Re: Best composer in metal?

Kai Hansen, Mille Petrozza, Timo Tolkki and Yngwie Malmsteen are my favorite. Kai Hansen for his songs which with Helloween and even more with Gamma Ray, "Ride The Sky", "I'm Alive", "I Want Out", "Save Us", "Halloween", "Rebellion In Dreamland", "Man On A Mission", "Valley Of The Kings", "Empathy" ...

Gamma Ray and Helloween were together all the tour long. Gamma Ray was more a second headline than a guest. But I think Axxis didn't tour in the USA, it was another band.

Re: Stratovarius on "Seven Sinners" tour w/ Helloween

You're welcome. :wink:

I'm quite sure they'll plan a South American Tour, as usual. But will Strato play with Helloween all tour long ? Concerning North America, I don't know. Sometimes it is too expensive for Helloween to play in the United States.

Helloween talks about the tour on the website : http://www.helloween.org/hometop/160-al ... ml#article

Re: Stratovarius on "Seven Sinners" tour w/ Helloween

So you don't really know anything about Helloween, Gamma Ray and Kai Hansen. First, Kai is the founding member of the band. Then he wrote or co-wrote a lot of songs for the first four albums. And who wrote awesome solos such as those from "I'm Alive" and so on ? Actually the band was founded as a c...

Re: Stratovarius on "Seven Sinners" tour w/ Helloween

You've forgotten something : first, you're just talking about your tastes. Then, Gamma Ray is Kai Hansen's band, and Kai is the godfather of the genre. I really think Kai's contributions are overrated in Helloween. Helloween are the godfathers of the genre, and that's thanks to Michael Weikath. Gam...

Re: Stratovarius on "Seven Sinners" tour w/ Helloween

There's another date confirmed on the Helloween website : November 28, 2010: Petöfi Hall, Budapest, Hungary I agree with the idea of this Big Four. It would be fucking awesome that the 4 bands play songs together at the end ! They could play "I Want Out", "Future World", "Valley Of The Kings", "Ride...

Yes but the man and his music are two different things. When I listen to a Yngwie song which, in my opinion, kicks ass, I don't think "oh this guy is an asshole, skip this song".

Maybe but they are not at the place they should be and nothing works. Fortunately we have an excellent goalkeeper. Only a few players play as they have to... The others seems not to care.

I think I'll try to sell the Polaris copy I already have (which I bought 23 euros...) to buy this. I'm not enough rich to buy again and again. Edel should have decided to release a 2CD live album, it would have been more intelligent.

Re: Gamma Ray - To The Metal..... (released).

This album is one of the best Gamma Ray albums. It's far better than the last three albums, which were deceiving. Almost all the songs from To The Metal are good. Now that all the melodic bands sound the same, we can hail Gamma Ray for creating things different, like "Empathy" or "Shine Forever". I ...
