Re: Jens Johansson

Some of you people REALLY don't get it. That mp3 file I really like is here http://www.heptagon.se/audio/016_10.mp3 The keyboard stuff starts about 5 minutes into the track. I can guarantee that if Vadim or any of these other clowns put this on half speed and figured out how it worked it would do th...

Re: Jens Johansson

I quote too, as I think also these same things about Jens. Except an addition that he is totally incredible player. Just listen his work on Glory of the World or Sonata´s The Cage for example. 8) His sense of humour is really special. :lol: Someone mentioned here Janne Wi/arman. He is fast, but I t...

Re: Riots in France&The Problems that Led To Them

Well. I agree that many things were not fair in Algeria at that time, that french people had more rights and so on. Still, was it a reason to say "Algeria is for Algeria. You french people, have nothing to do here, go back to your country, or we'll kill you!". Do you imagine if France would do exac...

Re: Riots in France&The Problems that Led To Them

(to sum up : the same kind of riots happened in Algeria 50 years ago - in Algeria there were about half Algerian, half French livers - the Algerian decided that the country belongs to them, so they kicked the French out from there.). Sounds like the history repeat. They thought Algeria belonged to ...

Re: progpower report

It is true that it is not the band's fault regarding the signing session cancellation. However, the reason the band gave you is total bullshit and they probably aren't aware of it either. I sent the itinerary to their tour manager over six weeks in advance. I have the email confirmation where he re...

Re: São Paulo, Brasil - DVD - Set List

Just a little calculus. Of the 17 (I don't count the bass solo) songs that were played, 11 (i.e. 64%) are already on VoE. If that's not selling twice the same thing just to make $$$, I don't know what is. Well.. there was that song poll.. of course not everyone can be 100% happy with the set list.....

Unbelievable video. Really excellent.

Weight problems(and predjudice) are bad on either end of the spectrum, I suppose.

New album's songs, Maniac Dance, Fight and Back to Madess sounds very dark already. Lyrically. I have heard Maniac Dance once from radio and I have Fight mp3. Also I have clip of Back to Madness.

POWERMETAL! (despite there some guys that separates POWERMETAL into two, POWERMETAL USA -slayer,pantera- and POWERMETAL EUROPE -helloween-strato, and so on.) Mmm... bands like Gamma Ray, Edguy or Helloween are pure power metal. Strato have other influences or other different sounds in their music. ...
