In my Humble opinion, one of the most annoying cites in Finland. I´d never like to live there. (But Pori is e.q. more awful...)

Nothing to add to the setlist Nakkikoju posted, even I can't remember the exact order of the songs.

Band looked and sounded better than in a long time. I believe that Lauri entering the band has brought a lot energy to the performance. Little teasing between Lauri and TT (something like crabbing the balls). Lauri really is a definite rockstar!!! Jens on the other hand was a bit down from his usual performance. Few highpoints but nothing like the Jens we have used to see.

What more can I say? Well, in the middle of the show TK took a digitalcamera of someone on the audience and started taking pictures...

I'll info you all more later, if you wish to know more... Great show all the way through...

If there's Destiny in any setlist, then it is special. :)

On exactly where do you base your comment? Have you lived here in some point of your life? I know this is not Helsinki or even comparable to any other big cities, but at least I like living here! I personally feel that Pori is discriminated everywhere else in Finland!

I'm saying this about Black Diamond. It's my third fav song, but Destiny owns it, accept it. :)

Same here, BUT I prefer nearly every other epic strato-songs compared to this boring one. :roll:

Infinity is defitely the best epic by Strato. Destiny is good also but I'm a bit bored with it because it basicly is just normal song that is just longer. Visions is also good.

I haven't listen to the ones on both elements much so I will not comment on them. Still haven't bought Pt2. Maybe sometime later...

That's the kind of sentence that (can) make me hit my head to the wall. Of course everyone has his own opinion and is free to think whatever he/she wants, but I personally think that Destiny is one of the 5 best Strato songs.
Compared to it, Infinity and Fantasia would be one of the 10 worst Strato songs. No honestly, those 2 songs are boring like hell !

back to the Lahti and Pori topic : I have never been there, but it CANNOT be that boring compared to Kemi or Loimaa or Jämsä !

WTF? :w00t: IMHO then you can´t understand about real music at all if you consider Infinity as boring crap. Destiny could be that kinda instead of as THAT IS BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING, but honestly saying, but it isn´t so crap at all. But cannot find any seconds from Infinity where I could feel even a bit boring. Never. It´s a total masterpiece where you get peace of mind.

Sorry for OT so much. :wink:

And speaking ´bout Lahti or more Pori. They´re not so boring towns, but disgusting & awful, especially Pori. :x

"Infiniiiityyyy... where do we go from here... Infiniiiiityyy" in loop for at least 30 seconds for every chorus, and more than 1mn for the last part.
the Destiny chorus last for about 15 seconds, and the song has many different parts. You are the one who should open your ears.

GRR. I could write now here everything not so nice but of course I don´t do so, because that could be just totally useless.

But I stand with my opinion that you could even fall asleep when listening Destiny...

And you must have talked about Zenith of Power instead when talking about the all-time similar choruses. :wink:

I agree with you Icebraker, the intro of Destiny is good, but then the song changes quite boring. I can't listen it to the end... But Infinity is something diffrent. The lyrics are very interesting.. Well.. everyone has right for his/her opinion...

About Pori; I've never been there so I won't say bad about it.. I'll cheer for them if they beat Kärpät :wink:

Well, if it's a part of the topic, your opinion is always welcome, as long as it is "constructive"

Here's my opinion about Destiny and Infinity...
Basically, I'm not a big fan of long-lasting songs but comparing these two, Destiny feels more "full" in my head, whereas Infinity is lacking something, I don't know what...Maybe if it was combined with Celestial Dream in one?
