My, how time flies. We're due for another Stratovarius album soon.

Quick recap. The band has been on fire since 2009. Every two years we've gotten a new album. Looks like we might be waiting until next year this time. Matias and Lauri have opened up a whole new dimension for Stratovarius's sound. Rolf has been a welcome addition - not sure how much songwriting input he's had on the last couple of albums, but his playing is extraordinary and he sounds like the perfect fit for the band.

On the next album I hope Jani gets some input as he usually does, but with less of a Cain's Offering sound. I like Shine In The Dark, don't get me wrong, but it crosses over into Cain's Offering territory quite apparently. I hope to hear more modern spins on the classic Stratovarius sound - Rise Above It, My Eternal Dream, etc. - and some other quirky songs like Man In The Mirror, and hopefully another epic tune.

Announced or just the feeling? I saw Timo say "probably next year" on FB, but that was also the plan for Revolution Renaissance, so who knows.

There wasn't a single bad track on Eternal, but I don't want to see the guys get complacent. All my favorite albums have been the ones where the guys really push the envelope. Episode (first one with modern power metal sound), Elements, Pt. 1 (incorporating a much more symphonic sound), and Nemesis (bringing in more keyboards/synths in a way you didn't really hear in the 2000s). If I want to hear the same sound as Eternal, I'll just listen to Eternal Smile

let's venture into progressive and let those keyboards soar! Maybe a couple fast power metal songs, a midtempo sing-along, a ballad, but then maybe 4-5 prog metal songs (with some Scandinavian folk elements thrown in for good measure).

Hasn't been announced, just got the feeling, you know. It's almost that time, and they're reflecting on Eternal, so fingers crossed we'll hear some kind of news on going into the studio soon.

I wouldn't mind a few progressive tunes, or an instrumental, it's been a loooong time since we've had one of those. I'd like to hear them play something in an odd meter.

About two years in fact! But I'd love to hear a more shreddy one in the vein of the "Strato____" songs and Holy Light.

Maybe one of these days they'll bring back the string section. They were going to have actual strings in one of the last two albums, weren't they?

I just want a decent mix. Is that so much to ask?

Elysium and Eternal both sound atrocious.
