Re: timo tolkki

I just watched him play a couple months ago during a Latin American tour he did last year. He was looking in much better shape/spirits than when he did those Spain tours a while ago. I think he's doing well for himself :)

Re: New Stratovarius album: a list of demands

Peacemaker is another example. Have you heard that one? I just pick up this really clear thinking and simple charm in that song. Check out that keyboard solo by the way. Its so playful and fun. I can't really measure Demo-level production to studio-tier production (unless it's fucking Ecliptica 201...

Re: New Stratovarius album: a list of demands

I particularly hate Ecliptica 2014. It should have been illegal to sell that. Yeah, pretty much. :lol: I believe the only reason Ecliptica 2014 exists is because their Japanese record label wanted it, though I could be wrong. Yeah, but even if their Japanese label basically commissioned it, I still...

I'm listening again with my crappy earbuds in some random gym so take this with a grain of salt... Brb, I'm gonna judge Visions by listening to it on my phone's speaker. That's definitely gonna be representative of the album's production quality. Kotipelto strains too much in the chorus and sounds ...

Re: Rate all Stratovarius album!

Fright Night 6 - It's a different Strato. Good to average Heavy Metal. Twilight Time 6 - Love the slower more atmospheric tracks. More Power Metal traces in the faster tracks. Dreamspace 5 - Has some great stuff but it overstays its welcome. Too much filler bring it down to me. I can never listen t...

Re: How long until reunion happens.

I'm not sure about a full Reunion tour. I worry about rising old tensions or something becoming unnecessarily harder as the tour progresses. What I think would work would be something like... three special shows in Helsinki with a very special set list that focuses on the Tolkki era. You then record...

Re: Fright Night

Fright Night is a weird listen, but worth it I feel. I like Tolkki's voice for the more _thrashy-heavy metal_ sound the album. I like Future Shock, False Mesiah, Black Night and Goodbye personally. Just dont't expect anything near the modern Kupiainen-era sound or even the Visions style. It's a ver...
