Unia??:noidea:

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.

Unia is Dreams in Finnish, but there might also be another meaning.

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.

Maybe...but I was looking forward to a less simple name like Reckoning Night. That is a cool album name@

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".

It's a really "Sonatarctician" title indeed. I think this album will be like Reckoning Night, quite progressive...
