which one in your opinion is the fastest Stratovarius song?

Here musicians can talk to each other about making music etc. Of course if you are not a musician you are still welcomed to this board, but the topics should somehow be about making music.

which one in your opinion is the fastest Stratovarius song?

Post by littledrummerboy_gr » Tue Jul 05, 2005 7:18 pm

I believe that the fastest one is "find your own voice" and then come "speed of light" and "father time"

Babylon and Awaken the Giant :lol:

No, it's Speed of Light, Find Your Own Voice or Father Time.
Also Holy Light has some REALLY fast parts...

I think that there isn't VERY fast parts. Or yes there is that one, but that is just some seconds...

I think someone a long time ago checked with a metronome, and the fastest one turned out to be the section of 'Visions' at 180 bpm.

Stratovarius aren't the fastest band around. That's not what makes them good.

Fastest song I've heard is probably Nile - The Burning Pits of the Duat, at 265 bpm. I'm pretty sure The Bezerker has some even faster songs. Origin also have some extremely fast songs.

i.e. about 7:45 to 8:05. Very fast indeed but I stll think Speed Of Light and Stratofortress are faster. We should ask Jörg :D

You're a drummer. Don't you have a metronome? check it for yourself! :D

Yeah perhaps I'll do it someday, I'm just too lazy :p
.
EDIT : I checked the tabs in GP, it seems both Visions and Stratofortress are 175 bpm and Speed Of Light is "only" 165, like Learning To Fly. I can't find the Find Your Own Voice one though.

The rhythm section is where the true speed of any band or song lies.
