Re: Infernal Maze live in Taipei

Kotipelto sounds awful during the chorus IN STUDIO. I don't want to imagine how bad he sounds in it live, especially considering he sounded awful during that entire video.

The song would be perfect if it were not for the chorus though.

Re: New Symfonia song on YouTube 'In Paradisum'

That was fantastic. For a forum with such low standards (just joking guys, but come on most of you like WINTER FUCKING SKIES! :lol: ), you certainly are really picky with this. It's better than most of any of his stuff after 2003, though. Winter Skies is awesome. And this is mediocre. But I'm sure ...

Does no one hear the lyric in "The Game Never Ends" that sounds exactly like "Brothers and sisters who made out together"?

Hopefully it is as good as Cold Embrace of Fear and not as crappy as Frozen Tears of Angels.

Re: TT interview (in finnish)

Ugh, I wish the media would stop comparing Symfonia's demos to the Visions-era Stratovarius. This will create a gigantic hype for fans, so when they listen to it and it sounds nothing like Visions to them, they will complain solely because it does not sound like Visions.

4th Reich, Hold Onto Your Dream, and even though it is technically not a "Stratovarius" song, Soldier's Prayer is easily my favorite song that Timo has ever sung on.

Re: To bring an end to the Tolkki vs Lehtiniemi scandal

I am believing Tolkki on this one. Not sure about the whole "Identity Theft" thing, but honestly, if Santtu Claus is really thinking about pressing charges on Tolkki based on fake forum accounts, I think that is pretty sad.

They had energy and power with their old stuff, and their old stuff was beyond awful. Now they have energy, power, AND creativity, which makes them a far better band.

Re: Last Albums you got

Just got the new Helloween, Firewind and Star One. Helloween is fantastic, Firewind is typical Firewind (AKA, I don't remember any of it) but it still sounds good.

I am scared to hear Star One. I loved the first Star One, but I absolutely hated what I heard from the samples.

Re: Firewind - Days of Defiance leaked

Listened to it. It's pretty good, but typical Firewind. I wish they would go back to their heavier days and mix it with the softer Apollo stuff, but oh well. It still sounds great.

Nothing memorable though.
