Re: Leverage

I love them. They have that nice Kotipelto (the band) feel that is always nice to listen to when you don't want pure metal. Not heavy, but not too soft either. Just something that's fun to listen to. :lol:

Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria, Infinite Undiscovery, or Final Fantasy VI. The only soundtracks I cry to while listening to.

Re: Would you like Stratovarius to COVER these songs live?

Lauri Porra told my friend at a concert that he hated that they weren't able to record that album and that he loves those songs to death.

So, deep down somewhere I am sure that they want to play some of those songs. I don't think it would be right, though, and I don't think they will. :P

Isn't it funny that those who loved AOA thought Polaris sucked and those that thought Polaris was great hated AOA? it's almost as if it's done on principle because one feels they have to hate one to like the other.

Re: So, when did you encounter Strato for the first time?

My dad loved Stratovarius until he heard Fourth Dimension (he hated Kotipelto's voice). So I got into Stratovarius when I was around 5 or 6, listening to Fright Night, Twilight Time, and Dreamspace constantly when my dad loved Stratovarius. Unlike him, I loved Kotipelto's voice, so my love continued.

I think Jens should have this forum overhauled when he has the time. It's getting ridiculous.

Re: Just Kotipelto !!

I don't think Kotipelto has sounded amazing in a Strato album since Destiny.

But he always sounds incredible in his solo stuff, and he certainly sounds amazing in Cain's Offering.

I just don't get why he can't sound as good in the Strato albums anymore.

Re: Is it ever tolerable to heckle an opener? (full review 9/24)

The only time I've ever heckled an opener was at a Nightwish concert. It was Paradise Lost, which I'm sure many of you have heard. But they were just shit and the singer was a dick to the audience, so about halfway through everyone started heckling the shit out of them.

Pfft, Hansi isn't worth Dio's shit. Compared to Ozzy, though, Hansi sounds miles better. In fact, Ozzy has always been a shitty singer who was just lucky enough to appear in the beginnings of metal before vocals actually mattered. If Dio was in Sabbath before Ozzy, and Dio left and Ozzy applied, Iom...
