Ninth Hour is fucking horrible and the fact that this album is going to continue largely in that vein makes me worried.

I think Tony said in some interview that the new one will be even slower, a b ...

I personally haven't liked anything Tolkki's done outside of Stratovarius except Symfonia, but even that record felt like a B-rate Stratovarius, which it basically was despite its killer lineup. Not a ...

The two songs I've heard so far blow. Again, nothing good since Symfonia, and even that was, at best, a bunch of good and half-decent Stratovarius songs played by a B-rate Stratovarius.

Sigh.

At the ProgPower acoustic set, Labyrinth also did some acoustic covers from R ...

This is a good album. Nice to have the bonus tracks together, the new songs sound great, and the orchestral versions of the 4 older songs are incredible. Brilliant work, Strato.

This is a pretty well known band and album in the power metal world Smile After all it is 20 years old. I just saw them play it in full at ProgPower USA earlier this month. Good stuff.

I'm also going to say Lauri. Just sounds like a Lauri song. It could be Matias but it doesn't sound quite guitar-y enough, if that makes any sense.
