Re: What bands / albums do you recommend?

Wintersun's The Forest Seasons is a must if you haven't listened to it yet.

I will assume you have listened to all DT's albums, especially when MP was in the band.

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

Won't believe it until I see an album released. Even then I can't imagine it being "good". TT peaked decades ago and releasing a good album will be an outlier. If he produces something similar to Episode then I will definitely be interested. Right...what is the last great album by TT. Elements Part...

Re: video game music



Whenever I want to study or just chill I listen to Halo sountracks. Martin O'Donnell did such a terrific job at making the ost so iconic.



I think this and F-Zero are the reason why I follow metal. :P

Re: Coffee

Anyone owns a Nespresso? I don't want to spend money on the pods but apparently it's a good product.

That video was interesting. The time I had 5+ cups of coffee I felt I was going to pass out. I limit myself to 3/day now at the most.

Ask him any vague question and rather than trying to answer it to the extent of his abilities, he will dismiss it under philosophical grounds.

Re: Coffee

I don't know if I said this before but the reason they roast their beans extensively is because it gets rid of the water content, making the coffee lighter and therefore able to import more quantity and pay less. It does make their coffee taste like shit, which is why most of their drinks contain hi...

Re: 2008 statements, Wayback Machine and the old.stratovarius.com stuff

I was a young teenager when I first listened to Tolkki's music. I can state that his push for common sense and peace through his lyrics helped me define my thoughts growing up. I once asked him what's his favorite book, and he recommended me to read The Road Less Traveled. At that time, it was my ag...

Do you think that the decrease is due to self-isolation? Or is it because most of the weak elders have passed away and now there are not as many to infect? According to projections in the USA, these will be the most miserable weeks. I think there are still cities that need to peak. I don't think it ...

That was pretty spot on. Don't forget the drama with Revolution Renaissance and how Tolkki didn't "play" guitars in Trinity.

Ah, I just remembered. Did he ever give away his guitar? I feel like he didn't.

China's economy will get hit. A good portion of its income comes from the production of goods, which heavily depends on western demand. USA's guidelines are complete horse shit.

The great schism of 2008 and what followed was one of the best soap opera dramas I've witnessed in my life. The constant back-and-forth, the trolling, and the abrupt turn of events were all magnificent. The release of Polaris was the cherry on top, proving that the band can still produce without its...

I was hesitating on spending $80 for headphones. $300 is just way over my non-existing budget.
