Re: New Sonata Arctica Single

I went to a Sonata Arctica concert the other day and it was very lifeless. No one besides Tony was having fun on stage. I think the guy is role playing as Freddie Mercury and the others are bored as hell. By contrast its incredible how much energy and chemistry the band has in the live footage from...

Re: New Sonata Arctica Single

I really want to like it but I'm not gonna lie, it didn't really hit home for me. I wasn't a huge fan of the mixing but also I have zero mixing experience or knowledge so I could be totally wrong. I just thought it was lacking, it sounded like it wasn't fully finished yet. Idk, maybe the rest of the...

Re: Enigma: Intermission Pt.2 opinions

I like the album, I think it'll hold me over until their next release. I'd only heard about half of the bonus tracks before so lots of this was new material. Hallowed, Castaway, Fireborn and Kill It With Fire are some favs. I wasn't crazy about Second Sight but I think that's the only song I have an...

Re: Fright Night

It's pretty sad to admit but even after listening to Fright Night about 6 or 7 times (I generally need 2 listens), I can't seem to remember how the songs go, except Future Shock thanks to the 96 version and then I just remember the "fright night" sung in the title song. Ofc if I start listening to ...

Re: Did Flavio kill the forum?

Jesus it's been so fucking long... he probs killed it and also forums just aren't popular anymore. Doesn't help that Stratovarius is a small band either so it's not like anyone is looking for this thing. I still try to check in.

Re: How do I play music?

I need help from sensible persons. What is it exactly that I have to do with the hands? :( Depends. I'm a violinist (for 15 years now) and it's easier than some instruments. Unlike piano you only need one hand to hit notes and don't use your feet, and unlike wind instruments you don't have to worry...

So far surprisingly things are still sort of okay but are still pretty bad but not bad enough that we will die yet in America. Washington state at least. Can't speak for the more conservative places.
