New website design

Post by rikkertje » Mon Nov 08, 2010 5:06 pm

So new album = new website design if you ask me!

I hope they will put a little more work into it this time. I mean, no copy/paste Wikipedia articles with the [edit] buttons still in them. Would love if every band member wrote his own little piece of information. Would make the site much more professional. Any chance of that happening Jens?

And because I love the Darkest Hours/Elysium artwork I think the site would look very cool with that theme.

What do you people think?

Yes please!

Especially if the guys themselves write information about themselves like on the Sonata webpage.

True, the website needs in the next weeks a new style according to Elysium album!

How many times did you guys watch the Deep Unknown video?
I watched it....once. :lol:

Its a bunch of overindulgent theatrical nonsense. I'd take a good live video over it any day.

I watched it seven times in a row trying to catch a meaning. And by seven, I mean two.

Probably they will do a new site, but I prefer the design of Polaris!
The cover of Polaris is more beautiful for me!

:user: It would be strange to keep the Polaris artwork on the new site.
But its also pointless to keep redesigning the site every time they release a new album. I think they should stick with a design that is independent from the album artwork- that way it can stick around for a while. :)

stratovarius has NEVER been a band that keeps up to date their web site too much. I thats what I expect them to keep doing.

I love it when bands change their site design with every album. Helloween does it all the time and I think it keeps things fresh.

Yep they kinda have a thing going with the satelite. Maybe keep that up and change the back ground.

Also ignore button? :shock:

Oh, I'll have to see the whole new artwork to decide, but Polaris was... mmm well... refreshing :) and I had it on my phone as a theme :D

Oh the forum styles... I use the Dark Sky one... :beer:
