First song I've ever heard was "Against The Wind" when I was 7 years old. Full album was "Visions" at the age of 7 too (Stratofan for almost 10 years :D)

Mine were "The Chosen Ones" and "Infinite" back in 2001. But the first song was either "Black Diamond" or "Against the Wind", not sure which was really first between them.
And then of course the rest followed :D

My first Strato album was Infinite and for me, it's the best.
But before, I listened to Eagleheart and instantly fell in love with the band since then (and with Kotipelto's voice) :oops:
I was a huge Rhapsody fan by then (it was Power of the Dragonflame era) and the first time I didn't like the album that much... but time goes by and people change... :)

I wish I had ppl with Stratovarius logos on their back walking around at my school. I'm the only guy who really listens to Metal (I don't count those Nu-Metal/Mallcore/Emo kids).

I discovered Stratovarius in 1996. That was a magical year (I discovered 2 other favourite band same year, Rage and Blind guardian). The reason I checked them up was that Jens Johansson played im Strato, I loved his playinh with Malmsteen.

The first album i heard frpm Strato was Episode ofcourse. It blew me away directly.

Another Rage fan. Nice to see. Although Rage has sort of a cult status in german metal, they're still relatively underrated.

First thing we have in common. I guess I'm the only one at school who listen real metal (excepting an old friend who is no longer at school that listened hard rock/glam metal of the 80's), and sometimes it feels really weird when I come to the classroom with a Strato bag and everybody ask "who the hell are those guys?"

Well, at least since that big "Bundesvision Songcontest" in which Rage participated this year they made somewhat of a name for themselfes at least here in germany. It is not like everyone is a Rage fan, but at least a lot of ppl know who they are now XD

TRUE BELIVER! :beer:

I was 11 in 1999 when I have first listened to Destiny. I was a Queen and Deep Purple fan loving their fast songs. The meaning of "fast" became different with Stratovarius :D
Nothing to say.
