With metal specifically, it's hard to keep writing songs with the same "bite" as your testosterone levels drop.

This comes as a surprise to me tbh. Thought it was just bog standard Eb minor plus a few keys up and down the circle of fifths

I've always ascribed the unique sound to the 80s sounding hollow drum ...

There's a lot of parallels to Stormcrow songs and other bands's songs, but I never caught the connection to I Have a Right. Good ear

It's probably not every time, but why does Tony sound like sometimes he uses "we" where he really means "I"? I remember TDoG came about because he was depressed around that time, w ...

As Tony needed a reprieve from writing power metal songs, it begs the question of what would have happened had Tony decided to release his alternative material under a different name?

There are songs on the 2009-2015 albums that sound like they could be from the classic era (none of the 3 from Enigma did in my opinion so I don't include 2018). But they can be split into two categor ...

It's funny, now that Talviyo is out, The Ninth Hour has really grown on me. I actually enjoy listening to it now.

Talviyo isn't bad but hasn't grown on me yet

Eternal/Enigma aren't in here and my tastes have moved around in the intervening years but I'd still put 030366 as my least favorite song and Elements as my favorite

Honestly given TT's latest work I don't want him to touch the next Strato album. The new Avalon record might change that opinion though
