If you consider Twilight Time - Visions era "old writing", well, then my answer is old writing.

I like both of them. But if there was an obligation to choose one, that would be the first logo because of Dreamspace & Episode being my favorite albums of Strato! :wink:

Old stratovarius logo is million times better. And the new logo is much more cheesy than old, in my opinion.

Old. Absolutely. My favourite albums are the four first ones. They have much more variety and better songs IMO.

old writing has a nice touch of "old-school" but new one is also nice. The newest one as on Elements are modern... Maybe a mix of all of them?

Or if we wouldn't find a solution for everybody, just change the band name :D

Old writing gets my vote.

I like the older more, but the S is sexy in the older one, so why not a merged of the two? :)

its wierd: most of the people who posted messages said to prefer the old style. still, the new one has more votes.
i prefer the new style. i dont like much the first 3 albums because of the voice and the bad sound. tolki is not a brilliant singer, he's ok for backing vocals, but him place is on guitar not on lead voice. i like very much the intrumental songs from old albums(fire dance, metal frezy,etc.)
