STRATOVARIUS: 'Black Diamond' Performance Clip From 'Under Flaming Winter Skies' DVD Available

A performance clip of the song "Black Diamond", taken from the forthcoming STRATOVARIUS DVD and Blu-ray, "Under Flaming Winter Skies - Live In Tampere", can be seen below.

The news of drummer Jörg Michael's departure from the Finnish melodic metallers STRATOVARIUS in September 2011 was a shock for all of the band's fans.

To say goodbye to a friend, hero and member who characterized STRATOVARIUS' sound for over a decade, the group embarked on a five-show farewell tour of Finland in November of last year.

"The rest of us just has to accept Jörg's decision with a lot of sadness and wish him all the best for the future. But we can also assure that the band will still go on", says STRATOVARIUS singer Timo Kotipelto.

Before coming back with a brand new studio album in 2013, STRATOVARIUS will release a two-hour DVD filmed and recorded in Tampere, Finland on November 19, 2011. This is one of the very last shows the band played with Michael.

Due on June 29 via earMUSIC, "Under Flaming Winter Skies - Live In Tampere" marks the end of an era as well as a new beginning. Hits and classics like "Under Flaming Skies", "Speed Of Light" and "Hunting High And Low" as well as exclusive bonus material (30-minute documentary about the band's history, exclusive interviews with each member as well as a special comment from Jörg Michael about the reasons to leave the band) makes it a must-have for every fan and a real collector's item not to be missed.
