PostForum: Stratovarius and related bands talk in English   Posted: Fri Apr 27, 2018 2:47 am   Subject: Fright Night
It's a horrible album, but I still cherish it as the origin of Stratovarius. Other than Tolkki, it has zero relevance to the band's legacy.
Which is worse: Fright Night or the self titled Stratovari ...

Oh... also, what's wrong with Fright Night? It has some really nice more rocky songs.

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

I don't like the production and half the songs I can't tell apart, but I really enjoy the last two songs.

I'm not optimistic about TT coming back. But my music would sound 100% different if at all without Timo's influence. Good luck to you wherever you are.

The problem with Visions is quite simple.
As you said, it was recorded under Noise Records but, in 2005, they've signed with Sanctuary Records after been under Nuclear Blast for a while.

SA is just not the same without Jani.

Cain's Offering delivers what's missing from SA. Wish it can become a permanent band with a dedicated singer.

I mean, Cain's Offering is more Stratovarius I ...

IIRC getting a US work visa is a pain in the ass now, so it's way more profitable to keep hitting the same countries in Europe with the occasional stop in South America and Japan. ...
