"I hope it comes out next month but since translations take time I don´t know exactly when it will be done."

Just a notable quote about his biography. Looks like it might not be coming out early this November like planned.

Pretty decent interview....

I totally agree with the interviewer and Tolkki about Age of Aquarius: some of the best lyrics I've ever read. It's hard to describe the style of AoA but I'd describe it as spiritual metal and I love it. Only gripe I'd have is that I wish the album had a little more uptempo songs, but that's not how it was intended to be so I accept that and like it for what it is

I still do respect him as a person and also as a musician.
I'm not just blindly defending him and I think Strato did the right thing continuing (and I do cal it Strato even without Tolkki).

:?: But why does it have to be released in all languages at once? Usually, one version is released and the others follow, like with Nightwish's book. If it was written in English, which could be predicted to sell the most, why not release that on schedule and the others later? Just curious about that decision.

Good point! Why to release all languages at the same time? Translates happens mostly after the original version releases if release is popular. Maybe Tolkki knows that it will be popular :lol:
