Andy LaRoche of King Diamond is one wicked guitarist, IMHO- even if he's more into the goth/black metal type of thing.

Yeaah!!! He did a great job for DEATH!!!!!!!
He is also very melodic guitar playa,,,,listen to Mansion in darkness from Abigail album.


But Romeo kicks a** to every guitarist that tries to play nowadays.

Staffan Stråhlman could be great choice, because he is a founder member.

Staffan Stråhlman was not a power metal guitarist, and gave up playing after he quit Stratovarius.

Revolution Stratovarius anyone?

I seriously think they should pick up the SA guitarist, his style fits PERFECTLY with the direction I hear Stratovarius going in.

Well, there's a very talented guitarist (actually not just talented, he's a real professional musician) that would be the perfect substitute imo. TK is in his friend-list at his myspace so I guess he must be in TK's friend-list as well. Maybe the remaining StratoGuys would look toward that direction? It's not so far, just some kilometers away from Helsinki to a land that has given birth to the Finnish epic ;) As far as I know he was reached by another Finnish band to join them some years ago but finally that never happened.

Who knows? :roll:

Alex Rosen, yeah he's awsome.

Strato will probably go for someone Scandinavian, though. I'm sure they know many people!

the new guitarist is ...playback, a session musician will record and they will just use playback and have a midget danceing around with a axe with strings on it. all part of the milli stratonilli band. you can blame this whole mess on the rain

Yes, he's the one. :) There was Kotipelto's interview in the latest Soundi magazine. And a cute picture of the boys together as well. Unfortunately I don't have a scanner here. :(

There were some questions about Kotipelto's career. Nothing new actually.

Jens, Lauri, TK & Matias have been making songs for the new album. The new album will be more versatile and a bit more progressive than former albums. The band name thing isn't decided yet. Some of them might like to keep the name, someone absolutely wouldn't. Also the name "Strato" has been considered.

Something else to mention? I don't remember exactly. I think these were the main points.
