Tolkki live

Post by mango » Tue Jul 05, 2005 2:54 pm

I know that Tolkki doesn't sing anymore on the Strato cd's and so. But I was wondering if Tolkki could sing an old strato song like Future Shock, Fright Night, The Hands Of Time,... on the next tour. Because I really like his voice and I would really like to hear it live one time in my life.

Could this be possible or should I dream some more. :(

I like Tolkki's voice, too!
Yes, I'd love to hear him sing one of the older songs like Wings of Tomorrow, Eyes of the World, Tears of Ice, Lead Us into the Light.

Or, one of his Solo Album songs.
In any case, I'm sure most Fans would love this! But, its up to him, of course. He is under no obligation to us whatsoever. But, it would be such a treat! :)

What do ya say, TT? :headbang:

Yes, I like that song, and it would be appropriate about Stratovarius.
Sort of? I mean, now they have a bright future it seems.

BTW, no matter what song TT would sing I am sure he'd get a standing ovation from the fans. ;)

I'd love it if they alternated, Tolkki sings Pre-Kotipelto Strat, and Kotipelto sings Fourth Dimension onwards.

But thats just me :o

Or.....Tolkki could have a song on a Strat CD here and there, that would ROCK.

A friend of mine who listened to the new album (this dumbass :twak: )
said that there is a song, where Tolkki tells something at the end.

Is it true ? :?

I hope that Tolkki doesn't sing, but they could play "Lord of the Rings" from Tolkki's first solo album. It's AWESOME!

Yes, TT has a nice, deep voice. What did he say? His own words, or does he read something some philospher wrote?

I'd really like to hear Tolkki singing again. I wondered if TT and TK would both sing in some of their songs. First Tolkki sings the first part, then Kotipelto the second and in chorus them both...
...
That would be f*cking awesome!

Of course I want him to sing one song live. Though, not more, or max 2 songs. In other songs, he should be doing backing vocals.

who here would actually want to hear hold on to your dream, from dreamspace, the electric version with TT singing?

No. He's much better :D Well in fact his voice didn't change very much but it has much better production. And if you haven't got HTL yet, you can order it very cheap (5€) from Nulear Blast, seems it didn't sell very well... And about the duet between the two Timos, TK once said he proposed it but TT refused :/

Seems that Tolkki's name don't sell very much :(
Anyway, I'm maybe going to buy it from CDON, because I have already to plan to buy some cds (some Iron Maiden and other stuff). I have also ordered there stratovarius new album's digipack...

Sound so "holy".
That "and after that, man, is finally, free" sounds so good... lyrically. I haven't hear that.

The Piano really darkens it also.....Piano ends right as Tolkki is about to say "Man, Is Finally, Free" and he says it so soft, and then the song is over :)

It's not Tolkki, it's this guy "Starbuck", reviewer of Imperiumi.net and a wrestler. That's all I could find with some Google action :D

This is what someone* (Tolkki, Starbuckl, Whatever says at the end of Back To Madness:

Don't scroll down if you don't want to know!:


























































SPOILER:
Have you ever been hurt? Have you ever been...abandoned?
Have you ever been truly...scared? Have you ever felt you don't belong here? Have you ever felt like you don't have a home? Have you ever felt you don't have a chance? From the moment of birth, we are already - dying. Death is the only true salvation. Through death, man is reborn. Like a butterfly born out of a caterpiller. And after that, man is finally free...(Jorgie's kids start mumbling).

That is really profound. I like it. :) Sounds kinda religious, though, and I'm not that much into religion these days. But, it is a good, thought-provoking speech. Good end to a song. :)

You can make a choice not to read, tard.

And yes, he should sing more. One or 2 songs per show, really its not that terrible idea.
