Re: Stratovarius album out in Spring 2013 (by EarMusic)

Well we've got the same writing team from the last two albums so I have a feeling this new album is going to kick ass.

Re: GEOFF TATE Unveils His Version Of QUEENSRŸCHE

I don't know how it is going to turn out, I too personally am curious to hear what it will sound like.

I'm also curious as to what the other version of queensryche is going to sound like without Tate.

It's been a combination really, elements of the old while continually trying new things.

Re: Stratovarius album out in Spring 2013 (by EarMusic)

If it's "back to the roots" I'll be fine with it however I'm more expecting it to be an extension of what they were doing with the last two albums.

Re: GEOFF TATE Unveils His Version Of QUEENSRŸCHE

You make a good point however Queensryche isn't what you would call a mainstream band either. Even at the height of their success you'd be hard pressed to find people who could name each and every musician in Queensryche. More often then not whenever I ask about Queensryche most people say to me "do...

Re: GEOFF TATE Unveils His Version Of QUEENSRŸCHE

Here's the thing whether we like to admit it or not, all of the people in the new band are successful in one way or another. We may not have liked the bands some of them were in however it doesn't change the fact that they were indeed in successful bands. Also as I have learned studying music there ...

Re: Stratovarius album out in Spring 2013 (by EarMusic)

I'm thinking that the new album will be a further extension of the sound we heard on Polaris and Elysium, that power metal with elements of progressive sound.

I figured that the show is what was implied however after rereading through my statement it is in fact not implied there. However that being said how many people would really have thought of it that way? :lol:

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

It's now a band with members who can write as they want now, not a band with one guy calling all the shots. As has been stated before, the TT years were a whole other thing, while we had that line up we heard some excellent songs. This new line up is also a whole other thing, we have new life in the...

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

I agree, it's all in how you perceive each line up, there are some out there who would say the dreamspace lineup was the best one. In the end it's what you get out of it personally and I would have to say that each line up has fulfilled my expectations in one way or another.

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

If I remember right that was the case, they would all submit material and TT would only choose the one's he felt were good for the album, which is many cases tended to be his compositions. Many of the others like Tk's and JJ's compositions would get relegated to B-sides with a few exceptions, which ...

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

As far as I understand it(I could be wrong), TT would only allow Kotipelto to write lyrics and TT would have heavy influence on what TK was allowed to write. So yes his name is in the sleeves however that doesn't mean he influenced the direction of the song, this is what the whole argument was about...

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

My point is that everything is distributed evenly between the members and no one plays a minor role.

Where as it seemed in Stratovarius the members were only allowed the play the music that TT wrote for them.

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

I agree as well, I mean it's one thing if someone is writing out of necessity because the other members do not want to(I.E. Neil Peart of Rush)however in the case of Stratovarius they were clearly not ever allowed to because TT believed their stuff did not fit into the Strato vein. I do believe that...

I personally don't blame TK for being upset, if I felt I was being stifled creatively in a band I would be upset too. Now I agree to a point that someone in the band has to set the direction for the album however I also think that he should be open minded enough to let the others members get their i...

Re: Timo Tolkki & The Aquarius

It's the same for me Icecab, the other musicians seem okay but the Lead singer is the part I don't like the most. I just feel that they could have chose someone better.
