Sounds great! I love the sound of Timo's voice and I am REALLY looking forward to this album! :D
Seems like it's right up my alley in taste of music anyways :) *Jumps up and down*


But I must say My Queen of Winter reminds me a little of My Selene (Sonata Arctica, written by Jani L.).

I love these samples, it sounds like if Stratovarius and Sonata arctica were somehow one band.

I think this one is an epic win

Not very good for me. I'll listen to it more, but the first impressions are not so good to me.

Sounds really good, very melodic, and very different from Stratovarius and from Kotipelto's band which is good to me, a new sound.

Does anyone knows who writes all the stuff in the album? Is it Jani or TK is contributing too?

Cheers :beer:

I do like it, a lot.
I never imagined TK to sing lyrics like that, but in the autumn when life strikes (again) I know how to relax myself. Finnish males tend to sing beautifully about females only when the relation is all over, this on the other hand may give hope for the future...

Bravo!!!!
Those samples are seemingly kind of extreme progressive and powerful ones,reminding me of Dragon Force
:wink: :wink: :wink: I love this style!

This is exactly the music I like...fast, catchy, tons of guitar riffs, a balanced amount of keyboard, and a little bit of funky grooves like towards the end of more than friends.

I will buy this immediately

thanks to Icecab for discovering the link!

I have to say sounds bright, and I don't think sounds like a mixed Strato-Sonata at all. Sounds quite fresh, but I wasn't that amazed by the songs like "Deep Unknown" amazed me a few weeks ago, but I'll have to wait till the release of the CD to give my true final opinion about Cain's Offering.

I have to agree. I have to wait to say my final word. Samples can misslead you, but those 2:14 samples sounded really great.
