Apparently this radio station played Lost Without a Trace and Lost Saga.
No, it's not the songs, but at 7:05 the interviewer mentions Lost Without a Trace and there's still some music playing. And in the very end he announces Lost Saga.

Far too short :( but sounds more than interesting!

I wonder if we don't get a single to buy this time, wouldn't it be time for announcing that by now? The album comes out in less than two months... Would've been great to see Shine In The Dark-single with album version and Timo-Jens-acoustic version!

The interview was cool! Of course you could not anything from the new album but from what the guys said- there will be songs that harken back to the traditional power Strato sound and songs that are more modern! Can't wait! :shock:
SHINE ON!

Wow, was für ein Knaller! Mit dem (Quasi-)Titelsong „My eternal dream“ lassen die finnischen Power Metal-Großmeister ihr 16. Album beeindruckend starten. Matias Kupiainens virtuoses, ebenso kraftvolles wie atemberaubend schnelles und melodisches Gitarrenspiel dominiert alles. Unterlegt wird er dabei geschickt von Jen Johanssons epischem Keyboard, während Rolf Pilve und Lauri Porra für die grundsolide Rhythmusarbeit sorgen. Darüber thront schließlich Timo Kotipelto mit seinem um keinen Deut weniger majestätisch und genial gewordenen Gesang. Wer Stratovarius oder auch nur diese Spielart des Metals mag, wird diesen Song sicher zu einem seiner Favoriten der Saison küren. Ähnliche Meriten sollten die Fünf aus Helsinki auch mit der brillanten Hymne „Shine in the dark“, dem wahr gewordenen Traum aller Neo-Classical-Fans namens „Rise above it“, dem wunderbar atmosphärischen „Feeding the fire“, der zwölfminütigen Mini-Sinfonie „Lost saga“ oder der herzzerreißenden Ballade „Fire in your eyes“ ernten. Ein großartiges Werk und sicher eines der besten in der großen Karriere dieser Band.

I do love the sight of Jens playing on a cheap children's keyboard though. :lol:

:D Was even more amazing with its intro/outro! This is the album I've been waiting for! Homage to where they have been but still being modern enough to bring something new things. There will always be haters out there that want another Elements or Visions but those album are more than a decade old. Still priceless, but are representative of that era!

Now its time to really usher in this Stratovarius era! I for one don't see to much resemblance to Cain's Offering- it is all Strato to me!!!!!

Sound outstanding! If the album is like this song it will be the pinnacle of this era!
It's a shame that Strato is becoming like Nightwish (Nightwish=Tarja) with this "Strato is only with tolkki" or "Tolkki comeback".
I love both eras and I can't wait for this album! :)

Judging by the rehearsal video on their Facebookpage they played Shine in The Dark at Wacken today!

Shame they already transposed it down a half step though.
