Re: timo tolkki

Floor Jansen looks like a man. Her thighs are as big as tree trunks! :shock: Hahaha! I really like her but I've always thought more feminine clothing and less leather would suit her. She looks like a gothic transvestite most of the times. :lol: Hey buddy. Good to see you here. Want to cum over for ...

Re: STRATOVARIUS LOT OF VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE

It is live and it is downtuned like it has been the last few years. TK always sings better in TV recording sessions. It is as if he tries harder because more people see it and because it's a single show. He doesn't have to hold back to save his voice for following shows. When he was a contestant in ...

YES PLEASE. I hoped they would've done that at the start of the Eternal tour but alas. Hope they'll do it on the next tour.

Re: STRATOVARIUS LOT OF VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE

Definitely agree on Timo. He really sounds as if he has way more control over his voice. On the topic of arrangements, I finally found out why I find some songs weak in comparison to the album version. Most important is Eagleheart. In the original version the bass in the verses was an ongoing line ...

Re: New song

Btw, I'm curious if Tolkki is going to say anything about the Best Of album cover. It has a big Fleur de Lys on it! What can he say? He doesn't own any rights to Fleur de Lys-sign. I know. But it wouldn't surprise me if he'd be like "the Fleur de Lys was my personal mark on/represented my spiritual...

Man... go get Neverworld and Magic Never Dies. I'll wait. Glorious early 2000s style power metal.

Hey! Shine In The Dark is played in the original key! With Strato they perform it one step lower than the album version. Cool to hear it live in its original key!

This review described the album best I believe. It's quite a read, but at the end you know exactly what you get.

I didn't really like ADToE. I liked DT a bit more. But this album is something completely different. Give it a (unbiased) shot. It's really a masterpiece.

(And no I'm not a DT fanboy)
