Re: Enigma: Intermission Pt.2 opinions

Welp Enigma: Intermission Part II it out! Since most of us in someway or the other have gotten the rare or bonus tracks on this album...I will of course start with the 3 new songs. All of which are strong in their own right. Enigma- Definitely my favorite out of the three, this song is perfection. T...

Re: Dragons and Giants

I noticed that too! Its almost like a spiritual twin to Dragon. Its almost like the left it off the main release because of the similarity. Still an extremely strong track....Love it! :D

Re: Eternal Reaction and Reviews

So I'm currently on my 3rd listen of Eternal and I have to say that this is their best in 15 years!!!! For myself, Eternal is the first album in a long time that I am able to love something about every song.... The album has this powerful feel about it! Thank you Stratovarius for this masterpiece!

Eternal Reaction and Reviews

Now that Eternal has been released in Japan and we are days from the European and North American Releases ( and I'm sure some of you have heard the album in its entirety), its time to get your thoughts......... :D

you can already see MY ETERNAL DREAM video HERE: http://www.radiorock.fi/#!/post/55f1395ba8942203006642c6 Okay! Although the video was technically beautiful, it didn't make sense to me personally.

Re: "Eternal" cover art work & tracklist

They actually put the album available for download on Japanese Amazon last night, I've listened to it today. Well, I liked it a lot. I think I was a bit more excited about Nemesis, but that is because all those experiments seemed intriguing. Here we have a very classic Stratovarius, although, I thi...

Three days to go (Japan release date) and still no album leak! <3 :D I am sooooo ready for this release.....I order my Japanese version hoping that they may ship it out prior to the release. I have bought two copies plus a digital version. They are keeping this one under wraps as long as they can.....

Re: Stratovarius confirmed for Full Metal Cruise III

Even though its my favorite band, its been a longtime since I had a song send chills done my spine. This should be a show opener instead of being the middle the set though. The air in the crowd was electric. This track is going to be a single :shock: ? This is the probably the first time since black...

Re: Lost Without a Trace [New Song]

:shock: I live for this song! Completely different vibe from Shine in the Dark....Has single potentinal well. Wierd thing is, and just my thought, it reminds of a heavier and darker 4000 Rainy Nights. I love the solo and th vibe. I am really looking forward to this album!

The interview was cool! Of course you could not anything from the new album but from what the guys said- there will be songs that harken back to the traditional power Strato sound and songs that are more modern! Can't wait! :shock:

Re: Shine In The Dark- First Single from Eternal (Review)

They took what made Nemesis so acclaimed and brought it together with a definite nod to singles like "HHaL", "SOS", and "Darkest Hours"..... The pre-chorus and chorus are lyrically and musically beautiful, the solo is short but enough Strato wizardry, and what I love most about this songs is how the...

Re: "Eternal" cover art work & tracklist

Just caught some of it on Radio Rock! Beautiful and strong song- A hybrid between the heaviness of Nemesis and earworm style of "Hunting High and Low" left breathless- Hope to hear the whole songs oon! It was only a radio edit it said, so I can only imagine what the album version is like
