At this point I also kind of wish they'd release an album like Intermission again with all the bonus stuff since Elements

I don't think it's so much resting on his laurels as it is he's finally found the 'sound' that he's been chasing forever and can finally produce on a reasonable basis. No way he's making 'a lot' of mo ...

I should look before I post. I thought that was what you linked in the first post, instead it was the first song they released. Whoops. Laughing

The drummer looks like he's holding in a humongous du ...

I got a Nightwish vibe, again, at the beginning of the song. Thankfully not nearly as blatant as Antemortem. Good song for a single, I enjoyed it. I hope there's some meatier power metal type stuff on ...

One thing I do miss about the late 90s production is however Timo mixed the drums - I think he also used some VST samples on top of Jorg's playing, for ...

Hasn't been announced, just got the feeling, you know. It's almost that time, and they're reflecting on Eternal, so fingers crossed we'll hear some kind of news on going into the studio soon.

My, how time flies. We're due for another Stratovarius album soon.

Quick recap. The band has been on fire since 2009. Every two years we've gotten a new album. Looks like we might be waiting until ...

And yet by the time this was even going down, Sonata had moved on from that kind of Stratovarius-clone power metal. Hah.

Guess there were some ego-clash between Timo and Andre as well. But didn't Timo write a whole album worth of material in Siberia before they officially called it quits?

Timo never seemed to accept ...

I hope a new album comes this year, or early 2018 (looks more likely).

I'm getting nervous, though. Each album since Matias joined has been better and better than the last. I'm not sure how they ca ...

Trinity is not good. At all. Just my opinion.

Symfonia is decent but that title track is awful (so are the ballads) and the rest of the songs sound like Timo just couldn't shake the Strato writing ...

In my honest opinion, I think he should just hang it up for good. It's over. Clearly he needs to focus on his health more than anything else. God, I feel so bad for him. I wish I could help.

Love Land of Immortals. Giacomo's a great fit for this band. When Demons Awake - he does a very good job on that one, although that song's never been one of my favorites.
