Re: Some good news and some bad news at the same time

I think it's too early to play Elysium songs.... let's wait people get the album well in mind. And they're supporting Helloween, they shall play their well known classics for this audience, even, if, at least in Paris, there were a lot of Strato die hard fans. Anyway, they'll play Elysium on their f...

Re: Favorite song off of Elysium?

I love the game never ends!!!!

My top song would be:

1- Fairness Justified (but just the chorus actually).
2- The game Never ends.
3- Lifetime in a Moment.
4- Event Horizon.
5- Move the mountain.

Re: Favorite song off of Elysium?

For me it still is between:

Fairness Justified, The Game Never Ends and Lifetime in a Moment.

Event Horizon lies ahea... ahem... just behind!

Re: Some good news and some bad news at the same time

Can you give us an estimated setlist? This is what i found idk if is right Hunting High and Low Forever Twilight Symphony Beginning par HHAL is great!!! But I think Strato's best intro will remain "Destiny", perfect for an intro!!! And I'm happy they keep playing those two songs... just sad they to...

The thing this album taught me is that Tolkki was a much more better ballad writer than the guys now: Forever, Before the winter, Coming Home, 4000 rainy nights, Mother Gaia, Keep the flame, The land of ice and snow... All those songs are pure beauty and I must say that the new ballads doesnt reach'...

Re: To entertain the crowds

Well, technically some bands can stay more than two hours on stage (Kiss, the Naheulband, Manowar...), but, it's still is one show, indeed...
Two different shows would be really hard to stand!!!

Haha, I wish it's not true... the Strato guys are too awesome to do that!!! Last year, Timo accepted to play "Paradise" after I've asked him the afternoon. Jens is Jens... just look at the Stratoforum. Matias is maybe a bit shy, but golden hearted!!!! Lauri is the hell of a funny and pleasant guy!!!...

But I agree, it is a unique opportunity to focus on the four musicians!!!

By the way, the intro of "Occasion avenue" is the best intro Helloween could have chosen!!!!
