STRATOVARIUS: New Audio Interview With TIMO KOTIPELTO
- Feb. 13, 2013
On January 21, Jason Saulnier of the MusicLegends.ca web site conducted an interview with vocalist Timo Kotipelto of Finnish/Swedish melodic metallers STRATOVARIUS. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
STRATOVARIUS' new album, "Nemesis", will be released on February 22 via earMUSIC. The CD will be made available as a standard 11-track edition as well as 13-track special edition. A taste of the new studio album can be enjoyed with the limited-edition EP "Unbreakable", released on January 25.
STRATOVARIUS are hailed as one of the most influential and successful symphonic metal bands in the world and they have managed to establish themselves as one of the metal scene's heavy names. The new album, "Nemesis", unites all the best traits of the band's melodic, powerful, fresh and technically elaborated metal, all spiced up with an incredible sense for melody.
The album was produced and mixed by Matias Kupiainen and mastered by Mika Jussila from Finnvox studios, who has a long history with the band.
"Nemesis" has a dark and more modern sound compared to the band's last album, "Elysium". It clearly shows how much the band has matured and grown as songwriters. At the same time, the band focused all their attention and work into creating and recording "Nemesis". Singer Timo Kotipelto spent three weeks recording the vocals in a cottage in the Finnish countryside.
"Nemesis" track listing:
01. Abandon 02. Unbreakable 03. Stand My Ground 04. Halcyon Days 05. Fantasy 06. Out Of The Fog 07. Castles In The Air 08. Dragons 09. One Must Fall 10. If The Story Is Over 11. Nemesis
STRATOVARIUS in June 2012 announced the addition of drummer Rolf Pilve to the group's ranks.
