Shame we're not getting a 'Making of Eternal clip' every week. Would be fun to see what the guys are doing. And since they've reached over a million followers on for example Facebook they'd reach a large audience and make a lot of people anticipate the album.

(Oh, how I'd love to handle the bands' promotion. :) )

Totally agree! Album in three months, and all we have so far except of the title is: One announcement by Edel and two or three pictures on facebook. That's not really much :lol:

On the other hand... if I had to choose between the label putting money and effort into big pre-release-marketing OR into a big headlining tour instead (and I mean a REAL headlining tour, not that double-headline-crap!), I'd know what to choose :lol:

Still, I wonder if there's a certain reason for that rather small announcement so far... I hope Edel wasn't somewhat "disappointed" with the outcome of the bigger Nemesis promotion last time???

I most certainly agree! But these making of videos could be created by the guys themselves for example. Let them vlog in the studio and upload a video every week/two weeks of even every month. Doesn't have to cost anything, and could still reach a lot of people.

I do also really wish for Strato to have a really nice tour with a nice stage design and professional light show again a la Elements Tour. Let the label put the money in that.

I'm not sure if the image shows up but it looks like it may be the theme of the cover art. This came from the Twisted Talent site! It's stunning from what I can see... Almost an ocean theme and of course the Stratoship is back!!!! Let's get exciting!!!!![/list]

Release seems to have been postponed to September 11th according to facebook, unofficial source though. CD Japan just says "release date cancelled" atm.

I saw and interview with TK earlier today in which he said that the release is postponed to September indeed.

There it is.

He also doesn't seem quite confident talking about the new album.

I kind of got that vibe, too... it sounded like he was saying, "Yeah it's uh, kinda sorta old Stratovarius, there's some good songs... You'd have to ask the other guys, I'm not the right one to ask" - what?!

Not worried, I know the album is gonna be great, but he didn't really sell it. Maybe he was just tired after the band's set, or couldn't find the right words in English? Who knows.

Yes! He wrote with Jain again! Hopefully that means some fast power metal. :D :) :D :)

About the last thing I'd like to hear.

German GEMA doesn't want me to watch it, oh well.

I'm glad they're doing more work with Jani, when they did on the last album it was pretty amazing.
Although Timo seemed kinda out of it in that interview...tired maybe? Or maybe he just doesn't want to raise false hopes.

Yeah I agree.

In the interview TK said they're mixing it right now. So recodings are finished. You'd think some more information (tracklist, info about a single, etc.) could be released.

In that interview, TK seems quite burned out. Seems he is not having so much interest either. Really surprising tbh.

Don't know what to think :?

:roll: He must have been drinking to many beers. Or got some blackout. Hope the record company doesn't read this. He is to much with that cheesy Limatoonen.
