Re: Stratovarius to play Wacken, start work on new album in 2010

When it comes to germany, the only bands that get mentioned relatively often are Scorpions, Rammstein and Oomph. I'd like to know how stratos status in the finnish media is. I imagine their status has been boosted by Kotipelto's recent reality tv thing. Side note. Oomph! are fantastic...but judging...

Re: I have a question about meeting Stratovarius...

Argh

I'd love to meet Stratovarius. Though I do tend to come over all shy and weird (I'm a bit of a fanboi, I guess :-( ). So it's probably best I don't.

Re: The Worst Album and Song?

Out of the ones I actually have a song I really don't like on

Visions: The Kiss of Judas (too 80s hard rock for my liking)
Elements Pt. 1: Papillon
Elements Pt. 2: Awaken the Giant
Stratovarius: Back to Madness
Polaris: Falling Star

Re: old logo back!!!

neither looked better than the other in my opinion. But, the lily represented where they were, and the star is where they are now.

They should keep the star.

I still have my old stratovarius fabric poster on my wall with pride.

Re: Tony Kakko on Polaris?

Rage. :lol: :lol: :lol: Sometimes you are so incredible hilarious. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :err: Why? This is my opinion! Winter Skies is just a tedious and slow song which I automaticly skip when I listen to the album. "When Mountains Fall" tries desperately to be the 2nd "Forever" but fails horri...

Re: Polaris - 7" Ltd Edition

I got mine (shortly after HMV sold out, they did get more). Seems mine was one of the last signed by many people...signatures seem a little rushed. That's not a complaint though...if I had 3000 signatures to do, I'd have just laid them in a line and ran my pen along them. :) Mine is opened...sadly. ...

Re: Stratovarius: 'Keep Fighting In The Face Of Disaster'

For the love of God, this matter HAS to be laid to rest. The dead horse has been flogged enough. Everyone seems o be searching for a comfy little conclusion, but it will never happen. I love Stratovarius. I don't like RR, but that's not because I think it;s bad, it just not my cup of tea. However, I...

Re: Timo Tolkki's review of Polaris

This is all very interesting. A mixture of unhelpful comments from Tolkki (who, by the way believes they are rational) and unhelpful comments from Stratovarius forum users (who, by the way, believe they are rational). The fact is, Tolkki can write about whoever he wants, whenever he wants, and this ...

Thoroughly looking forward to the 18th. Tad shame about the venue, but oh well, can't be helped :)

Why is everything at Islington these days? Electric Ballroom is being neglected a little :(

Re: DragonForce... ?

I thoroughly dislike Dragonforce, I find them repetative and dull. I actually like one of their early breakaways (Southampton-based Power Quest, who are a good laugh if you like glitzy 80's influenced power metal with MASSES of keyboards). For Stratovarian metal, my recommendation would be early Son...
