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

Come on, everyone knows that The Days of Grays was complete trash. And not even Jorn Lande doing backing vocals on "Flag in the Ground" was enough to save it. :x I agree. The only song I can even tolerate is "Flag in the Ground". The rest of them I have to skip when they come up in my metal playlis...

I'm relatively new here but I will say that the AAAA guys are annoying and pathetic.

They flood every thread with a wave of emoticons and garbage and it makes my brain leak out of my head a little after every post.

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

I came across Stratovarius on Pandora a little over a year ago. Eagleheart was the first Strato song I heard and like foerg said, it was exactly what I was searching for. They really opened my eyes to this kind of metal that I've been missing out on for the last 20 or so years. I've been trying to c...

Dreamtale is their opener. They're local very quality power metal band, and my friend and I are enthusiastic about seeing them as well. The Stratovarius show on 9/16 in NYC was my first Strato show but certainly not the last if they come back. I'll see them everytime they are in the NYC area. I'm s...

I would pay $40 a week to see a Stratovarius show every week if I could.

I know that there is less of a fan base in the US but thats only because people are spoon fed terrible music around here.

Re: Recommend me some SONATA ARCTICA

There's alot of good Sonata Arctica out there. Its hard to pick a place to start. In my opinion you should start at the beginning (Ecliptica?)and go from there.

As far as songs go, I think My Land and Replica are amazing.

What time did the doors open? If they didn't start until 10:15, that's either a long Pagan's Mind setlist, or a late start. Doors openened at 7.
