One of the best and one of the most underrated bands ever I've ever heard.
Power metal, no way in hell this is a pure heavy.
Europe guy: Hey, have you heard about Stratovarius?
US guy: Strato what?!
Europe guy: I don't know you.

Get the stratovarius mug.
One of the best modern power metal bands in existance today, comprising of Timo Tolkki on guitar, Jari Kainulainen on bass guitar, Timo Kotipelto on vocals, Jörg Michael on drums, and Jens Johansson on keyboards.

Despite the many difficulties they've experienced since 2003 and early 2004, there is still a glimmer of hope for all the true fans of Stratovarius that a new album will be released in 2005 or so.

Some of their previous work includes:

Fright Night (1989)
Twilight Time (1992)
Dreamspace (1994)
Fourth Dimension (1995)
Episode (1996)
Visions (1997)
Destiny (1998)
Infinite (2000)
Elements - Part One (2003)
Elements - Part Two (2003)

NOooooooooooooooooooo...ooooo!!! They mustnt stop their music and Timo K. (singer) must come back!!! Don't care if the other still there but want to hear my angel sing again!

I just love listening to his voice! (and ofcours admiring his long golden hair)

The music just takes you away... It's just breathtaking and sometimes it really makes you cry for more (or just cry... the lyrics possesses much emotions)

So... just listen to them... buy a cd or two... they're great and will always stay in my heart... I think I will never get bored listening to their music (so is the music of "HIM")
Songs you should definately listen to:
Elements, Black Diamond, Paradise, Infinite, Keep the Flame, ...

Get the Stratovarius mug.
A metal band from the 1980's to the present. Timo Tolkki is the mastermind and guitarist behind it, with Timo Kotipelto doing vocals.

However, the band's future is unclear as Timo and another stratovarius member have left the group due to a dispute.

Stratovarius is primarily a Finnish/European band with most of its fans in Japan and South America.
Dude who's that obese man?
Dude its Timo Tolkki! He's a jerk; he made Kotipelto leave the clan because he acts like "the boss" of the clan and refuses to accept new ideas.
