New guitar player

The new guitarist could be someone relatively unknown...it could be a big surprise. TT is not easy to replace. He was the soulof Stratovarius IMO, and Kotipelto is, maybe, the balls of Strato. :?

Strato fan 'till the end...(?)

Sorry Timo Tolkki about those posts months ago, thant one about your body weight and all. I listened to the Strato collection "Chosen ones" today and it's great. My aunt said yesterday, as we were eating an easter lunch, that I have gained some weight. I take that as a compliment, being such a thin ...

Bloody hell

Music, a highly addictive substance, can be referred to as a drug. I think music, playing an instrument, that sort of thing is a good thing and can keep us kids out of trouble. Sports is a good thing as well. I smoke cigarettes and drink a lot of coffee. I've cut down on my alcohol consumption. Used...

Re: Omaha Mall Massacre: At Least Nine Dead

I am personally a little bit fascinated with the MIND of a person who is really losing a grip on his/her mind. It's not a happy thing to think about, a parent who kills their kids and then kills themselves. Swat the thought, if it makes you feel frightened, and move on the magic shop. I'm quite inte...

Kitarasankarit uudessa Soundissa

As an album it has a nice atmosphere. I liked the artwork. Sound was quite good too. We'll wait and see if it gets any votes.

Infinite. Maybe because I was very happy at the time of my life when I acquired the album, and I bought the poster around the same time as well. I know many slag it off because it's a "happy" album. The sound of the Infinite album was massive.

Paikallaanpolkeva ja melko kökkö biisi, ei iskenyt. Anette kuulostaisi paremmalta laulajalta kuin Tarja, mutta sehän jää nähtäväksi. :) Amaranth-biisi onkin sitten jo pirteämpi rallatus.
