Re: TOLKKI: Hopes Visions Lineup Can Reunite For Album and tour

So Matias means NOTHING to Stratovarius?? This is the biggest reason, it dwarfs any other ones. Matias doesn't in any sense mean this or that to Stratovarius, as if it was two separate things. Matias is now part of Stratovarius. And reversely, Stratovarius is now Matias' band. At this point after a...

Server move

The stratovarius.com server apparently has moved from the machine 'monaco' (I think this was in a datacenter in Los Angeles close to LAX) to 'southampton' (Ashburn, Virginia, US). Supposedly the LAX datacenter will eventually be shut down. The IP used to be (maybe still is for you depending on dns) ...

Re: Confirmed Stratovarius shows

Should be, but there is a big difference between the two bands for playing both the same time... Of course it's a big band to tour with, but as a special guest, like Helloween did on the 7 Sinners World Tour. Stratovarius during the last 3 years has done a hard work to recover fans and credibility,...

Re: Interview with Timo Kotipelto

agree with Tolkkis statement saying that the TK, TT, JM, JJ, JK era of Strato was the perfect combination (despite its behind-the-scenes shortcomings).
