Re: black metal

However, the fact that BM is not mainstream doesn't remove the validity, quality or musicality of BM (which was your argument, I believe). to me, the sound of BM has no musicality, because it seems that the musician is just mindlessly hitting on his instrument repetitively. Especially the song I pu...

Re: black metal

I don't think the majority of my countrymen despise Stratovarius. I made my mom listen to Black Diamond, and she liked it, and my mom doesn't have much experience in western music. About your wine argument, I think music in general is like wine. But I think that you need to drink a lot of Immortal ...

Re: black metal

It comes down to different tastes. And like it has been mentioned, it is all subjective. Everyone's palate in music is varied and is built upon their social upbringing and life experiences. In my case, I am the biggest Power Metal fan but I have been slowly (through the years) been introducing more ...

Re: I finally saw Stratoivarius live

Nice! I "discovered" Stratovarius in 2003 by accidentally downloading Hunting High and Low. They quickly became my favorite band. They rarely play in Canada; they played here in 2005 and 2009 but I missed both tours as I was a poor student in University. The first time I saw Stratovarius was last y...

Re: Montréal, september 13 2014 ^^

Well, seems like I'll be going back to Montreal if they are not coming to NY.
Last week I drove 3 hours to see Gaelic Storm, of course I'll be driving 6 hours to see Stratovarius!


Besides...Montreal is awesome.

Re: Rhapsody of Fire - Dark Wings of Steel

Oh, this is great news!

So, will this be the start of a 3rd saga? Because they finished The Dark Secret, right?

They have so many Sagas, and so many dragons and so many elements...Whatever, as long as the music is good.

You know, all these bands splitting. Shit. What's wrong with these guys? I wonder if the last albums had any to do with his real decision. They were not really "kamelot-style" metal, but way more gothic and not as good as the old stuff. Well, there's one good thing we can get from this... Kamelot wi...

They had creativity...They mixed a common prefix with a common suffix :D
Which in turn makes it a common name, hence, the lack of creativity.

Good lineup!!! Has Matos gained some weigh lately? Guy looks fat. Anyhow. He's a damn great singer and a incredible upgrade from tolkki's last singer. And Kainulainen is back! Yes! Great! He's a great bassist. Full of life on the strings and dead on scene. Anyhow, this looks like another great band ...
