Because it had to be published:

11:24:08 AM Ty: So this band, right?
11:25:34 AM Erica: yeah?
11:25:55 AM Ty: It's like, I'm trying to figure out how this band came into existence.
11:26:46 AM Erica: What band?
11:26:55 AM Ty: Name's Sonata Arctica.
11:27:24 AM Ty: Here's my best guess.
11:27:35 AM Ty: There are a bunch of Finns sitting around one day.
11:27:42 AM Ty: "Let's form a metal band," one of them says.
11:27:49 AM Ty: "But all we have is a piano," another one protests.
11:28:03 AM Ty: "And we don't know anything about how to write music," says another.
11:28:24 AM Ty: The first one solemnly considers this for a moment.
11:28:27 AM Ty: "OK," he says.
11:28:45 AM Ty: "We'll have to start with just having a piano, then. We can pick up some electric guitars and all that jazz later."
11:28:58 AM Ty: The second one interrupts. "And do we get rid of the piano then?"
11:29:07 AM Ty: "No," says the first one. "We keep the piano."
11:30:50 AM Ty: The third one says, "We still don't know how to write music."
11:30:58 AM Ty: The first one ponders this for a moment. "Well..."
11:31:11 AM Ty: "I have an idea!" says the piano detractor.
11:31:19 AM Ty: The two turn to him, waiting expectantly.
11:31:57 AM Ty: "Well," he explains. "For some unexplained reason, there's a renaissance faire in Helsinki next weekend. We can go ask the renfaire people."
11:32:10 AM Ty: The other two stare blankly. "What's a renaissance faire?"
11:32:25 AM Ty: And I'm convinced that that's basically how this band happened.
11:32:48 AM Ty: They're a English-speaking Finnish symphonic power metal band, very high on renfaire-ish melodies and piano.
11:32:57 AM Ty: Quite good, really. But very weird.
