Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

I would like to add that, concerning Sonata changing their style, it's not like they did it drastically and really fast. Even on their third album, Winterheart's Guild, there were elements of slowing down and more progressive ideas; Reckoning Night took that further (boy who wanted to be a puppet, ...

Re: Recommend Me: Aerosmith

I love Dream On. Especially the version that Ronnie James Dio and Yngwie J. Malmsteen have done f or that tribute album in 1999.

Re: SonatAArcticA Fans Report in!

The other way around. I really like Dragonforce but I don't like the recent Edguy, Sonata Arctica and Avantasia stuff. :lol: It's not that I'm against developement. But at the same time I don't mind if a band doesn't develope and just plays it safe, or in your words "repeat the same album over and o...

Re: Rhapsody of Fire are back!

I didn't say that I don't demand creativity from them. All I was saying is that I hope that they don't go into the same direction as Sonata Arctica because, as mentioned in the Sonata topic, I don't like that direction at all.

Re: SonatAArcticA Fans Report in!

I wasn't talking about his lyrics. Yes, he is a good lyricist, but for me the lyrics aren't that important. As long as I like the song I'm very forgiving when it comes to lyrics. Hell, I even tend to be a fan of silly, over-the-top and cheesy stuff. The only lyrics I dislike are preachy religious on...

Re: Rhapsody of Fire are back!

I don't really care if they're inovative or not. I like their music, their over-the-top, full-on-cheesy fantasy lyrics and image, the pompous orchestration, Fabio's semi-operatic singing and Lucca's guitar playing. I really hope that they don't pull a Sonata Arctica on us and go all progressive.

Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

What I didn't like about AoA was that it is so godamn sluggish. Every time I listen to the damn thing I'm wating for it to pick up pace but all I get is just another damn slow-to-mid-tempo song and it just goes on like this for the whole thing. There are some nice Melodies and ideas here and there (...

Well, I know I can say that. Maybe they're masterpieces to you, but to me they're just another bunch of boring songs. I tried to give TdoG a chance, but the album just bored me to tears apart from "Flag In The Ground". And when I mentioned Tony I think I should've made myself sound clearer. I was ta...

Not to start an argument, i'm just interested..Is it just that they're not speedy like the earlier albums or is it something else? That is pretty much it. I never really liked Sonata to begin with (mainly due to Tony Kakko. Someone please explain to me what is supposed to be so awesome about him?),...

bullshit. I think that AoA is bettar than all Stratoalbum since Infinite.
I disagree. To me, AoA is the worst Album Tolkki has ever done. Apart from a few songs the whole thing bored me to tears.

A really close friend told me he is starting a new super group called Symfonia, it will have Andre Matos on vocals, the other members are Uli Kusch, Jari Kainulainen and Bob Katsionis. Well Uli and Jari could certainly use work these days, but given what I heard about Jari's firing from Stratovariu...

Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

All I could think of happening between Strato and Tolkki is MAYBE Tolkki appearing as a guest on a song, providing a guitar solo. But I HIGHLY doubt that he will return to Strato.

Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

I think TT shouldn't be blamed again just like previous times. it's like he lost everything, not like he destroys his band again. I might think that the idea to recruit R-R at the beginning was not good. His new band can never reach Stratovarius level and to be honest, R-R never appear to be a true...

Well, maybe if Trinity is succesful, he'll change his mind. But I doubt it.

Re: Sad news about Revolution Renaissance

Well, the whole reason behing "Project Strato" was to revive the old days with the old line-Up. It wouldn't be the same without TT singing.
