Re: We All Support You, Timo Tolkki!

It's obvious that you bumped this thread to see negative reactions since not everyone supports Timo now. We're not stupid, don't try to act like you bumped this thread for positive reasons. Even I know you well enough that you wouldn't bump this for positive reasons.

Dude, this is just really shallow to bump this thread. Timo wouldn't stand for something this mean and neither would Jens. This thread should be locked.

Re: revolution renaissance website!

Gus doesn't match the older songs at all (he sounds terrible in Last Night on Earth), but he is incredible in the newer songs. So I have a lot of hope. :)

Re: Petition for Jens

Actually MySpace now has a new music player that allows ten songs uploaded. Right now, the Strato MySpace only has about 6 songs on it. So if you really wanted to you could add it. :)

Re: Elements Pt. 1 & 2 Reviews

I know reviews are completely useless in terms of forming your own opinion. But it's still fun to just look at them and see what other people think of them.

Elements Pt. 1 & 2 Reviews

So, I've always seen fan reviews of both parts (and a lot of them negative), and I rarely ever see professional reviews of either of them. Since I live in America, it's hard for me to find anything Stratovarius, even on the Internet. So, what are some professional reviews of the elements saga? I bas...

Re: Meanwhile in Finland...

I couldn't hear too well because of the bad quality of both my speakers and that video. xP

So I got a question:

Was Jorg using double-bass?

Re: Upcoming Revolution Renaissance tour close to be cancelled?

The band has seemed completely dead if you ask me. No updates, a bunch of cancelled shows, and just Timo Tolkki's reaction to Kotipelto's statements. The band just seems inactive right now. I doubt they'll cancel their shows...though there's a good chance they will. Has their permanent line up even ...

Stratovarius MySpace Deserves a BIG Update

I mean, it's so plain, and there's nothing going on! It feels like an amateur band just starting up! I suggest at least getting a new picture without Tolkki in it, at least. There needs to be more there than just blogs! I'd suggest the Myspace page gets an enormous, GIGANTIC overhaul as soon as ther...

Re: Revolution Renaissance demo w/ Kotipelto

I enjoyed the demos a lot more than the actual album. The music may still sound boring and uninspired, but at least TK had emotion going on, which is something that Kiske definitely was not doing. Kiske sounded bored, and careless. Kotipelto sounded energetic, and emotional. I'd rather hear Kotipelt...

Re: 030366!

I, personally, hated Episode. It was just a mess, and wasn't coherently put together at all. It is probably my least favorite Stratovarius album next to Twilight Time and Elements, Pt. 2. The only songs I can stand to listen to are Forever, Speed of Light (even though it's loads better live), and Ba...

030366!

I remember first hearing this song, and thinking...WTF!?!? I could never get that far into the song because of the creepy vibe it let off. But then I listened to the entire thing, and right when it started going "0, 3, 0, 3, 6 6!", I immediately fell in love with the song. It may not be Stratovarius...

Question About Video

So, Matias posted a video called Shredding Part I: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZqhoS49d8U Now, my question is, is that Kotipelto's voice during that, or did you just find an old track you've worked on, and just showed us what the new Stratovarius might sound like? It sounds a lot like TK's voice...

Re: New guitar player, and future plans

It's funny Jens, your entire career you have been known for working with Metal Gods like Yngwie, Dio, and Timo Tolkki. You've always been upstaged with the three main bands you are known for, so it's really nice to see that you finally will get recognition, not only for your incredible keyboard skil...

Re: HERMAN LI IS AN ALIEN!!!

I do not like Dragonforce that much at all. They have no heart in their music. They are all about being "rockstars" and not about being artists. And, in my opinion, heart is just as important to the music as the music itself. And Dragonforce has no heart.

And their music all sounds the same.

With all of the hate going around, I think we should talk about more positive things! I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer to keep things positive during negative times.
