Strato videos were great, they had that special feeling. And the best is that you can always see the band a lot in the videos, other bands ar emore oriented to effects and other stuff, I like some effects, etc, etc but I prefer to see the band a lot.
I have to disagree. Performance only music videos are very boring. Eagleheart or Future shock for example was very boring in my opinion.

But not for me! Eagleheart videoclip is amazing for me. You know, all the bands have always some videoclip. Stratovarius always had something, it doesnt matter if its Eagleheart or something like Black Diamond or I walk to my own song or Against the wind. It's funny and its another way to see your favourite band. Anyway I respect if you don't like the videoclip thing.

You know, for me looking on a video were the band is just standing there and playing is booring. If I want to hear the song and see the band I turn the CD player on and take a look at the booklet or I go to a concert. For me a music video has to be something special, like "Hunting High and Low" for example. Or for example the band Masterplan. "Enlighten Me" and "Lost and Gone" were both only performance videos and especialy the last one is very boring. But the "Back for My Life" video actually tells a short story and that makes it special. This is just my opinion.

Ah ok, so you meant that you like to see some kind of "concept" in the video, a little story. Isn't it? Like SOS or HHAL, but you don't like something like Eagleheart that there's nothing more, just the band playing. I understand. Well I like both kind of videos :)

Yes. It doesn't have to be a story. It also can be footage from the studio or live material. Like Against the wind or Black Diamond.

:party: woow!! that is great, congratulations Stratovarius you are the best. Here in Chile May 21st is the day of the Naval combat of Iquique it's a great day for my country when we remember the soldiers who died for us and now it will be very much a big this date because also Stratovarius's return will be commemorated :) "The war is unequal, but, spirit and courage. Our flag has never been lowered in front of the enemy and I hope it is not this the occasion of making it. For my part, I assure you that while me alive, that flag will flame in its place and if I die, my officials will know how to fulfill its duty." so never give up regards from Chile :headbang:

I also like both kind of videos as well, I like a big concept type video but at the same time I also like a video where the band just plays and has a good time.

I read somewhere (don't remember where) that Strato would perform headlining tour in Europe in January 2010.

I wouldn't mind seeing a few new wallpapers, I'm sure some fans would like to see some pics of the current lineup

Yes it's the typical chorus that you can't get out of your head. Anyway it doesn't sound like previous Stratovarius I think. That kind of chorus sounds more like Blind guardian (not now) or Hammerfall(not now) or something like that (my opinion). And it's cool to hear that kind of variations too.

The main differences I find while listening to the video is that we'll have more keyboards and faster guitar. The first word coming to my mind when I saw the video was: frantic.

From what I've heard from the sound clips, the music sounds comfortable enough for the Stratovarius fans, but fresh enough for new fans.

Sounds perfect so far.
