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.

The source was me, and the method used was a metronome (yeah I finally got round to changing the battery :D)

*now playing Nile - 'The Burning Pits of the Duat' (265 bmp) *

Strato aren't really that fast, if you go into the extremes.

Well Dragonforce are probably the fastest Power metal band around. They're fast alright.

But Origin blow them away in terms of speed. Most technical death metal bands are way beyond anything power metal comes up with...

In terms of speed, Death Metal bands are the winners by far :lol: They make Dragonforce look like My Dying Bride.

Note: my opinion is a bit one-sided. A lot of people disagree with me :)

To me, Dragonforce are a cliché, and a band of guys who like to show off. They're extremely fast (too fast for me, yes. but that's not the main problem) and extremely.. cheesy, with cheesy melodies and lyrics.

Plus their live attitude is horrible. Even Cradle of Filth have a better attitude towards the audience.

My opinion. htcdude is going to bash me for saying this :D

dragon force iis really fast but i dont like their music at all... to non sense fast songs.

Rhapsody has a lot of fasts songs but they are what i call " a computer band " ( rhapsody fans will kill me but open another thread to do that so we dont disturb this thread )

Sonata has really fast songs and his drummer is really good to.. jorg 2 jeje:P

well in strato.. lets see visions tempo of 185 mmm also find your own voice, probably one of this two

Arrogance in general, total lack of respect for the audience, because they think calling them "fuckers", "assholes" and "cocksuckers" is cool and metal.

Plus all of them make Janick Gers look like a Doom Metal guitarist. Always jumping around (I have no idea if they made any mistakes, since you were unable to understand anything they were playing :) It was all noise) and making 'tricks', like at the end of every song they all met at the center and.. jumped?

Silly, really.

Truthfully, my mother is the true StratoFan, not me. i like some of their songs very much but i am no expert. I think Speed of Light from what i have heard would be fastest. Find Your Own Voice? I need to check that one out.

i haven't heard all of their songs but i think no turning back is really fast, and hard to play on the drums, mainly because of how long jorg is keeping his feet move. speed of light is no doubt in my mind a fast song, i love the guitar solo. but if you want to hear some flippin fast feet listen to "Seed Awakening" by nevermore!!!!
stratovarius is awesome!

Stratovarius sure has many songs with fast and even faster parts :D But if I right remember, Tolkki once said in an interview that he finds "The Speed Of Light" to be the most challenging song to play, because it's fast from beginning to end.

Stratosphere is about 320 bpm. Stratofortress and Speed Of Light are about 350 bpm I think (you guys divide the tempo by 2).

1. Visions = 182
2? Stratofortress = 180

No Turning Back = 167
Glory Of The World = 150
Rebel = 140

You are free to correct me, but that's what I measured.

It seems that you are multiplying them by 2 (the metronome I'm using only goes up to 230 :D). Well, doesn't matter really, it's the same speed, only the length of the notes change.

Stratofortress and Speed of light, I think .....

i think dragonforce ballads and melodies are their merit. for me they come up with lots of memorable melodies for singing and instrumentation.

Ride Like the Wind is a fast one, too. But not the fastest.
