So Rolf's been in the band almost 7 years, he's surely not the 'new guy' anymore is he? Laughing

It's really cool to think about where Stratovarius is and how far they've come, as well as how much the music has evolved. Literally - it's not like they've changed enough to be unrecognizable, but th ...

I agree with the vast majority of Sentinel's points. Good stuff right there, right on the money. I will add that I'm okay with the lack of speed, as that's an element of new Strato that I don't inhere ...

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.

Nothing's inherently wrong with it, on its own, but I think it has aged horribly. It's also pretty amateur song ...
