It'd be pretty cool to hear those demos, it'd be a pretty different experience yet also pretty damn cool.

I have this one. It's recorded on MC and title is Stratovarius demo -94. I have to say that i like Tolkki's singing on Fright night-Dreamspace but on this one it's awful. Winter is still better with Tolkki's voice tough.

There are no Lord of the wasteland and Call of the Wilderness. Instead here is Soldiers prayer which is on Tolkki's solo album

take one old walkman (Cassete device)

conect the hearphones out to one amply or notebook, or desktop in mic "IN" and in soft console play with "Gains"

Realtek shitty standart have this options 12 or 24 DB gains

if you use asio is better, or you can edit the audio level with whatever editior as "Nero Soundtrak"

really isnt harder. you dont have a walkman from your teenage moment?

you dont have fun, really xd

this is the cable that you need

Any other news on Popkiller/4D demos/any other hidden goodies? I might need some extra stuff to pad my Strato discography binge while I'm waiting for Eternal to come out.

Are you thinking about the following three songs?
11th_Hour.mp3
Rosalie.mp3
The_Hopeless.mp3

Don't believe so. Those are from her other band, right?

I'm talking about the recordings she did with Strato.

Dude, that was just one part of their publicity stunt, having a female singer. That and tolkki getting stabbed and shit. Whatever. I bet if you go back far enough in the forum you'll read about the truth of it all. But you think they recorded vocals with that chick? :lol:

I guess Soldier Prayer on Tolkki's first soloalbum is one of the demos.

That's true. Those 3 songs are from her previous band. And the popkiller demos are probably non-existing.

Hi! This is odd. I wasn't in touch with this topic until a few weeks ago when a friend told me that a friend of Tolkki's brother got the Fourth Dimension Demos. Besides that, I didn't know they even existed! However, 3 days ago Tolkki posted in his facebook that he's got 7 Fourth Dimension demos and he'd sending the Fourth Dimension demos to everyone who sent him an email. I did, but he only sent me Against the Wind, and since I didn't want to insist with more emails, other fans sent me the other Demos they've requested separatedly. Truly a community work!
Again, I wasn't in touch with this topic. I don't know if there is even Stratovarius, Lord of the Wasteland, 030366 or Call of the Wilderness demos out there. These I've uploaded are the 7 Tolkki claimed to have.







Likely or not it's a dream that we keep and odds with our senses we'll climb. But if faith it's the answer then we've already reached it, and if spirit's a sign, then it's Only a Matter of Time.

Marvelous! Somehow you're able to get all these demos and live recordings that I never would've thought existed.

I agree with the comment from a few years back that Tolkki sounds better on Winter than Kotipelto. But all in all it's good that they went with a different singer on the album.
