Re: Tempers flare at Ground Zero Mosque rally in New York

Apparently, you must be joking- an idiotic Finn pot calling the Dutch kettle black. Unless you've forgotten that there were scores of Finns that fought alongside Nazi Germany, and many of which enlisted in the Finnisches Freiwilligen-Bataillon der Waffen-SS that was formed up in 1941- If Finland wa...

Re: NEW TOLKKI INTERVIEW

I can't accept that Jorg was so instrumental to the success of the band that Stratovarius could not continue without him, but Jari was a nobody that can be tossed away like a used condom. Rolling Eyes Jari had his personal bass sound in Stratovarius as well as Jörg had his own drum sound, althought...

Re: Tempers flare at Ground Zero Mosque rally in New York

Neo-Nazism is pretty widespread in Eastern Europe, especially Poland, Romania, Russia and Ukraine. Hell, there's places in Eastern Germany I wouldn't go to. That's maybe true nowadays, but in 1930s/1940s one of Nazi Germany's spokesman (I don't remember his name) said, that "Poles will disappear fr...

If you think, that Dreamchild is mediocre song, it's your opinion, but there's also people who likes it and who wants to discuss about it. Some times I wonder, why people can't accept each other's opinions.

That's a ridiculous argument. You're comparing the very-average-songs from one album to the best songs from the last eleven. I easily prefer "Forever is Today" over "Just Carry On', "Deep Unknown" over "Witch Hunt", and "Winter Skies" over "Before the Winter". Even classic albums like "Destiny" are...

Stratovarius is a band. Not a person. Not a solo project. The band was OWNED by one person, who wrote most of the music, but it was still a band. This was also a band that saw marginal success until the addition of seasoned musicians Jens Johansson and Jorg Michael. Those two, and their contributio...

Re: SonatAArcticA Fans Report in!

As to the fan discussion I think, that if you like some band's music it doesn't mean, that you are a fan. I'm a fan of earlier Sonata, but I'm not a fan of their newer albums except few songs.
