Re: StratoUnited

Actually he said he's going to first release a solo album in March 2020 and the rock opera about Jesus is going to be later. He also made some Hitler jokes. He hopes a temporary "Strato United" could take place so that they could release a live DVD with that lineup. But he says neither him nor the r...

There's a new interview with TT in the Finnish (yellow) press. Here's the URL if someone wants to try it with a translator.

Re: Tolkki's new band with Jari K. "Infinite Vision"

I would like to hear more about the Visions of Europe thing. It's the first time I've heard someone say it's re-recorded in studio. I believe Kotipelto once said he was getting worried over how much the band were drinking during the Visions tour, especially TT and JM. Maybe the performances weren't ...

Re: Loppuhuipennus klassisella kokoonpanolla?

Omasta mielestäni olisi aika kyseenalaista vetää viimeinen kiertue vanhalla kokoonpanolla. Se saisi Rolfin, Matiaksen ja Laurin näyttämään pelkiltä sijaisilta jotka saivat väistyä syrjään heti kun heitä ei enää tarvittu. Mahdollinen re-union pitäisi IMO toteuttaa mieluummin Helloweenin "Pumpkins Uni...

Re: Petition to change 'Stay-ee-ay' to 'Staaay'

Since Kotipelto wrote the lyrics how can this be about Tolkki's dog??? To my understanding, Tolkki always gave his Strato compositions a title, even if it was someone else who did the actual lyrics. And yeah, Kotipelto said the lyrics are about an impossible relationship. btw, "Rape" is a rather co...

Jens songs are amazing too and they never played more than "king of nothing" "winter skies" and "move the mountain" in their entire life. I hope that changes now, cause dragons and castles in the air are a huge contribution to the whole nemesis. They did play "Why Are We Here?" and "Glory of the Wo...
