Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

If I had the cash I would ship it to the White House. :) Yes. If I had enough money I’d send Tolkki in a box to North Korea. :lol: *drinks cup of noodles while chugging the cheapest Mexican beer* You see...love is life and life is love..

I guess it doesn't conform to robocop's query.

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

I realized after listening to this that I really love memorable poppy vocals lines, so that's the reason I was so hard on the melodies here; they lacked that quality, for the most part. Anyway, I'll be back for Holy Land soon... Can you post a song or album where you enjoy the whole thing? Producti...

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

Give it another listen. I think the production is pristine, though its not a very heavy album. It was produced by Charlie Bauerfeind and Sascha Paeth: two really famous producers you probably already heard of. Temple of Shadows is a lot more conventional progressive/power metal album and I can resp...

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

I'll have to listen to Angra's Holy Land, then. I never got into Angra. At least the songs I've listened to were kind of generic. I'd like to listen to Angra on a beach in Brazil surrounded by oiled up AI sex bots while chugging a bottle of the cheapest beer. Talking serious...I was never a huge fa...

Speaking of Angra, I went to go take a look at their Metal Archives page and was stunned to see so many 90+ rated albums! :shock: I've never listened to them before, but based on those reviews, I think I'm going to change that now. One of the first albums I heard from them in the early 2000s. Impul...

Nice to read all your thoughts about "minor songs" in Stratovarius discography.

Re: Happy birthday Infinite

Side note: I know a lot of people tend to record drums in a completely dry room to get rid of reflections or unwanted frequencies but this kills the "character" and, to some extent, dynamics and transients: a dead room is good only if it's a small square room, if it's a room with a strange shape or...

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

I noticed that, in general, it is a constant in the newer productions (Blind Guardian's Beyond the Red Mirror and Luca Turilli's stuff are so dull I find them annoying) since they give a lot of prominence to orchestrations by layering the sound and this weights down everything. Furthermore, mixing ...
