Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

that's the cover of Trinity? wow it looks great!
but I'm still sad. I do love AOA very much. VERY much.
maybe Trinity will sell a lot and RR will continue... *sigh.

In June 2005 , Tolkki announced that the band's bassist, Jari Kainulainen, had left the band due to personal reasons. He was replaced by Lauri Porra, a young Finnish musician. -wikipedia http://syren.net76.net/webpic/lauri5yrs.jpg this is very roughly done, as we were collecting photos from Helfest...

Re: Polaris Live, Infinite reissue and future plans

"Lin Yun" means "above the cloud", so it does show some meaning of "stratosphere".

Re: Something weird concerning [Stratovarius - R... R...]

Tolkki never said what happened to this song. i think on that video documentation TT recorded for AOA, there's a scene they all sit with some instruments and TT said "this is the fifth time we tried to record this song" or something. they were making fun of it. so i think they give up at last, 'cos...

i think the 11st song is "revolution has begun", which Tolkki has tried to record for several times, but wasn't satisfied at last.

United live is amazing. I was there and I almost cried.
so that amazing memory hurts more when they... well, divided. :(

Re: Timo Tolkki's review of Polaris

Of course Stratoforum is not the best place to say this, but anyways I will say. Polaris is a great album and it sounds in a new way. I would call it very successful. And I disagree with Tolkki. But IMO Tolkki's Age of Aquarius is much more emotional and finally better. And now you all can pelt me ...
