A warmhearted thank you for "Kill it with Fire".
I just heard it on youtube and now I think I have to order the official japanese CD.

Several songs on Nemesis seem to be very well written (until now I was only able to listen to youtube because the CD is not availabe yet):
I love "Dragons", "Fireborn", "Unbreakable" and "If the story is over".

Especially "Kill it with Fire" offers many of the best Stratovarius-, Johansson Brothers- and Malmsteen-Trademarks combined! This song with its Keyboard-"overkill" Very Happy is outstanding. It is the coolest neoclassicel keyboard arrangement I have heard in years.

A big thank you for that! I love it!!!

True, that was exactly what came to my mind while hearing the song. Jens all around, what a fantastic song, seems like a tribute.

Open letters are gay.
Couldn't you have made this post without calling it an open letter?

greetings from panda express,

Arnold Layne

Whatever it may be..... This song is a true neo classical powerhouse but not stagnant.... Proof positive that they still have their traditional chops in check! Hail!

Kill It With Fire is magnificent! That keyboard solo is indeed funny. As is the outro. Lovely neoclassical Strato song.

I just heard it.

How on EARTH this song is not part of the album???
Top#3 of the new Strato era, according to my humble oppinion.

Japanese people always get all the awesome bonus tracks. America just gets 50 chicken nuggets with barbeque sauce.

Isn't it easier just to buy a Japanese edition? The shipping may be costly, though. Does anyone know how much, by the way?

A lot! Through amazon anyway. If you buy it through ebay or something those asian sellers will only charge $3 shipping and you might get it in a month or so, but amazon.co.jp only offers fast international shipping for like $20 + $4 per item (so it makes sense to buy many items at once).
