Yep, we were talking about this snippet.

About Strato I must admit I'm not very comfortable with their "Black Album", I think it could be definitely better with less slow/mid tempo and re ...

So here we go again, Stratovarius are back with, hopefully, a new release in view.

Ideas about what we are going to listen? At the moment Jens, Timo and Matias are in Timo K. Studio aka "Tomb ...

I do not agree with you on this one: Avalon II is pure shit, not only the production.

Bland songs, mostly a copy/paste of other artists, bad production, in every song there's this awful pentatonic ...

Let me put the things in this way: There are no certainty in what kind of involvement Tolkki has on Avalon III, that's sure since Frontiers is a very low transparency label.

The label, on Facebook, said, while answering to a comment, that Tolkki stated that a misunderstanding happened.
