Re: the coronavirus thread

Yeah I still listen to COB, just not that regularly anymore, but that goes for any other metal band I like (Stratovarius as well ;) ) - there's just so much more great music out there I'm happy to discover since a few years!

Re: the coronavirus thread

Yay, I'm happy for you, robocop! What a big relief for you. I'm happy to say we didn't have a case in our family yet and neither among my friends, and I'm very thankful for that, with a person in a risk group at home. But with case numbers exploding and having a little inside information about how t...

Re: Which Song Would You Like Stratovarius to perform live?

Elysium live has been a dream ever since I heard it for the first time. And Nemesis (the song) was only played live a few times during Finnish Nemesis tour I think, I'd like to hear that one live again, too. Maybe include the rest of Nemesis album when they're at it :lol:

Re: What bands / albums do you recommend?

I fear I won't be much of help there, since you most probably won't find the beer I like in the US at all. I'd recommend Stuttgarter Hofbräu Pils or Rothaus Weizen-Zäpfle (latter is a wheat beer)... or some local artisan brews you definitely won't find overseas. And I can only guess, but the stuff y...
