Re: Jani Liimatainen

Jani mentioned starting songwriting in his blog. Maybe we will get a new Cain's Offering afterall.

Re: Jani Liimatainen

No need for that. Jani can keep making his own music (possibly in co-operation with TK) and Stratovarius can keep to their own thing as well. There are more than enough good songwriters in the band and Matias can handle all the guitars. + having anouther guitarist might mean less Jens.

Maybe Thunderstone could now do anything at all. They have been silent for almost 3 years now.

Well sure their drummer has been busy making money by selling music for child...

Re: Jari Kainulainen is the new Masterplan Bassist

Well I know him from the Thunderstone album called Dirt Metal. I think that album is quite underrated. I Almighty and Deadlights are such great songs and the long bluesy Suffering Song. And yes he has a bit of a bluesy voice.

Finally got to listen to it. Really nice stuff. I do however hope they won't make another or at least that they won't make a whole bunch. It's nice in small portions but I think having too much acoustic stuff would get boring after a while.

Well Marillion released some live dvds from the 80s for the first time a couple of years ago (Live from Loreley and Recital of the Script).
Of course I hope it won't take 30 years for Strato to release these DvDs but if they do it won't be unheard of.
