I am not the person to say what's right and what's wrong, but pff, this kind of things (weird things) annoy me a lot.

From his point of view could be normal to thank the national supporters (from Finland) for being there giving them the opportunity to watch the clip before, reasonable if the band members are finnish (one swedish, but a bit finnish after almost 18 years :lol: ) but for the foreign horde of fans it's a bit, at least in my oppinion, annoying ...

Well at least we will have our 2 Halcyon Days before the clip storm, the videoclip normally is one of the strong media ways of promoting the new album (it's usually uploaded before the release) and in this case, 6th of March, the hunger of music is satisfied with the new 15 songs.

PS: The albume is Awesome, the Limited Ed. Photo-booklet is really funny with those funny photos :)

Suck it rest of the world!

J/k, what a stupid stunt is that? Us Finns didn't even purchase enough of Nemesis to make it go #1 in the charts. :P

If it's any consolation, the video looks cool and should be worth the wait for you.

1) Very good videoclip

2) I love Arnold Layne

3) I m really disappointed with the decision about the "premiere" videoclip for Finns (No offense for them :) )

4) The intro of Halcyon Days Is awesome! If there's a need to cut something, why not the electro-stuff (which it's possible to not be performed live)

5) The GIRL. OK, I will go to the show and some not Strato friends told me that they will do the same if this girl performs there :P! What a girl :oops: :oops:

6) Jens seems not to be there! Fuck, he is the fucking boss, let him and his DX7 be in the clip!

I am happy with the result! Way to go :)

Very cool video! It's very simple and I like it. :)

It's very nice to see that they're doing music videos more than in the past. There is a lot of great songs in tolkki-era which they should have made videos and that's a bit shame. So it's not wrong to say that it's great that they do more music videos now.

Whose fucking idea was it to put that stupid bitch in that video? She ruins the entire damn thing and there's no reason for her to be there.

I really think the girl ruined a little bit the video. Seems from Twilight movies and I don't understand what's the point. What a pity, Halcyon Days is a really great and powerful song and It would have been a lot better to see just the band playing. I'm a bit dissapointed with the video, I don't agree with the style, but well, it was their decision.

Theoretically, if they want to put girls in the video to sell more records (if that was the case) they are gonna have to show more tits and assess.

Well, I like it more than the Deep Unknown one :lol:

I would've loved it if there would've been some real storyline behind the girl, for example she's at home or at school putting in her earplugs, and by that her mind "beams" her into these rooms full of that awesome fanstuff and the band, or even into a live show so that would've been her own "halcyon days", and in the end when the song is over she falls back into reality, or something like that... Also I don't get why there was a need to "decorate" those miserable plastic trees and water and loads of fog around the band members when it wasn't neccessary for the main idea of the vid - we already had the Deep Unknown vid with to much visual effects, and I prefer clear vids like COB's Trashed, Lost & Strungout for example, but well ok that's personal opinion. And as usual, there's a serious lack of Matias and Jens!

I'm happy with the Lauri amount in it though 8)

I don't get such videos. Is there any sort of a message there? What's wrong with that girl and why the bands looks like it's playing another song?
Well, it seems they've already used all their funds on the album which is a great thing, so there is really nothing to regret about. Now I forget about watching this video without any hard feelings.

"Nemesis" reached #16 on Billboard "Heatseeker" album chart in the US. For a brand of music that gets next to nothing in media publicity, its pretty good. Congrats are still in order for an amazing album!
SHINE ON!

Record sales (ESPECIALLY IN THE USA) are a really bad way to measure how great a band is.

Yes it's true robo, but I think it is really surprising and positive to see an Stratovarius album that high. Seems the sales are going well. Of course I'm not sating sales = quality. It is the opposite usually :lol: , but you know, that positions are really positive for an Stratovarius album!! And more if you see how fantastic Nemesis is!!

Yeah, I wonder if they count people downloading from itunes and amazon in different parts of the world towards the record sales count for that part of the world. But yeah too, don't obsess over the new album too much because then you get tired of it too quick. (at least that happens to me, I get OVERLOADED :oops: )
