Re: Germans' asylum bid in America exposes the EU gulag

Oh, yes... I so much dislike to live here. It's unbelievable. It's so unfair.

Btw, Bissingen is 5 minutes per bike from where I grew up and lived for 20 years. Really, we are stuck in the middle ages there. Swabia is so much underdeveloped and behind.

They do sound like Stratovarius. As he said, in the end the fans somehow "decide". And in th...

Re: Higher we go full track

Hm, obviously I am the only one here that is not so enthusiastic about HWG. For me, "Deep Unknown" is one of the best Stratovarius-, even in general best Power Metal songs for a long time, it's really stunning! "Higher We Go" seems so much standard, 0815 to me. It would have fit on each Elements-alb...

Re: Confirmed Stratovarius shows

I'm not a fan of big festivals. I prefer seeing a band in club shows. It's somehow more.... "personal", more direct.

- and it gives me the possibility to see the band more often on one tour, for fewer money than on a big festival where bands like Stratovarius only get like 1 hour playtime.

Re: Video for "Deep Unknown"

And I find senseless pseudo-stories boring that are compressed in a 4-minutes-video, most of the time in absolutely no coherence to the lyrics of the song. No, I personally want to see the band playing! The best thing is seeing a band LIVE - and if not, then at least in a well-produced video. ;-)

Calm down, people. Everything will be fine. 8)

And, btw, why not? When Maynard James Keenan started his "side-band" besides "Tool", people have been worried too. And what was the result? Milestones in terms of music, named "Mer De Noms" and "Thirteenth Step". :) And Tool is still existing. ;-)

36 Crazyfists - The Tide And Its Takers


Seems to me like the band has grown up... 8) I like it very much, combines the aggressive elements of the first album with the more melancholic ones of the 2nd, and leaps the weak 3rd album.

After his really good Infinte-Artwork he made those cheesy Intermission- and Elements-Covers. And that rendering-stuff looks so damn artifical. No, I think it's time for something really new.
