Re: New version of Infinite Visions?

Karjalan kunnailla is a traditional Finnish song. A live recording of it plays on the Infinite Visions during the closing credits. Personally, I don't really care for this particular rendition as Kotipelto struggles to stay on tune. It's a nice little curiosity though, I guess.

Re: Where is mr Tolkki????

I reckon he's quite busy actually, readying himself for the next tour, discussing business with RR's management, composing for the new album etc. Last, but not least I think Tolkki and his management have some legal business to work out...with Frontiers Records...with the remaining Strato members......

Re: Do you play an instrument?

Just a side remark: Many people seem to think that certain metal-oriented keyboard players (Rudess, Pinella, Jens etc.) could play any classical piece if they wanted. The thing is, a great portion of classical music can't be played by anyone, without years of rigorous practice that is. Some of the w...
