Re: So, when did you encounter Strato for the first time?

I already knew of Matias through various things, so I investigated when he joined. Have yet to investigate the back catalogue, but I'll get round to it one day :lol:

I think I should go with you next time you go to China in order to translate scary-looking menus :lol:


Also, you should record some of Matias' funny noises and use them on the next album :P

Pfft. If he can manage a waltz while playing the Attitude Medley, he can sing while doing that solo.

Re: Timo Tolkki's review of Polaris

Actually, the best critics are the ones who find a flaw. They are the ones who tell you where you need to improve. If that was aimed at me, that wasn't what I was saying. I was pointing out that dressing up a personal feud and accompanying vitriol up as musical criticism doesn't actually make it mu...

Re: Polaris - Your Review

But is Timo that ill? I mean, is really serious? The Uk gigs are in danger due to that or something? He didn't look well at Wolverhampton (he told the crowd Jens has given him Swine Flu!), and it sounds like he's got worse since then, so who knows. I hope he gets through the gigs as I'm seeing them...
