mean?

Interested in this album, but I hope it's a step back to their Ecliptica/Silence era.
Lemchor - 02.02.2007 at 20:55  
Unia means Dreams.

Latin maybe?
Keoren - 03.02.2007 at 13:40  
Unia is Dreams in Finnish, but there might also be another meaning.
Keoren - 03.02.2007 at 21:30  
I just heard 'Unia" also means 'The One' or 'The Only One' in female form in Latin. Maybe a double-meaning?

EDIT: Hmmm... some people who have studied Latin said that there is no word 'unia' in Latin, only 'unica'. Looks like it's 'just' Finnish afterall.
tulkas - 03.02.2007 at 21:41  
probably, there's a lot of words with more than one meaning so... very probably
Daru Jericho - 03.02.2007 at 22:53 very suitable.
kaos666 - 04.02.2007 at 17:46  
Maybe...but I was looking forward to a less simple name like Reckoning Night. That is a cool album name@
The Alchemist - 05.02.2007 at 02:49  
Great! hope to hear it soon. Sonata rules
Escapist - 05.02.2007 at 12:02  
Yeah! I am also waiting for this album! Unia sounds cool
Graveheart - 05.02.2007 at 23:57  
There is yet another meaning there... "Unia" actually means dreams when the word is an object. That is something people say in Finnish, meaning "(have) sweet dreams". So as a word it means "dreams", but as a phrase it means "sleep well" or "good night".
Escapist - 05.02.2007 at 23:59  
It's a really "Sonatarctician" title indeed. I think this album will be like Reckoning Night, quite progressive...
Remi.p3 - 13.02.2007 at 23:15  
hell yeah! ^^ *singing and dancing*
Thryce - 22.02.2007 at 15:17  
The new album has been mastered and is thus complete and done.
