Re: True Religion

That's very nice to believe, Alienred, but it's too idealistic. I believe the world can be saved, but I'm being realistic, it can also be destroyed and we have done irreversible damage to the earth at an exponential rate: mass extinctions, ruining of top soil, desertification and salinization, forei...

Re: True Religion

Universe (Nature) will give us a very hard lesson if we wont change our ways on our own - it will hit us very hard - it will force us to change. The only question is whatever path we will choose? We could do it comfortably or its going to be the path of suffering. I really hope it will be the forme...

Re: True Religion

I appreciate your concerns, AlienRed. I read the first couple pastes by Osho and Krishnamurti is one my heroes. You are doing all you can which is change yourself and hopefully another soul will hear and understand what you have to say...but the Universe does not remain silent and will continue tryi...

Re: - Kotipelto Rulez Topic -

Fuck, Jani Liimatainen rules! And I think Kotipelto's vocal performance on Cain's Offering was some of his best. I wish I could see them both on stage! How about a Strato/Cain's Offering co-headlining gig??? ;)

Re: 10 years in stratoforum

hanging out with Burning Reflection at the last Strato gig (hey, were you at the Nightwish gig in January? Because I thought I saw you there, but you were too far away for me to tell!); and still feeling bad that I was probably not very fun company that evening, as I didn't know until the last minu...

Re: Jorg Farewell Tour

I watched the I walk to my own song performance at the Tavastia gig...was kind of disappointed that jorg only did the double bass stuff once during the solo :( that's like the coolest part! Don't get me wrong, you rock, but this tour's your time to shine!

The songs have powerful messages backed by emotional musicianship and climatic composition. I hear some similar elements from Images an...

Re: ¿Is Elysium the Best Strato Album Ever?

I still say the more you listen to it the more it grows on you, I used to think it was just a really good album, now I think it's legendary. This is however just my opinion I had the opposite experience. I think my initial excitement was just from having a new Strato album and now that I listen to ...

Re: First Stratovarius song

found out about Strato through Children of Bodom. I think Alexi mentioned Visions as one of his favorite albums and Janne said one of his favorite songs was paradise (both claims circa 2000ish). I downloaded a bunch of songs from Strato and the rest is history

Re: Best lyricist in metal?

I think some of Tolkki's lyrics are some of the most brillliant I've ever read. I also like some of John Petrucci's and Kevin Moore's lyrics from Dream Theater. I like Kakko's and Tuomas Holopainen, and I really like Liimatainen's lyrics on Cain's Offering.

^ nice description!

Polaris has grown on me a lot! I think all the songs are good, but I really like the compositions by Jens and Lauri on Polaris; every song is a crescendo of music epicness, I love it! Can't wait to buy Elysium and hear what you guys are describing!
