Re: What Stratovarius albums do you own?

I had a rareish piece for my Lauri-music-collection in the postbox today, Peter Lerche's Peshawar Diary. Very happy I found this one :) Now there's not much left to add - as far as I know, at least :lol: Any of you Finnish guys knows where to get some hard-to-find-pieces like the two sold out Salok...

Re: What would it take to get Stratovarius here,,,

I'm sure all of us would absolutely love to play Australia. Personally it has been my dream for years. Basically it takes a professional promoter who can book and arrange a proper show, enough money to fly the band and crew from europe to australia and back, accomodation and food for everybody and e...

For the last 2 movies i used the Bratislava Symphony orchestra and choir as well as numerous finnish top musicians like Matias. Softwarewise i use Logic, PT and plenty of different sound libraries. Such as the ones Jajnov mentions. But always as much live playing as possible.

Don´t know about the others but I like it better without. Feels more natural and you get a more rockin´ mood going. I don´t mind using in-ear monitoring in a more mellow situation such as playing something more acoustic, for metal i prefer oldschool...

Re: Don't you hate when Stratovarius is....

I really hate when we tour for half a year non stop, going all around the planet and still we cannot reach all the people we wanted.

And i am as well really pissed off we did not get to play Venezuela, i was really looking forward to getting back there :(

Re: Some good news and some bad news at the same time

On a negative note, we saw Matias and Lauri inside the venue, when Helloween was playing, and we soon noticed that they weren't (at least Lauri) willing to attend their fans. When they finished to sign two fans' cds we approached them just to take some pictures like always, and I took Lurdi one pic...

Re: New Chinese dates, New Lauri Video, New album news

The little piece of music in the end is from a demo of one of the songs we are working on at the moment, made by Matias. We have a lot of great material and i think the next album will kick all kinds of asses. I love Polaris, but now we are taking it to the next level. BEWARE!!!

Re: Tolkkis book

If the book comes on time (physically) I will donate a bass to the guy who won Tolkki´s guitar (If he ever recieved it, i´d love to hear if he ever got it)
I truly respect and love the guy, but following his statements and "schedules" is not really his forte.
