Re: Eternal World Tour in Southern Germany

Holy shit it's so good to see Stratovarius live! Sadly had to leave early, but still totally worth it.

Is it just me or was the music painfully loud? I went to the back of the venue actually cause I was afraid it would do damage to my ears...

Re: Eternal World Tour in Southern Germany

Yep, the venue website also lists the show as canceled. :-(

Wonder what will happen to the Munich concert, I hope we have news soon so I can get a partial refund on my ticket...

Hope Timo is okay, everyone has been sick lately.

Re: Eternal World Tour in Southern Germany

I've moved here a couple years ago. :-) So yea, I don't think going from the Hbf to the venues and back is going to be a big problem. The main problem really is that I don't know at what time the concerts end, so I don't know if I'd have time to get to the last train back to Stuttgart. The last trai...

And Forever or, even better, Season of Change instead of If The Story is Over. But damn, can't really complain. It'll be my 4th Strato concert, it's always very emot...

Re: 2 questions (well, 3 actually)

As for the poll question, if it were any other band, I'd be happy about S/T cause it was a solid album. But we got used to expecting greatness from Strato, and S/T was pretty good, but not great. All things considered, now that we are aware of the troubles those guys went through at the time, I thin...

Re: 1 strato song that you didn't like at first and now you love

Somehow it took me years to recognize the beauty of songs like Lead Us Into the Light and Tears of Ice. If Strato recorded those songs with Koti singing, they'd be truly perfect.

Not an easy decision.

Why?

I don't quite get it, I'm not saying I'd like them to stop doing everything they're doing now to make an Intermission-like album. I'm saying I wish they did that eventually.

I really don't get it, am I the only one who loves their bonus tracks?

Re: Hallowed and Last Shore

Yeah, I'm not suggesting they take a break. :-P

Intermission was a great idea, though. I wish more bands released albums like that. Bonus tracks are a bitch to track down. And some of Stratovarius' finest works are bonus tracks (to me anyways).

Hi, I just managed to listen to those songs, they're so amazing! Is it true that they're only available in the 7" vinyl? I don't even have a record player, let alone something that allows me to record from vinyl... :( And even if I had a way to record from vinyl, the quality would probably suck (lik...
