According to Metal From Finland, STRATOVARIUS guitarist Timo Tolkki and AMORPHIS guitarist Esa Holopainen will appear on the Finnish TV channel MTV3 on June 6 at 8:50 a.m. to discuss the "exporting of Finnish music."STRATOVARIUS recently entered Sonic Pump studios in Helsinki, Finland to begin recording its new album (the title of which consists of two separate words that both start with "R"). An early 2008 release is expected. AMORPHIS's new album, "Silent Waters", is scheduled for release on August 29 (Finland)/August 31 (other countries). Like its predecessor "Eclipse", the new CD will be thematically based on an episode from Finland's national epic, the "Kalevala".
