Yes he was, and the faster we can forget about Avantasia the better this thread can get. Anyway since we're on power metal, anyone heard Stratovarius' new work yet? I heard that its somewhat good. Nothing like the old stuff of course, but still decent.Sounds good on paper, but he's about a decade late to the idea, in fact wasn't he on Avantasia's metal opera part 1 and 2?
it has its highs and lows, but with highs like the title track, pressure, temporary peace and release it's hard for me to rank it lowerA Fine Day to Exit? Seems an unusual choice to be so high.
