Re: Classic live rock performance on DVD/BD?

End of an Era is awesome visual, awesome sound but Tarja sings pretty horrible all through the concert. One of the best live-dvd's i know is ofc Iron Maiden - Rock in Rio where both sound and videorecording is totally amazing. Evergrey have a live dvd thats is really cool aswell, A night to remember...

Re: Stratovarius on "Seven Sinners" tour w/ Helloween

Awesome! see you on the 8th of december! on the topic of a "big four" tour. It would more or less have to be a small half-day festival cause I wouldn't survive if Blind Guardian, Stratovarius, Gamma Ray and Helloween had to share one concert-night. It would be like 45minutes per band or something. I...

Re: Tarja

Tarja was alot better before Century Child, more power in her voice. At century child she started to develop a horrible vibrato which now is worse then ever. Tarja should have kept going with the powerful voice, now she's pretty much worthless. She doesn't hit a straight note, she sways/doesnt hit t...

Re: Koti`s voice?

It makes me wonder why he doesn't use some effects to ease his performance, some delay or so would make those high notes last longer so to say and improve the experinence for the audience. Many singers use some form of effects, i think bruce dickinson use it quite frequently (at least sounds like it...
