Re: New Stratovarius album: a list of demands

Stratovarius should do a cover of this song:



Do not fret! In due time, it will be remembered as the Pablo Picasso of power metal.

Re: Petition for Flavio Ontivero to replace Matias as producer of Stratovarius

Mr. Ontivero, with his legion of black magic witches, knows no bounds. No testicles will be left unpunched in his glorious conquest for music production perfection. Muddy soundscapes, thy days are numbered.
