Re: Top 10 Stratovarius songs of the new era

New era being Polaris, Elysium, Nemesis, and Eternal. I absolutely love this band and each album they've released since Polaris has been better than the last. Eternal is honestly my favorite album next to Episode. Mine would be: 1: Elysium 2: Out of the Fog 3: Abandon 4: Castles in the Air 5: Halcy...

Re: Eternal Reaction and Reviews

Well, well...
Eternal hit the #5 spot in the Finnish charts.
It's kinda hard to go higher when Iron Maiden, Slayer and Amorphis have just released albums as well, but still :(

Re: Eternal Reaction and Reviews

Here are my thoughts: My Eternal Dream 10/10 I believe it is utterly impossible to be a Strato fan and not falling in love with this one. The verses are great, the chorus is bombastic and the solos are mind blowing. Nothing to dislike, not to mention that Kotipelto is on fire. Shine in the Dark 8/10...

Re: "Eternal" cover art work & tracklist

They actually put the album available for download on Japanese Amazon last night, I've listened to it today. Well, I liked it a lot. I think I was a bit more excited about Nemesis, but that is because all those experiments seemed intriguing. Here we have a very classic Stratovarius, although, I thi...

I really, really, REALLY like it! They made great use of TK's range these days. Love the quite low vocals in the verses and then still some high notes in the chorus! Only point if there is any is that this really needs the choir on a backing track during live performances. No way Lauri and Matias a...

Re: TT got email from Stratovarius management!

Jens reaction says it all. It wouldn't be tragic if Tolkki did some shows as a guest and ONLY as a guest with Stratovarius, though if by this point we still have not learnt that the best Stratovarius can do is to stay a million lightyears away from Tolkki then we haven't learnt anything at all.

For Peter Wildoer, Stratovarius stuff is kids stuff. He's ready to play some more demanding material than the Strato one. No offense, but Peter is completely amazing and would be working at 30% of his capacity, he is able to do much more complex music... Well... Tolkki's stuff is kids' stuff for Ma...

Yeah but the fact still remains that Timo Kotipelto sang all of those, That to me would be like asking Ozzy to quit singing paranoid(which he sings in both black sabbath and with his solo band). It is a fact that most of times one as a fan first tends to associate a song to the singer first. As lon...

I think they will release something in mid or late 2012, the band still creative and still productive, losing jorg is a hard punch in the stomach but strato needs to carry on. In fact, I think it is now when the band is more creative than ever. Matias, Lauri, Jens and Tk composing...it is amazing. ...

Five listens and can say that in my opinion the album is bad… There you have Uli pretending to be Jörg even though he does not need that.
