Re: Forum upgrade

Yea! (PMs are still here btw) I guess Strato Forum is like a time capsule, it caught some part of time that means still a lot, then life went on and everyone followed their own path but there is still somewhere on the internet that place where we used to sp4m. Habby 18 years abbiversary Stratoforum :)

Re: Next-Gen Consoles

I'd go for Wii U because I already have a killing PC to play games.
Nintendo seem to be the only one in the list who bring something different compared to PC games

But PS4 would definitely be the best choice for non PC-gamers.

Re: Old Stratovarius.com!!

I might still have some pages from the 1997's official website somewhere in my archives (when it used to be www.netlife.fi/~strato).
I also have printed interviews and tabs from that area in some folder.

I also found the my old Distant Skies pages (1997) in some other archives.

Re: Recording music

I'm working on writing some music, but it doesn't sound that great when I record it. Granted, my recording gear probably has something to do with it, but even when I plug my amp straight into my computer, it still loses some of the "edge" or distortion to it. What do you guys use to record music th...

Re: Human Temple

Human Temple of course! Amazing AOR band.
I saw them live in Kuopiorock festival in 2004. Uncredible singer.

It's a real shame they are not that popular.

I'll get the new album. Their previous effort Insomnia was full of hit songs.
