I somewhat agree with that. Although I think Tolkki was far more skilled back in 1992 than Kupiainen. Tolkki is just so rusty on everything he does nowadays.

Lassila would bring the lost, true spirit of Stratovarius back to the band! Shame he got kicked by Tolkki.

I agree, Lassila back to Stratovarius. The quality of their music started to drop when he was kicked by Tolkki.

I think they would have gone very far. Slowly building up their fanbase with dark infused atmosphere would had done fruit sooner or later. Afterall, Stratovarius is mainly famous for Tolkki's guitar w ...

Jep, tummasävyiseen metallimusiikkiin Tolkki sopii mainionsti toisin kuin Kotipelto. Mahtipontiseen tuplabasaritykitykseen tietenkin sopii enemmän oopperalaulajatyyppinen laulaja kuten Kotipelto.
