How long you´ve been listening to Stratovarius?

Post by Joostice » Fri Feb 11, 2005 9:14 am

Well that´s the question, just to know.

I´ve been listening to them since 5 years, I´ve got all their albums since then too.
I´ve saw them live once in the elements tour.

I guess a lot of guys from the forum are new fans.

I bought my first Strato-album (which was also my first metal-album ever) some 6 years ago, though I first heard them about two years earlier and already then I liked them very very much.

Let's see, I've been Stratofan for 3 years now. I saw Hutning High And Low on TV and bought Infinite. I was impresed by this album, but it wasn't until a friend loaned me Fourth Dimension that I really got interested in them.

3½ years ago I listened mainly to mainstream crap, like Linkin Park and all that. Then, one time at a friend's house I heard a song called Visions by some (to me) totally unknown finnish metal band..
Nothing has been the same after that. I was "converted" to a metalhead almost instanteously. :)

I was right :wink: , a lot of you are new fans.

Some of you are so lucky seen Strato on TV, Here in my country you´ll never see a metal band on TV or Radio, it´s an underground style of music, but it is also a massive style. The last show of Stratovarius here in Chile was the Elements tour and the stadium was full with 5000 people.

The "Chosen Ones" is a good compilation&the cartoon cartiatures of the band are reay cute! :D
Tolkki also has a great message in the CD. Hope you can get it someday! :)

5 years, I think.
I picked Infinte few months after its release. But I became a 'fan' few years or so later.

Its great you live in a country which plays Stratovarius on the Radio! I requested a StratoSong on USA Station&the DJ did not even know who I was talking about!!!!! :eek: :~( :pissed:

Hopefully, all that will change pretty soon! ;)

I've been listening to it since last august. Not so long though. The first time I heard the band I was sold out. From that moment I wanted to listne to that band. I got to know the band at a music camp in Lapland where one pal of mine played me Destiny.

I just asked from one of my dad's friend(he works in a music shop) that could I get some Strato notes, but he said that Kotipelto had posted 'em that they are no longer availeble. I apologise my terrible English. :lol:

Well i listen the first Stratovarius music a long time ago it was Forever, it was playing in a local radio in a heavy dedicated program (Today is still one of my favourite Strato songs, well who don´t like this music!!).
But i buy my first albun "The choosen ones" more or less 5 years ago (end of 1999 begin of 2000).
Now i have all studio albuns, a few singles, dvd....

I never saw them live. They already come at Portugal at least 2 times (Visions and Elements tour, i think), but i could never go to see them. I will see Stratovarius live in next albun tour (they will come Portugal, i know that, i only don´t know when!!).

7 years would get close. Visions Of Europe was my first album I think.
