After all these years, the music of Stratovarius...

...still has a profound effect on me, personally. I've been introduced to many more power metal bands and other genres of music since discovering Stratovarius, but Strato still has a special place in my heart as the #1 power metal band. Unlike other bands, I feel like I can actually relate to the ba...

Re: I've decided that I'm giving up on Christianity.

It's cool that I can talk to a Christian who actually knows what he's talking about, NeoRave. But let's get one thing straight... I followed this religion for no less than twenty years. There's nothing you or anyone else can say to me to make me change my mind about leaving it. No, the Tower of Babe...

I've decided that I'm giving up on Christianity.

Basically, I've had enough of overzealous lunatics, nonsensical and outdated fables and parables, and faith. I am an idealist; my whole perspective of life is to be a free mind and spirit. I even decided to take the name "Lucid" to demonstrate my endeavors to be an open-minded and rational being. I ...

Re: Check out this fight!

There's nothing wrong with competition in a controlled environment. At the end of Don Frye versus Ken Shamrock, Shamrock's face was a bloody mess, and BOTH of Frye's ankles were broken, but after the fight ended, they hugged in the middle of the ring. Sure, it's violent, but so what? It's sport.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_C6_KtmdDQ It's a mixed-martial arts fight between Don Frye and Yoshihiro Takayama. Some Pride Fighting fans call this the "hockey fight," and for good reason.

Xiquets De Banyoles - The worst music videos ever

A bunch of guys (Finnish?) reinacting their favorite metal songs. Ridiculous costumes, antics, and bad lip-syncing ensues. Check out My Spirit Will Go On, Black Diamond, I Want It All, and Wish I Had An Angel; those are their "best" performances. >_> AC/DC - Highway to Hell http://video.google.com/v...

Re: STRAGO PRESS RELEASE: Tarja out of Nightwish!

I love Tarja. Tarja has a great voice, but she's one of the weaker operatic singers I've heard. She lacks power in some songs, and has a very limited range. This could actually be the rejuvenation of Nightwish, as much as I dislike saying that.

Re: Stratovarius was incredible in Cleveland last night. \mmmmm/

No, I wasn't able to meet any of them, though I definitely would have liked to.

I believe Tolkki made that comment after I told him that I think that "Phoenix" is the best song ever written. ;)

Stratovarius was incredible in Cleveland last night. \mmmmm/

The Cleveland crowd was not the typical laid-back metal crowd most bands are used to seeing from Americans. When Stratovarius came out and played "Maniac Dance," we went nuts. Stratovarius proceeded to play a near-perfect setlist, playing just about everyone's favorite songs from Fourth Dimension, E...

The Cleveland show was incredible. The crowd was intense; we all went nuts for Strato.

My only question is, did Timo Tolkki forget how to play Forever? :lol:

Re: São Paulo, Brasil - DVD - Set List

I'm surprised at the set, really. Two songs to pick from the new album, and United is one of them? United is terrible compared to Fight, Just Carry On, Back To Madness, and Gypsy In Me. And all of the above are worse than Phoenix. >_>

The music video kicks ass, in my opinion. It just makes no sense.
