This what Jani Liimatainen posted on his blog:

The new Stratovarius album
At first I thought I wouldn't comment on this before it comes out, but as there is NO harm I can do by just commenting on it -especially considering what I have to say about it- and everyone probably knows that I've heard it already so I'll share some thoughts. What do I think about it:

I think it's the best album they've done since "Infinite", maybe even better than that. Hard to say really, but it is REALLY good. Someone asked about my favorite tracks from the album, I've had a chance to listen to it through a few times now and my favorite tracks -in no particular order- are "Nemesis", "If The Story Is Over" and "Halcyon Days".

Why am I writing this? No, I'm not bragging because I got to hear it before everyone else, it's because it really is a great album and I hope, no, I command you all to go and buy it when it comes out. Really, in my opinion, it is that good.

Now I'll get back to my drinking, it's great to have some time off :)

EDIT:

No, this is not a paid advertisement :)

Yes! In Spain RTVE played yesterday the song and here is the podcast too! http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/el-v ... 2/1610510/

Excellent song, but there's no solo xD! Well, now It's time to say : Kupiainen, you are my god!

I'am really curious about how they will manage to play that kind of songs on stage, it's something really more elaborated than ever before!

Anyway, I am really happy to see that Stratovarius are the FUCKERMOTHER HEAVY FINNISH LORDS! Poor Jens, with this kind of songs he will need more than one keyboard to play all the keyboards parts on that song!

Enjoy it! Now it's time to sat that this moment is Unbreakable :D :D

Just heard the song at that Spanish radio, and MY GOD! It's just a great song for a single, so powerful and invigorating! The part that comes after the second chorus is just motherfucking glorious, my head stills hurts from such headbanging! Yeah, maybe it doesn't have a solo, but the intense riffs it plays is something I haven't heard from Stratovarius in a while. "Unbreakable", it's a heavy yet melodic, mind-blowing, right-in-your-face power metal song. Matias, you genius son of a bitch :D

You carry me away, Tomooorrow we're Unbreakable!! (8) Oh, hell, for me the best is the last chorus, it's an agonic chorus...) Oh, this is an excellent song for a videoclip !

And I prefer Kotipelto singing on this tune, better for him, better for my ears! He's a great singer, and from now on better to sing on his vocal range!

Preordered Nemesis and waiting for my Unbreakable EP! And Waiting for Razzmatazz 2 concert! I am really motivated now with this new material!

Unbreakable = Untouchable. WHAT THE HELLLL was THAT? :headbang: That was amazing! I'm for those who may disagree.....Strongest single in the last ten years....Jani is right, since Infinite. Its a little aggressive, a little epic, alot of melodic, and an abundance of Stratovarius. Congrats to Timo, Matias, Jens, Lauri, and Rolf. You have beat the odds again my favorite band in the world. You are unbreakable! :ola:

Best Strato song in years!! I like this even more than Deep Unknown.

+1 for the heavy guitars. I also like that the song has a strong melody without being too cheesy or forced a-la "forever is today".

Sounds like the work of the great Matias to me.

Can't listen as I'd like to listen to the song right now, cause I'm at work, but I will listen later!
I like a lot the way Jani is talking about the album. OMFG, Stratovarius rise again! Even in the spanish media...that didn't happen since...Visions I think :)

:!: :!: :!:

The amount of awesomeness in this song and the absolute harmony between every member of the band while playing is INCREDIBLE. PERFECT line-up.

From 2,44 on forward is just WONDERFUL.


This Rolf is just an awesome add to this band, seriously. Can't wait to know this guy next april and see them all again.

This is an evolution of what we have been seeing since Polaris, and Elysium mainly. Wow...

GRACIAS.

Dunno what to say, this song is so powerful and strong and positive and melodic and heavy at the same time - I'm stunned! That cheesy feeling I had when listening just to the trailer is gone, instead I'm listening to the song continuously, replay replay replay replay replay replay replay replay replay replay replay... Matias, you're a fucking genious :) I should have known you guys wouldn't let me down :oops: People, imagine how that song will sound at best CD quality in decent speakers at full volume :jump:

I was thinking about that a few days ago. And now that I heard the complete song, I think the same. This song, especially from the chorus after the riffing to the end really needs all the synths, also in a live setting, the choir parts, the piano parts, everything. So I hope he uses more synths, or they have some parts on a track.

About the song: I'm ecstatic. What a wonderful, powerful song. And those vocals, TK, keep this range. It suits you. It sounds better than ever. Can't wait for the album.

A great song indeed.

To me aside "Deep Unknown" the best past-Tolkki-Song. This new song "Unbreakable" definitely proves the autonom functioning songwriting of the new Strato-Line-up over the years.

Marvelous keyboards and a great catchy vocal-hookline. In the beginning a lovely pop-music- approach (in the best sense of the word) then turning into a melodic rock song with some small prog-elements. This in combination is exactly what I want to hear from Stratovarius. Again I have to confess that I love Jens keyboard-work and pray from year to year for stronger songwriting "percentages" of Jens.

I keep fingers crossed that the finnish people will buy this song straight to position one of the finnish single-charts.

Even more important:
I also keep fingers crossed that the Stratovarius guys and their management and label! are able to unite forces to promote this song in a MASSIVE way. Of course a clever! made video with a new approach and smart-thought in visuals and (surprising good) story-Line would help! The last years proved in several cases that a smart-made video (does not need to have a big budget) spreads through the web when it offers something new! and clever! Best example: "somebody that i used to know" http://youtu.be/MsoRSI7ei4E

So Strato-Guys: please do some brainstorming, make a mindblowing video-concept or ask a creative media-agency for help and get the place in music-history you deserve for so long.

Maybe this could get promoted if their promotion department actually responded to sites wanting to go out of their way to promote it...
They let us have signatures on this forum???
