Re: Post samples of your playing!

Erm, we draw our primary influences from progressive music and black metal, so what else would you call it? We don't just throw it in to sound cool as you seem to infer. So if I hear someone playing original music and I copy them, I can call my copied version original? Great, my problems are solved...

Re: Post samples of your playing!

I love it how everyone adds "progressive" to describe their stuff. Soon we're gonna have progressive chart pop and even progressive blues. Progressive roots! Yo!

Re: Jorg uses Triggers?

Gah whatever. Hellhammer uses triggers, very heavily I might add, and he's still considered one of the finest drummers around today. Drum triggers are as commonplace as guitar effects. They make life easier for everyone. They're easier to set up, easier to program, easier to store than microphones,...

Re: Post samples of your playing!

Unfortunately I don't have any recording equipment. Besides, I'm not so sure how many Strato fans would actually like my band's style... it's a little :evil: You'd be surprised what many Stratofans listen to. Just look at my avatar, for example. Yeah, you're right. I mean after all, I'm here too an...

Re: NEON PRESS RELEASE: NIGHTWISH ANNOUNCE NORWEGIAN SINGER!!!

Hmm.. well the ones I've seen claim that it's Demonaz. I don't actually own any Immortal cd's, so I guess you have the original thing. Whatever! I've seen so many parodies that I got confused I guess. No, it's probably not your fault for the confusion. As you would know, misinformation is rife arou...

Re: Newish to Strat...

Thank you all for the great advice. I'm about 99% certain I will end up getting them all anyway, but I think I'll go with Episode from what has been said here. I was a little surprised when I got Fright Night (the most recent one I got) but I still really like that sound. I've heard that Tolkki has ...

Newish to Strat...

Greetings, I'm fairly new to Stratovarius, and absolutely new to this board. I have Fright Night, Visions, Destiny and Infinite. I like all of them. My favourites are probably Fright Night and Visions. Does anyone have any advice on which release should be the next one I slap some of my hard-earned ...

Re: Whats your playing style?

My playing style would be best classed as hodgepodge. It's kind of a blend of everything I like, which pretty much encapsulates elements of everything across the metal/rock spectrum.

Re: Jorg uses Triggers?

Triggers are part of the drum recording equipment, so yes, they are used on every song.

Re: Tarja guest in Stratovarius

Personally I think Tarja guesting a Strat song would be cool, but with the recent revelations from the Nightwish camp, I don't think Strat should touch the idea with a 50ft pole.

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

Not living in France, I can't really comment on the situation other than how sad it is to see. But the mention of race in the riots doesn't sit right with me. It's ALWAYS got far more do with the socio-economic situation than the colour of one's skin; obviously it is generally harder to make a decen...
