Re: Halcyon Days vid teaser!

"Nemesis" reached #16 on Billboard "Heatseeker" album chart in the US. For a brand of music that gets next to nothing in media publicity, its pretty good. Congrats are still in order for an amazing album!

Re: Nemesis Tracklisting and Artwork Released!

Am I the only one who thinks nemesis artwork is one of the bests strato-artworks ? No, it took me awhile to like it myself. It is a very different cover than what we usually get from the band. The colors are very striking (look at me sounding like an art snob LOL!). Either way I love it! The Japane...

Re: Open Letter to Jens

Especially "Kill it with Fire" offers many of the best Stratovarius-, Johansson Brothers- and Malmsteen-Trademarks combined! This song with its Keyboard-"overkill" :D is outstanding. It is the coolest neoclassicel keyboard arrangement I have heard in years. True, that was exactly what came to my mi...

Re: Nemesis Tracklisting and Artwork Released!

just heard the two bonus tracks. IMO they made the right choices with what to put on the album and what to make a bonus track. I agree as well, the cohesiveness of the album is extremely strong! But I must admit Hunter is shreds! The guitar/key solo and choir arrangements are incredible ! Now bring...

Re: Favourite song on Nemesis?

It is going to have to be two way tie right now for me between Stand My Ground and Nemesis. The whole album is amazing but these to resound in my mind. Infectious, Heavy, Melodic, Epic, and I can go on and on!

It seems a lot of you are taking a shine to the album, that's great :) if you haven't pre-ordered the album yet, then go BUY IT or else i'll drop a big pile of p.o.o on your house lol.
