Now that is a good question!

Everyone is having a bit of time off now and also writing songs. So the closest estimate I could give would be "2014"..

There is no strict plan, the progress in songwriting will dictate the next steps I guess. I have to say I like it :)

Fantastic!

The amount of music you are creating, and to have a new album every 2 years or less its amazing.

So what you want is Stratovarius' own Tales from Topographic Oceans? I don't know how the fanbase would respond to that, especially Tolkki. :P

Ooooooh! Tales from Topographic Oceans is such a waonderful album. My favorite Yes album I guess.

OT:

I'm reallly curious about the style of the next album Strato releases. It seems to change with every abum, which is something I really like. Hoping on a bit more organic and a bit less electronic for the next album. Don't get me wrong, I think Nemesis is a masterpiece, but the change from electronic to organic would make the new album sound really fresh yet again.

Elements 1 has always been the polarizing album. Half of us think it's a masterpiece, half of is think it's complete shit.

Elements 2, the majority of the reaction has been lukewarm to lukewarmer

I'd just like to see how people would respond if Strato released a double album with four 20 minute tracks, as it's not something many would expect. I'd personally love it!

Tolkki on the other hand, would absolutely hate it, considering how critical he is of the band these days.

Tolkki was actually pretty happy when Nemesis first came out.

tolkki are very happy why stratovarius and tolkki are difrent stuff....

the "war no end" when stratovarius show Polaris why this album is one style transition, tolkki/matias.

for that Polaris sound Tolkki in part.....

elysium stratovarius start to spread his wings for his own and start to take other path.

Nemesis is nothing to do with tolkki, is a full new own stratovarius style,

Tolkki are happy why stratovarius change his music, and he can be tolkki again.

stratovarius was smart about this, and in part, stratovarius save the tolkki's carrer in some mood

if stratovarius continue with the same, "This war" never end and the scandals continue forever.


This happen when the band have only 1 composer.... i dislike this horrible.......

that One band have only one head, in the future, the disaster comes.

Jens are considetaed as ones of the best keys of the world


Kotipelto vocals was who put to stratovatrius out to nordic countries.....
