I got a Nightwish vibe, again, at the beginning of the song. Thankfully not nearly as blatant as Antemortem. Good song for a single, I enjoyed it. I hope there's some meatier power metal type stuff on this album but whatever it is I'll be picking up a copy.

Did you say Nightwish vibe?

The drummer doesn't look like he's having any fun...

I should look before I post. I thought that was what you linked in the first post, instead it was the first song they released. Whoops. Laughing

The drummer looks like he's holding in a humongous dump.

I was expecting this release.

I didn't really really liked it... I'm feeling a bit let down by my favorite artist recently.

The thing that I despise the most is the copycat formulaic repetitive shit pop music does all the fucking time (still there's a bunch of really awesome pop music out there) and then I realize, this guys are doing exactly the same, sticking to a formula, and repeat , repeat...

I understand is hard to re invent the wheel nowadays with so much available, I just was hoping a bit more from this guys, specially Jani.

Sad

I think Jani is resting on his laurels right now.

As a musician once in a while I'll come up with something that blows me (and my audience) out of the water. But then it sounds so good, and nothing else I know stacks up to it, so I build on top of it as much as I can. And as long as people are mostly enjoying, and all my thoughts almost treat this original "discovery" like a permanent foundation that I can build things on top of rather than just another building block that can be interchanged with other good sounds... everything ends up sounding the same.

If you want an example of a musician who's actually good, compare how much Timo Tolkki's music varied with itself before 1997 and how little it did after 1997.

I'm willing to bet money this is where Jani is right now. Stormcrow and Eternal were well received and made him a lot of money. He's probably found a sound he really enjoys, if his recent output is anything to go by. So he's not really thinking about any sounds that are super super different from Stormcrow. And it shows in the music he continues to write.

You Really think that with the music, the musicianscollect huge tons of money?

i dont think this, warren curry have famous people as friend "Like garbage" famous band from 80's, maybe more old that stratovarius and he always said that is not more a busainess the music, for that he is not more a musician,

what do you think about that?

I don't think it's so much resting on his laurels as it is he's finally found the 'sound' that he's been chasing forever and can finally produce on a reasonable basis. No way he's making 'a lot' of money from it, but certainly his name is always on the tongues of the power metal world.
