Re: New to the band!! What is everyone's top songs?

Hello everyone! I only recently discovered the band since I'm not really into metal (although I listen to some). I'm not really sure what are the fan favorites so I thought I'd ask people still active here about their fav/top songs. Mine is Elysium. :D Elysium is mindblowing. It incorporates all th...

Re: Stratovarius back to work. Finally!

The snippet is impressive and unexpected. I am glad they try different things and I wish the guys have gathered new inspiration and let the creativity really flow free.

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

In one skype interview uploaded in youtube some months ago, TT told that he has written "half" of the songs in Avalon III. That youtube clip can be found in the timeline of TT in facebook if you have patience to scroll and watch everything he posted... he posted very much last summer. Anyway, really...

Re: Rate all Stratovarius album!

Fright Night : Interesting and some catching moments, for me this is not a must one, but not bad either. Guitar work is already brilliant. Twilight time : This is just awesome. I love every song except Metal Frenzy. Hands of Time and Lead Us into Light are my favorites, could listen them whole day ...

Re: I listened to the two Keeper of the Seven Keys albums

And found out where Tolkki got his ideas for the first 3 albums. Not to mention all the key references throughout the discography. Sure! Being a fan of Tolkki's Stratovarius and not listening Keeper of 7 albums, is like going to church every sunday but not reading the Bible. Those albums are just m...

Re: Enigma: Intermission Pt.2 opinions

I like the album, very nice to have all those great and forgotten bonus tracks on one disc. I'm also glad they decided to not include "Endless Forest" wich I feel bit ridiculous. Though and orchestral version of it would have been OK. What comes to live show sets, I am disappointed they chose to inc...

Re: What is "Holy light" (in Visions)'s classical

I see it is included in a collection called "Classics in the metal". Most of the tracks in this collection seem to be adapted from classical music. I once saw someone commented it is from one of Bach's pieces (but didn't indicate which one). Anyone have a clue? "sounds like Bach's Lute Prelude in C...

Re: Loppuhuipennus klassisella kokoonpanolla?

Hauska idea, vaikkei millään tavalla realistinen. Entäpä ajatus konserista johon TT tulisi *laulamaan* ekojen levyjen biisit (ja miksei soittamaankin)? Olisin valmis matkustamaan mihin tahansa nähdäkseni sen keikan :)

It is nice and interesting album and IMO important piece of Stratovarius' history. Of course next albums showed rapid progression, but I wouldn't call Fright Night a bad one. Maybe the sounds were bit old'ish.
