Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

Enjoy! ( I guess!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awdi2dTlvbI Unfortunately, as Infinite Visions did not meet it's crowdfunding goal there will be no album and the band will not continue. As a farewell to the fans, Infinite Visions are posting the five songs that were recorded for their demo, inclu...

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

I'm surprised that Timo doesn't see this type of stuff coming, also, "I'll contact them shortly" ...why the hell drop names like that if you haven't contacted them before making this low key announcement...my god.

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

Generic, sure. I didn't hate it, there are no vocals, maybe that can improve the overall experience, I was also distracted by the drummer's left foot, what's up with that dance, never seen a double bass pedal technique like that. ha. Anyway, this project is going to fail cause you can't come out wit...

I didn't watch the vid, too long and starts very boring, but damn, it's hard to see somebody that inspired you so much fall so deep, really hurts.
and yeah, seems like people around timo don't help a lot, just allow him to do shit.

TT: Pay now, get new music in a year!

So this is the new crowdfunding gimmick for mr.Tolkki & friends (Infinite Visions) the whole thing is a mess, I don't know who's helping Timo to put this kind of stuff together but for damn sure they have no idea of what they're doing, I don't want to be a hater but damn, look at that thing! a year ...

Best song TT has done since leaving Strato

Hey, so in your opinion what's the best thing (recording/album/song) Timo Tolkki has done since leaving Strato. for me "Enshrined in my memory" from Avalon 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98mD8hvKKso haven't heard the whole album in a while but it's pretty decent. In Paradisum close second. just f...

Re: STRATOVARIUS LOT OF VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE

But part of what he said was true, still. He mentioned certain tensions between him, JM and TK since beginning. Also he said he plans to end the band in just a few years, possibly after two albums with the new line up. And as it turned out, he did write exactly two more albums for Strato, even thou...

Re: What bands / albums do you recommend?

There's a french band called "Heavenly" the first album was really good, Kai Hansen makes an appearance, it's closer to Helloween than Stratovarius tho' "Coming from the Sky" its the name of that album. Also a Japanese band called "Concerto Moon" very much like Ynwgie Malsteen stuff, and lastly Kens...

Well Corona virus its destroying our sanity right? why else open this old wounds? for what its worth, I think that TT giving all stratovarius rights to TK, JJ, and JM was just a way to "prove them wrong" about their "greed" statement. looking back that was a bad move because he basically gave away h...

So, is dreamspace weird or not?

also, it seems like TT is hittin' rock bottom, wonder if he's gonna get help for former bandmates.

I wish him the best if I could help him ill do it, but I think he wants help in his own terms which is basically closing doors for anybody.
