Re: Hunting High and Low Cover

I agree with most of the others, you need power and volume! You got sounding good at a whisper down pat :) Your Les Mis thing had some better volume. And some of your songs seem like they need more dynamic range/note range. I saw on your profile at some other site (the one linked at YT) you are only...

Re: Open Letter to Jens

Thank you all for the kind words! Japanese fans have to pay a hell of a lot for their records .. it's how it is! Why not release this song in Special limited ultra edition which costs about same as in japan? I would buy it for sure ;) Isn't it easier just to buy a Japanese edition? The shipping may...

Re: Old Man And The Sea

I would say this is the best Lauri song so far. It's weird, he's always the funny one in the tour videos and stuff, clowning around and doing the talking. But he has some barrier with English in his songwriting I guess, and they usually end up with simplistic or cringeworthy lyrics. But this one's q...

Re: Nemesis Tracklisting and Artwork Released!

The Japanese edition also features a special tour/studio photo booklet with an alternative cover for Nemesis. Basically it is the last page from the Taiwan edition lyrics booklet, the one with the Strato-ship. It would've been so much better if this was the main cover. And alas, the "angel" is inde...

I ordered the 2LP thing from recordshopx, so whenever it arrives here from Finland...maybe it will be uploaded for mass enjoyment. Kontor New Media (earMUSIC) already forced me to remove Fireborn though so dunno :(

and one of the bonus tracks features lyrics from Kotipelto and either the Finnish conductor Osmo Vanska, or the former-Nightwish Bassist Sami Vanksa. All I have is the last name Vanska. The album has a production assistant credit to someone named Perttu Vänskä. Probably made some suggestion in the ...

Re: Theocracy

Who's ignoring who? I've listened to Theocracy which is why I mentioned the similarity with a Strato track. They even played a show with InnerSiege (who I posted in this forum last week) on Friday. They are also a Christianish band, though I didn't know until I listened to their whole album. It's fi...
