Great stuff! :lol: I must say, your "swooping style" of photography has an interesting effect on the senses. :crazy1:
Thanks for letting us in on the secrets of making great music, but I must say, if it just took beer I'd be world famous right now. :beer: Rock on!

Thank you Lauri, thank you man.

You are all great persons. Nice, very very nice to see you enjoying and making us feel good.
Things like this are the most important right now, and only good things can emerge from environments like yours.

I'm feeling good times coming again.

Now I can listen to the songs perfectly, (I was at the office, at work).

Really fantastic songs and sounds. Now we can listen the style perfectly. Now I know you guys won't disappoint us.

The song reminds me to Hammerfall style a bit, but still keeping the StratoElements. Nice! I1m really looking forward to the new material. :)

Finally some solid news with no bullshit rumors or speculation! :)

I literally said "FUCK YEAH!" out loud when I heard that Johansson solo! Matias' solo around 1:00 in the video is superb! It's definitely got that classic melodic Strato style and doesn't skimp on the shred aspect either! I love the sustained choir sound of Johansson's keys towards the end of the video too. Thank you Lauri for posting something with substance behind it; glad to see you guys have moved on passed the drama and are progressing together!

P.S. Lauri, are you wearing a COBHC hoodie? :) Tell that rockstar asshole Laiho to get his ass in gear and call you up to finish the new Sinergy damn it (after the new strato of course)! :P

When I listen to Kotipelto's voice in the video....he stills sending to me shivers down my spine.

Cannot exist, cannot exist, will never exist a voice like Kotipelto's voice. Like God cannot exist because his attributes would require limits, it cannot exist a similar voice.

I'm still crying listening Father time, Season of Change, Speed of light, Eternity, LOTW.... And now seeing this guys again together having fun, it makes me feel extremely good.
It's a pity that they (Tolkki and the rest) cannot exist together. Tolkki is the best composer and cannot exist a better one. Jens is the best keyboardist and cannot exist a better one, the same with Jörg on drums.

I will always have this guys in my heart.

Will never exist better musicians. Never. It's my opinion and it is enough for me. And they are here with us, sharing all his emotions.

I just hope to see them playing classics again, because only Kotipelto can sing the classical Stratovarius songs. I don't want to see the name of Stratovarius death, I don't want to forget Stratovarius feelings. Stratovarius will always exist, because Stratovarius is Eternity.

I'm sure it has that effect on every stratovarius fan, it's surely effected my work as I'm persuing a similiar direction with my band.
