Re: Jari Kainulainen

Don't get me wrong here, I really love Jari as a bass player BUT to replace a bass player in a band like Stratovarius won't make much difference to their music.

hopefully for me, Kinslayer isn't a nightwish tribute anymore, we have quite original songs (power prog). So lets wait to see Jens !
Have you guys released any album(s)?

Re: old tunes re-recorded?

Woule be nice. This is something that I'm always hoping for when bands release "best of" albums, that they should have re-recorded some old songs instead of just releasing the same old songs again and again. It WOULD be nice to hear Kotipelto sing some old songs that Tolkki used to sing BUT it would...

Add more songs from Elements part 2 in the setlist and everything will be just fine :) Know the difference for example is a GREAT song and would be wonderfull to experience live.
