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

There was another song as well that didn't make the cut, but I don't think we even bothered recording some of it. Well, as far as I know, there also were about 30 written songs for Polaris. I read that here a few months ago... I think, but it's well known that many songs allways get written and jus...

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

Yes, that is true. But I don't understand how the supposed epic and long song from the album, went out. Who knows. Maybe it was just a decision from the band. Mike, that is around here sometimes, maybe could tell us something. There was nothing wrong with "Revolution Has Begun" nor was it difficult...

Well of course, in a way. I have always been a post apocalypse movie buff, our vocalist Aaron was the one who wrote these.

Re: RIP- Natasha Richardson

The strange thing is, she apparently got up right after the accident and was walking around feeling fine. That's the nature of head injuries though, even if you feel fine have it checked out. A very sad, and avoidable death. Yeah, usually bleeding in the brain is noticed when its already too late.....
