Re: An interview with Jari Kainulainen

I´ve understood that another main reason for leaving Strato was also Jari´s commitment to his wife and kid. He probably saw enough heavy touring with Stratovarius. I don´t quite think this Mess will break through worldwide. Or who knows... As to any compunctions about leaving Strato, I quess leaving...

Re: Within Temptation - The Silent Force

Well, Taim, that´s your opinion. I agree that WT has become a bit more commercial sounding band and that certain similarities to Evanescence can be found... But I strongly disagree about Silent Force being "lame" or that WT would only be aping E. I think the album is full of wonderful compositions a...

Re: Dimebag Darrel Killed

This f-kin sucks!!! Just yesterday I was watching Pantera´s DVD and thought "Man, that guy is great!". Goddamnit, he was one of my fav guitarists in one of the best bands in the world!

Unbelievable... :(

Within Temptation - The Silent Force

I´ll do some arvertising here too :wink: Anyone here who likes the band? I remember there were some... Well anyway, I highly recommend everyone to check out the new and incredible WT album! By far the best album released by any band this year. The debut album Mother Earth was very good, but it seems...

Re: Helloween Guitarrists

Umm... how am I supposed to answer using that list? ???

But the best guitarist is Weiki. I like his style, there are a lot rock influences to it. I like his sound too. Grapow had (and still has) too flat sound...

Re: WHOS THE BEST GUITAR PLAYER, TOLKKI, ROMEU OR PETRUCCI?

Not one of the smartest threads, but I as a guitarist I have to answer this... Petrucci Romeo ---- ---- ---- Tolkki Got the point? :wink: Tolkki isn´t really a top3 guitarist technically, but he still is one of my fav musicians. Tolkki has done some great solos, but his soloing is a bit too "limited...

Re: Hymn To Life

Hymn to life is an important album to me because of it´s melancholy, yet positive and hope-giving atmosphere. At least that´s how I feel about it. Many times when things get fucked up or I´m feeling down, I start thinking about the things that Timo sings about on Hymn to life. Somehow it makes me fe...

Re: Who wants a new solo album from Tolkki?

Definitely a new solo album!!! But I´m quite positive that it wouldn´t be very "metallic" if Tolkki was to release one. I liked most of the songs on Hymn to life very much... it´s a very diverse album. On the other hand, I think H.t.l. was something special and unique for Tolkki, so whatta hell of a...

Re: Top 3 Worst Stratosongs (That you have heard)

Hmm... Maybe not the worst three, but songs I can´t stand anyway:

-Anthem of the world
-Know the difference (except for the kick-ass solos!)
-Fantasia

Re: which is your favorite tolkki solo

Haven´t been writing here for a while... but back again :) These are really good and stand out from many others: -Chasing shadows -Hold on to your dream -Kiss of Judas The lead in H.o.t.y.d., however, is a pretty direct copy from Gary Moore´s After the war (if I remember correct). So a small minus f...
