Ads? Evil!?

The ads may stay or the ads may go, it depends on how well they work. The reason for even trying to use ads here on the stratoforum are complex. The bandwidth use is quite heavy. One idea is to move the forum to another server. Another is to have "unlimited expiry time". A third is to also resurrect...

Re: Is Heavy Metal Dead?

I think that in a traditional level, these bands (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath) are considered so much as pioneers of metal that people ultimately like them. I don't think that it has necessarily so much to do with music than them being traditional and classic metal bands. It is easy ...

Re: New album

It is quite useless to speculate on anything concerning the future of Stratovarius at the moment.

Currently things are pretty much on hold and as soon as there are some development for better or worse, we will let you know.

Re: Ankkarock. Stratovarius. Kuka menee?

Mä en ihan oikeasti käsitä tuota Ankkarockin hintajuttua. En ole enää vuosikausiin käynyt siellä vaikka tässä kokolailla lähellä asunkin. Muistan vielä ajat kun Ankkarockin sunnuntai oli ilmainen ja olihan siellä mieletön fiilis. Silloin taisivat bänditkin tehdä enemmän hyväntekeväisyyttä kun nykyää...

How often do you still play old classics?

I felt nostalgic today and took a few classics with me to work (Wasp's debut album and Ozzy's Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman).

I couldn't believe how good they sounded after a few years.

How often do you listen to older albums? What albums do you consider as being classics?

Itse kyllä kuulun myös Heavenly uuden levyn Dust to Dust faneihin. Ja sehän parani vanhetessaan. Ei kovin moni levy nykypäivänä enää toimi niin. Toinen loistava esimerkki levystä, joka paranee kuuntelu kuuntelulta on Nightwishin Once.
