Re: CHAOS in Norway

I am just so incredibly sad :(
A horrible, horrible day! I live one hour outside of Oslo and luckily I was not in Oslo that day.

I am just out of words.. :cry:

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

Oooooooh! Both Strato AND Sonata Arctica at '70,000 tons of metal"?? I wanna be there! I am a huge fan of Sonata and I also like their latest album (after a few listens) and found their concert in Norway fantastic! Tony Kakko's voice is my favourite alongside Timo Kotipelto, I can never chose betwee...

Re: You have to do new DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, when I said "small venue" I meant a closed space for up to 2,000 people (or something like that). Big venues, for me, are places like sports arenas, which can easily accomodate 10,000 people or more. I guess it just depends on how you define "small" and "big"... And a Strato gig at Rockefelle...

Re: You have to do new DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do a DVD directed by Patrick Ullaeus, like Kamelot. Their DVD (OCWN) is the best DVD live ever! Agreed! Kamelot's "One Cold Winter's Night" DVD was recorded in a small venue, but it's technically flawless and the band gave a very emotional and energetic performance. A Strato DVD with the same level...

I disagree with you, after many listens. I know many think an album should be good straight away, but for me I appreciate albums more if the songs need to "grow on me". In the biginning I thought it sounded strange, weird, the lack of solos annoyed me and I wondered if Tony had lost his mind. It sou...
