Also I will soon release a double CD + sex tape with Stratomembers but they have not responded to my emails yet

Will Union Magnetic bear any resemblance to the Metallica album with a similar name?

Re: Stratovarius Karaokes promoting my work

Maybe it's because they're standalone but I feel like the song would sound better without the backing vocals. The rest I feel like you did a much better job than the actual band did with the production!

Thought it was appropriate for the season.

Re: ELEMENTS HIDDEN TRACK!

Incredible.

It's in the same key as A&O but I don't think there is enough time to fit that track into the intro. Maybe it's half and half or entirely in A Drop in the Ocean.

Re: New Stratovarius album: a list of demands

Agree that Dragonforce + Sabaton got big by basically being meme metal. I think Sabaton has the same sort of effect on history nerds who don't realize the entire genre exists but know about Sabaton because they sing about a bunch of historical events. Only ones I listen to on this chart on a regular...

Infinite is off by one song but they did play one of the bonus tracks live. What's missing from Destiny?

Also I missed this rarity (which also brings Elements Pt. 1 up to minus-one with Infinite):

Tolkki told me he is starting his new band Infinite Key to Visions of Universe (including the grammatical errors) that will perform exclusively Strato singles from 1996-2003 live and will be fronted by a 19-year-old Chilean woman

They played Visions in full before, right? That would be nice to hear their newer albums played in full. Episode and Visions both. And I agree, something like Eternal in full would be cool...

Re: New Stratovarius album: a list of demands

Into the Legend is fantastic. It's a throwback to the band's earlier success. I found the production to be minimal compared to their other albums. Maybe because of money constraints? It's more raw and less sophisticated, but that's what makes it good. I can better appreciate the music and chorus th...

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

Soul of a Vagabond or I Walk to My Own Song (sounds even better when they played it in D minor) From the new era, Feeding the Fire is underplayed and it's a better version of Paradise. Man in the Mirror/Fire in Your Eyes haven't been at all. Both sound like they'd be fun to sing along to. From the o...

Re: Best song TT has done since leaving Strato

The RR demo sounds better than New Era but it's literally a Strato album so it doesn't count. +1 for Trinity. I think it is the last time Tolkki tried to do something new and didn't retread on his former work. I liked In Paradisum and Avalon 1, and a few songs on 2/3, but all of those seem like pale...
